Late Night Stargazing

The other day on BBC 6Music, Lauren Laverne interviewed the actor Samantha Morton.

As she wrapped up the chat, Laverne asked Morton if there was a record she could play for her.

Her selection is tonight’s record, which when Laverne said she would play it, was greeted with a cheer not just in Morton’s house, but in my flat and, I imagine, in countless other homes throughout the country.

Morton added a disclaimer, something along the lines of “I thought it might be a bit too unsettling to play.”

Which it isn’t, unless you look at the 12″ sleeve:

Aphex Twin – Windowlicker

Or, heaven forbid, you’ve ever watched the full length video for the tune, which you can do here, but please approach with caution:

Sleep well.

More soon.

  1. MAN ALIVE that’s a lot of swearing in the intro of that video. Almost as much as in the scene of The Wire we watched last night which seemed, for about the five minutes of a search of an empty appartment, to consist of nothing but the use of the word fuck.
