No Everything in its Right Place? :o

 

The opening synth would likely give me goosebumps in a live setting, they do that incredible live, but the rest of the track doesn't do much for me. Similar to the live versions of Let Down I've been listening to, it's very evocative at the beginning, maybe it'd be worth hearing them both live just for the opening synth or chords giving an immediate rush.

It is one of life's enduring mysteries, how those so fond of The Bends can't find anything of their later stuff to enjoy. Tbh I struggle with the concept they're 'miserable'. I rewatched the 2003 Jonathan Ross interview again, that perception seems to come from when you just compare them with the outwardly happy music, as though when you cross into the mainstream you abide by those rules. There's plenty of genuinely dour bands who lack the creativity, variety and sense of fun of Radiohead. Not to dismiss the depth of Radiohead's music, but it's the best melancholic pop, and clearly uplifting rather than dour, not easy, they're so musically creative, they've never become a parody of themselves, they've just accepted it's what they do, and continue to evolve naturally retaining the musicality. I think Bjork has been more experimental in her last two albums in terms of unorthodox time signatures, her voice and the music being at odds, it's more avant garde. Not like it matters.

there was no waste presale this time. We're a long way from the no logo tent tour aren't we.

 

Just seen this; we got standing tickets for Manchester because of the waste presale. Didn't realise others had issues getting tickets but we got them a day (or two?) early and it was a piece of piss. Sorry to hear people missed out; I thought all went well for people wanting tickets.

Interesting, didn't see the waste presale, normally I'm all over that.

 

Dublin was a nightmare, wanted standing and was lucky to get anything, seats are decent at least.

After buying all the albums, EP's, a handful of singles and 2 solo albums by Thom Yorke I finally today got The King of Limbs. I bought it last because I was under the impression that it's not well regarded. Maybe I misunderstood but I love it! It's been on repeat for the last 2 hours :wub:.

Just bumping as I re-discovered Cuttooth from the Knives Out EP. So good.

 

The best Radiohead album tracklist lies somewhere amongst Kid A, Amnesiac and their b-sides.

 

Snippet:

No chat around the 18 hours of OK Computer sessions that’s leaked? I’ve been listening to a condensed playlist of the highlights that Matthew Perpetua put together. It’s very enjoyable although I don’t know if I like any of these versions more than the released stuff, but Airbag done in a High And Dry style is cool.

Do you have a link at all?  I hadn't heard of this and it sounds intriguing!

I'm confused by this. It was added to Bandcamp on the 11th saying they didn't want to pay the ransom, but this thread was talking about a copy before that. Was it leaked anyway?

Yep, it was leaked last week (not by the original hacker). So because it was already 'out there', Radiohead decided to make some money for Extinction Rebellion by releasing the material officially.
