    I got my standard black and orange indie vinyl editions yesterday. Did anybody get a shipping confirmation for the deluxe vinyl from anima.technology? Btw. new merch is online at w.a.s.t.e.

    Thom Yorke - ANIMA

    My guess is they tried Dawn Chorus in the AMSP sessions and couldn't get it right.. so Thom kept fiddling with it and ended up with something he liked solo. It was the name of their company at that time. So -- still no link for Ladies and Gentlemen?
  5. Oh damn, thank you! Don't have access right now as I'm travelling, but do you know if that show is on the Hub?!

    KID A/Amnesiac 20th anniversary reissue

    It's been said before, but as much as I love the fact that OKNOTOK happened and the whole white cassette thing, considering everything that came out of the Minidiscs leak, they did make some odd choices. They should have put one of the full-band versions of TLW on the cassette, along with the TLW tape loop. That would then tell the whole story of the song after having released the final version on AMSP the previous year, like releasing the making-of documentary after the movie comes out. Here's the song, here's the tape loop (explaining the Pulk connection), and here's an example of why this song took 20 fucking years. They definitely released the wrong Lift, and we might never know why. Some odd inclusions on that tape too. Like the recording of the fridge buzz. It's kind of a fun inclusion but considering it wasn't used anywhere on the album it's a bit of a waste of space - wasn't it used on one of Thom's Karma Police demos on the Minidiscs or am I misremembering that? Thank God we got the Minidiscs.

    Maybe we'll finally get the uncensored version of Ed's diary, where he tells us what he's really thinking.

    Nah he politely infers how good it'd work on a solo record and they sort of go 'well... guess he's owed one.' Dawn Chorus, Black Swan are two of his top five tracks.

    Yeah this band nails most promotion, except when they intentionally don't want it (The King of Limbs, Tomorrow's Modern Boxes) and even difficult-y sounding solo project must have had some serious money poured into it. But Kid A is one of those very very rare albums that seemed to help the internet grow and also be the result of it (Neutral Milk Hotel, Wilco probably other examples but I don't especially like those records). Tapping into leaks, dodgy connections, and those smorgasbord diary-ish, art journal looking websites were really part of the 'feel' of Kid A. Hope they go all out.

    KID A/Amnesiac 20th anniversary reissue

    Would quote but just about every post on this page is being referenced. I think the slew of unreleased material was pretty overwhelming. Even the one hour white tape had a bit on it and then of course the dialogue and disappointment around Lift and the other polished songs took most of the conversation. Really it was a pretty incredible backlog of information. There's some great alternate takes that are borderline rude: Motion Picture Soundtrack, Lift. Plenty of grails like the OK Computer attempt at True Love Waits. Some really nice soundscapes, funny little demos, and some songs so good you wish they'd retouch them – Attenzione, Tomorrow Night in Paris. I think the thing about those unreleased tracks is you can see how close they were to another Bends and keeping down the track of easy popularity. With a Kid A release, it'll be interesting to see what side they were towing toward... were some versions really, properly experimental or were there heaps of Optimistic-like tracks? The trivia and unearthing of song's trajectories, their histories, what bits were deleted and what were carried over (sometimes 10 years later) is interesting. Such a cool and surprising insights into their creative process. Never thought we'd get introspections like that from this band.

    Yeah this. It's probably even more insane with the Kid A tracks given all of the experimentation going on.

    Really in love with the old version of Last Flowers from the minidiscs, can't believe they didn't release that as a b-side.

    Thom Yorke - ANIMA

    to me its a perfect companion piece to daydreaming thematically and texturally and I think it would have made an ideal closing track on amsp. it feels almost like a conclusion to that emotional thread and could have gone a long way to making that album a more complete concept. that said its strong enough that it deserves to be the centerpiece of this body of work so its all good
  16. Played in Osaka Sept 30, 2001 as well.

    Thom Yorke - ANIMA

    Do you ever wonder if thom writes a tune and thinks “hey this is Radiohead level (Dawn Chorus) but I should probably keep it for my solo thing so it’s not shit” (everything else on the record)

    KID A/Amnesiac 20th anniversary reissue

    There must be some either normal or adapted formats that will allow them to release whichever archival recordings from the sessions that they wish! Digital download is obviously an option! I sort of think that an interactive web space may be created; as that was particularly a crucial part of the KID A period. it may be that there are a number of recordings that would work within a special archival release, but then some additional ones (such as soundscapes and snippets) would be embedded there either to hear, download or both!

    KID A/Amnesiac 20th anniversary reissue

    AHEM - "I Don't Want To Hurt You," "Attenzione!" and "Tomorrow Night In Paris" would beg to differ!! And let's not even start talking about Thom's funky cloak!

    KID A/Amnesiac 20th anniversary reissue

    Yes. The best part of all the NOTOK/Minidiscs stuff wasn't the unreleased tracks (turns out they're all boring and not worthy of release) but the light it sheds on the music we know. Stuff like learning that LIAGH and Exit Music were once the same song, or how Nude got its name, or hearing how the different bits of Paranoid Android were recorded separately and stitched together. Brilliant.

    I don't particularly care about unreleased demos of new songs but I definitely want to hear paths not taken on the Kid A/Amnesiac tracks.

    Yeah FMA for me too. Well, as long as it doesn't have the Blair lyric. I like the MPIE version the best. Edit:. The one devilhood did is probably the best.

    KID A/Amnesiac 20th anniversary reissue

    I’m not really super interested in any unreleased songs at this point tbh, especially anything that would’ve been out around Kid A. Maybe Follow Me Around I guess but I can’t even remember anything else we would’ve known of by then, that we haven’t already gotten. That is, unless they have some very high quality takes of songs we’ve never heard of before.
