    Thanks Mossy i’d love to do Feels but I’m not sure how much commercial appeal that would have. We’re definitely doing Kid A again somewhere else though. Hopefully we’ll not fuck the start of the title track up next time. Amnesiac is next for sure, probably in 3 months time

    here it is: https://ufile.io/odavr we only got together the day before and some of it was quite hard and as a result there are some annoying goofs in places but the vibe is still there, I think. My fault for not organising rehearsals! Thought it may be of interest if anyone is still here. also i didn't think about what to do with EIIRP so i just kind of fucked around. last minute jazz. there's the excuses out of the way. ps arrangements are by me and i'm playing the piano

    Looks like you made it to the reddit page. Will listen from this when I get the chance since it's easier than downloading.

    Just saw this pop up on Reddit: Colin browsing master tapes for what looks like sessions for The Bends... Juicy tidbits include a song called "Interstate 5" and the fact that there's an alternate outro for Lewis (Mistreated) !!! But is this just Colin browsing around for fun, or do you think they're gearing up for a Bends 25th anniversary or something?

    Since about The Bends actually. If this album doesn't produce another hit they'll probably get dropped! Wow Thom looks absolutely worn out in MPIE, I wonder if they'll bother making another album? OMG the album closes with "I will see you in the next life", ah well thanks for the music guys. Well they're on a six-album deal so I guess HTTT could be the last one. "This is my way of saying goodbye"?????? This is it, guys. "Finally I'm free of all the weight I've been carrying"????? This is it, guys. Oh wow there's 9 letters in Radiohead and this is their ninth LP. This is it, guys.

    Fans love to imagine that the most recent Radiohead album will be the last because it makes the moment feel dramatic and romantic and urgent. They've been doing it since In Rainbows came out.

    We could read something into this . . . . "It’s also something I’ve been conscious of from past records that Radiohead have done as well. When we did “Kid A” and “Amnesiac,” we did a lot of visual stuff that was really important to the music. Like the blips—we did these 15-second, 20-seconds, 30-second bits and pieces—which to me, were almost important as what we were doing in the studio. So, I’ve become confused . . . . " So maybe it will just be the "Previously Unreleased Blips" Release. (And one of them will be five minutes. Just BECAUSE.)

    Yes, there is speculation of a live show release from the last tour. In the NA tour they had professional recorders. I saw them at the Columbus show. They might have canceled it but I would wager that if it will be released it will be in May. If it isn't released in May then I assume whatever project they were doing was canceled.

    It wasn't finished. All Thom said was that he liked the song and was pushing for it. They probably didn't work on it too much. It was posted on Reddit by someone, but they were a reliable poster IIRC. I believe it was someone I met at the show I went to, but idk.

    As in the Animal Collective album? That would be brilliant.

    I found myself taken back to both the first time that i listened to KID A, and the earliest days of when I started to listen to jazz..!! Rick, I never thought i would get to return to those moments and experiences! To me it is a clear indication that, even more than i had previously realized, you really have a musical mind and overall self that can reach the essences of why ideas within compositions work the ways that they do, and why they can reach and resonate with people. This allows you and your group to recreate and combine them in ways that are pure. Non-jazz-listeners may be confused by the word pure but it is basically "a location that feels unusually and truly pure" that musicians, with a rich tradition of it occurring within jazz, can reach, and take the listeners and audiences with them. KID A as an album is especially an unusually potent dance between a still purity and a chaotic purity. This is by far one of my favorite jazz recordings, so thank you for creating!! The combination of mic placement, not overpracticing, and the arrangements themselves, it is the same as a classic Village Vanguard recording to me! I am glad to hear that you will continue this method at the Vortex!! Hopefully Feels is on the way this year or next!!

    A rare cool thing from Reddit. Someone found something new hidden in Karma Police.

    I’d read a 33 1/3 book about Radiohead written by Duff, tbh.

    Nirvana doesn't seem like a very apt comparison given they only made three studio albums. There's a pretty clear arc in those three records, and from my perspective they never feel as same-y as Beach House within the same record. I like Beach House generally, but definitely relate to the sentiment of listening to an album and finding little variation, and then experiencing the same from album to album. I did think 7 felt like a change of pace, but didn't much care for it. Nirvana is interesting. Bleach was heavy and pretty unrefined, and only in hindsight did you see the genesis of songsmith Kurt (for example, About a Girl) that emerged on Nevermind. Then In Utero sort of fused the noisier and unrefined side of Bleach with the songcraft and more polished writing of Nevermind. I think that's probably why many feel In Utero is the best summation of what Nirvana was over their career, and fits within an arc that makes pretty clear sense. It is interesting to think about what might have happened after that record had Kurt not killed himself. I do think that if they were five or six records on mining the same sound as those first three records people would have probably started to criticize more. Even Kurt after In Utero acknowledged he wasn't sure how much further they could take their sound with the same lineup and setup, so it's interesting to wonder what might have happened.

    Regardless. Good photos and it is interesting that he is posing with some old Radiohead tapes. Since the tapes were limited with OK Computer I don't think there is a realistic option of doing a Bends Anniversary edition. BUT I really hope they do a Kid Amnesiac. Especially since Nigel said they had a lot of tapes from those sessions. Also, Colin is awesome.

    Maybe it’s part of the Kida stuff and Colin got lost. Only good old things should come from them being bored and digging around the old master tapes.

    I'm a firm believer that Ed has been the reason why Radiohead stayed a cohesive unit. He seems to be the logical no-nonsense guy that is happy to take a punch and retaliate with "I still love you. Let's all calm down OK?". I bet the worst thing he's ever done is infect a computer with a porn virus. Funny how the quiet ones end up being the most ambitious. Phil and Jonny have been very busy as writers. We're still waiting for Ed's WIP album "Dried Fruit" and Colin's collaboration with Sherbert Handcock.
