    But how absolutely hilarious is Thom's bass part in Orgy from ACL?

    Dollars and Cents has such a slinky feel. Should be a great night Rick. Hope you post a recording again.

    yo so we're doing Amnesiac this saturday at the Vortex in London if anyone fancies it. God knows what it'll end up like, we're getting together the day before again but i"m sure they'll make something great out of it.

    If you see them live with headphones, then you REALLY get TKOL.

    Aside from the areas in which it is completely wrong (Magpie and especially Feral are great), this is absolutely correct. The fan adulation for the live TKOL renditions has always smacked to me of a desperate effort to like TKOL somehow, as if just playing the songs in a band format is a near enough simulacrum of "classic Radiohead" that they can kid themselves into liking them. But it's the songs themselves that are "the problem". It's like when TKOL first came out and loads of fans were saying "oh, you just have to listen to it with headphones". No, if you don't like this sort of Radiohead songwriting you're not going to like it any better with headphones either.

    If the comment about Nude is a reaction to my post, then you misread. I love the album version of Nude and think it's better than the old version.

    I am going to play my dick card (don't worry, I have lots of them) and suggest that thinking the live versions of TKOL songs is the "true" TKOL is what the kids call a basic bitch position. The live versions are great and it's good that they exist. But they're reinterpretations, mutations. If they'd actually been recorded like that they would make no sense at all. The brilliance of TKOL is that it's all weird sculptures and constructions, the kind of thing you can only achieve in a studio with a lot of editing.

    I do think that we'll eventually get those 3 CDs, I really do. And I can't fucking wait. I bet it's got proto Eraser stuff as well.

    The obvious thing to hope from an IR special edition would be the original Videotape. Perhaps they'll have come round to it by then, like they did with I Promise. Thom recorded three CDs of demos for HTTT, and even gave them titles. I'd love to hear those.

    I think Gawpers is a great title. It's a nasty, spiteful little word, and very British. So - very Thom. It might be a pipe dream but I wonder if we might get some sort of rejigged version of HTTT one day. All the band members have expressed regrets over that one, so it might be an opportunity to "correct it". Perhaps let Nigel remix it dramatically (Nigel wasn't happy with the original mix) or overdub new elements... seems unlikely but then I was betting against us getting anything like OKNOTOK.

    The King Of Limbs isn't even that good live. The best songs (Bloom, Lotus Flower, Separator) are good at using the loopy, over-produced, earthy vibe that the album carries. Bloom can be boring as fuck live. Lotus Flower is just a fuzz-fest, but not in a bad way. The crap songs are crap songs because they're lame little experiments they all made pinging off their heads as opposed to great attempts at songwriting. If you're not going to let Thom write a full song, or he isn't going to let himself, you at least need some memorable hooks or a bang-on atmosphere... Morning Mr Magpie, Feral don't have that.
