    It's funny to see Thom and Jonny be like "it's not very interesting" and then Thom puts out the Suspiria Unreleased Material on streaming services.

    Tomorrow Night in Paris is amazing. I hate it when people say that sort of thing but it really is amazing. It's okay to say it now! "Come on, come on". New fans on reddit are still amazed that there is a second In Rainbows disc but us old fans can really appreciate this release of old and odd recordings from the OK Computer era. Ash and I have been probably the oldest fans of the band at least from the Radiohead MB aspect. From Followmearound with Beryl to Greenplastic to Atease. This is so incredible. I am drunk but that is okay cuz this is a great time to be an old fan of the band. Enjoy boys and girls. Our boys are one of a kind. Enjoy!

    There are people out there that think Radiohead fans are pretentious. There are also people out there that would buy a Coldplay album over a Radiohead album. On this forum, for the most part, we are here because of a band we love. If I share something, it is for the same reason. Also, that video was actually intended as a Father's day gift, and not my original reason for creating this post. To clarify 1) The MINIDISC remaster is only going out to people who request it by contacting me personally and prove that they have purchased the original album from bandcamp. 2) I really wanted help with deciphering the lyrics from the original recording. Thanks for the apology though. This is the internet, and we all talk shit now and then.

    This is like I'm marrying my girlfriend next month and someone has leaked the nudes and I haven't seen her naked because I'm a good Christian man and now the nudes have disappeared from the internet and I'm picturing her tits by people's descriptions.

    Doesn't sound like there's any malicious here by doing the remaster and then posting. However, it's REALLY bad form to do it without the permission from the taper. There can be mitigating circumstances, especially if its an old recording and taper is inaccessible, but that doesn't apply here. Some folks think they're god's gift to audio post production, armed with an EQ and multiband compressor. We all have to start somewhere, but I'd recommend taking things slow and learning the craft before posting stuff. Or else you end up creating masterpieces like this: At the very least, ask Jesus for permission first before you decide to "restore" his picture.

    Been away a while... yes the files on CI are down, but I still have them all and can upload. Edit: there you are. https://we.tl/t-Z8FZUiYwMI MP3s, I do have flacs somewhere, but come one, these were originally provided as mp3s.

    I feel I am the man with the most complete account of the Nigel's Bad Blood theory. They made HTTT in a rush. Several members of the band, and Nigel, have expressed regrets over not spending more time on it. Nigel says it's his least favourite of the albums he's done with them. Sources: Wikipedia article, under the "band opinions" section. They fell out over the album in the mixing stage. Thom: "We finished it and nobody could let go of it. 'Cause there was a long sustained period during which we lived with it but it wasn't completely finished, so you get attached to versions and we had big rows about it ... For me it was the last straw." Source. Nigel said "some of the original rough mixes from those first sessions are what you hear on the record. About a third of them actually". Source. Radiohead have given mixed accounts of why they didn't hire Nigel again for IR, initially. Ed said they wanted to get "out of the comfort zone" (source) but later Colin denied this and said Nigel was just busy with other bands (source). Nigel said this about the period later: "We had a little holiday from each other. The band tried to record on their own, which – surprise, surprise – didn't work. Then they tried working with someone else, which also didn't work." (source) Here's the final thing, the one thing I don't have a source for. About ten years ago Nigel gave a talk to music production students at Goldsmiths University in London. This was recorded and put on Soundcloud at some point, but it's long since deleted, so everything I say here comes from memory and hence is unreliable. But I remember him talking with some frankness about how dissatisfied he was with the mix of HTTT, and saying specifically "it sounds brown". I also have a very foggy memory of him saying something like "And I could say more about that, but... well, I won't..." but this could of course be a false or exaggerated memory. All of this made me wonder if there was a bit of bad blood following HTTT, but as the band (even Thom) seem to have come round to accepting HTTT's flaws by the time they were doing interviews for IR, clearly whatever wounds may have existed had healed. And as Twist said, they can't have been that unhappy with each other because Nigel did The Eraser right after HTTT. So all of this is just speculation and they're probably best mates and bumming each other daily.

    I don't get when people say things like 'a typical Thom Yorke record' or 'one of his best solo songs.' What is a typical sound from him? The Eraser and Tomorrow's Modern Boxes sound pretty markedly different. The former is skittery and beat driven and a little more reliant on guitars and basses as well as choruses, structures that fill the personality of the song... Tomorrow's Modern Boxes seems completely made with computers and is slower, more hazy, far more electronic, and there's almost no lyricism in comparison.

    wait what people are complaining about this? This is an absolutely A++++++ response from the band. They're giving away 18 hours of music and the proceeds are going to a climate action group. If you're whinging about this then you can honestly go f*** yourself.

    After several listens, I'm surprised anyone prefers anything other than the Disk 15 version. The loudness and energy of that one is just balls-to-the-wall great. It's basically a studio-quality version of the legendary Pinkpop performance. The two on Disk 16 sound significantly subdued by comparison. Damn, I'll admit that I kind of forgot about Lift after they released that tepid OKNOTOK version, but this has made me remember why it's so special. Sad that only extremely hardcore fans will ever know the Disk 15 version. It deserves widespread recognition.

    Well, all I can say is I hope you enjoy the many number of free recordings released already (and many by me!). I'd say focus more on those rather than the stuff that isn't released. Especially if you're not taping/producing material.

    /Reddit is a pretty decent forum for Radiohead related fan topics. Love how the same questions are asked hourly Incase you missed the last 30 times it’s was asked in the last 15 mins. All the fan art and spooky weird personal over reacting to Radiohead’s music. And you can post your Radiohead collection of 2 cds from Walmart and get plenty of upvotes and than share your 1993 tour t shirt that Thom signed and get down voted cause some 15 year old thinks it’s a fake.

    Thanks y'all. I got lucky and had "good" cancer. Low risk of recurrence. I should have many years ahead of me in which to think back nostalgically about the collagen I used to have. But as I've noted elsewhere, it's why Decks Dark is such a meaningful song for me. I listened to AMSP almost exclusively during my first year of treatment, because I found it extremely soothing. A few measures into BTW a deep thrumming string note kicks in, and something about the resonance of it causes part of my brain to just unclench, like taking an auditory xanax. All of Daydreaming but especially the orchestral part at the end has the same effect. And then the lyrics of Decks Dark would come along and just reach in and put a finger on the whole experience I was having... that whole first verse, right? Read it in the context of having a major medical diagnosis. Tumor dimensions on pathology reports, this dread circumference. The grass grows over me? At risk of being overly emotional about Radiohead lyrics for this board, I will just say that the song was a dark comfort to me. I drove myself to six weeks of radiation, five days a week, just enough time to play BTW through DID on the way in. Every time, without fail. On my very last day, when DID came on I suddenly heard the lyrics to it as though for the first time: so let me go upon my way... into another life. Released. It's going to be tough for Radiohead to top AMSP for me. I hope I love LP10 for entirely different reasons though.

    here's what I think: For a few weeks they've each had CDs of unmastered 'rough' mixes like what was leaked with HTTT and after extensive listening they went back to do the FINAL mixes, adding any cool extra bits that were required (e.g. the cutting up of the drums on Myxomatosis). Now it will be ready for mastering, which takes a couple of days or something. I just hope it's mastered well. Some albums are mastered too loudly and they 'clip' (i.e. distort slightly at loud parts)

    I wanted to try and finish a version of Maybe This is Love. Not using the original audio though, but by attempting a faithful cover with some improvisation and a loop pedal. Can someone please help me with the lyrics? What on earth is Thom singing? I managed this transcribe this during a heightened state of analytical confuzzlement. Maybe this is not the reason This is not the answer so Maybe just get it back Just like a melody line Nobody else can solve your eyes Maybe this is alright You're just going to look to the end Someone's got [cuts out] a way to get back A way to make you whole again Matters will be fine, you will sigh, you will sigh more Maybe we'll swallow you whole You're just looking back at yourself Maybe when the time has come You're just gonna look at yourself Again

    I asked Nigel to sign my copy of HTTT and he broke the CD in half then pushed me onto the ground and called me a "honky" - I'm not even white.

    Also, just because I don’t feel like it’s been said yet - fuck the narcs from Reddit who were originally trying to report this to the band so that none of us would be able to hear this right now. What a bunch of fucking hall monitor-ass nerds.

    being young is not an excuse. There are (or were) plenty of young at easers. The difference is that at ease was founded at a time when bootlegs, b-sides, and tour info where not readily available anywhere else on the internet. Participation on an internet forum about the band was far less common among casual fans. You were probably a hardcore fan if you were here getting b-sides and bootlegs. reddit seems to enable the kind of hysterical, unnecessary fanboys and dumb, casual fans that would have never been tolerated here. This place was full of knowledgeable, seasoned fans, so asking stupid questions or waxing on about your radiohead devotion made you seem lazy and juvenile. It happened, but you would totally be judged for it.
