    Ed's got it. WHO said that they think the first signs of the virus are a loss of sense of smell and taste. I joked with my co-workers that we should bring garlic bread on our trouble breathing runs and ask them if they can smell and taste it. If they can't they got it. Ed confirms it. He said he lost his taste and smell first.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/kid-a-radiohead-album-anniversary-ok-computer-thom-yorke-tracklist-a9387851.html There's the link from someone with more than two posts 😉 Article is as much about the Radiohead Public Library as it is Kid A. Nothing earth shattering, but a nice read.

    my first gig was actually Radiohead in 2000 in Warrington , day after Kid A came out. Went with my dad, still remember bits and bobs to this day like the huge tent they were in and Thom playing motion picture soundtrack by himself with lasers behind him.

    Tons of Radiohead covers from quarantine sessions. Ben Gibbard did Fake Plastic Trees, James Blake went with No Surprises, Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell with a nice cover of High and Dry, and actor Sam Neill did a version of Creep on ukulele.

    very great post. great post. simply great. wonderful post. people who diss on heatmiser compared to elliott's solo r losers. they don't know what's what plainclothes man is a top 10 thing he's ever written ever. blackout, bastard john, and cannibal also perfect. neil's stuff is also all great and his solo record as No. 2 is also wonderful.

    it is much stranger to reconsider that situation now! Maybe it was trying to warn us? If not that, a very complex and surprising coincidence as those can tend to be.

    I think it depends if they think it will help people under quarantine types of conditions to release what they have planned to add to the Library? It could be either way, it could also be considered too complicated a time to release anything.

    EOB's album is (finally) out in April - are you expecting something before then?

    That is lovely to have some insight that they are seemingly going to add to the Library! it would probably not be just yet but if so probably before the EOB album is released, otherwise if it will precede the numerical anniversary time it might be this summer??

    With all the Kid A 20th hype, kind of forgot it was the 25th anniv. of The Bends. Several retrospectives out there right now, including this very odd ranking of songs from the album. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/9333975/radioheads-the-bends-songs

    !! Was this in the minidiscs?? Most of the discs i have not yet heard. either way, it is definitely a highlight now! Colin plays such warm and wandering full melody lines, it is a perfect complement to the version we know with the stacatto riffs veering in and out! He even plays that ascending line from Lift near the beginning! There is so much to love about this arrangement!

    I approve of anything Bowie. If you can't tell by my avatar. I even named my pug Bowie. I like him more than Radiohead. David Bowie is my favorite male artist. PJ Harvey is my favorite female artist. Radiohead is my favorite band.

    Imagine being a young fan on reddit and having not seen the band live, and your first live experience is... going to an Ed solo show! 😄 It reminds me of when I was a huge Pink Floyd fan in college and I tried to satiate my desire to see them live by excitedly going to a Roger Waters show, and quickly realizing during the show after seeing the left-handed upside-down guitar playing David Gilmour wannabe Roger had in his band, that I had made a critical error.

    Has there been any more hints that this is coming? Or are we all just assuming? How far in advance did they announce the OKC thing?

    this almost would be for the KID A topic but it feels to fit more here; I had never realized that Space Oddity might have been a real influence for How to Disappear! In particular in the original recording, there is this extended coda that is reminiscent of the special crescendo section!!

    I remember seeing the setlist for Cambridge 2010 for the first time and thinking it HAD to be fake because it had 2 new songs as well as fucking DAILY MAIL and I FROZE UP.?!?! Wild times. I hope we get some really deep cuts and new songs 🙂

    The way he says this, and the fact that the sample went uncredited, makes me worry Thom didn't realise that Colin put a sample of an old Isaac Hayes record on it.

    These are just a few favorites; some that work for me within the context of the song, while others work for me on their own terms. And contrary to the constitution of atease, I'm gonna actually be sincere! (maybe a little too much so!) True Love Waits Perhaps my favorite Radiohead lyric; if not my favorite, the one I think back on the most. I've lived with depression for at least the last six or seven years of my life, and this is a remarkably succinct description of what living with depression feels like to me. Thom correctly delineates between living and merely existing. Fitter Happier "Fitter Happier" prefigures the cut-and-paste lyrical snippets that made up much of the material on Kid A, and I think it's arguably Thom's most successful experiment in that style. Some may find these lyrics juvenile, but I find that they only resonate more as I get older. An endless supply of words have been written about how OK Computer predicted the dystopian side of the Internet age, but really: is there a song that better predicted our increasing infatuation with, and the exponential proliferation of, shallow self-help bullshit? You are now fully optimized. No Surprises Simple, innocuous lyric made transcendent in context of the song. It's another one that resonates with my experience with depression. Shortly after becoming a homeowner I parked outside the house one evening and thought of this line. I had "made it" - a house, a career, a wife, kids, etc. So how could I feel so sad? Moreover, what right did I have to feel so sad? I was very fucking fortunate, all things considered. "No Surprises" is wary of a pretty, "optimal" exterior hiding a hollow interior, and it's captured perfectly at this climactic moment. Motion Picture Soundtrack Just a brilliant opening stanza, juxtaposing the concrete imagery of solitary pleasures we use to cope - "red wine," "sleeping pills," "cheap sex," "sad films" - with their inability to bring us the kind of human connection we yearn for, let alone get us "where [we] belong." It's devastating, but fucking beautiful. Decks Dark I love this opening stanza for the same reason @myth does: it captures, through some very sharp imagery, what it feels like to be thrown into a terrifying situation you can't escape from. It seems reasonable to think that this is a direct reference to Rachel's cancer diagnosis, and that's how I've chosen to interpret it. I received a cancer scare myself last year - I was showing all of the symptoms of a certain kind of cancer - and in the weeks leading up to my operation to verify if I did or not I kept coming back to this song. You want to put your head in the sand, to make it all go away by pretending it's not there, but the thing is so huge - a "spacecraft blocking out the sky," "the loudest sound you've ever heard" - there is no escape.

    Booger bear , you should politely request that Ash make a digital mixtape for you :) :) He is one of the best of all time at that particular medium!! it is even possible to say that nobody does it better!! Your post brought me to contemplate my earlier floatings through these unique light and sound oceans, and being on some of the same islands as Ash!
