    Missed that news. Thanks.

    Testifying when? Was this reported?

    AMSP is a bit wet.

    Every final track has a final feeling to it. That's because they're the final track.

    RADIOHEAD LP10

    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.

    I miss the days when Radiohead did extensive interviews breaking down the recording of each tracks. How can they not have told the story of True Love Waits?

    AMSP was a bit too acoustic if you ask me. I'd be happy for Thom to never touch an acoustic guitar ever again.

    Source for that? Sounds dubious to me. And if there were a finished version in the vaults, it would have been released by now, like Ill Wind was.

    Thom's bass part in the live version of Amazing Sounds of Orgy is really funny. I want everyone to agree with me on this. It's just really, really funny.

    Honestly quite surprised by this. No one ever seems to mention it as a banger.

    Man of War is so boring. I know the old versions had their admirers, but is there anyone out there who loves the studio version? Anyone?

    Oh, so it was just this episode of the OK Podcast.

    What is this? Sounds intriguing but now "unavailable".

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

    Podcast chat with a sax player on The National Anthem. Tells some nice stories. https://okpodcast.com/3/

    I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about, duassences.

    I started writing one of those 33 1/3rd books about HTTT a few years ago. It was going to be awesome - I'm a writer by trade, and I've no shortage of brilliant opinions about Radiohead, which is why all my posts are so incredible. But I started feeling a bit embarrassed about the thought of being someone who'd written a book about Radiohead, and I shelved it.

    During the "if you are on the top" verse in Bangers and Mash, Thom sounds extraordinarily like Yakko from the Animaniacs.

    Ill Wind getting single release

    Man, I dig it like that. It's just percussion and voice, almost like Idioteque. And that means there's space for the vocal harmonies to flesh themselves out. I love how skeletal it is. And that's why it's dramatic when we have guitar and bass in the second verse.

    Ill Wind getting single release

    I don't get this at all. It was a sparse arrangement but that's what was so cool about it. All the elements stood out in definition. It wasn't just the jumble of noises that the studio version became. And it had contrasts! When Jonny's riff comes in on that version it's awesome.

    Ill Wind getting single release

    Yes! That's exactly it. That's the other line that's weird. If "ne - ver - be" each had the same length it would work.

    I know it sounds mental but I find Identikit genuinely a bit queasy. Something about the dubby arrangement and the cartoonishness of the choir, the way it's so noodly, and the amount of tinkering with the editing and drum EQing. It was amazing on the TKOL tour. Clean and poppy and sharp. It had definition and contrast and drama. I've always been on the fence about the Videotape debate, but Identikit is a tragedy.

    Nah, it's not that. It's just where he chooses to break up the syllables. Like in the first line, "your distance" comes weirdly early.

    Said it a million times but once you sing "I will see you in the next life" you can't keep singing. You have to stop singing at that point.

    The one thing that bothers me about Ill Will is some of Thom's phrasing. Like, he breaks the syllables up in a few weird places.
