    18 hours of Ok Computer stuff leaked?

    Of course, because these are not session tapes: these are Thom's personal minidisks. Anything that was recorded in the proper studio sessions is not here. Here we have all demos, samples, live takes and rehearsal takes from the period (summer 1996?) that were deemed interesting enough to keep in preparation for the album recording. And, besides that, there is the minidisk with the final unmastered mixes. There is surely a separate archive of complete (and high quality) studio tapes, but I bet it's pretty uninteresting stuff. That is, the final takes, a ton of alternate takes, isolated vocal and instrumental tracks, background noises and effects, overdubs, etc. of the songs that are in the minidisk of unmastered mixes (all OK Computer minus Lucky plus Lift and the b-sides recorded during those sessions).

    Still can believe that the Airbag riff, the riff, was only added right at the end of the process. It's not on any of the demos, so perhaps it was even added when they were already in the studio sessions. What a stroke of genius (by Jonny, I suppose). It's also interesting that Colin's stop-start bassline was added later. It's lovely to hear him basically figuring it out in real time, in disc 10 (around minute 27).

    I keep discovering new Thom demos here and there. There are just so many. The one with a drum machine in disc 10 right after the Bends 4-track ("I don't want to hurt you") is a total gem.

    Very curious to look at Thom's scribbled titles. Lull is called 'Ed's song', and Attention is always written 'Attenzione' (?). A Reminder demo is called 'Play me this song'.

    I can't believe this original version of Last Flowers. Jonny absolutely shredding, completely different choruses... I mean WHAT?! This is so fun

    By the way, I am splitting the mp3s using https://mp3cut.net/ and it's comically easy, as we say here (unsure if it downgrades the quality, but who cares, it's mostly lo fi demos)

    The LIAGH organ version followed by Thom's acoustic demo is absolutely bonkers (disc 9)

    Best Version of Lift

    Yes but that sequencing does not make any sense, and the final album order is already settled. They must have seen them as singles for later or b-sides.

    Also, LIAGH being born out of Exit Music, the Reckoner-ish drum jam... Were *all* Radiohead songs written before 1999, or what?

    Thom's demos are amusingly bad. Amazing to see that OKC could have very well been a Pablo Honey 2...

    Best Version of Lift

    Indeed, at the time I assumed that was all they had to work with, because it's so clearly not up to standard. Perplexing.

    Full band versions of Attention (both finished and as a working progress) are very nice to have. 100% unknown song until OKNOTOK, and now it appears that they spend quite some time with it. Also, the OKNOTOK version was a Thom solo demo.

    Best Version of Lift

    It's possible that they only had separate tracks (i.e. workable, mixable files) for the version they decided to include. But still, these disc 16 versions make you wonder: they are not only fully finished and mixed, but they even appear in the minidisc that contains the rest of the unmastered album. So it's obviously a finished product. Also, were they considering it for inclusion in the album somehow? Or as a separate single?

    Funny how Creep is "That song". The setup is from the Tel Aviv show -> https://citizeninsane.eu/live/2017/2017-07-19.html Weird that he says "London, UK". Is that a mistake?

    That HTTT-era loose white shirt really was Thom's best look

    It's funny cause they were not explained and yet they were not ignored

    RADIOHEAD LP10

    Not to mention they would try out a new song every couple of soundchecks

    I agree with your second paragraph. Not a good studio effort. Also, Big Boots is a much better title than Man of War.

    RADIOHEAD LP10

    All previous tours featured around 10 songs from the album (+ b-sides) they were touring, and sometimes more. This was still the case in the second year of the tour (2004, 2009). For this reason alone, even if they are putting together cool setlists, bringing back old classics and giving great performances, this AMSP tour hasn't felt as compelling to me as previous ones. Not to mention, of course, the inevitable greatest hits/farewell feel that this gives to the tour. I enjoyed way more my 2012 shows than the one in 2016 — even if the sets look worse, there was a freshness and an adventurousness to what they were doing that is missing now.

    It also contains some awful song titles too. Ful Stop? Why drop the 'The' in Present Tense? And Decks Dark, what the hell is that? Also, Silent Spring >>> The Numbers.
