  1. With regard to potential new Radiohead work, Ed likes to play his cards close to the vest and his comments don't negate Thom writing and sharing songs with the band etc. Optimistically read, his comments just mean the band don't have immediate plans to enter the studio which means no timeline for releasing new material. The timing in "the cycle" is right for working on new Radiohead materials but we know they'll never discuss the nascent stages of anything. As for Kid A/Amnesiac, Covid may have delayed a physical release but no reason they can't put it into production this Fall. Plenty of physical albums being produced now. But fully agree about combining with Amnesiac so they have a large window to consider for releasing.
  2. What are the chances the band is presently working on LP10? I'm the eternal optimist who's been disappointed before (TKOL part 2!) but Thom's debut of Plasticine Figures and the cancellation of his and Ed's solo tours make it more probable than not that Thom is writing new Radiohead material and sharing that material with the band. In fact, they may already be working on reshaping that material into more polished songs for upcoming studio sessions. Movie production has also been halted for months which gives Jonny breathing room as well. Hell, Taylor Swift just announced a 16-song album she wrote during Covid and the Chili Peppers are recording a new album since summer touring was cancelled. So bring on the snark and cynicism, richly deserved of course, but I'm cautiously optimistic for new music at the end of 2020 or early 2021, even if it's just an EP.
  3. Agreed though it would be very nice. Even though the band is more "chill" these days about releasing unreleased demos and recordings, they still want to curate exactly that is released. So we'll get a Kid A version of the white cassette from OKNOTOK, but not the 17-hour Minidisc equivalent.
  4. What was the interview? I know it wasn't Desert Island Discs. Thanks!
  5. Likewise obsessed. Realistically, we won't get the volume of what was in the mini-discs, since it included lots of random and duplicative bits that could have been reduced to 4 amazing discs. Hopefully they'll do something similar
  6. Definitely not Salamanca -- that was the request version which was fun but kind of sloppy.
  7. Thom just confirmed Kid A / Amnesiac 20th Anniversary edition. Discussed how he, Stanely and Nigel have been going through lots of material and that they virtually saved everything on disc.
  8. Yes, but getting a copy isn't for the faint of heart. It involved delving into the depths of Waste Central @ Discord.
  9. I do as well. It's Codex meets Wolf at the Door. Great for headphones, but live shows... probably not so much.
  10. Yeah those '96 soundboard recordings are amazing. I've always appreciated your compilation of the "best" live recordings and we've just been gifted with an amazing treasure trove of high quality recordings of them road testing OK Computer. Lovely stuff.
  11. Any personal highlights (aside from Lift on disc 15)?
  12. I thought the same thing before I saw him in Chicago, December 2018. But I hope you're right
  13. Love the live debut but also like full band with the organ which maintains the emotional resonance while adding additional layers. But YMMV
  14. You can tell Thom was a big Neil Young fan -- so many of the unreleased acoustic tunes have very similar vibe. But obviously he was also being pulled in a totally different direction with the songs that ended up on OKC. Lots of fun stuff but easy to see why so much never materialized.
