    Thom Yorke - ANIMA

    Nah he politely infers how good it'd work on a solo record and they sort of go 'well... guess he's owed one.' Dawn Chorus, Black Swan are two of his top five tracks.

    KID A/Amnesiac 20th anniversary reissue

    Yeah this band nails most promotion, except when they intentionally don't want it (The King of Limbs, Tomorrow's Modern Boxes) and even difficult-y sounding solo project must have had some serious money poured into it. But Kid A is one of those very very rare albums that seemed to help the internet grow and also be the result of it (Neutral Milk Hotel, Wilco probably other examples but I don't especially like those records). Tapping into leaks, dodgy connections, and those smorgasbord diary-ish, art journal looking websites were really part of the 'feel' of Kid A. Hope they go all out.

    KID A/Amnesiac 20th anniversary reissue

    Would quote but just about every post on this page is being referenced. I think the slew of unreleased material was pretty overwhelming. Even the one hour white tape had a bit on it and then of course the dialogue and disappointment around Lift and the other polished songs took most of the conversation. Really it was a pretty incredible backlog of information. There's some great alternate takes that are borderline rude: Motion Picture Soundtrack, Lift. Plenty of grails like the OK Computer attempt at True Love Waits. Some really nice soundscapes, funny little demos, and some songs so good you wish they'd retouch them – Attenzione, Tomorrow Night in Paris. I think the thing about those unreleased tracks is you can see how close they were to another Bends and keeping down the track of easy popularity. With a Kid A release, it'll be interesting to see what side they were towing toward... were some versions really, properly experimental or were there heaps of Optimistic-like tracks? The trivia and unearthing of song's trajectories, their histories, what bits were deleted and what were carried over (sometimes 10 years later) is interesting. Such a cool and surprising insights into their creative process. Never thought we'd get introspections like that from this band.

    Best of r/radiohead

    Yeah that did not happen. 'I didn't listen to the leak because the band didn't want me to' sycophancy is almost exclusive to r/radiohead to broker legitimacy points from one another. No actual person is going to have that outlook. Especially when the band actually officially uploaded it all...

    Gear is just drugs in general, for Brits/antipodes.

    Thom Yorke - ANIMA

    Isn't there some early bio style thing on the band from a quaint music mag where Thom goes on about how he drinks too much. Or loves drinking. Same thing, really. Strange you never see him with a beer on stage. Or anywhere tbh.

    That's right. Didn't they have a big falling out?

    RADIOHEAD LP10

    No wonder he has to hang around provincial bands from like, Worcester, who probably studied in like, Coventry, who don't even get a day off to enjoy Glastonbury before going to some second-rate Polish festival. He probably loves the ego boosts. Sitting around in one of two minivans with a provincial lager going 'yeah well the funny thing about that one is... I was there when Thom wrote it, and if it was up to him it would've sounded like... like this... but I told him not to.' 'Wow Col, that's amazing.'

    RADIOHEAD LP10

    Sam Petts-Davies, the silly fuckin little Welsh git, seems to be extremely chummy with Nige. Guess he's seen him as some sort of protegé. He's been hanging around with him for a while, posting photos, that sort of thing for quite some time. It's probable he's just been following Nigel around like a pathetic lap dog and thus the production credits over a six, 18, 24-month period. He also produced for Frank Ocean. Probably sounds more impressive than it is considering how much that album cost and the flying in and out, constant collaboration on it. He's also about 27 and was working with Radiohead when he was my age. Kind of inexcusable and his sad little website just needs him boasting about his A-level scores to top it off.

    RADIOHEAD LP10

    I think it's just too hard to gauge their intentions for anything. I Promise had absolute minimal changes in the grand scheme of Radiohead song progressions. Structure, lyrics, chords all stayed pretty stoic. And they demoed it a lot. Why didn't that get a release? It's too hard to know the reasons for them possibly re-recording piano parts of reusing them. It's a bit like worrying about what that text from a girl means. It's probably not as interesting as either extreme and you'll never find it. Just put it down. Take what you can from the good bits.

    Nigel’s gay?! Makes sense in retrospect but jeeez. I also recently heard the yarn that Phil had a boyfriend while touring in the 90s?

    Are there any songs Thom's played live, that haven't appeared on Anima/recorded material?
