    I did a pet test and my rabbit hates Let Down

    This isn't reddit

    This really isn't brilliant. Scary for the band and genuinely sad for her. That's a genuine mental illness. It's not funny, light-hearted piss taking. It's actually sad.
  3. Sorry, bad timing over the weekend so I'll dig them out this week.
  4. Yeah and they're all labelled like R98? I've got them but they're on an old computer. Been meaning to transfer all the files over because there's a lot of live shows, demos from a lot of bands circa 2007-2016 on there. Gimme a bit? Unless someone else has them?

    I absolutely hate reddit and especially the music forums. The utmost positivity, the shaming of thoughtful or unique commentary or content if it doesn't align to the main half-a-dozen trends. But considering how expensive any record is off of Waste, you have to be a bit peeved to not get a tracking notice. Or to know when it's shipped. And there is something nice about sitting down and really taking in something you've looked forward to. It is a privilege and a nice part of life for the average suburbam shitheaded schmuck. I waited 24, 36 hours or so to listen to Anima after a haircut, in the winter sun, with a pint of dark ale, looking out onto the park and federation buildings. It was genuinely just a nice... kinda bask.

    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.

    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.
