This Doesn't Deserve Its Own Thread - Radiohead Edition

Recommended Posts

We could read something into this . . . . 

"It’s also something I’ve been conscious of from past records that Radiohead have done as well. When we did “Kid A” and “Amnesiac,” we did a lot of visual stuff that was really important to the music.  Like the blips—we did these 15-second, 20-seconds, 30-second bits and pieces—which to me, were almost important as what we were doing in the studio. So, I’ve become confused . . . . "  

So maybe it will just be the "Previously Unreleased Blips" Release.  (And one of them will be five minutes.  Just BECAUSE.)

The Kid A blips will most likely be part of Kid Amnesiac release if it happens but it looks like it will.

I could see Phil skipping straight to F3

although on a serious note, he's likely the unnamed band member to be testifying in the stage collapse

Radiohead member, father among those to testify at inquest into fatal 2012 stage collapse

By Erica Vella Digital Broadcast Journalist  Global News

An inquest into the death of Scott Johnson at a 2012 Radiohead concert is set to begin late this month, and an unnamed band member, as well as Johnson’s father, have agreed to testify in the proceedings.

Johnson, 33, was killed on June 16, 2012, when part of a massive stage structure crashed down just hours before Radiohead was due to perform at Downsview Park in north Toronto. Three others were injured.

The inquest will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, March 25, 2019 at the Coroner’s Court and will include testimony from 25 witnesses. “They are going to speak about the facts, what took place, what happened in the days and weeks preceding the actual collapse,” said Prabhu Rajan, chief counsel with the Chief Coroner of Ontario.

Your post doesn't read, "This post doesn't deserve its own post."  Which would be internally funny in a thread with this name (and which was so well captured by @Ash).

Otherwise, it seems like you're passing judgment on posting the news item.   Or passing judgment on asking about it---both of which put a chill on conversation.  It shuts down discussion instead of encouraging it.   

The board has new members we haven't heard from.  Maybe more people would join the conversation if it seemed a more hospitable/welcoming place.  A place where we could, you know, relax.

I was referring to the thread itself and was making a pointless stupid post without realizing that it might be seen as responding to what was posted just before said post, sorry.

Bit more on the inquest which began today.   "The inquest, which is expected to last three weeks and hear from roughly 25 witnesses, will examine the circumstances around Johnson’s death, but will not assign blame." Today Scott's dad Ken shared memories of Scott.   Ken said, "The wound doesn't close."  A piano technician showed a video and reported that the stage was swaying and creaking as he was setting up and working.  No name given of the "band member" who is said to be testifying.

"On the opening day of the inquest, Mr Selway described Johnson as a someone with a sense of fun and as a consummate professional "on top of his game" - someone who quickly became a member of the band's extended touring family.

The musician said the stage collapse had a profound impact on all those involved, including the 30 other crew members who were on or around the stage when the incident happened.

He described how band members "heard a very loud sound of breaking glass, which reached a crescendo", ran to the stage and saw it had collapsed.

"The collapse has made us vulnerable where we used to feel secure," he said.

The incident has left the band and its crew members on edge about the safety when on tour.

Radiohead - in an abundance of caution - has since adjusted how it designs its stage sets to mitigate potential risks, Mr Selway said.

They have also hired a tour engineer to ensure the stage safety is always double-checked when relying on third parties to provide staging.

Mr Selway said that he hoped the inquest would allow for a full understanding of how and why the collapse happened and would issue strong recommendations to prevent something similar from ever happening again.

The band only returned to Toronto to play in 2018, and held a minute of silence for Johnson during their concert."

Toronto Night 1 Setlist  (EIIRP not TSH or IMBW) 

Must have been so tough for the band/crew/tour family to return to Toronto that night.  Phil in particular deserves a lot of respect for not letting this just become invisible.

WILD HOF speculation (because no drop today, kids.)  The careful wording for tonight's HOF appearances -  "except for a few members of Radiohead".  So let's see.  A few means no less than three,  yah? Meaning no Thom,  and two other absences.  Two band members only.  (Unless the duo are Colin and Stanley Donwood.  Colin plays those five notes, and Stanley holds a pint.)  OKidding aside, Ed and Colin seem the likely duo.  (I know Ed said he doesn't understand such awards, but he's such a NICE guy.)  Guitar and bass--Ed can sing lead.  Harmonizing with David Byrne.  Done and dusted.  

Answer: The duo are Phil and Ed.  Ed looking sharp.

Present Tense is bollocks live. So thin. Sounds like it's got absolutely nothing in it.

Most of the AMSP songs are a bit crap live, and judging by the most recent setlists I'd say the band knows it.  

Best one is probably Identikit but even that doesn't compare well with the 2012 version.
