I hope that if they do another record they find some energy again. I listened to Bodysnatchers the other day and whatever you think of the song, that’s a really great studio performance. I hope they bring some of that back. 

Agreed. I want some oomph, some heaviness, some rock. As much as I love AMSP, I’m hungry for something a bit heavier and with more balls.

I do miss radiohead rocking out. Full Stop is the only sort of up beat rock song theyve put out since IR right, unless I'm forgetting something

Hm!!  Twisted Words, Staircase, and The Daily Mail may fit that concept, but less so specifically what Zane is describing!  Burn the Witch, The Numbers, and Magpie in concert versions are close also! 

There is a, maybe from 2008? video interview with Thom and Ed and i remember how they describe the specific earlier session from which Bodysnatchers on the record originates as being an amazing one!

We're only a few months away from AMSP being four years old. Damn.

The wait between TKOL and AMSP was five years. Yet I don't have any sense that once spring 2020 rolls around it will be about a year until LP10. I feel like this time it's going to be a six year gap at least.

Hm!  It helps that A Moon Shaped Pool allowed them to sort of, more in the sense of being an art collective than an "important band etc", complete their body of work thus far.  Thre is this wholeness to everything ( which I think includes everyones' projects that we know about and have heard as well as all of their personal creatings) at this point!

There are many ways that they can set themselves in slightly or significantly different arrangements too; Jonny has sort of mentioned that he is learning/relearning cello.  Phil and Clive haven't really played together on lots of new songs yet, and of course between the two of them they can add literally anything that makes sound and can be mic'd to their kits!!

Overall they have been allowing their approach to creating and playing music to evolve in ways that can basically happen perpatually now, just as Nigel and Stanley do with their mediums!!

If the comment about Nude is a reaction to my post, then you misread.  I love the album version of Nude and think it's better than the old version.

Listening to IR.  This version of Nude is just fucking ace.

Is there any sort of timeline for the start of the next Radiohead album?
No. I think everything at the moment, because of the coronavirus, is up in the air. We couldn’t even make an album at the moment, even if we wanted to. And everybody is doing their own project. Thom is really massively into his touring. He’s got other stuff coming out. It’s the same with Jonny and the same with Philip [Selway], he’s got his next album coming out next year.

We are talking about stuff. But when you get to a band like ours, what you have to do is move forward in a way that keeps the integrity and the creativity of what you’ve done before. We’re always mindful of that. We’ve been in a band for 35 years, and we don’t work together like we did 10, 15, 20 years ago. We don’t. People have lots of other things going on, so it’s a matter of finding…when we feel that we have something we collectively want to do together.

I think that’s the beauty of what we do. There’s a real honesty about it. We’re not trying to fulfill contracts or maintain a lifestyle that requires us to make albums. We want to do it because we’re inspired to do it and that should always be the case. You should be inspired to work with people and make music rather than feel obligated. I can’t do that. I can’t do it unless I’m inspired, and I think that’s the case for all of us.

Ful Stop and Identikit could have had way more swagger. Sad!

I still prefer the 2012 version of Identikit to what it became. It had some rock to it back then.

The neutered studio version with Thom wailing like a dying cat is a major disappointment though

So Ed said they were due to tour in 2021, now not looking so likely with coronavirus. Im not too fussed on missing out on another tour of LA and New York to be honest.

it is still somewhat puzzling that the most recent fullest UK tour was 2003!  

But, really, the live music cancellations have helped remind me of all of the countries and locales that bands overall basically cannot work out the logistics to tour.  I am feeling positively that Nigel's interest in restarting From the Basement will be possible by mid 2021 (small groups of people could gather together by then?) and maybe they will do more of a gig format, playing multiple days, complete with Andi setting up shop with many different types of lights around the space!  even if it isn't next year, From the Basement with Andi is as much of a Radiohead future milestone as every release of key songs that had been in waiting!

They could record it and do post production, and have multiple takes of whichever parts they wish to do again, like normal, and then it would be released and available to as many people as possible, perhaps some or all with some fundraising involved!

Andi Watson was named a Knight of Illumination for the 2018 tour.  

From the Basement would be a tad more intimate for Andi.   The idea, though, of recording in a "gathering of less than 25 persons" space, is nearly ideal as a great way for the band to become active in the next 12 months, as shelter-in-place restrictions are gradually loosened.  Recording LP10 would also be a "fewer person" alternative to touring.  Needs more band interest than just Nigel though.

At least the one song he's doing on that pisshead knob-slobberer's TV show tonight.

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.

“For the foreseeable future, everyone is doing their own thing,” O’Brien adds "when it feels right to plug back into Radiohead, then we will."

There's a better chance for Thom's solo stuff, I could see him releasing another this or that out of restlessness.  Nigel is also a bit of an energizer bunny (dating myself).  But besides replanning tours and collabs, it's more likely that RH are learning to bake, and maybe make homemade ice cream, like everyone else in the pandemic.  The pandemic doesn't really affect the career of Stanley Donwood, who can paint, linocut, sketch and do book covers in in relative isolation.  He's not a "get-together" bloke anyway.  

If there's anything to be optimistic about, it might be the KID A 20th release, since it's existing material.  Very stoked for this, and hoping we hear news about it before too much longer.

Meanwhile, you can uplift with Colin who likes it when musicians "make something new."  (at round 16:50) 

Keep up the optimism though.  In short supply.

I'm thinking that the pandemic put the lid on an October physical release of a re-issue.  I could imagine two different scenarios happening. 

 

1. October is a digital release with a promise of a physical release at a later date

2. They wait until next June when a vaccine will most likely be in the process of distribution and near the anniversary of Amnesiac to release a physical copy

 

You really can't have a Kid A re-issue without including Amnesiac since they were all from the same sessions.  Hence Kid/Amnesiac.  I have trust in Colin that he's working on digging through the archives as we saw a picture of him doing so last year.

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.
