Colin Digging Through Bends Session Tapes?!

I wonder what he meant by "being careful" in regards to Kid A/Amnesiac?

I don't doubt that about The Bends, but I ESPECIALLY don't doubt that about In Rainbows, considering the notoriety of those sessions (Spike Stent failed attempts, etc.)
 

I want to hear all five versions of House of Cards!

I'd honestly be into a version of The Bends that was the best or most interesting alternate versions of every songs, as opposed to the standard tracklist being remastered and some demos on a flipside.

Honestly we all have access to the original record, especially since these things are available on spotify et al and it's only big fans who generally buy the redux editions. We don't need the album again. I won't even go into how dumb it is 'remastering' a 25 year old album... always rubs me the wrong way too: keep the songs as they were and always are. That's how they put out and how they should stay out.

If I had to guess, "be careful" means they don't want to release versions /songs / partial recordings that they view as terrible.  They did lots of experimenting back then as we know, and I'm sure that resulted in lots of odd bits that they wouldn't want released -- lest someone think it was ever seriously considered or even liked at the time.

Bends = tapes
OKC = minidiscs
Kid A = Muddy Mp3s
Amnesiac = Slightly higher bitrate MP3s
HTTT = CDs
In Rainbows = Vinyl
TKOL = Clear vinyl
AMSP = Spotify

Are you aware that CDs came before Mp3 or you're just 15 years old?

I'm referencing Thom sending the band CDs of HTTT material and having some fun with how I personally experienced each album in its greatest form but if you want to get nasty, PM me so we can meet up and sort it out properly

Just saw this pop up on Reddit:

6cvzu6jgjm421.jpg?width=960&crop=smart&a

 

Colin browsing master tapes for what looks like sessions for The Bends...

Juicy tidbits include a song called "Interstate 5" and the fact that there's an alternate outro for Lewis (Mistreated) !!!

But is this just Colin browsing around for fun, or do you think they're gearing up for a Bends 25th anniversary or something?

Quite nice 'Radiohead Vault' they got there, wonder if Assange/Snowden ever squated out in it inbetween embassy asylums....🤣🤣

It is such a good photo!!  : )   thank you again for bringing this here!  I do like the idea that the Bends release would be maybe the third in the series of archival projects; it will be better from their experience with the previous ones!

With all the Kid A 20th hype, kind of forgot it was the 25th anniv. of The Bends.  Several retrospectives out there right now, including this very odd ranking of songs from the album.

Yeah, a real odd ranking in my opinion, but music is subjective!
