  1. Over my dead body We don't want the loonies taking over Go to sleep and let this wash all over me walking out in a force ten gale...Blown by the wind....Power cut Disagree. Not every word of the each of these lyrics is cliched, and Scatterbrains are actually a little better than I remembered, but for the guys that gave us the dystopian nightmares and anxiety on stilts on OK Computer this is pretty uninspiring takes on the same thing. Also - you try too hard. One reply is enough.
  2. Bad lyrics are the elephant in the room of latter era Radiohead. Something people would rather not criticise? I remember someone on here slating Phil for having boring cliches in his lyrics and song titles (Don't look down, It will end in tears, Waiting for a sign) as though Radiohead haven't spewed out whole songs with cliched lyrics like Go to sleep and Scatterbrain.
  3. Yes indeed. On one of the 2006 blackboards "Bombers / Neil Young *9" had become "Bombers / 4 minute warning" https://citizeninsane.eu/music/inrainbows/4minutewarning.html
  4. The album was announced on 24th march 2003 https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/71855/radiohead-says-hail-to-the-thief The tour was announced before that, maybe 7-10 days before? So comparable with the first shows of 2016 in that we had a tour announcement, then an album announcement. Different because the album itself was not released for a few weeks though we had the rough mix and final mix leaks by the week of the May tour. I moved home from university for Easter the weekend that the tour was announced and missed it. They were playing Shepherd's Bush Empire and I missed it
  5. I only recently starting reading through this thread but somebody said 6 weeks. From looking at my emails 2nd May 2017 was the date several shops announced it and it was also the date I created my accountat the OKNOTOK store. The release date of the 3 x vinyl and 2 CD was 23rd June, not sure if the big boxed set was the same date. So an early-mid August announcement would be consistent with an early October release if they were going for the actual 20th anniversary. Seemed to be some very strong interest in earlier interviews - why wouldn't it happen? Ed's attention is ob
  6. I know nothing about this Toronto incident beyond maybe seeing the thread when the OKC minidiscs stuff was leaking and sorry for the late response. But anyway I feel like a post in defence of COR might be due. He visited the board a lot around the time of HTTT (his username was "blackstar"). I had no doubt he was a keen Radiohead fan, I met him with a few boarders after a show in London in 2003 and his affection for the music was clear...he was enjoying playing songs that Radiohead had only recently webcasted for example, it was far from knocking out the hits for a few dollars. Anyway on
  7. Best incarnation & rank in order?
  8. I thought it was funny. I gave it a haha reaction too because I haven't I haven't used my allocated number of reactions yet today. Accidentally liked your post at first too. Sorry about that. I'm all over the place.
  9. Yay I haven't double posted in years. I love you all and missed you all
  10. To be fair, they've never even seen a shooting star before. NEVER FORGET
  11. This is a great summary. Save yourself most of what you'd find out by reading pages 1 to 30 (the bit before all the Weezer nonsense) by reading this.
  12. An affectionate summary though I doubt many even here would agree that it's "endlessly interesting". How refreshing that most of the "below the line" comments ignore the content of the article and leak, and instead angrily inform me what is the *real* album of the 90s. Really interesting stuff. and people said this place was full of insufferable trolls.
  13. So much wrong with that claim. If anyone wasn't it the super keen fans / hoarders that were asked to pay this so-called ransom? Or have I totally got the wrong end of the stick. If you wanted to hold the band to random better to steal their 2019 demos and threaten to press delete. As if there's only one copy of anything these days.
