  1. Oh man that jacket is just straight atrocious. Too much money squire.
  2. is there a link to the proper original OG leak still? it's as pure as snow it is.
  3. Aren't they walking through a back alley sort of thing in some American town or city? And someone recognises them?
  4. You don't grieve then suddenly start publicly rocking up to flash-in-the-pan label fashion shows with a new piece a few months later. For a bloke who's made his art and millions from being an overtly sensitive soul, that's not a very sensitive thing to do.
  5. For that big upcoming comprehensive world tour they're about to go on tomorrow? All that equipment for outdoor racetrack shows and stadiums Radiohead used to play, but tomorrow, Slowdive will? It's pretty interesting but the idea of them collaborating seems one of those moments where... their mysticism and arrogance and streamlined vibe has gone. Bit like the idea of them doing anniversary reissues. The fact it's another 90s band is all a bit corny.
  6. Funny how a bloke also got pantsed on here for promoting his music. Empire Machines aren't much worse.
  7. Ed has become really unlikeable a huge cliche this press cycle. His kids can afford to pants their education for their dad's self-indulgent Brazil trip because their dad's in Radiohead. They don't need to go to uni and they don't need a trade. Their old man will give them money to 'have the invaluable experience of global travel' from ages 18 to 25 and then when they feel like it, they'll get a cushy arse PR job at XL designing splash pages and deciding between fonts. One rich English fellas view on Brazil is probably completely different to the average Brazilians. That country is fu
  8. Also, apparently Spotify gave em a new photo, it's one of the Kid A press shots.
  9. The fact that book is just about every second post on reddit says enough; who honestly cares what some nerd thinks of an album that's been discussed to death for years?
  10. Also, what's the full story on the bomb thread?
  11. Damn really? Where'd they mention unreleased stuff?
  12. He was a bit of a daft wee bugger but does he need anymore doxing?
  13. Looks like he was more an engineer? One of Nigel's little proteges he rooted and booted... seemed to do it for Kid A and Amnesiac, the COM LAG little EP, The Eraser and its related stuff, and then he produced Bodysong and the absolutely stellar amazing yearned-for Weatherhouse by Phillip Selway.
  14. Think this is mostly run by Stanley and a lot of recent posts have just been a way for ol Stan to flog his second-rate art.
  15. More nice stories about going to peak-era Radiohead gigs, cheers boyos
  16. This thing has some really nice b-sides though and maybe their most experimental? I think it's pretty naff and the steely guitar or whatever the fuck on it is fucking shocking, but at least they tried I Am A Wicked Child. Paperbag Writer is interesting. I Am Citizen Insane is just really lovely. Does Fog (Again) count?
  17. Yeah the mixing and mastering on this is pretty flat and there are indeed parts where it clips (ie distorts at loud parts). But the older I get the more critical I am of Nigel and his cronies – Amnesiac can sound pretty shit compared to the how choral and sound-specific Kid A, A Moon Shaped Pool was neutered and overblown at the same time and has some lifeless mixing...
  18. ...is 17. I like this album because it's one of those records every really good band needs – everyone knows it isn't their best, but it has both their absolute worst and finest material on it. And more interestingly, it has plenty of those middle songs. Plenty on tracks on this thing that some hate and some really like. It reminds me a little bit of Blur's Think Tank or Terror Twilight by Pavement. They're not essential albums, but there's a real unique character to them. Anyway, probably the best thing about this whole time was the live shows. Glastonbury 2003 is pretty well re
  19. Isn't this actually the case? From an interview back when they were actually piss takers?
  20. I honestly seem to recall it being about three month. I remember just thinking it must've been some 90s throwback, true to the style, because the wait and whole promotional push was very 'traditional.' Before that, we'd had three Radiohead albums and a Thom Yorke one all with pretty similar 10ish day announcement-to-release cycles. I remember seeing the posters pop up and thinking they were fake. Then again I thought that about the Burn The Witch pamphlets being sent out as well. I guess reddit and their 'I won't listen to the minidisc leaks because it'll make me cry because it'll make Th
  21. I actually think the metaphor and the lyrics are actually really good, some of the freshest in the whole Radiohead catalogue. Thom gets more and more into the 'line of vague poetry, next line of cliche-reappropriating poetry' field as time goes on. But this actually really told a story and it's one of the rare times I can sort of see a picture and a story from his/their music.
  22. what's with all these cunts getting into The Sopranos in the last year or so, yet also being the biggest know-it-alls about it?
  23. His 'forgotten nice guy who'd chat to you down the pub while you waited for a pint then say bye before he left' schtick has gone. He's a boring, cliché white fucker. The Brazil thing is just classic cultural tourism and talking about 'energising colour and atmosphere' just isn't that much to learn overseas. Maybe Ed's a posh cunt.
