Turns out the answer is yes. Here's the live debut (and rather good it is too): 

 

Too bad they didn't find that sooner and get it in the studio.  It adds so much more life to the song.  That said, I really wish they'd stop playing this one live so fucking much!

/Reddit is a pretty decent forum for Radiohead related fan topics. Love how the same questions are asked hourly Incase you missed the last 30 times it’s was asked in the last 15 mins. All the fan art

Here’s what’s cool about the Lotus Flower drums: it’s a one-bar loop, which is just cool unto itself it flips - it’s placed in different places in the bar at different parts of the song (

The mixing errors, or what seem like errors, could be entirely subjective. I feel like that little ditty at the beginning is an out-take of a song that spawned the idea for Lift, almost like a nod. It

It's a shame the early version of HTTT never surfaced in lossless quality. It had its charms.

The same mix of "I Will" from it was released officially though. I can't remember where, I think it was an Australia single/b-side thing. My memory is foggy (again).

it was released by mistake where the LA version was supposed to appear. I'm sure this happened on some CDs that were later recalled... I probably have one, haven't checked in ages. it also happened on a few digital releases still handled under EMI/parlophone before the switch to XL

I'm fairly certain I have a lossless version of it that I got on The Hub a few years ago. I'm not entirely sure if it's 100% lossless but it definitely isn't the usual 128kbps MP3 one that can be readily found.

Check and let us know! I have 192kbps FhG MP3 rips of it. You can find the lossless version of the extended I Will on "17 Demos and Alternate Versions" from a compilation called "Radiohead - Every Last Crumb". It was posted on mortigitempo. It has some real gems on it including an absolutely brilliant Thom & Jonny acoustic of My Iron Lung.

That HTTT-era loose white shirt really was Thom's best look

I always thought he looked the coolest on the Jools Holland 2001 performance, he's not really styled though. Tight fitting I guess? I'm kinda weird like that but I prefer it when artists are wearing something casual so it isn't taking away from their body language and energy.

A L I E N S  by Coldplay is better than at least half of the Radiohead discography.  You could convince me that Politik and Square One are as well.

I’m listening to it now because of this post and whilst it’s not a terrible piece of music this is a terrible opinion

I don't believe it's an opinion. But ALIENS is one of their best songs. It's too bad that Coldplay decided that they were fine, Maroon 5ing themselves...I do like Ghost Story. Magic is groovy. Midnight is moody. The rest is fine.
