    Jonathan are you there?

    Totally fair to ask these questions. There's no real reason as to why I brought MT back. I guess it's because it's been a part of my life for the past 20 years. It felt weird not having it around. I have no expectation that people will visit or stick around. I realize there's plenty of other places you can spend your time (reddit, discord, slack groups, etc...). There's a lot of history within the topics here and for some reason, I didn't like that I just erased it. So, at the very least, I wanted to bring MT back purely for the historical snapshot of what useless things people were talking about from 2004 on. The only things that have changed are the server and software. Both were ancient and prone to spamming and attacks. The whole server was taken over by hackers in January which is why I shut it down. After moving to a new server and updating the forum software to be from this decade, I'm optimistic that the spam problems won't be as bad. I'm "present" in the sense that i check the site daily. I don't post much, never have. And I realize that things got really bad here the last few years. Life is crazy with 2 children under 4 years old so I do have bigger priorities. Hope this makes sense...

  2. would really have liked remastered versions of those b-sides in an official collection, with some extra tracks... not even because it would've been any better, just it would've had symmetry with oknotok and that sort of thing pleases me. i'm actually really interested to hear what ELSE they did with morning bell.

  3. Hello. 1. I started this thread. But now I seem to be "banned". Hence this new handle. 2. I confess to not having read all posts, so I may be missing some important details. 3. Am I the only one who is extremely pissed off that all of the original b-sides are not included in this set? (Or maybe I am missing something as per para 2?)

  4. Obviously this place is largely dead now anyway but man I'm glad that guy is banned. The idea of coming in here to say 'This reissue looks cool' only to be met with paragraphs and paragraphs of pointless negativity was kind of a drag. Anyway The reissue looks cool!!

  6. nowhere has been banned for a history of killing any and all innocent conversation regarding Radiohead with extreme toxic negativity and off-topic posts. the final straw was basically libel against a band member. this board has never tolerated prying into the personal lives of the band beyond that they've spoken on themselves, especially if users repeat unsourced rumours as fact. issues such as Radiohead playing a gig in Israel against the wishes of the BDS movement are theoretically fine to discuss, and I'm sure many fans have mixed feelings about the matter, but posters will agree to disagree in a thread about that discussion and keep it there. you can also post about it in the current events board or, most productively, discuss it somewhere other than a mostly dead Radiohead forum. users who have nothing positive or constructive to say about Radiohead's current projects are generally encouraged to discuss it elsewhere.

  7. smug dismissal of The Smile yields no space for insight or conversation and your extreme and false portrayal of the bands politics is obviously terminally influenced by one disagreement (they played a gig in Israel). i find your leaps of logic hard to follow and references to 'Thom/fan sexual relationships' are unsubstantiated forum gossip. your essays are better posted on your blog. let this board rest in peace.

  12. Oi, a few years ago I downloaded the .mp3 and cleaned it up to remove Thom / Nigel chatter. It's a part of my collection of Thom's unreleased / early versions set, link here: https://mega.nz/folder/PxADwI7Z#65tJcjKqdB-7Bv34hK9u5Q

  13. I was a bit underwhelmed by the re-issue, though the “new album” was pretty good. The exhibition, on the other hand, was pretty incredible, a true interactive work of art that I found myself surprised and moved by on several occasions

  17. it's also pretty tight that the vinyl reissues have got kid a and amnesiac on single LP. Kid A in particular DOESN'T WORK on the currently existing 2 x lp formats, having to flip it over between title track and national anthem and in limbo and idioteque kills the flow. somewhat disappointing there isn't an everything package for the completist i'll probably get the cream triple big book though. much love to all drawn back here by radiohead news. forever in our thoughts xx.

  20. Yeah, I love that recording. It was on my iPod playlist during my backcountry hike in Yellowstone last Saturday. In fact, my entire playlist included Radiohead, Thom Yorke solo and Atoms For Peace. I'm finally getting to enjoy all the recordings I acquired during the past year . . . . . listening to them while on adventurous hikes. I'm very grateful for these incredible songs.

  21. Yes, of course. Be aware . . . . . I added three spaces to the Internet address because I don’t like it when forums (and email websites) take an Internet address (that I have typed) and make it an active link. I just want the Internet address to be plainly typed letters. I think adding spaces does that. I placed the spaces after https and google. Here’s the Internet address: https ://docs.google . com/document/d/1kA8u6UhjbutZ-b7TXzmX4qkOTg6nGC1vPg50WwCcZyo/preview

  24. So I realize it’s been 15 years, but did you ever find out who that was? Because I’ve had that song stuck in my head for a good 20 now. Or whenever Napster was in its heyday. I downloaded it because someone named it as Radiohead’s “I Might Be Wrong” which it definitely wasn’t. But dammit, that song was great and I just want to hear it again.

  26. I'm not sure which is worse, the fact Radiohead ripped one of their most critically acclaimed songs (Daydreaming) off a lesser known song from an unjustly hated Blonde Redhead era (Defeatist Anthem) or the fact that several of Coldplay's best songs in their early career (High Speed, Brothers and Sisters) were stolen from Gustavo Cerati (Puente) and Soda Stereo (Millon Años Luz). At least Coldplay admitted their theft by doing Soda Stereo covers in Buenos Aires. Radiohead owes it to Kazu, Amadeo, Simone to do Blonde Redhead covers next time they're in New York. The funny thing is Kazu's Salty lives up to its title just a bit, by being even more like Daydreaming than Daydreamimg was like Defeatist Anthem, as if she's just daring their hypocritical asses to try to pull a Lana Del Rey on her. It's also a lot better than Daydreaming tho,

  27. OK . . . so the above video appears to have the 2 tracks on the B side of the 12-Inch vinyl Record titled Anima (Preview Limited Edition). According to the Notes section of the discogs.com page for Anima (Preview Limited Edition): Given to attendees at the Los Angeles IMAX premiere of the ANIMA short film by Thom Yorke and Paul Thomas Anderson on June 21, 2019. Also given on select European and North American IMAX screenings on June 26, 2019. The Alternate Mix of Dawn Chorus is the synth only mix from the movie That last sentence does not make sense to me. It says "the synth only mix from the movie". I just watched the Anima short film that's posted in this thread. To me, the version of Dawn Chorus in the Anima short film sounds like the version from the Anima album. Thom has vocals during Dawn Chorus in both the short film and the album. Neither is "synth only". If the Alternate Mix of Dawn Chorus is synth only . . . . then maybe it's only on the A side of the 12-Inch Vinyl Record titled Anima (Preview Limited Edition). Does anyone else have a different interpretation?

  31. Also, this isn't the first time people assumed Radiohead were nearing the end. There were so many posts in 2008 talking about how Videotape was their goodbye to their fans and they were going to hang it up after the In Rainbows tour. Didn't happen. During the long wait between TKOL and AMSP, lots of people assumed the band would go their separate ways. Again, it didn't happen. Five plus years seems to be their standard interval between albums now - so LP10 in 2021, LP11 in 2026, LP12 in 2031 is perfectly plausible. I won't believe that Radiohead are going to end until I hear it from the band themselves. If you think this is over, then you're (probably) wrong
