  1. Actually Radiohead are only playing small shows now, they hate big shows.

     

    I would like them to play olympic stadium (80,000 capacity), or even Acer Arena (21,000) but in Sydney they are only playing Sydney Entertainment centre (12,000) after not touring here in Australia for 8 years.

     

    I would love it if they played huge shows so I would have a chance to get tickets

  2. I noticed that Radiohead seem to use this trick a lot where they use a parallel major and minor chord in the verse and chorus. For example Lucky, The tourist, Exit music, Paranoid android. Or when the same chord changes from major to minor during a verse e.g planet telex or nude. I know it isn't unique to them and plenty of bands probably use it.

     

    I'm pretty sure, like people have said, Thom probably just does what sounds cool to him but I'm wandering what is happening music theory wise; is the chorus of lucky in a different key to the verse?

     

    I loved reading threads like "what Radiohead songs are in A" or hearing Warren analyse paranoid android. I wish there was a website which went through Radiohead songs (or at least the most interesting ones in terms of chords) and analysed them in depth, looked at all the cool music theory stuff going on.

  3. Yeah obviously all rock comes from blues but Radiohead don't seem to wear it on their sleeves as much as some bands. The most bluesy thing I can think of is the acoustic riff in paranoid android when it goes 'kicking and screaming gucci little piggy'.

     

    Also as far as I can tell most of Jonny's lead guitar doesn't rely heavily on the minor pentatonic or other bluesy scales, I might be wrong.

  4. Wow I am quite shocked, and a little bit happy. I thought Rolling stone always saw radiohead as over rated. I mean number 1! a bit of contrast with the top 500 albums of all time where it was number 428, although they had only the writers voting yet.

     

    I like most of the list, wouldn't be rolling stone without a good helping of kings of leon and norah jones but why is interpol so far down?

  5. I don't think nigel gives them their sound, they decide how they want it to sound. They tell him what they want and he sorts the good ideas from the bad.

     

    He certainly influences the style of an album but I think if anyone is going to help radiohead evolve and change, do something different, it will be him because of the way he works.

    I think you could enjoy these songs if you hadn't heard radiohead live, but if you then go and watch say, exit music at belfort and creep live at the mtv beach house, these covers are pretty weak sauce. Still, I think exit music is a good choice for karaoke.

  8. I like it overall just wish they would release a printable list, i.e a text only list so I can really have a good look at the whole thing.

     

    Radiohead actually performed identical to the 2000-2004 list, except now In rainbows replaces amnesiac at 21 and amnesiac slips to 34 compared to where hail to the thief landed at 39. This time hail to the thief was a victim of the 3 album per band cap.

     

    Yeah kind of surprised turn on the bright lights was so low, I thought that album really held up over the years, and they put the national's aligator higher than boxer, really? Plus chutes too narrow is really low.

  9. yea but have you ever heard them any other way?

     

    Atoms for Peace is basically a piano piece, a great one at that. I saw him do it live with just the piano and it was gorgeous.

     

    Analyse was the same way, the live one he did at the mercury prize thing was soooo much better than the album version.

     

    I dont know, i think thom over does things sometimes.

     

     

    I don't think electronic because he's been in a band for so long he's just sick of traditional instruments, he wants to get away from it when he can. I remember he said around the kid a time, he just couldn't pick up a guitar.
