  1. amazing setlist last night Daydreaming Ful Stop 15 Step Lucky Kid A Burn the Witch The Gloaming Pyramid Song Climbing Up the Walls Idioteque Bloom Reckoner The National Anthem How to Disappear Completely You and Whose Army? There There Street Spirit (Fade Out) Optimistic Nude Identikit Lotus Flower The Bends Spectre Paranoid Android Fake Plastic Trees
  2. 42 songs across two nights in chicago phwoar blow out & spectre the big rare ones but some belters in both sets
  3. hopefully they mix it up for US but still a decent setlist
  4. fine, if you've never picked up a guitar before you just hold it how you're told i was only about 8 at the time or summat
  5. yeah that was my guitar teacher's angle i'm left handed but she said don't learn a left handed guitar, you'll be worse off later on because so few of the top line stuff is made left handed; and you'll find it easier because your strong hand is doing the bit that's hardest at the start so you'll learn quicker and more likely to keep going
  6. i played it for half an hour or so in a guitar store it's pretty great tbf i just couldn't justify buying it - i decided i want to keep my "normal" white strat, and having two white strats feels like overkill so i'm hanging on for now
  7. hate this thread almost as much as i hate lana del terrible awful stuff
  8. A: 100% please B: 40% A: no, 80% B: 45% A: no, 60% B: 50% A: done
  9. just a negotiation though isn't it start at 100% and accept 30% or whatever lots of grandstanding involved with these sort of legal claims
  10. is it possible that the Hollies legal guys have started this and Radiohead are part of it as co-writers
  11. we still have 4 years to see in any case!
  12. i never really liked CUTW that much but the notes and various demos on the tape made me appreciate it a bit more, the amount of effort they put into that one song i'm sure there was similar stuff for all of them but i guess CUTW was recorded last and they taped over all the other stuff?
  13. my girlfriend asked me what my favourite radiohead song was a while ago and usually i kind of dither and go well it depends but i just answered Let Down straight away and yeah i think i agree
  14. so TLW samples on Amnesiac, could it be that the untitled noise after MPS on Kid A is a version of that sample?
  15. just mental to think he was 28/29 and had this singular creative vision for what would become OK Computer and pulled it off pretty much exactly as intended the progression from the acoustic versions of Let Down and Airbag to what's on the album just blows me away its a fascinating insight into the processes of a band at the peak of its powers can't wait for the Kid A/Amnesiac version, if Nigel's right then we're going to get hours and hours of extra stuff
  16. its a post from atease but it sums up my thoughts on the tape and the notebooks
  17. he's probably pissed that people have paid X money to go and see radiohead just to wave a palestinian flag he probably recognises that cultural boycotts are pointless, they're not condoning owt, like he says they still play US despite trump and still play Australia despite probably not agreeing with their politics a lot, they still play UK despite May etc etc
  18. what format do you need it in buddy?
  19. i don't think it's an exaggeration to say it's top 5 thom vocal performances on tape
  20. best £100 i ever spent the notebook is just fascinating and amazing - basically shows how Thom was the driving force behind OK Computer, both the album's politics and the sound. he's a genius. an absolute genius. would pay £100 to own the solo Motion Picture Soundtrack alone. stunning. just stunning.
  21. im not sure people noticed apartheid because of some artists also i think the world is very much aware of the israel / palestine situation without needing radiohead to not play a gig in Israel
  22. are people implying that an artist boycott of apartheid south africa was part or all of the reason for the regime's collapse?
  23. the tape is wonderful, the obvious highlight is the motion picture soundtrack which is a perfect vocal take and just glorious. let down and CUTW 4tracks are fun. the two 'new' songs are good though obviously not album quality. yeah, really good.
