  1. Yeah, I just tried searching through the "archived" stuff, still nothing. God, the search function does my head in. I searched for the phrase "Kid A" in my own posts. Nothing came up. How likely is it that I have never mentioned "Kid A" in one of my posts? No, that's not the one I meant. EDIT: Found it, it's this one. The dumb thing is that I'm not even sure that the posts I am looking ARE in that thread. This is really frustrating, the posts were damn well-written and insightful, too. I would manually go through my 500 posts if I had to. But I can't. Can I?
  2. Someone, around the time TKOL was released, made a number of insightful posts about what the fan reaction/anticipation to Kid A was like. I myself gathered them into one big post and pasted them into, I think, the 1000-page speculation thread. I can't, for the life of me, find said posts now. Can anyone help? For some reason, I can't view my own posts if they are older than 1 year (at least not via the "Find my content" function)
  3. While I do agree with the rest of your post, it's a bit unfair to say they "hushed up" about The Hollies thing. They honestly admitted that they intentionally lifted from The Hollies already way back in 1993. "What happened was, we wrote 'Creep', and the middle eighth just had...my guitar playing a tune," says Greenwood. "And Ed stopped [us] and said, 'This is the same chord sequence as that Hollies song,' and then sang it. So Thom copied it. It was funny to us in a way, sort of feeding something like that into [it]. It's a bit of change." They could've said that it was an accident or that they didn't realise until later, but they were honest about it from day 1. I doubt that it has come up too often after that, that's why they haven't talked about it since.
  4. Why would Jonny using the "The Present Tense" in an orchestral score mean that they'll never release a Radiohead version of it?
  5. I'm gonna have to chime in here. Look at the list of locations where The Universal Sigh was available. How exactly is being available in over 35 countries all over the world "extremely limited availability"? Not only were the papers available all over the usual European countries, the team also went the extra mile and shipped papers to countries the band has never played before (The Baltic states, Iceland, Russia) or where they rarely play (Scandinavia, South America, Down Under). Considering that the papers were completely free of charge, they had to be shipped worldwide and the band doesn't have a huge record label behind them to fund such endeavor, I think it's quite unfair to accuse them of half-arsing the release of TUS.
  6. That doesn't make much sense if you consider the whole package. It's obvious that the other items, the crew shirt, setlist, backstage passes, drumsticks and plectrums are all legit. So why would he fake one single item? And if he did fake the song sheet in order to get people's attention, why didn't he mention that item in the auction's title?
  7. I'm not sure why you don't want that photo, it's exactly what you were looking for? "Any pics of Jonny with a string quartet"?
  8. If you're going to try to sound all erudite and pull some Latin, at least spell the word "magnum" correctly.
  9. As much as I agree with your hesitancy, hoping to hear some new material this tour isn't entirely baseless. Source
  10. Well, I'm not saying that every gig in 2012 is going to be recorded fully, but I'm fairly sure most of the TKOL tour gigs will. And, as is often the case, there'll be great recordings that'll never be circulated publicly. Edgar still has two Atoms for Peace recordings that he hasn't shared yet...
  11. It's 2012, mate, of course there'll be decent clips. There'll be video clips in HD and an audio recording of the full gig.
