  1. their setlists p unpredictable nowadays, they have such a great catalogue at this point. it's also interesting how they seem to really like playing in rainbows songs versus how little they seem to play tkol/httt/amnesiac

    I agree with you.  What's amazing to me is how much of their catalog goes together.


    I'd love a Radiohead evening (akin to 311 day), where the band played 4-5 hours to really explore that catalog of material.

  2. Despite the very obvious technical issues during the first ⅓ of the set, this turned out to be a pretty stellar show (i.e., Street Spirit is amazing!).  Here are some links to the screen recording of the live stream and the separated audio, including intermissions for technical issues, of the show.  Enjoy!

    With both of these, please mind your speakers/ears beginning with Ful Stop and ending shortly after Let Down!

  3. I think it's a musician thing, guys.  


    • Studio Recording = days, weeks, months, years, overdubs, multiple takes, polish (if the producer sucks), studio session guys (if the artist(s) sucks) ;
    • Live = real, in the moment, created in front of you, no overdubs, visceral, lighting, energy, energy, energy...if they suck or are 'going through the motions' you can tell.


    Your senses are the only filter when it's live.  With a studio album, it's a representation of a performance, filtered, stamped, processed and then it makes it to your ears.


    Yeah, I think it's a musician thing.  :icon_surp

  4. I was watching the live stream (Stream:https://www.pscp.tv/w/1rmGPnzDpqXxN ) and I did notice that they re-started 2+2=5 a few times and Thom saying something about being 'professionals'! ; )


    Kudos to Randy, the periscoper, that made that stream available.  It's the entire show and all three encores.  Dude never took a break!


    P.S. It also seemed like the audience started applauding before Paranoid Android was over...leading me to think that maybe a lot of folks there where unfamiliar with the older material?

  5. ...bringing a different energy and a different perspective on the original recordings.



    That's what I mean.  'Different' to me, equates to better.


    As a musician, a song that I recorded ten years ago is not anywhere near as appealing as playing it live now.  I've got a decade's more worth of experience and perspective and the kodak moment from back then has a lot less feeling in it than now.  I've grown and so has my representation of the material.


    Do you not suppose the members of Radiohead feel similarly when they are playing The Bends era or OKC era songs now?  If not, why does Fake Plastic Trees have an altogether different feel live in 2017 than the canned version from 1994/95?


    Maybe it's just from the perspective of being a musician, but I'm not sure.

  6. Sad?  That wasn't the intent.  I'm not sure that I worded it correctly.  From a musician's perspective, a studio album is a snapshot in time, frozen and unchanging; whereas live is 100% in the moment.  Not any different than a picture of the grand canyon vs. really being there, I suppose.


    So, when I was finally album to catch the band in 2003, some of the songs they played that had been recorded a decade earlier, had a much more visceral feel.  Creep completely blew me away live and, for example, Fake Plastic Trees rocked out much, much harder than the album cut.


    What I've noticed with RH, more so than any other band I've seen, is that while I was a fan off of the albums, the live experience just about redefined my perception of music.  'Influenced' isn't a strong enough word.


    If the post WWII generation had Radiohead back then, they wouldn't have needed LSD to expand the consciousness!

  7. thanks for the link!






    very exciting!




    if we get anything like this for coachella i will die.

    also, i am letting you all know, that the blanket shall cover my naked body. 

    That blanket (afghan, throw, rug, whatever it is) seems to be pretty popular and definitely designed to cover some naked bodies!  :)

  8. In no particular order:


    The Bends might not have existed without inspiration from Jeff Buckley


    Ed = atmosphere/ambience.  Ed has a hell of a lot to do with the RH 'sound' that Jonny usually gets the credit for (not that Jonny isn't a force to be reckoned with).


    Meeting People is Easy is a horrible film, much less a decent music documentary.

  9. Having been a pretty dedicated fan since 1994/1995, but not seeing them live until 2003, I had years to really absorb the released material and nothing to contrast it with.  That being said, once I saw them live, two things happened:


    A. They ruined me proverbially on any other band, live.


    B. The studio albums (up to that point, which was HTTT), just weren't the same anymore.


    I've always view bands in a certain context with quite a few of them sucking live; good ones being as decent as their studio recordings; the few stellar ones transcending the studio.  Radiohead clearly falls into the last category.  Something about the energy flow between band and audience, it just cannot be beat.


    I'm not saying that I don't like the albums, but the live experience is how I feel RH should be ingested, if you will.


    Does anyone else feel similarly?

  10. Amazing stream...

  11. They are at their prime, so there wouldn't have been a better time to see them than now! :)


    Don't feel bad, the first time I saw them was in 2003 with the HTTT tour.  I very much overpaid for a ticket and traveled halfway across the country to see them.  100% worth it on all accounts.  I didn't know how good they were live, back then, I just knew that I absolutely wanted to see them.  Well, I was completely blown away!  Even though I'd been a fan for a long time, seeing them live, ruined me on other bands.  They sounded phenomenal and the audience was completely different than any other concert I've been to...hard to describe, but everyone was just so stoked to be there.  Not a typical rock crowd, but not a typical hipster crowd either.  Unique! :)

  12. AMSP is an excellent album.  Radiohead appears to be one of the few bands ever that really does showcase their musical evolution on subsequent releases.  Giving birth to progress while shedding formulas, cannot be an easy feat.  Kudos to RH for raising the bar on just about everything else out there.


    They are musicians, musicians and I sincerely believe that folks will listen to their records for many decades, if not centuries, to come.

  13. Stellar idea!  Pablo Honey still stands on it's own, specifically Thom opening up the pipes on You and, based on the Live at the Astoria footage, Blow Out would be killer to see live.


    I honestly couldn't imagine a better way to spend a few weeks!

  14. Hi ladies & gentlemen,


    I've been a member of the forum since '08, but don't think I properly introduced myself back then and have been inactive for a very long time.


    Without further ado...


    When I was 13, Nirvana ruled their airwaves and I was going through a pretty big Led Zeppelin and AIC phase (Pink Floyd would come a few years later when I discovered Live at Pompeii, promptly sold my acoustic drums and picked up a polyphonic analogue synth, thank you Rick Wright...RIP) so most of my then taste in music was leaning a bit toward the hard rock variety, teenage angst and all.  At the time, I was a budding musician (well, a drummer anyway) and really enjoyed what Bonham had to offer, AIC's haunting vocal melodies and even a little bit of Pantera thrown in for some double-bass exercises.

    One evening, I was flipping through the tv channels and stopped on MTV, which was airing this grainy looking video from what appeared to be the British equivalent to Nirvana.  Yeah, I'm talking about seeing and hearing Creep for the first time.  The song itself, didn't particularly floor me.  However, one part stood out, which I later found out was Jonny Greenwood's kill-switch enabled telecaster blaring through a Proco RAT pedal....*chunk chunk* *chunk chunk*...holy hell!!! What on earth was this magnificent sound?  Did the rest of the band realize that it was in there?  How is this the segue to the chorus of a pop-rock song?


    That is what got my adolescent mind initially hooked on what would later become my favorite band of all time.  I've been a fan ever since and have appreciated the Punk Floyd of this generation immensely.  I still play music, time-permitting, and Radiohead is most definitely a musician's band.  Each album, ever so slightly evolving, never repeating, never trite and never tired.

    I couldn't imagine a musical world without Radiohead in it!
