Certainly the best concert I have attended this year
the most Thom-dancing-inside-the-matrix show I have ever seen
including a rare solo performance by the Radiohead frontman himself.
it’s gonna be a riot
Thom will also play at the Fonda Theater in LA on December 12th
‘a personal song about loss, hopelessness and chaos’
If this sounds like a cult, it is probably a cult
‘old UK turkeys vote for Christmas and then get very confused’
Shouldn’t we be in shock regarding Radiohead?
although the adrenaline level was high, most of the people were quietly waiting
‘They’ve seized control of it – it’s like what the Nazis did during the Second World War. “
The last couple of times I’ve seen Thom, I’ve found him a little off his feed, so this would be worth adding more money to Conde Nast’s new nastiness
‘I’d say something like, ‘It describes a ribbon of light on the horizon. Can you do that?’ He’d say, ‘Got it’. He’d send me an e-mail of some music he’d written, and it would be some primeval, unusual thing. The sort of neurosis within his music certainly has elucidated elements of the compulsive repetition of the play,’

If the dark ages were over so long ago, why dos it feel like they are back and why does it feel like this is the music England was listening to in 1066. “Pink Section” sounds like the wind that blew from Agincort to Flanders Field to Kirkuk and Al Quaim. It sounds like a horror moving through history
‘The treatment, which Dr. Mason perfected by slicing a small section of the eyelid, has been dubbed by local fanatics as the “Yorke cut.” In the simplest terms, the $600 surgery gives fans a chance to re-create on their own person the trademark Thom Yorke amblyopic left eye.’
people have noticed that many musicians have a long ring finger, and hand casts of Anton Rubinstein, Beethoven and Franz Listz have effectively revealed a long ring finger in both hands. This has been studied by professor John Manning of the Liverpool University, who compared the index finger (second one) to the ring finge
They probably have about the same size and weight so it could go on forever! But it’s ridiculous, none of them is the fighting type, they re both civil and courteous guys and so this is a waste of time on a slow-news day.
If Byrne wants more money off Spotify than Byrne should renegotiate his deal with major record labels who are part owners of Spotify. If the major indie labels (all distributed by the big three by the way) want more money off Spotify, they should pull their clients and re-negotiate the terms of their contracts
