Not sure why I didn't get it as have bought through WASTE before and was on the list at one point? Shame as I would've liked the pre-sale opportunity.

Interested to see where they go after that last album, which I hated.

I'm on their mailing list but it went straight to my spam folder for some reason. I no longer care a great deal about Radiohead - as a callow youth they came behind only Spz and R.E.M. in my holy trinity of obsessions - but I always look forward to new material. Agree that the last album wasn't much cop; a good E.P's worth of tracks there, perhaps...

£65 a ticket at the Roundhouse kind of prices me out of seeing them live, yet again. Not sure how that price can be justified.

I really liked the last album.

The last album worked fantastically live, especially with the two drummers.

Failed in the pre-sale this morning, we go again for the general sale...

that's crazy- that's basically arena show prices for a Roundhouse show.

I'm not a massive acolyte of theirs, but I am a fan (great live act too in my opinion). then again I realised last night that I've not properly enjoyed anything they've done since Kid A. that's a long time.

Well, their last arena tour was like £85, and at the same time less people makes it harder to generate the costs of production (I'm sure the production won't be smaller than the arena shows, just he venue fee will be less and that is probably it).

I think it is expensive, but I can see why it is.

The two times i've seen them have been so boring. Once with Spiritualized opening, I left after 4 songs.

Wife will go most likely.

Radiohead Tour

Postby BzaInSpace » Sat Mar 19, 2016 12:19 am

In Rainbows was an incredible album. The rest of it though...

On a whim I recently bought 'The Best Of Radiohead' for £3 from a local supermarket.

For the car.

EMI release so misses out anything after 2005 or so.

Unlike fine wine, none of this stuff has aged well IMO: and beyond 'Pyramid Song' the whole collection bored the daylights outta me.

To paraphrase Dylan: "do people really enjoy this kind of pain?"

Their clumsy "Warp records" influenced music is laughable really. No wonder AFX was pretty cutting at their ham-fisted attempts at apeing his kind of weird science musik magic.

Seen them twice live. Unremarkable.

Each to their own.

Still better than all the terrible bands formed in their absences though.

Saw them play a late afternoon slot at Tourhout 1996 followed by Massive Attack, also in broad daylight :shock:

They weren't really my cup of tea and i've not seen them since.

Rather pointless post. Carry on.... :arrow:

Have never seen Radiohead live, would quite like to under the right circumstances, enjoy a fair amount of their music. £65 is a bit much for me so I probably will never see them, no great loss,

Is it too much? To see them in a small -ish venue like the Roundhouse? London prices? Don`t think its too bad, wouldn`t pay it myself mind,it`s all bloody relative though, cost you that to see Arsenal and I know which one I would rather go to.

Both are about two hours long : an Arsenal match and a Radiohead gig, however, Arsenal will always disappoint you. :cry:

Only time I saw them live was a couple summers ago. Lawn seats in New Jersey, nice weather, some drink & smoke. I think tickets were closer to $30 US each, which was affordable. I loved the show but I wouldn't / couldn't pay $60+

Radiohead are rumored to be headlining one of the days at Lollapalooza Chicago 2016. Four day passes sold out today. The lineup is announced tomorrow and at that point, single day tickets will be available.

I must try In Rainbows again. I borrowed it ages ago but never actually gave it a fair whack.

Amnesiac sounds like Kid A offcuts
Hail To The Thief is bloated, with all its type of songs done better elsewhere.
King of Limbs is just pants. so insubstantial.

He can't hate radiohead that much, he went on to collaborate with Jonny Greenwood.

Radiohead Tour

Postby BzaInSpace » Fri Mar 25, 2016 5:39 pm

Some harsh words (shocking I know) from me about Radiohead earlier but I implore anyone not familiar with it to give In Rainbows another listen.

It's really something else and the only time I feel they've really hit something bigger than all the hype and stuff would suggest.

A lot of it comes down to when and where I heard it - weird and ephemeral nostalgic stuff shouldn't be written out of the equation either....


(see my love for Riot City Blues and Beautiful Future by the Scream:

"How I Wish I Could Feel Those Summers In My Heart Once Again...")

Anyway it's a great, great soulful album.

Nothing since has hit the mark like that for me. I also would have liked to have seen them live around this album when they did 3 hour shows etc.

Try this:
http://puddlegum.net/radiohead-01-and-10/

Ten years after OK Computer shocked the world, Radiohead released In Rainbows on October 10 (10/10). Though no one was expecting the album to be released until 2008, Radiohead announced In Rainbows just ten days in advance. In Rainbows, which consists of ten letters, has ten tracks, and would be downloadable from a rumored ten servers.

Radiohead preceded the release of In Rainbows with nine cryptic messages. They repeatedly emphasized X, the Roman Numeral for ten, in phrases such as “March Wa X”, and “Xendless Xurbia”. The tenth message was posted on October 10 with a photo of the band drinking tea.

There has been a lot of speculation over Radiohead’s emphasis of ten surrounding the release of In Rainbows. One theory suggests that Radiohead was typifying a binary code of ones and zeros, 1010101010. This has come to be known as the Binary Theory, also called the TENspiracy by some.

Puddlegum first addressed the Binary Theory in Radiohead: 1010101010. Someone associated with Thom Yorke contacted Puddlegum, sharing Thom’s reaction to Puddlegum’s article:

“The meaning behind all of this is right in front of our faces, we’re just overlooking it. [Thom] has been expecting an article much like this one for a couple of years, as have I. But I’m willing to wager he’ll have fun waiting a few more. On the other hand, it seems to annoy him that no one ‘gets it’ yet, given the mountain of clues.”


Ten days after our original article, we have come to believe that OK Computer and In Rainbows were meant to complement each other. During the writing and recording process of OK Computer, Radiohead used the working title of Zeros and Ones. If OK Computer is represented by 01, and In Rainbows is represented by 10, then we have 01 and 10. In binary code 01 and 10 complement each other.

Consider that In Rainbows was meant to complement OK Computer, musically, lyrically, and in structure. We found that the two albums can be knit together beautifully. By combining the tracks to form one playlist, 01 and 10, we have a remarkable listening experience. The transitions between the songs are astounding, and it appears that this was done purposefully.

The lyrics also seem to complement each other. There appears to be a concept flowing through the 01 and 10 playlist. Ideas in one song is picked up by the next, such as “Pull me out of the aircrash,” and “When I’m at the pearly gates, this will be my videotape.”

To create the 01 and 10 playlist, begin with OK Computer’s track one, Airbag, and follow this with In Rainbow’s track one, 15 Step. Alternate the albums, track by track, until you reach Karma Police on OK Computer, making All I Need the tenth track on the 01 and 10 playlist. Follow Karma Police with Fitter Happier from OK Computer, for tracks eleven and twelve. These two tracks act as a bridge between the first ten and the following ten tracks on the 01 and 10 playlist. Then continue to alternate the albums again, picking up with Faust Arp on In Rainbows, with Electioneering on OK Computer as the following track.

Radiohead – 01 and 10 playlist:
1. Airbag (OK Computer)
2. 15 Step (In Rainbows)
3. Paranoid Android (OK Computer)
4. Bodysnatchers (In Rainbows)
5. Subterranean Homesick Alien (OK Computer)
6. Nude (In Rainbows)
7. Exit Music (For A Film) (OK Computer)
8. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi (In Rainbows)
9. Let Down (OK Computer)
10. All I Need (In Rainbows)
11. Karma Police (OK Computer)
12. Fitter Happier (OK Computer)
13. Faust Arp (In Rainbows)
14. Electioneering (OK Computer)
15. Reckoner (In Rainbows)
16. Climbing Up The Walls (OK Computer)
17. House Of Cards (In Rainbows)
18. No Surprises (OK Computer)
19. Jigsaw Falling Into Place (In Rainbows)
20. Lucky (OK Computer)
21. Videotape (In Rainbows)
22. The Tourist (OK Computer)
