So, that Thom Yorke, eh?

This is a lovely little thread designed for Lovers and Haters of Radiohead to discuss why they love and/or hate the biggest band in the world.
Of course, the haters are wrong, and their opinions are factually incorrect, but don't let that stop a frank and honest discussion from developing.

What I found so delightful about Radiohead's peak was the fact that Street Spirit (Fade Out), the last track on The Bends, talks about how "this machine cannot communicate" and shows a general distrust for the inhumanity and fallibility of machinery. This sentiment is echoed throughout pretty much the entirety of OK Computer. But what is so delightful is that, despite all the musings on disequilibrium/dystopian visions/everything falling apart, Kid A begins with the unifying song Everything in its Right Place, so Kid A acts as the denouement to the Orwellian nightmare that was OK Computer, foreshadowed by the Bends. It offers me a sort of catharsis.

I don't consider Radiohead to have a "peak" really - they have just constantly evolved over the last fifteen years, changing their sound in a way that I don't think is matched by any other band.

They are also part of the greatest night of my life ever, which was Saturday night at Glastonbury 2003. I saw Jimmy Cliff, Jools Holland, the Polyphonic Spree, Turin Brakes, Supergrass, the Flaming Lips, and finally, Radiohead. It was utterly, absolutely superb. They were magnificent, untouchable. I don't think I have ever had a single moment of more pure happiness than the moment during Fake Plastic Trees when the third verse starts - the stage lit up, the electric guitar entered, Thom wailed at the top of his lungs, and I got shivers down my spine to an extent that had never happened before or since - it was euphoric.

Was it just a day you wanted to have, or were you there as well?

Oh, also, I forgot that I walked past him at Glastonbury last year. Myself and a couple of friends were walking up to the Acoustic Tent to see someone. My train of thought went like this; "Oh, that man looks a bit like Thom Yorke. Actually he looks a lot like HOLY FUCK HE'S GOT A LAZY EYE IT'S HIM IT'S HIM IT'S REALLY HIM". I just stood there open-mouthed as one of my heroes walked past holding hands with his wife, calling to his daughter not to run off. I looked at both my friends, who were also both standing there staring and realised exactly the same thought had gone through their heads. "Was that.." "yes. Yes it was."

No seriously, are you stealing my life? Or somehow reading my diary? First you go and have the exact same day at Glastonbury as I did in 2003, with the exception of Turin Brakes, then you go and meet Thom Yorke in identical circumstances. ("Hey, that guy looks like Thom... It's him! Oh my God! Let's stand here and look like lemons, and then follow him discreetly") Except this was also Glastonbury 2003 and we finally plucked up the courage to mumble incoherently in his direction. "Great set last night, Thom. really enjoyed it. thanks.

Heheh, marvellous. Where were you during the set? You don't happen to remember a pigeon and the Hulk on sticks having a fight, do you? Oh, also, wasn't it such a nice day? Did you get that moment during Lucky when he sang "Gonna be a glorious day" and thought "Yes. Yes, it is"?

The Pigeon/Hulk fight. Gosh. I've seen that damned pigeon at nearly every festival since V2001. It would be strange if it were the same guy every time. Didn't the Hulk manage to knock the pigeon off in the end? Or was it the other way around? I remember there was much rejoicing, and a massive thing about it in the following month's magazines. We were stood about 20 feet directly behind pigeon/hulk/(Spiderman too?), so just a bit in front of the big block of the cameras/speakers/viewing platform they plonk in the middle there. Their performance of Just was really weird and funky. I wasn't too sure about that, but the rest of the set was astrophenomical. I boldened that word because I just made it up, and am feeling rather pleased with myself.

As we parked our tents on the hill overlooking the pyramid stage, we were woken by the Darkness opening the festival at about 10 in the morning. That was the only bad thing that happened at Glastonbury that year. Well, there was other stuff, but that belongs in the confessional thread.

Annoyingly, last year was the first year I didn't get tickets, as I was in New York when they went on sale. This year however, I am going to be determined to beat the internet and get my grubby mitts on those coveted strips of colourful paper.

So yeah, back on Topic. Big thumbs up for Radiohead. For a band that use the studio as an aural laboratory, they don't 'arf perform well live.

So about 10 feet behind me and my friends then, if that. Marvellous! If you remember a chant going up in favour of the pigeon.. I started that. I was hugely chuffed when a large section of the crowd decided they agreed with me. Incidentally the pigeon knocked the Hulk off, then the Hulk cheated and remounted, and knocked the pigeon off. And I think there was a Spiderman, but he didn't turn up until afterwards.

And yes, we'll abandon these recollections now perhaps.

I have the Live in Glastonbury DVD, and it's still one of my favorite discs to spin, including movies. I wish I could have echoed your experiences. The best example I have is glaring at Sean Hannity after running into him near the soda fountain at a company dinner.

Kid A and OK Computer are near-perfect for different reasons. I live for microbeats, so The Bends doesn't quite do it for me, though I recognize it as a great album. Hail to the Thief and Amnesiac are both great, though I don't play them as often.

In Rainbows doesn't feel as significant to me, though, while great.

I like Radiohead, but not as much as the hype they encompass. I should say though that Thom is a rather interesting chap with rather incredible vocal cords.

They've got some awesome "out-there" ideas, but still always tied down with a pop sensibility, for better or for worse. Now, The Bends and OK Computer are OK albums with some great tracks, but they really shone on Kid A/Amnesiac, where they got truly interesting. But imo, In Rainbows is pretty boring all in all to me; apart from Nude which is one of the most beautiful songs ever.

Despite all the hype, Radiohead still feel personal to me. Maybe it's the fact that I've not actually read any of the hype until recently, or that the band is actually interesting and worth reading about, but the only thing I don't like about how huge Radiohead are is that shows are bound to be huge affairs with ticket prices I don't approve of.
I need to listen to Yorke's The Eraser again. It's a neat little piece. Also, Thom & Björk's duet "I Have Seen it All" is one of the sexiest pieces of music this side of "Talk Show Host."

The Eraser is good, but it seems like a half-finished album. Most of the songs feel like skeletons of potentially good songs, rather than full songs in their own right, with the exception of Harrowdown Hill and maybe Black Swan. I'm hoping his next solo album is a bit more polished.

Radiohead are a fantastic, fantastic band, and if you don't like them you don't like music!


In Rainbows is OK Computer, but matured. It is an album that is confident, is comfortable. It sounds like Radiohead, but not any other Radiohead. OK was young, ambitious, and brimming with that genius which make it so memorable, while Rainbows is the product of everything since then: the electric veins of Kid A, the skeleton-melodies and ambience of Amnesiac, and the reluctant return to the mainstream that Hail to the Thief was.

EDIT: Joy Division, The Fall, Gang of Four (who fairly obviously influenced iForward, Russia! and the Futureheads). Frankly, I find Radiohead a little pretentious.

In high school I progressed from "Oh, I'm in high school and I'm sad and 'Creep' really speaks to me" to "Hey, OK Computer is a pretty kickin' album" to "Why are half the songs on Kid A instrumentals? What the tar?" I kinda disliked Kid A for a long time, thought it was a terrible waste of time and it was a long time before I even figured out that there's only one instrumental on the thing. And now it might be my favourite Radiohead album.

Personally i just like listening to albums which arnt listened to much or are disliked more (Hail to the Theif and Kid A are my favorite albums atm) just so i can sneer at people.

Also any nominations for best songs?

I cant pick my favorite but Climb Up The walls, Paranoid Android, Fake Plastic Trees, Reckoner and 2+2=5 would be up there for me.

Also Idioteque is great :) cant say im partial to alot of the rest of the album

I'm a big fan of Radiohead (used to be to the point of obsession, but that sillyness has faded away now). It intrigues me how they change the sound of an album, artisticly, but still retain their Radiohead-ness. This miiiight just be Thom's voice though.

OK Computer is my fave album. I think the reason it always seem to hit the 'Top Album of Blah de Blah' type lists (in the UK anyway, at least), is that the album does capture an essence of modern alienation pretty well.

Paranoid Android is brilliant. It's perfect to listen to on those skewy, 'why does everything feel so out of place' days. Some may argue that is every day. I'd also agree with 2+2=5 and Climbing Up The Walls - a song which scares me slightly. My Iron Lung, The National Anthem, Go To Sleep, Knives Out and Ripcord are personal favourites of mine.

You know, I love that Radiohead reinvents themselves with (almost) every album, but it's a shame, because The Bends is about the closest thing to a perfect album ever made. OK Computer is great, don't get me wrong, but what we need is a band (it doesn't even have to be Radiohead) that consistently puts out the sort of transcendental rock that was The Bends.

Is. Radiohead is a fantastic band.

In British English, groups are used as plural, so Radiohead, being made of multiple people, uses "are."

I know how you feel. It seems among Radiohead fans that The Bends gets ignored a lot. I hear a lot of people say it is too popish, but I love it. It is one of, if not my favorite Radiohead album. However, I must say that Kid A never clicked with me. I can see the genius in it, but I just never really got into it.

Is. Radiohead is a fantastic band.
In British English, groups are used as plural, so Radiohead, being made of multiple people, uses "are."

OK Computer is great, don't get me wrong, but what we need is a band (it doesn't even have to be Radiohead) that consistently puts out the sort of transcendental rock that was The Bends.
I know how you feel. It seems among Radiohead fans that The Bends gets ignored a lot. I hear a lot of people say it is too popish, but I love it. It is one of, if not my favorite Radiohead album. However, I must say that Kid A never clicked with me. I can see the genius in it, but I just never really got into it.

I know it's frowned upon here, but QFmotherfuckingT. Every last word. And you're a Queen fan, too. Have several cookies.

You should start getting Kid A to click with you. I'm a-gonna wait here until I hear said click.

Get clicking.

After listening to The Bends multiple times, I must agree with the previous posters and say that The Bends is the best I've heard from Radiohead, and rock in general, in a long long time.

Wow, were you listening to it for the first time, Mathmagic? It's been rocking my world for the last thirteen years!

Also, Felstaff, I'm not sure there'll be an audible click wrt Kid A. I like the album a lot, but nowhere as much as The Bends or Ok Computer. I guess I'm more of a rocker at heart. Loves me some guitars, I do!
