Radiohead Webcast Live from Rough Trade East in London *Update*

I miss London so much. I want to go back. I want to get Indian food from Brick Lane and eat a burger with a fried egg and drink some strongbow. But anyways, webcast at 8 PM London time. Cheers.
Dead Air Space

So the show was moved by the London Police down the street to a venue because due to safety reasons but it was still rock and roll through and through. They played all of In Rainbows straight through as well as a very interesting set of songs for an encore.

15 Step
Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
All I Need
Faust Arp
House of Cards
Jigsaw Falling Into Place

Up On the Ladder
You and Whose Army?
The National Anthem
My Iron Lung
The Bends

I have a feeling a lot of songs from The Bends as well as the more rockin’ tunes from their other albums are going to make an appearance during their upcoming tour. Radiohead is back to ROCK!!!

Bold, Mr. Yorke, very bold. Cheers.

“’In Rainbows’ is, at least in our opinion, our classic album,” he declared. “Our (Lou Reed’s) ’Transformer’, our (The Beatles’) ’Revolver’, our (David Bowie’s) ’Hunky Dory’.”

Post-Xmas Tunes

Don Rimini – Let Me Back Up (Crookers Remix)
This tune is some dirty crunktastic techno. Crookers are an Italian duo and roll deep with The Bloody Beetroots. When the main part of this song drops watchout.
Crookers Myspace

Here is a really poor quality clip of the much talked about MSTRKRT track, VUVUVU. The first 2 mins is the track then they spin the Crookers Don Rimini Remix.

Another track by the Cazals, I love the Ronnettes “Be My Baby” drums in the beginning. I can’t wait for their album.
Cazals – My Ex-Valentine (demo)

Checkout these tracks from an up and coming producer from Brooklyn, Alden D. I’m digging his old school techno sound, reminds me of Beltram or Jeff Mills.
Alden D – Massive
Alden D – Let It Be

Radiohead in the NY Times

The “Reckoner” that was part of the band’s live sets sounds nothing like the “Reckoner” on the album, which includes the lyrics “in rainbows.” When the band returned from touring, it decided the song needed a second part, and then a third one; eventually it discarded the original. For “All I Need,” Mr. Greenwood said, he wanted to recapture the white noise generated by a band playing loudly in a room, when “all this chaos kicks up.” That sound never materializes in the more analytical confines of a studio. His solution was to have a string section, and his own overdubbed violas, sustaining every note of the scale, blanketing the frequencies.

“The first time we ever did ‘All I Need,’ boom! It was up on YouTube,” Mr. Yorke said. “I think it’s fantastic. The instant you finish something, you’re really excited about it, you’re really proud of it, you hope someone’s heard it, and then, by God, they have. It’s O.K. because it’s on a phone or a video recorder. It’s a bogus recording, but the spirit of the song is there, and that’s good. At that stage that’s all you need to worry about.”
– Thom Yorke

Thomas Bangalter Pitchfork Interview:
Pitchfork: Speaking of the visuals, why isn’t there a DVD of this tour? Do you ever look up yourself on YouTube just to watch audience members go nuts?
Thomas Bangalter: We are really excited by the idea that so many different people captured a video of their experience of the show in their own way. The thousands of clips on internet are better to us than any DVD that could have been released.
Thomas & Thom both share a love for Youtube.

I’m sure all of you have seen this but I can’t get enough of how hilarious/genius it is.

From At Ease Web:
One of the goals set for ‘In Rainbows’ was to prevent the album from leaking on the internet beforehand, as had happened with the previous three albums.
Colin: “It felt like a gigantic risk. Like Mission: Impossible, almost. We destroyed all CDs after every day of recording. And on the master we’d always write a name which would probably nobody would listen to if we had lost it; ‘Eagles: Greatest Hits.’ ‘Kula Shaker Demo’s.’ ‘Phil Collins’s Hip Hop Covers
