Fitting one to leave you with for the next two or three weeks. Bye!
(Insert paragraph of angsting about missing two to three weeks of Radiohead news WHILE THEY’RE RELEASING ALBUMS AND DOING LIVE STUFF AND ARE RECORDING NEW STUFF. Arrrrrrrrgh how will I cope? Esp. afterwards. It will be so tempting to actually try and catch up with my entire dash, because no doubt tons of Relevant Shit will have happened… but there won’t be time… It hurts…
Noel, can you try to reblog every little bit of Relevant Shit while I’m gone? All the news and tweets and stuff? So I can catch up afterwards by reading just your blog instead of a million pages of dashboard backlog? Or anyone, really - doesn’t have to be Noel. If there’s anyone here who feels they’re providing a particularly complete chronicle of Relevant Shit, let me know via ask and I’ll probably haunt your blog like a greedy ghost reblogging (and tagging!) every last post when I’m back from my holiday. Be my eyes and ears while I’m gone, guys.)

Thom’s interview with Rulo 105 FM last year.
"Colin’s an amazing programmer, like beat programmer. But he always throws them away - like you have to BE THERE when he’s doing it and record it, otherwise he doesn’t even press ‘save’, it’s like "Wahhh" (frustrated noise).
The fact that he and Colin did that song together at the same time, makes me happy for some reason. I don’t know why.

Oh wow. Why does this interview feel unfamiliar. Did I actually miss out on a Thom Yorke interview last year? Does anyone have a link? (Before I disappear into vacationland…)

I was going to take my Radiohead collection with me on holiday, to sort through and systematise. Then I found it it’s nearly as big as the entire space I’ve got left on my harddrive. Oops. (230 GB of Radiohead vs. 240 GB of space.)

Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes has been downloaded over 1 million times in 6 days…

I guess we took care of his pin money for a while.

Not all paid downloads, though, surely? I mean, that’s probably the number of total downloads, including those who only got the free part. Or at least that’s what I gathered from an earlier statement from Bittorrent about the download numbers.

Noel and I just spent an hour or so trying to unearth the lyrics to Truth Ray from the layers of samples and sensual mumbles. Here’s the result (stuff we’re not sure about is in brackets):

Truth Ray

to the lovers caught in (these rays)

and now have lost everything

and the dust in your eyes

and in your hair

rose-coloured (heat) ray

to the lovers caught in (these rays)

it won’t let go, won’t let go

don’t let go, don’t let go

have you no mercy

no mercy

(wild/while) (unintelligible, one syllable, possibly that) now awakens me

and all of this is on my head

oh my god, oh my god

all my life is sin, sin, sin

to the lovers caught in (these rays)

it won’t let go, it won’t let go

don’t let go, don’t let go

(and) you (know) mercy

(know) mercy

my love slips away from me

(cause/as) (iron wings and iron (will))

have you no mercy

no mercy

what is now awakening

oh my god, oh my god

oh my god, oh my god

a rose-coloured (heat) ray

and now I’ve lost everything

all my life is sin, sin, sin (or possibly thin, thin, thin?)

and all of this is on my head

to the lovers caught in (these rays)

it won’t let go, it won’t let go

it won’t let go, it won’t let go

Okay, some additions and corrections after listening again on my mp3 player, which, it turns out, has clearer sound. The “know mercy” thing is the one I’m least certain of - it hinges entirely on the first word of the line being “and” instead of “have”, and I’m really not sure of that, it’s rather buried in sound.

Reblogging for Morgan.

Anything in brackets really is very much open for discussion - I’m weirded out by the lack of a plural “s” at the end of the “lovers” line, myself. I’m fairly sure it’s “these”, so shouldn’t the word that follows that, whatever it is, be plural?

Also, pretty sure the “heat ray” isn’t actually a heat ray but a something-else ray, sounding something like “eve…” (can’t be evening, though).

I’m making weird stream-of-consciousness ear-like things full of space that you can put on your ears, and I feel like that is directly related to Thom Yorke.

omg it would be like heaven. i should do it

oh god yes please do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes I google things like “Thom Yorke’s face” because I just have this vain hope that someone, somewhere must have written a long beautiful essay about it.
