New Radiohead

I don't know about you guys but I tried to get tix to the Radiohead show in Chicago.. and that shit sold out in like two seconds... then the touts had the damn things posted on ebay as soon as the ticketmaster thingy stopped working... In the UK they care enough about this to have their music minister do a fucking summit on it. Here? I dunno... it wouldn't happen unless it was a president sponsored Koby Teeth concert... oh well... in the meantime I've been bootleg crazy and have been trying to compile all the new songs. I actually gave my copy of the new stuff to the guys at Michigan News the other day when I went to pick up the NME. They were listening to "The Bends" and I figured it would make their day. I wish people did shit like that for me! I do it all the time... and normally I don't mention it in my blog lol... just kidding... well anyway... I have a couple of the new ones up here for your consumption...

Radiohead-"15 Step"

Radiohead- "Four Minute Warning"

Radiohead- "Last Flowers"

And my personal favourite (and everyone elses) this has been around since the "OK Computer" days...

Radiohead- "Big Ideas"

And also for those of you who SOMEHOW missed this "life changing" email... Thom York is releasing a solo album...

this is just a note to say that something has been kicking around in the background that i have not told you about.
its called The Eraser.
nigel produced & arranged it .
i wrote and played it.
the elements have been kicking round now for a few years and needed to be finished & i have been itching to do something like this for ages.
it was fun and quick to do.
inevitably it is more beats & electronics.
but its songs.
stanley did the cover.
yes its a record!
no its not a radiohead record.
as you know the band are now touring and writing new stuff and getting to a good space so i want no crap about me being a traitor or whatever splitting up blah blah...
this was all done with their blessing. and i don't wanna hear that word solo. doesnt sound right.
ok then thats that.

i think its out in july and im pretty certain XL are going to put it out.

love thom"

Check out that homepage... it has a wicked little animation on the main screen.. in fact last time I checked that was all that was there.. that an a mailing list sign-up... Here is a track from Thom's new album...

This is the suspicious absence of anything even connected to his album... apparently a lot of people got nailed to the wall for posting tracks to his album... I OBVIOUSLY could not have done that as the album was just being spoken of at the time of this post... what I had posted was a Radiohead performance of a song that ended up on the album...

Hope you all enjoy these... I will try more often to post... I have been on the verge of getting fired here for a little while so I haven't had the time to post like I used to... I will make more of an effort though... but PLEASE suggest this site to the Hype Machine so I can get listed! I'm still working on making sure I have all the qualifications though :(
