Am I gonna be thrown out of the Thomosexuals if I admit I'm not crazy about the stuff he does with Modeselektor? (Though I'm not actually sure I like Modeselektor that much without Apparat to pretty them up.)

I love Shipwreck, but This and The White Flash are a bit on the dull side. I like the Burial/Four Tet singles with Thom from last year a lot more.

Too much creaky voice on Shipwreck.

Let's just bump this thread every time Thom exposes his abdomen.

(I mean we could talk about Nigel's and Thom's clicky clacky bleepbloopfest, too, but it's still doing my head in.)

Knowing that shot was from the LA DJ MOCA thing they did, this just comes to mind:

And if the world does turn
And if London burns I'll be standing on the beach with my guitar
I wanna be in a band when I get to heaven
Anyone can play guitar
And they won't be a nothing anymore

Grow my hair, grow my hair
I am Jim Morrison

At least his hair now is all his own. Unlike when he wrote those lyrics.

I wonder if some of those AFP tracks are remixes rather than the eventual album tracks. The first one sounds like proper Thom, but the rest sound a lot like they've been reworked by others.

Melissa W, Sunday, 29 April 2012 14:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

I was under the impression that they were live remixing on the fly? (Though that's only based on listening, it's hard to tell if Thom is actually doing something or just dancing and checking twitter in the videos.)

I hope that they're not changed too much from the album versions as I like the clicky bleepbloops.

(All these DJ-ing videos that keep popping up do amuse me, though, to find out that for all Thom's talk of DJing and DJ culture, he can't actually beatmatch to save his life.)

They have fangs, They have teeth! (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Sunday, 29 April 2012 15:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

Could be. It just struck me how untouched that first track sounded compared to the others.

Melissa W, Sunday, 29 April 2012 15:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

Think the first track is just a song-y bone to throw the ateasers howling for "proper songs" and "less bleeps and bloops" before the album jumps off into the pure "electronic dance music" album he keeps telling people he's going to release.

I want the album to be 12 versions of the long version of Twist just to piss people off, but I would.

1 month passes...

So this summer, Mr Yorke will be DJ-ing RIGHT ACROSS THE ROAD from where I used to live.

The building had been under construction for so long we thought it was abandoned when I lived there. Now it's a massive posh art gallery.

I'm on a bus and can't watch it, but I assume that's Full Stop? Love the skittering drums on that now.

How is this song so good.

Turangalila, Tuesday, 12 June 2012 18:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't know! (There's a better sound quality version of it, though, I swear I've heard one, even though the camera work was sick-makingly drunken)

Also, how is his ponytail so cute?

Have we had the sun shining out of his behind yet?

Jesus Christ you take a man who is already sex incarnate, and then you make him play the sexiest of all instruments and the power of sexiness just increases exponentially.

"pompous"

A minute later, Corgan, still probing, finally finds the key to Thayil’s heart: “I hate how in magazine pictures, they always stick me somewhere in the back.”

Kim Thayil explodes: “What do you mean? You write all the songs, and you do all the interviews. You play the instruments on the album. You control the band to the extent that most people think of Smashing Pumpkins as the Billy Corgan Experience, and all you care about is some photograph?”

“But I hate it,” Corgan says, “it means they don’t think I’m the cute one.”

“Ooh,” Thayil says a little too loudly as Corgan walks away, “I’ll bet he’s going to call his therapist in Chicago, wake her up at four in the morning, and tell her about that big, mean bear who made fun of him.”

The next day at the Big Day Out festival, Thayil is talking to Kim and Kelley Deal in the Breeders’ dressing room when Corgan walks past wearing a long-sleeved Superman T-shirt like the one your four-year-old nephew probably owns.

“You hurt me deeply,” Corgan says, touching the giant S on his chest and pouting. “You hurt me deeply in my heart."

How many times do you think I can listen to Full Stop? Or Ful Stop, which I refuse to accept.

Melissa W, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 18:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

All these new songs are so good. Have they played Skirting on the Surface lately?

Turangalila, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 18:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

"Ful Stop" ???

OH, THOM.

p.s. I haven't cared about what that hideous, arrogant, talentless slaphead thinks since... wait, I have never cared about what that hideous, arrogant, talentless slaphead Corgan thinks. Ever.

Please do not besmirch our good and pure Radiohead thread of love with his idiocy.

True, I'm sorry. I just thought it was hilarious.

Turangalila, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 18:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

There's nothing you (or he) can do to make me click on an interview with that attention seeking idiot. He can troll Radiohead fans all he likes, I have no attention to give him.

You may be forgiven if you can find a cuet picture of The Ponytail, though. ;-)

ritchie blackmore IS a better guitar player than billy corgan or greenwood i'll give him that

I don't view guitar playing as a competition and really can't fucking stand the mentality that would treat it as one.

It doesn't matter who's a "better" guitarist. It matters that Jonny Greenwood plays the *right* guitar for Radiohead songs.

I just KMT at that whole kind of thing and want nothing to do with it.

That Corgan quote is completely out of context. He was just saying that Richie Blackmore is better than Johnny or himself and that he pisses on any ranking (they don't specify which one he was talking about) that says otherwise and doesn't give 'the true rock gods' their proper respect.

Moka, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

Also Full Stop is amazing. This and Skirting on the Surface are my favorite of the new songs live. Not feeling Identikit and Cut A Hole yet.

Moka, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's not particular out of context that he said he would piss on Radiohead themselves. And you should listen to Identikit more.

Melissa W, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

I piss on the very ~idea~ of 'true rock gods' OK?

Carrying on a conversation from Twitter...

Taking sides: Thom Yorke or Kittens?

a cake made of all their eyes (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

Thom Yorke. Kittens turn into cats.

Melissa W, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

The only one I'm not really feeling is Skirting.

Love Identikit (especially the most recent version, which made it less Slowdivey and more Ye Olde Englishe Dubbesteppy) and Cut A Hole is just orgasms.

a cake made of all their eyes (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

I wasn't feeling Skirting on the Surface at first, but there's something about it that really gets to me now.

Melissa W, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

How could you look at this picture, and choose kittens over him? Come ON. Have a sense of perspective.

Michael Stipe and Thom might not be what I define as good-looking but they look good you know. They've aged with dignity by the look of that photo.

I mean this is Billy Corgan nowadays:

I'm supposed to be studying for my Cornish exam and instead I'm looking up RH live bootlegs on YouTube.

x-post THOM IS BEAUTIFUL. HE IS A TRULY AMAZING LOOKING AND BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING. I CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYONE CAN LOOK AT HIM AND NOT THINK THAT HE IS JUST BREATHTAKING.

a cake made of all their eyes (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's a mystery.

Melissa W, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah Corgan does say he would piss on Radiohead but the way I read it, it wasn't a direct jab at them, more like they were in the way of him pissing on these sort of rankings and he needed an example of guitarists who get ranked over Blackmore when they shouldn't. (His opinion, not mine.)

I do like Identikit but I feel they need to wrap it up a little bit more. This isn't the studio version tho so anything could happen before I give a final verdict on that one.

Moka, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 20:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

(How would you mutate Thom anyway? Would you mutate it like a normal T sound, or would you mutate it like it was a "dh" (which is Cornish for the Th sound)?)
