top ten dr tchock enunciations

haven't listened to any of these in a while but they are burned into my brain

TEN. "lemon" - you know the one, when the song starts to turn and you can picture him screwing his wee little face up
9. "does" - this goes on for such a long time it goes through several forms, transcends its meaning and becomes a delicate mystery
8."cafés" - spat out very nicely with an extra syllable and everything
7. "wide" - good synergy between semantic content and underenunciated gaping delivery where it sounds like he might be drowning in his own voice
SIX."fire" - captures the whole vibe in one good moment
5. "uncle" - demented grunt for the first syllable a particular highlight
4. "California" - mb grimes has topped this in terms of expansive delivery but the way he rouses himself to reach the third syllable is A+ tchocky goodness
3/ "holy" - he sounds so weary
2. "roman" - like the last man alive at the end of the world doing his duty
1. "empire" - it never fails to make my heart sing

Looking at this, it's weird. Despite me liking Kid Amnesiac-era Radiohead plenty, and thinking that I'm SO OVER The Bends, there's definitely a bookendedness about this list in that a vast majority of the songs are from either early or late-era Radiohead.

TARANTINO! (dog latin), Thursday, 19 May 2016 14:55 (one year ago) Permalink

My brother can sing and play the song 'Kid A' on acoustic guitar. I never thought of it as a proper song until I saw him do it when we were back home for Christmas.

I'm not a Radiohead fan but here are some memorable moments off the top of my head

1. The way the melody explodes upward when Thom sings "anyone can play guitarrrr" (Pablo Honey is the album I enjoy returning to the most)
2. A ghost memory about having feelings and feeling them when listening to The Bends album, pretty sure I know all the words to "Fake Plastic Trees", but those feelings are unfamiliar to me now
3. The drums dropping in and out on "Airbag"
4. The exquisite guitar picking pattern in the a-section of "Paranoid Android", also notable is the self-parodic line "the crackle of pig skin" which was when I got off the "I care about Thom's lyrics" train
5. Feeling like I was the only person on the internet who thought "Electioneering" was the best OKC song, and that "Let Down" and "Lucky" were cold garbage
6. The first .5 seconds of "Everything In Its Right Place", unable to sit at a Rhodes for more than a minute without playing those chords
7. Jonny's delicious string arrangement on "How To Disappear Completely", the guitar riff on "National Anthem" (and nothing else about that song)
8. Thinking that the Kid A bear was very clever bit of branding
9. Being obsessed for a day over "Like Spinning Plates", reversing the track in my DAW and listening, and searching for live recordings; disliking every individual song on Amnesiac otherwise
10. Listening all the way through "Hail To The Thief" exactly once, feeling impressed when it goes "the raindrops, the raindrops", then remembering that I hate this band by the time Thom sings "it's a drunken punch-up at a wedding"
11. Enjoying all of In Rainbows thoroughly, especially the live performance of "15 Step" with marching band, the rising vocal coda on "Nude", debating with a friend whether or not it was OK to delete "Faust ARP" from the iTunes
12. Going to see the band for free, watched their soundcheck and was non-plussed, then saw them play with the full lighting rig and was blown away, felt like I knew and liked every song they played
13. Dancing memes
14. Feeling envious of Jonny's film scores, feeling whatever about Thom's solo album, loving the live set of Atoms For Peace
15. The new album floated by my head without a single Thom contribution making an impression

Oh and somewhere in there I forgot but I stan for their cover of "On Your Own Again"

fgti, Thursday, 19 May 2016 21:29 (one year ago) Permalink

Oh also: the drum sound on "Reckoner", prob my #1 favourite thing about this band

fgti, Thursday, 19 May 2016 21:31 (one year ago) Permalink

15. The new album floated by my head without a single Thom contribution making an impression

there are a lot of guitar and piano moments that sound Thom-y to me though (his solo albums helped me realize how much this is true).

Oh also: the drum sound on "Reckoner", prob my #1 favourite thing about this band

so great, the '60s stereo thing with the whole drumkit panned hard to one side, and the perfect tambourine sound in the other channel.

sam jax sax jam (Jordan), Thursday, 19 May 2016 21:44 (one year ago) Permalink

5. Feeling like I was the only person on the internet who thought "Electioneering" was the best OKC song, and that "Let Down" and "Lucky" were cold garbage

I have definitely argued for "Electioneering" as the best OKC song before, but can't imagine ever in a million years disliking "Let Down"

"Lucky" has a good chorus, but is hard to feel any type of way about besides

bernard snowy, Thursday, 26 May 2016 00:43 (one year ago) Permalink

oh yeah & I 110% agree w/ hosannas for the "Reckoner" drum sound. instantly recognizable (at least, it stands out from the rest of their stuff, sonically) yet familiar... Jordan sez 60s stereo mixing, but I hear the echo of late Talk Talk as well

bernard snowy, Thursday, 26 May 2016 00:46 (one year ago) Permalink

debating with a friend whether or not it was OK to delete "Faust ARP" from the iTunes

not okay, but only because of the lovely moment when the strings come in, which is a minor album highlight for me

bernard snowy, Thursday, 26 May 2016 00:49 (one year ago) Permalink

xp clarification: shoulda said something like "unmistakable but familiar" -- within seconds, the music impresses upon me a sense of time&place that are just as strong as the 90s britpop heyday evoked by the churning guitars of The Bends, if somewhat more nebulous

I should also-also note that the crisp, dry drum sound kicking off "Weird Fishes" is equally great, albeit in a totally opposed way

bernard snowy, Thursday, 26 May 2016 16:00 (one year ago) Permalink

hearing this version of Arpeggi for 2 and a half years before IR came out ruined the song for me. this is such a beautiful song, i really can't stand the meat & potatoes arrangement on the record

flappy bird, Thursday, 26 May 2016 16:16 (one year ago) Permalink

okay whoops -- I'm relistening to "Faust ARP" & realizing the strings are present from the very first; in my memory, it was a lot more spare, acoustic gtr+vox, no strings until they come in under I love you but enough is enough. the string+wordless vocal coda, I had forgotten about altogether!

"Ful Stop" was so amazing on their Glastonbury set last night. So groovy and hypnotic.

I agree. 'Ful Stop', to me, is basically the kind of thing that they were going for on The King of Limbs but perfected.

yeah I was blown away by that Glastonbury performance of "Ful Stop" - the video stream I saw started right in the middle of it. they played "Daydreaming" and "Lucky" before it, right?

Rodney Stooksbury for President (rushomancy), Sunday, 25 June 2017 00:47 (four months ago) Permalink

'Daydreaming' is such a fucking awful way to start a set.

No way, it's a really sweet way to ease in to a set. Not every show has to open with a banger. The pacing of their sets is really spectacular imo - look at the first four songs of the Glastonbury set: lulled in by Daydreaming; going into Lucky, which starts off moody and slow then explodes; into the hypnotic & droney Ful Stop; and then a supercharged version of Airbag. That's a great way to start a show.

It did get a bit morose there in the middle of the set though I thought. Ok it's Radiohead etc. When they played "Ful Stop", I felt I was in some Can in the 70s vibe tho

Not every show has to open with a banger, but I'd prefer them to open with a song that is worthy of actually being an opener.

honestly i was unconvinced by radiohead playing the old shit, which they did for most of their glasto set. when thom sings ok computer songs it's frequently pretty obvious that he was 20 years younger when they did that album. "the king of limbs" is their worst record since "pablo honey" but when they played "bloom" it was a breath of fresh air after their fairly dire stab at "let down". i'm not saying they're in zep '77 territory or 2017 michael mcdonald or anything but not having really paid attention to the group live since around 2003 i was a little shocked at how much worse the ok computer songs sounded, and since the album was a knife-edge away from morose parody in the first place...

I thought 'Bloom' sounded terrible. They've played versions of it which have been astounding, but it wasn't at Glasto.

The setlist spread at Glasto, for anyone who is arsed:

Pablo Honey: 1
The Bends: 2
OK Computer: 7
Kid A: 2
Amnesiac: 2
Hail to the Thief: 4
In Rainbows: 4
The King of Limbs: 2
A Moon Shaped Pool: 2

so out of 26 songs, _four_ of them were less than 10 years old!

the greatest trick radiohead ever pulled was convincing the world they weren't an oldies band.

Rodney Stooksbury for President (rushomancy), Sunday, 25 June 2017 20:08 (four months ago) Permalink

Radiohead are not an oldies band. That's a festival setlist - AMSP stuff is not really suited for a festival environment, and the abundance of OKC material obviously had something to do with the reissue. and of course it'd go over well with a broad crowd. Three days earlier in Dublin, the set breakdown was this:

A Moon Shaped Pool: 6
Kid A: 4
OK Computer: 4
In Rainbows: 3
Hail to the Thief: 2
The Bends: 2
The King of Limbs: 2
Amnesiac: 1
OKNOTOK: 1

Pretty typical for a band that's been making records for 25 years.

They were playing a festival setlist, and OK Computer has just been reissued. Their usual non-festival sets haven't been been like that.

i forget which radiohead thread was being used to discuss the OKNOTOK cassette tape, but it's shipping worldwide today so i expect we'll be able to hear it very soon
