‘Terrifying’ new Radiohead?!
So there’s been some talk on the internet about the new Radiohead…which I’m very excited to hear whenever it comes out…Greenplastic.com reported that “Thom Yorke has compared writing for Radiohead’s new album to that on ‘OK Computer’ - but has declared the lyrics will be even more terrifying!” That, to me, is good to hear. OK Computer stands as one of my favorite albums of all time, and I’m sure a lot of people will say the same. It’s certainly, without question, one of the most interesting bodies of work ever recorded by a band in the last few decades…the artwork, the lyrics, the sound, but most of all the mood that album gives off when you listen to it. Anyways, enough reviewing an album that came out years ago…Thom Yorke denied that the new material would have an overly political theme to it and said “It’s about that anonymous fear thing, sitting in traffic, thinking, ‘I’m sure I’m supposed to be doing something else’.” Hard to put your finger on what he means exactly but that’s a good description of the feeling you get a bit when you listen to songs like ‘Paranoid Android’...this paranoid/frantic feeling almost. Check out the new issue of NME for the full interview with Yorke. Can’t wait. Also, check out Radiohead.com and the ‘Dead air space’ blog…interesting to read straight from the band and see photos from the studio…anyways… “Who all seen the leprechaun say yeah!”
