Yeah they do seem a bit greedy for the funds. Surely they don't need any new money now, they must be properly loaded. Despite what I said above they should be making their money now from best-ofs, for the unworthy, and rewarding their loyal fans with free music, esp since they're going off the boil in their old age. Well In Rainbows was utterly brilliant and better than HTTT, but lets face it they're not up to their prior form.

Program called Scotch Mist on a couple nights ago, think it may be a repeat I can't tell, supposedly to celebrate the release of In Rainbows on disc.

Its just a like a filmed studio performance, no audience. Few things come to mind.

Thom should not let his hair get long.
It must take a lot of takes to get his singing as good as it is on the albums these days, on live performances he's all over the place tuning-wise.
Poor Ed, he must get so bored never doing anything.

That was the name of the webcast they made with Adam Buxton on New Year's Eve. You can watch it in full here:

I think it's a bit of a hangover from the Kid A/Amnesiac era when he kept saying that his voice was just another instrument and it didn't matter if he just sang gibberish. Ever since then his live vocals have been a little sloppy, but considering how old they're getting it's hardly surprising.

Although I think it's a strange decision overall to sell the 'stems', I have to say that the 'Dreamtrak mix' on that Radiohead site seems quite good.

I'll give Muteki (is he still around?) £10 in hard cash if he can make a Nude remix with the Question of Sport theme melded into it.

Anyone heard any good remixes yet then?

The one on here is probably the best one I've heard so far:

Does anybody know if there will be more than one support act for the tour? Doors open for the Glasgow Green show at 4pm, but only Bat for lashes has been announced.

DiS apparantly said it was Modeselektor. I have no idea if this is confirmed or not. Is Bat For Lashes definately going to be on of the supports then? Where was it officially announced?

That's just reminded me to listen to Modeselektor, which I've been meaning to do for a good 6 months now. Happy Birthday! is fucking great! And Yorkey-boy's track on it is excellent too. Odd appearance of "the stars are out" in the lyrics though. A bit Coldplayish Thom no?

Modeselektor are only confirmed as support for Berlin, Bat for Lashes are confirmed for all other dates - this is according their own websites.

Not too enamoured with the latest Modeselektor album, it's very patchy. For some reason Thom seems to love them big time though. I'll be at the Berlin gig so maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, though I'd prefer to see Bat for Lashes or Liars.

Saw the band last night in Tampa. They were fantastic. We were on a hill far back from the stage but the sound was still great and they had a cool light show going on. They played a good mix of stuff, although only two from The Bends ('Just', and 'The Bends' as a second encore, the highlight for me) nothing from the first album. Thom's voice was amazing throughout. Surprised not to hear 'Paranoid Android', 'Street Spirit' or 'Fake Plastic Trees', mind.



I made a vid of one of their songs (off In Rainbows, can't remember the name of it), can't see much but the sound is decent.

Youtube informs me, to my great disappointment, that Radiohead have not covered Chas & Dave.

Cheers for that setlist, Unicornio. I hope they play 'Bangers and Mash' at Victoria Park. I think I might embarrass myself during 'Reckoner' by bawling like an infant. That song reduced me to tears recently when I listened to it the morning after a heavy night out, god knows what the effect of hearing it live will be.

No, I've not got mine through, but then no-one else I know who's going has either so I'm not panicking just yet. This week I'd imagine. Did you order yours through W.A.S.T.E, Chocky?

Yup. On the morning they were first released. That's a relief although I didn't really think they had been sent out yet just from looking on eBay. I needed to check though, thanks.

It's got a power, that song.  Not got my ticket yet (for Tuesday); ordered through seetickets.

It creeps up on you, too. Starts off normally, but by the time it reaches the 'Ripples on a Blank Shore/In Rainbows' moment, it's got you.

To join in with everyone else: I've not got my tickets either.

Yeah, I got tickets for the 25th from Seetickets, and there's been no sign of them so far.  Suppose it's not too big a problem for me yet (the people I was going with have had to drop out, so I'm having to try and arrange something else), but if they're not here by next week I probably will start getting a little nervous...

I ordered my tickets from 'stargreen' (I think) and I remember getting an email stating that they will arrive ten days before the concert, however I got on friday confirming my delivery address and the wonderful woman told me my tickets were being dispatched then. Either way I'm not going to sweat until it gets to ten days before and the tickets haven't arrived.

Yeah, got my tickets for the 25th today and my ones for the 24th came yesterday but I wasn't in so I'll have to get get them redelivered. Luckily it's securemail who redeliver on Saturdays and also (hopefully) my work address which is a hospital and most couriers won't go near.

4pm gates apparantly. I really want to get there early and get near the front on at least one of the days and I definately want to be somewhere near the front both days. Anyone up for joining me because I'm going alone as usual and will probably get quite bored reading a book for 3 or whatever hours?

For anyone who hasn't seen this on deadairspace, this probably deserves its own HOLY FUCKING SHIT:
http://www.vimeo.com/1109226

Nude remixed on old computer parts. Just brilliant.

In other news I was at both Dublin dates over the weekend. A bit middling unfortunately. The performances were both good, but very low key. They only played 2 songs each from The Bends and OKC, which was incredibly disappointing. They are clearly very sick of those songs. The other annoying thing was the lack of anything interesting at either of the gigs. They played a completely new song called Super Collider, which, fair enough, was very exciting. But otherwise, there were no curveballs whatsoever, no rarely played live songs, no new arrangements of anything. The In Rainbows stuff translates to the live setting more directly than most of the post OKC material, but that makes the new songs so much less interesting to see live, compared to what they did to Everything in its Right Place, Kid A, The Gloaming or even Idioteque.
The light show is fucking incredible though... for the whole 4 songs where it was dark enough to appreciate. The impact of the brightness can't be overestimated, the gig didn't feel like it really got going until the middle of the first encore both nights.
In summary, good gigs, but not great ones, and my two least favourite Radiohead performances I have attended. Hopefully, they will get better as the tour progresses.
I'm not now going to the London date anymore as I can't get time off work. I have to get my flatmates at my English address to be in the house when they are delivered, and then send them on to other friends of mine, and in the meantime have to sell 2 of them and somehow get the tickets to whoever buys. Urgh.
