Burnout Album ‘KID A’ By RADIOHEAD Is 20 Today

2 October 2020

Band: RADIOHEAD
Album: KID A – fourth LP
Released: 2 October 2000 – 20 years ago today

Pitchfork wrote: “The experience and emotions tied to listening to Kid A are like witnessing the stillborn birth of a child while simultaneously having the opportunity to see her play in the afterlife on Imax. It’s an album of sparking paradox. It’s cacophonous yet tranquil, experimental yet familiar, foreign yet womb-like, spacious yet visceral, textured yet vaporous, awakening yet dreamlike, infinite yet 48 minutes. It will cleanse your brain of those little crustaceans of worries and inferior albums clinging inside the fold of your gray matter. The harrowing sounds hit from unseen angles and emanate with inhuman genesis. When the headphones peel off, and it occurs that six men (Nigel Godrich included) created this, it’s clear that Radiohead must be the greatest band alive, if not the best since you know who. Breathing people made this record! And you can’t wait to dive back in and try to prove that wrong over and over.
Full review here. Score: 10/10.

Thom Yorke: “We toyed with the idea of making it a double album, but I think that would
only have confused everybody even more, so we decided to stick with the songs we picked.”

Turn Up The Volume: “‘Kid A’, and his brother ‘Amnesiac’, was the result of a burnout after the global success of ‘OK Computer’. I’m still waiting for the next burnout.”

RADIOHEAD – ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ – Glastonbury Festival UK 2017 – Just Awesome!

Memorable live moments

Watch THOM YORKE and RADIOHEAD play a spine-tingling version of one of their best songs ever ‘FAKE PLASTIC TREES‘ (from their superb 1995 Bends  album) at Glastonbury Festival in 2017. It starts magically acoustic and explodes midway into a rousing epic knockout. Just awesome…

Here’s is the original clip…

RADIOHEAD – ‘Creep’ – GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL UK 2017

Smashing live performances of smashing knockouts

‘Creep’ by RADIOHEAD
Glastonbury Festival 2017

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
And I wish I was special
You’re so fuckin’ special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.
I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I’m not around
You’re so fuckin’ special
I wish I was special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.
