Quote from: Greenplastic and NME
According to this week's Radiohead article in NME, Thom was nervous about a possible US backlash because of his views on President Bush.

From NME-
"The band have spent much of the autumn on tour in America supporting their current album ‘Hail To The Thief’. Thom said that because of his public anti-war stance and the perceived anti-Bush album title, the band feared some kind of backlash.

"We were sort of worried about the reaction to what we had been saying when we went over there," Thom told NME.COM. "Colin (Greenwood, bassist), whose wife is American, didn’t see a problem at all. It turned out that he was right, when you met people face to face the resistance, disgust and dismay was obvious."

Thom said that some of the band’s older songs have taken on new meanings. He continued: "When we played ‘No Surprises’ a huge cheer would go up every night over the line ‘Bring down the government / They don't speak for us..’. Although in Houston, Texas it was a little err...muted shall we say"

I don't recall it being "muted"... I just think they were expecting too much from a bunch of lazy Texans.

In pitch dark I go walking in your landscape
Broken branches trip me as I speak
Just cos you feel it doesn't mean it's there

Shaftr, if I click on the download button, will it be some shitty quality internet streamy thing, or like a wonderous cd? If like a wonderous cd, you are a very beautiful person to share this!!
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Well, a BBC radio show is finishing in about 35 minutes that had Thom and Jonny doing an acoustic set.  I missed it.  Anybody have any help files?

i bought one of these in high school at some mom and pop record shop.  its not a real album, just some fan compiled bootleg of acoustic performances.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

"Forbidden

anyway, yeah, this is some unofficial bootleg shit.  probably just thrown together from different performances that happened to have an accoustic song or two.
