Radiohead: Pyramid Song EP [Jul. 15th, 2001|10:07 am]
collating bones
Now that I know the bends and eddies of "Pyramid Song," it's not as mystifying as it used to be, but my affection for it hasn't gone away. The extra tracks are very B-side--textural and formal experiments, rather than songs as such--but at the moment Thom Yorke could sing the phone book and I'd liked it. Actually, maybe that's what he _is_ singing.

I really believe that Radiohead can do no wrong at this point. It's accessible experimental music. Much like Pink Floyd was in their time.
In fact, Radiohead is the Pink Floyd of the 1990's and beyond.
I know there is currently a Radiohead backlash by all the alt-culturati, but really, it's just that, "I bought all their albums before anyone ever thought they were cool" mentality kicking in.
Those spoil-sports!

And which alt-culturati would that be? Aside from like Nick Hornby and a few disgruntled ee-I-like-a-good-tune-meself types in the rock-crit community, pretty much all the alt-culturati I know think they're amazing. (And I'm saying that as a late convert myself, which is to say a year and a half after OK Computer came out and I ignored it.)

Re: ?que?

Hmmm, a lot of the overly critical people I know are the ones responsible for the Radiohead backlash. Suddenly it's more cool to bash them now cause they are successful. A lot of my friends are like that. Commercial success is supposedly the kiss of death.
Whatever. I have to ask them what it was that they liked about them to being with. Was it the music, or the fact that they were relatively unknown? Fuckers.
