RADIOHEAD "Amnesiac" Cd
Por J. E. Gómez - IndyRock
Thom Yorke vuelve a su mundo interior, sus obsesiones
y pasea por el borde del infierno. "Amnesiac" es, sin duda, la continuación
de Kid-A (se graba con las canciones ya compuestas para Kid-A) pero no
se trata de una segunda parte, sino de la culminación de una idea,
de una forma de ver el principio del milenio, de un viaje por caminos paranormales.
Radiohead vuelve a hacer que la música entre en un territorio de
contrastes. Del Tibet a New Orleans, del nacimiento a la muerte, del rock
al house. Amnesiac necesita tiempo, escuchas, atención. Las obras
maestras nunca han sido fáciles. Yorke va más allá
del límite de la realidad.
Knives Out will be released on 6 August. 2001

RADIOHEAD AMNESIAC (Mondosonoro)
Tiene "Amnesiac", en cambio, un tono más
sutil y un guión más estructurado ("Knives Out"). Su impacto
formal, menor; su latido interior, su hondura emocional, por el contrario,
más sugerente y armónica ("Life In A Glasshouse" les acerca
al jazz, por ejemplo).
Radiohead vuelven a pervertir las formas con electrónica
de desván ("Like Spinning Plates" o "Pull Pulk Revolving Doors"
en la estela del catálogo WARP), guitarras polvorientas ("Hunting
Bears") y pianos desencajados ("You And Whose Army?" cerca de Alpha y Boards
Of Canada), pero esta vez el resultado difiere de "Kid A" en su accesibilidad.
Las melodías, los juegos vocales de Thom Yorke (más presentes
e intensos), el formato de canción, las atmósferas y las
composiciones, en un plano general, acercan al grupo a una denominación
más pop ("Knives Out", insisto, es el único vestigio de su
pasado). Pero aun así cabe olvidarse, como se había llegado
a rumorear, de un retorno a la esencia de "The Bends" o "Ok Computer".
Nada que ver. El principal logro de "Amnesiac" estriba en la capacidad
de la banda por oxigenar su discurso desde una perspectiva menos extrema,
menos obvia, más luminosa y terrenal. Un chispazo de radicalidad
lanzado desde la superficie que lega la sensación de haber asistido
a la obra más subliminal, perturbadora y admirable de Radiohead.

AMNESIAC Radiohead Canada Jam Music
"Amnesiac" is, if anything, a bolder rejection of
the conventions and expectations of the modern music business and the modern
rock band. It's an album spiked with wacked-out rhythmic patterns (and
if drummer Phil Selway is handling the programming, he deserves special
honor), distorted voices, inaudible lyrics, unsettling or non-existent
melodies, and cut-and-paste digital song construction.
Despite seemingly handicapping themselves with an
alien (and alienating) approach to music-making, Radiohead has still managed
to produce some indelible music. The sinister propulsion of "Packt Like
Sardines In A Crushd Tin Box" discharges a hypnotic effect. "You And Whose
Army" brilliantly uses a defeated delivery to convey the song's contrasting
anti-authoritarian bravado. The mid-section of "Dollars & Cents" builds
to a thrilling crescendo, and "Pyramid Song" -- with it's haunted melody
and jazzy undertow -- may be both the unlikeliest song you1ll ever hear
in radio rotation, and the best song the group has released.
RATING: 4 (out of 5)
Amnesiac saves Yorke's sweetest croon and its most
luminous, Beatlesque melody (complete with a "Hey Jude" buildup) for "You
and Whose Army?," the honeyed sneer of a band that intends to hold the
world at bay. So far, so good; true to the better impulses of progressive
rock, Radiohead turn most of their self-indulgences into advances.
Radiohead were fascinated by trapdoors when they
recorded Kid A and Amnesiac, ready to fall into unknown possibilities.
"Trapdoors that open, I spiral down," Yorke sang on Kid A's "In Limbo,"
while Amnesiac's "Pull/Pulk Revolving Doors," considers "trapdoors that
you can't come back from." With Amnesiac, Radiohead tumble further away
from their old reflexes. The next album will tell whether the trapdoor
has shut behind them.

Pyramid Song new single 21 May (Parlophone)
Radiohead release "Pyramid Song" and new songs "Fast Track", "The Amazing
Sounds of Orgy", "Trans-Atlantic Drawl" and "Kinetic", "Pyramid Song" is
accompanied by a stunning animation by Shynola, who did some of the Kid
A blips. "'Thom Yorke sent us a very disjointed couple of paragraphs about
a dream he'd had about lights in the sky and a load of survivors floating
in an aircraft carrier after an unknown disaster or event and we took our
inspiration from that,' explains Shynola's Jason Groves. 'It was quite
evocative, and it sort of set the mood for the whole promo.'"
"Life In A Glasshouse" features legendary
jazz trumpeter, Humphrey Lyttleton who joined them in a London studio following
a letter from guitarist Jonny Greenwood to one of his personal heroes.
Extra Radiohead tracks due May 22. EMI
Music Canada announced the three tracks to be included on the first single

Radiohead's new album, Amnesiac, is the second and
final selection of songs from the same sessions as Kid A. The sessions

Thom Yorke posted the track listing immediately after

also posted a few other tidbits of info about the album: "We are also finishing
things that could be B-sides ." And, when asked about the track "Morning

that version of the song was "barely recognizable, sounds like 'tales of

In-demand English producer Nigel Godrich isn't resting
on the laurels of his producer of the year Grammy nomination for his work
on Radiohead's acclaimed album "Kid A" (Capitol). Godrich tells Billboard.com
that he's nearly put the finishing touches on Radiohead's next opus,
"Amnesiac," which is due June 4 internationally.
When asked to confirm reports that "Amnesiac" will
return Radiohead to its more familiar sound after the highly experimental
"Kid A," Godrich says with a laugh, "We'll see about that, I'm not so sure.
Some of that may be wishful thinking. Half of it is probably more what
people might expect to hear, but the other half, I don't really know how
to describe it."
Why´s it called Amnesiac ?
"It´s about ... the things you forget. And
What´s the overall sound?
"If you look at the artwork for Kid A...well, that´s
looking at the fire from afar. Amnesiac is the sound of what it feels like
to be standing in the fire"

Music fans confused by RADIOHEAD's 'experimental'
'Kid A' album listen up: you haven't heard anything yet.
Recent speculation has suggested that the quintet's
forthcoming 'Amnesiac' album will have more of a song-based, radio friendly
format than its predecessor, but the band's Thom Yorke begs to differ.
In an interview with the Big Issue magazine, Yorke
noted: "If 'Kid A' is difficult then God help us!"
Talking about the new album, due for release in June,
the diminutive frontman reveals that 'Amnesiac' contains "vocals sung through
egg-boxes", while one particular sound is likened to "a fighter bomber
The artwork for the album is being made on a "broken
photocopier", and in considering the overall direction of the music Yorke
said: "If you look at the artwork for 'Kid A'...well, that's looking at
the fire from afar. 'Amnesiac' is the sound of what it feels like to be
standing in the fire."
Speaking of 'Kid A', the frontman suggests that there
was no anti-commercial conspiracy and that the band were merely avoiding
"creative stagnation." Yorke also downplays the idea that the band had
spurned guitars for electronica saying, "There were really old instruments
all over the album."
Yorke concludes by saying "I think people have forgotten
how to listen to music." (Music365)
THOM YORKE has given the strongest indication yet
that 'KID A' and forthcoming album 'AMNESIAC' contain similar musical themes,
saying the new record is "the sound of what it feels like to be standing
in the fire".
Speaking in an interview in the current issue of
the Big Issue in the UK, Yorke maintained 'Amnesiac'
has been finished "for six months", and when deciding which album to release,
that or 'Kid A', it was simply "a question of which gun to fire first".
Speaking about the inspiration behind 'Amnesiac',
he said: "It's about, the things you forget. And remembering...if you look
at the artwork for 'Kid A', well that's the fire from afar. 'Amnesiac'
is the sound of what it feels like to be standing in the fire."
Elsewhere in the interview, Yorke claims the record
features "vocals sung through egg boxes", and the artwork is being made
with "a broken photocopier".
'Amnesiac' is likely to be released in June.

: i don't know them
im with you LA rock hair.
its a pretty shit turn out for three years. and june
is a long time to wait. i suppose some of the reasons are
1. we need time to finish artwork 2. we need time
to produce film work that goees with it. 3. we are really proud of amnesiac
we want to give it a fair chance within the giant sarcy cogs of the bullshit
machine. this means oiling greasy palms in clever manner. this will take
a minimum of 4 months to do effectively.apparently. and who knows maybe
youll hear it earlier..
if you are saying that we did fucka ll for three
years i guess in a way your right. its something like 2 minutes of music
a month that ended up on both records. which is a joke. it is something
that we had to do and thats that.
however personally speaking a lot of other shit needed
to be sorted out which was nobodys busniness but ours. we couldnt stay
in the same place and moving on was difficult and stuff but necessary and
involved a lot of heartache. im happy that it happened at all quite honestly
and i know we did exactly what we had to do.
be warned it aint gonna be like this from now on.
and the alternative was nothing again ever if you know what i mean so take
it or leave it. sorry if we did not supply your demand.

"The track listing is always the hardest part for
me. It is so difficult and almost painful. I can only use the old metaphor
about songs being like children. My songs are my kids and some of them
stay with me. Some others I have to send out, out to the war. It might
sound stupid and it might even sound naive, but that's just the way it
is. I talked to Bjork about it and she agrees. She says she feels exactly
the same way about her songs. "
'HEAD FOR SUMMER RADIOHEAD's new album
is now likely to be released in June 2001
and the band will release
singles to accompany the record, according to guitarist ED O'BRIEN.
O'Brien did an interview on the Australian Radio
network Triple J yesterday (December 19), speaking about the band's year
and their plans for 2001. In the course of the interview, he revealed that,
as previously predicted, 'Amnesiac' will contain some material recorded
during the sessions for last album 'Kid A', which was not used. According
to the unofficial Radiohead website www.followmearound.com, O'Brien compared
the record to Radiohead's second album 'The Bends', saying that the "the
mood is not constant like 'OK Computer' or 'Kid A'." A UK spokesperson
for Radiohead could not confirm any details to NME.COM, claiming nothing
had been officially decided. NME
There will be singles and video clips. - 'Amnesiac'
does contain songs recorded in the 'Kid A' sessions, but the band doesn't
like to express it that way; they prefer the notion that they are new songs
because people start to think of them as 'outtakes', which they are not.
- 'Pyramid Song' (aka 'Egyptian Song') is on the album.." He was very excited
about the new LP and said that it will most definitely be a surprise to

hasta el proximo verano.
Thom Yorke has said about the forthcoming
album: "It goes off in two ways. One is like broken machinery, the other
is really fat and dark."
Rock & folk : Sur quoi travaillez-vous
actuellement ? On parle d'un nouvel album, s'intitulera-t-il " Kid B "
: Oui, un nouveau Radiohead sortira début
2001. Il y a moins d'une demi-heure, nous venons de tomber d'accord sur
l'ordre des titres. C'est un projet extraordinairement exitant, et totalement
différent de " kid A " Paradoxe : la plupart des titres proviennent
des mêmes séances et on dirait la musique d'un autre groupe.
La grande discussion portait sur le séquençage. L'ordre des
titres va définir l'atmosphère de l'album, l'image qu'il
projette. Nous sommes donc là tous les cinq, tournicotant dans notre
studio, fouinant, tordant certaines idées, inventant des méthodes
d'approches inédites, etc. Pour revenir à la question, non,
ce disque ne s'intitulera pas " Kid B ". Nous n'avons toujours pas de titre,
mais " Kid B " est totalement hors de question.
R&f : Y aura-t-il un retour à la guitare
sur ce disque ?
Ed : Il y aura des guitares, absolument. Ce disque
(longue hésitation) sera plus classique dans la structure des chansons.
Sur " Kid A ", les chansons ne ressemblaient à rien. Sur celui-là,
on retrouvera d'une certaine façon, la patte de l'ancien Radiohead.
Nous venons d'écouter le premier titre. Apparement il n'y a pas
de guitare. Si on écoute bien, on en découvre une. Alors
que dire ? Nous ne sommes pas un groupe de rock classique mais nous continuons

New Radiohead Album Due In Spring
Radiohead will release a new studio album in March
or April and tease it with a pre-release single, bassist Colin Greenwood
confirmed to U.K. music magazine NME. The set will include some songs put
to tape during the sessions for the recent "Kid A" album as well as tracks
that are brand new, Greenwood said.
"(We're) keeping it going, y'know, not [to] be like
a boring rock band and do an album every two years," Greenwood said of
the usually slow-working band's sudden jolt of inspiration. The new album
will come on the heels of "Kid A," which debuted at No. 1 on both the U.K.
album chart and The Billboard 200 in October, far surpassing the band's
previous chart achievements in the U.S.
Radiohead has no plans to tour in support of either
album until next summer. The U.K. band ventured across the Atlantic last
month for hastily organized shows in New York, Toronto, and Los Angeles.
Album cut "Optimistic" continues to perform well at radio, and is No. 12
in its ninth week on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart.(Billboard)
RADIOHEAD FOR NEW EP. Ed O'Brien,
who was speaking to Steve Lamacq after an exclusive braodcast of the band's
Warrington show on Radio 1.
"We've done that to ourselves, "said O'Brien.
"If you record 24 songs, and some of the songs you play live are off the
next record, it's inevitable people are going to talk about the next album.
We've got that one over and done with, and it's on to the next one. I think
we're on a bit of a roll at the moment. Others may disagree."
Kid A's conception Radiohead birth
a new album
"I'm very pleased with this album," said affable
drummer Phil Selway yesterday morning on the phone from the band's
home town of Oxford, England. "I think it's a nice, balanced album, because
we've been able to select 10 tracks that went best with each other.
"There's not this sense that you get on OK Computer
or The Bends that we're trying to cram too many ideas on there."
He feels the very experimental KID A represents possibilities
for the future.
"It was saying, 'Okay, we're starting again,' but
we need to find our starting points. KID A, and what will be released next
year, in whatever form, are those starting points."
Yes, you heard that right. Another new Radiohead
album within the year.
Selway said the group recorded a total of 23 songs
during the KID A sessions with OK Computer producer Nigel Godrich. "If
we can find a way of linking the tracks together, then I should imagine
it will be an album," he said. "If not, it could be EPs." But they'd prefer
to release it as an album. ....
The only other North American concert date is on
Oct. 19 at L.A.'s Greek Theatre, although Radiohead will appear Oct. 14
on Saturday Night Live. "We are playing two songs," said Selway about the
SNL appearance. "Initially, we tried to do two parts of one song (National
Anthem) but, surprisingly, nobody went for that. I can't understand why,"
he adds with a chuckle.
Instead, Radiohead will perform a "probably shortened
version" of National Anthem and Idioteque -- two of KID A's most avant-garde
and "out there" tracks. (By JANE STEVENSON -- Toronto Sun)
