After days of posts with cryptic Worm Buffet images, which were then solved by the At Easers (sooner than the band expected)… Radiohead have now posted a less cryptic one…
The latest post on Dead Air Space features a photo of Thom Yorke in front of a microphone… with the lyric ‘im stuck in the tardis’… Yes indeed… the first line of ‘Up On The Ladder‘. Even the photo’s file name is “upontheladder.jpg“. So, may we state here that the track is back on the map and actually one of those tracks that have been mastered recently for LP7?
It’s quite a surprise to see ‘Up on the ladder’ as a contender for Radiohead’s new album, as we haven’t heard anything about it since it was dropped for Radiohead’s 2003 album ‘Hail to the Thief’. The band were already working on the track during their Kid A sessions in 2000 and was performed live on their Iberian tour in 2002 and one of the few songs that didn’t make it to LP6. Good to see that ‘Up on the ladder’ isn’t dead and buried after all.
