  • for those who have not heard it yet, it is just fantastic. and you can sense the classical-like partitions in radiohead songs better listening to this piece.

    i was never in a concert where popcorn… was played, could only listen to it on a radio broadcast. and it was great.

    there will be blood soundtrack is also equally fabulous. especially the last track “prospector’s quartet”.

  • […] is indeed a bit premature? In the meantime, you can get your Radiohead fix in either ballet form, orchestral performance, or live and in person…from […]

  • word. too bad i’m in another freakin country

  • Please lets be honest. This is difficult, jarring music and you would never listen to it if it hadn’t been done by jonny. it may be considered good, but it sucks to listen to. you don’t enjoy it. stop it.

  • Actually Imago, you may not be aware of this but people do actually like music which isn’t just pop. If you think it is difficult and jarring you obviously haven’t hear much modernist or 20th century classic works.
    I don’t like the Bends much, enough said.

  • P.S. The Messiaen is better that Popcorn anyway.

  • Updates seem to come in batches, so, any month now… 🙁

  • I went to this concert last night. It was pretty cool. Some wonderful rhythms being plucked and strumemed on the violins and double bass. Go and see it if you can.
