Well, my comment wasn’t so much about the band members’ feelings as it was railing against the notion that the lead singer is the only one who matters in a given band. That aside, compared to their video for ‘House of Cards’ this video is just boring…to me. (Obviously I’m in the minority, here) For the record, though, I love all of the music on ‘King of Limbs’. Viva Radiohead
I hate videos where the lead singer stands in for the whole band. Especially ones that suck. If this was the new Thom Yorke video, I’d say ‘right on par’ . Radiohead can do way better than this. I’d pay zero dollars to download this. In fact I’d pay whatever I had to to ensure I never have to watch this again.
skipped out of work to hit RSD@Amoeba in Hollywood. Was there in time for the special Ace Frehley non-performance/stuff signing (which I skipped. would’ve thought Amoeba could do better than that.) I bought a used copy of Wolf Parade’s ‘Apologies to the Queen Mary’ and didn’t win a gift certificate. But on the way out I spotted Bill Paxton.
All in all it sounds like other record stores had cooler shit going on and better exclusives for sale. (sigh).
