On this coming Friday, 17 June 2016, Radiohead finally release their new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, on CD and vinyl.
Being something of a Radiohead lover myself – who would have guessed it? – I thought that it would be appropriate to mark this event in some small way at Furillen.
So I’ll be streaming all of the band’s studio albums, in chronological order, as follows:
- Pablo Honey (1993)
- The Bends (1995)
- OK Computer (1997)
- Kid A (2000)
- Amnesiac (2001)
- Hail to the Thief (2003)
- In Rainbows (2007)
- The King of Limbs (2011)
- A Moon Shaped Pool (2016)
That’s 101 songs in total – a playlist lasting for 7 hours 9 minutes and 22 seconds.
I’ll begin the stream at midday SLT, and leave it to loop a few times over.
In addition, there will be a slide show of the artwork by Stanley Donwood that has been published so far in connection with this release, together with some rare old pictures of the band that I found recently.
The Daydreaming video will also be on show in the video room.
Just to be clear, this isn’t meant to be a big party or an event, but merely an opportunity for visitors to hear some of Radiohead’s music in a meaningful order. For anyone who really wants to engage with this music, listening to it like this is a quite a revelation.
