     i bet it has already happened. 
Radiohead comenzaron grabando algo de material en un estudio movil que llevaban durante la gira de OK Computer. A finales del 98 escriberon nuevo material y comenzaron con la grabacion en enero del 99 en Paris en los estudios Saint Germaine, durante dos semanas, con el productor Nigel Godrich, aunque pasaron tambien por Copenhagen, en febero- marzo, durante otras dos semanas y en abril - mayo estuvieron en una masion tipica britanica, Basfer House en Gloucertershire. En septiembre el estudio propiedad de la banda estaba ya preparado y terminaron de grabar alli. Durante el año 99 solo han actuado en el festival Tibetan freedom (Jonny junto a Thom) y donde tocaron un tema inedito "nothing to fear". Han compuesto la banda sonora de la serie dramatica para la BBC "Eureka Street", la cual ha salido a la venta en UK. Radiohead mezclaron su Kid A  en Londres

Rolling Stone named Thom one of the "People of the Year". 
Spin named Radiohead "Band of the Year"
Bowie 'Most Influential Artist'  David Bowie is the most influential artist of all time, according to a poll of music industry types conducted by the NME. Over the last year, the weekly music newpaper has spoken to over 150 artists, DJs, label bosses and music business movers and shakers to find out who they believe deserves the accolade of 'most influential artist' - with Bowie emerging as the rock star most likely to inspire young hopefuls to pick up a guitar. 
Bowie was nominated by artists such as Suede's Brett Anderson, Radiohead's Ed O'Brien and Placebo frontman Brian Moloko. "He's always made ground-breaking music, but better than that, he always looks brilliant," said Manson's Paul Draper, another Bowie devotee. 
The Thin White Duke was followed in the list by Radiohead, The Beatles and Public Enemy, with relatively new act Eminem also securing a position in the Top 10. 
Marilyn Manson said he nominated The Beatles because: "When I think of experimental, I think of The White Album." Victoria Beckham meanwhile nominated Number 11, Stevie Wonder, because she was brought up on his music. 
The Top 20 1. David Bowie 2. Radiohead 3. The Beatles 4. Public Enemy 5. Miles Davis 6. Kraftwerk 7. Sex Pistols 8. Eminem 9. Nick Drake 10. The Smiths 11. Stevie Wonder 12. Aphex Twin 13. Scott Walker 14. The Chemical Brothers 15. The Flaming Lips 16. Bob Dylan 17. Mos Def 18. The Velvet Underground 19. Beck 20. Joy Division (Q magazine)
RADIOHEAD have picked up an award at the Inaugural Online Music Awards. 
The group's website headed the list of winners and was named best alternative artist website, after it helped push their recently released 'Kid A' album to Number One in both the UK and US.
The indie stars have always championed downloadable music from the net and shunned conventional marketing techniques for cyberspace to promote 'Kid A'. 
Kid A ocupa el puesto numero cinco en la lista de los mejores discos del año 2000 elaborada por los colaboradores de la revista Mondosonoro en España.

L'époque des référendum de fin d'année est arrivée, le premier à paraître est celui de du magazine Rock&Folk (n°401, janvier 2001). - Groupe de l'année : 1er Radiohead - Album de l'année : 1er Radiohead - Kid A - Pochette de disque de l'année : 1er Radiohead - Kid A - Concert ou tournée de l'année : 3ème Radiohead - Artiste electro de l'année : 3ème Radiohead - Héros de l'année : 3ème Thom Yorke (1er José Bové, 2ème Björk)
A cette occasion, Rock&Folk publie une interview exclusive de Ed et une revue des huit singles réédités de Radiohead.
R&f : Avez-vous emporté le chapiteau aux USA ?
Ed : Non. Nous n'avons donné que deux concerts là-bas, c'était logistiquement irréalisable. Mais en 2001, nous tournerons en Amérique, sous notre chapiteau. Vous savez, l'Europe est un endroit privilégié. De bons réseaux existent, nous avons de superbes festivals, tous avec leur esprit, leur âme, leurs traditions. C'est éminemment respectable. Aux USA, les organisateurs, les groupes, les sponsors ne pensent qu'à une chose : le fric. Comment plumer un maximum de pigeons en un minimum de temps semble l'objectif numéro un. Nous voulons changer cela, apporter notre chapiteau, tourner avec des groupes amis, des DJ ; commencer le spectacle à seize heures, offrir une journée alternative. Les gens n'en peuvent plus là-bas d'être sollicités de la même vieille façon pour vivre les mêmes sempiternelles expériences. Avec un peu de chance, Radiohead peut ouvrir une fenêtre. Apporter sa différence. 
R&f : Vous reverra-t-on sur scène en France l'année prochaine ?
Ed : Non. Nous avons fait autant de concert en France qu'en Grande-Bretagne. C'est beaucoup. Nous devons penser aux Espagnols qui nous réclament désespérément. Il faut également jouer en Suède, en Allemagne, Radiohead doit être équitable, nous ne pouvons privilégier un pays. 
Radiohead's Kid A is the best album of the year, according to a poll of 40 UK music journalists. 
The Oxford-based group beat controversial rapper Eminem and alternative act Primal Scream to the top of the chart, compiled for internet retailer Amazon.co.uk. 
Critics taking part in the poll came from an eclectic range of publications including The Guardian, Time Out, NME, Q, Mojo, BBC Music, Melody Maker, Mixmag, Straight No Chaser and Opera Magazine.(Amazon.co.uk. )

Radiohead Shocked By U.S. Success 
http://www.mtv.com/sendme.tin?page=/news/headlines/001013/story6.html
"I cannot get my head around the fact that it's number one in America at all." -- Radiohead's Thom Yorke
When Radiohead found out its new album would be landing at number one on next week's "Billboard" albums chart, perhaps no one was more surprised than the band itself.
"Kid A," Radiohead's long-awaited follow-up to its 1997 LP, "OK Computer," sold more than 207,000 copies during its first week in stores, easily outdistancing this week's number one, Mystikal's "Let's Get Ready," which will be bounced down to number two (see "Radiohead Leads Green Day, Scarface In Big Chart Week").
Talking with MTV News on Thursday, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke discussed the album's chart-topping accomplishment and postulated why so many Yanks so quickly adopted their own "Kid A."
"I think a lot of people maybe saw 'Kid A' as representing something [larger] for a lot of people," Yorke said. "I'm not quite sure what that is, and I'm not quite sure whether the record actually fulfills that or not, right? It's not for me to know, really, and I cannot get my head around the fact that it's number one in America at all. It just doesn't mean anything. It's just la-la."
When asked how the band celebrated its achievement, Yorke replied, "We went out and we had a glass of champagne, and we all looked at each other, just [shaking our heads and] going, 'What?' A close friend of mine said, 'Do you know how hard that is? Do you know how hard that is?'

"I don't know. In a way, I'm the last person you should ask about it. I mean, it's really amazing, and I'm just trying to enjoy the moment. I want to be able to say to my kids, 'Look, this happened,' and that sort of thing, and leave it at that. If I tried to really work out, 'Why is this happening?' and the record company business and all that sort of thing, I wouldn't sleep at all."
Radiohead's 'Kid A' Rockets To No. 1 

http://www.billboard.com/daily/2000/1011_01.asp?mn
It was a landmark week for Radiohead on The Billboard 200, as the U.K. quintet enjoyed its first chart-topping album ever with "Kid A" (Capitol), a highly experimental collection for which some naysayers had predicted commercial disaster. The set sold 207,000 copies in the U.S., according to SoundScan, outlasting last week's No. 1, rapper Mystikal's "Let's Get Ready" (Jive), which moved 180,000 units and fell to No. 2. 
Earlier this week, "Kid A" debuted atop the U.K. album chart. In the U.S., the album's No. 1 debut easily bested the group's previous Billboard 200 high-water mark, set by 1997's universally acclaimed "OK Computer," which debuted at No. 21 in July 1997. Radiohead's 1993 debut album "Pablo Honey" premiered at No. 32, while 1995's "The Bends" topped out at No. 88.
Kid A ocupa el puesto numero cinco en la lista de los mejores discos del año 2000 elaborada por los colaboradores de la revista Mondosonoro en España.

EMI recalls 150,000 faulty Radiohead CDs 
LONDON, Oct 2 (Reuters) - European fans of Radiohead will have to wait a while longer to hear the British rock band's new album, Kid A, after EMI said on Monday it had recalled 150,000 faulty CDs.
The discs, victims of a mastering error, are being recalled from Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands and Belgium. Production of replacements began at the weekend, a spokeswoman told Reuters.
New releases by popular bands like Radiohead usually sell several hundred thousand copies across Europe.

Reinventing Rock With their punkish attitude, poetic grandeur and spectacularly inventive new cd, the british fivesome Radiohead may be the best young band in the world BY CHRISTOPHER JOHN FARLEY/GLASGOW (TIME)
http://www.time.com/time/magazine/articles/0,3266,56396,00.html
....On Kid A, another Radiohead emerges: if the last album was about technology using up humans, the new one is about humans using technology. Kid A relies heavily on samples and synthesizers. The sound is experimental, but the songs all have a Eureka! quality about them: they seem unthinkable, but once thought, seem only natural.....
...But it is Yorke, 31, who seems the most animated. For its own amusement, the band has been shooting video footage of its live shows, and Yorke has just finished screening some of what was shot. "The video footage looks brilliant! F______ brilliant!" he tells Colin......
...Says Yorke: "The cool thing about Napster is that it encourages bootlegging, it encourages enthusiasm for music in a way that the music industry has long forgotten to do." ...
...Perhaps Yorke's last line on Kid A isn't some mournful pledge but a gift: if Radiohead is this good in this life, we can't wait to hear it in its next one. ....
- Les inrockuptibles #259 - "
La musique sans nom de Radiohead gravit un nouvel échelon dans l'ordre de la beauté : "Kid A", album éclaté et logique, souvent nu et terriblement inventif, offre aux anglais un terrain d'expérimentation à leur démesure..." 
"... Plus que jamais, il s'agit ici de prendre la parole, de ne plus la rendre et de la travailler sans relâche. Cette intransigeance conforte le splendide isolement de Radiohead. Ce groupe rayonne encore une fois à bonne distance de ses contemporains, et notament de la cohorte d'épigones qui ont cru pouvoir le suivre en prenant "OK Computer" pour ce qu'il n'était pas - l'acte fondateur d'un nouveau lyrisme. Il est aujourd'hui dans la position d'un père qui, avec une implacable cruauté, abandonne sans se retourner les progénitures indignes qu'on a cru bon lui attribué. Radiohead désigne lui-même sa descendance : ses disques seront toujours ces meilleurs et ces seuls héritiers. "kid A" est le digne rejeton de cinq musiciens qui semblent décidés à chanter jusqu'au bout les vertiges de l'inconfort, l'euphorie du doute, la folle beauté des questionnements irrésolus. Il est aussi l'enfant terrible d'un groupe qui en se restant amoureusement, passionnément infidèle, a trouvé le plus sur moyen de ne jamais se trahir."

Le numéro de la semaine prochaine des Inrockuptibles (#260) sera consacré à Radiohead.
«Ce que j'entends dans ma tête»  Thom Yorke, le leader de Radiohead, livre, en exclusivité,  ses impressions sur le nouvel album du groupe. Liberation
Kid A 

[...] Deux renseignements importants sur le futur intersidéral du rock que Radiohead se devait de prendre en compte. Ce sens de l'espace, du dépouillement et de l'apesanteur - l'école Eno du rock - a bien entendu informé le magistral "Kid A" des Oxfordiens. Un disque où il serait 
navrant de ne voir qu'une tentative effrénée de suicide commercial, tant  la grâce et l'imagination de ces chansons anéantissent les reproches d'exercice forcé ou de gratuité, redonnant à Radiohead ses légitimes années d'avance.~ Les Inrockuptibles # 257 ~

- #44 septembre 2000 -
[...]
Un suicide commercial ? Une remise en question ? Une oeuvre arty et
pontifiante ? Rien de tout cela, en fait. "Kid A" est juste l'album d'un
 groupe en roue libre, bien décidé à passer outre les règles en vigueur 
dans un milieu frileux et peureux, prêt à laisser libre cours à toutes 
ses aspirations. A toutes ses inspirations. Un groupe dont le but n'est
certainement pas de vouloir à tout prix désarçonner ses auditeurs, ses 
fans (et l'on sait à quel point ils sont nombreux), encore moins à les
"dégouter", mais qui cherche avant toute chose à se faire plaisir. Et
qui réussit, au final, à nous faire plaisir.
BID FOR THE NEW RADIOHEAD ALBUM! 
Segun el magazine NME Kid A ha vendido 86.000 copias (de lunes a jueves) en UK, incluidas las 55.000 que se vendieron el primer dia. Se esperan alcance las 200.000 para el fin de semana, y que por supuesto sea, por tanto numero uno.
Radiohead Treats Ahead According to bassist Ed O`Brien, the next Radiohead album is virtually complete, with a release date set for April or May 2001. "We've got to sort it out," O?Brien is quoted as saying at NME.com. "But we're very happy about it, really excited." 
The band?s fifth album, which is yet to be titled, apparently includes some material recorded during the Kid A sessions, as well as some completely new songs. (Q magazine)
RADIOHEAD TO RELEASE TWO ALBUMS IN 18 MONTHS?
RADIOHEAD say they will release two albums in the next 18 months - one later this year and another towards the end of 2001. 
According to an interview with bass player Colin Greenwood in Belgian magazine Humo, the band will release a "short, experimental album" later this year. 
"We want a short record - 10, 11 songs, but we've got more than 20.... in September 2001 we want to have finished a new album with all new songs. Before then, everything we still have has to be brought out." 
Greenwood also says that the group have recorded with a small orchestra and with a jazz group for the new, as-yet-untitled album, and that Thom Yorke has tried some different singing techniques for the band's fourth album. 
"We've recorded one song with a jazz band, and another song with a 10-piece orchestra. Both songs will be on the new album. On one song, Thom sings backwards. Now that's gonna be a challenge when we play live! For example, Thom has built up a piano part with a sequencer, because he doesn't know how to play a piano. You just can't play the result, unless you have five hands with 20 fingers each!" 
The band are also reported to have booked two more Danish dates for their tour in September - according to Danish news stories, the band are to play the Valbyhallen in Copenhagen on September 7 and 8. (http://www.music365.co.uk/autocontent/news_036485.htm

Ed's diary
20/3/00
there's a line drawn.....above which are the names of tracks finished bar mixing.....and below, those nearly completed. for the first time the tracks below and above the line are equal in number. that was the state of play at 5am friday morning. 'knives up' was complete. i was telling a mate over the w/end about 'knives out' and how it was started in copenhagen on
10/3/99.......some 373 days later we finally finished it.............a ridiculously long gestation period for any song..........naturally my mate thought that having taken so long on a piece of music it would be some sort of magnum opus, a kind of paranoid android to the power of ten..................... the song is probably the most straight ahead thing that we've done in years......and that might explain why we took so long on it. i'm a real believer that bands as they become more successful often lose the ability to do straight ahead stuff well...... the need to embellish tracks with melodies and sounds becomes imperative. and often in doing so the song loses its essence especially if it was written on acoustic guitar. but i think we've done alright on 'knives out'......... 
thom's got a busy old week this week........most of the finishing touches are vocal things. i'm trying to get my head around some new software called logic which seems to be what all the right programmers are using...........the manual is about the thickness of a hardback edition of 'war and peace'.........he's singing along to 'fastrack'. he's hyperactive as well....it's 1.30am..fantastic..
the only thing that need concern anyone is that the songs sound fucking ace on the whole......nicely diverse.12/3/00-16/3/00
9/3/00
arrived at the studio and some brilliant stuff had been done last night. cozzie finished off his amazing bass thing on the song with no name......bass musos won't believe it. jonny did some cool guitar on 'up on the ladder'. after yesterday it was nice to do some playing ...the sun shone and it feels like spring is on its way. more things on 'up...' 
8/3/00
left early......mixture of the lurgee doing the rounds at the moment....but also one of those days when the winter seems to have been too long and you just feel like a bag of shit. probably something to do with smoking more fags...gave up for almost a year and am gradually being wheened back on them. bollocks. this summer i'll cut down. the thing is it's true what they say about giving up ....you do feel so much better it's just that i have no will power......better to mope around at home than around here where good things are going on.
good work on 'up on the ladder' today...good drums and a much better arrangement. will return tomorrow to things i am 'qualified' to write about. 7/3/00
6/3/00
we spent alot of time last week 'throwing shit' (jonny specifically said he was sick of hearing these very words today) at 'i will'. minor panics all round about completing things.....our perennial fear/problem....'morning bell-copenhagen', nigel did some very nice pro-tooling on some complete gibberish that i played. phil did some drums downstairs on the track that has no name.
1/3/00
thom and nige arrange some drums on 'morning bell' ...........downstairs we continue trying to get rhythm stuff on 'i will'. arranging it on the computer....taking a while to do, but these things do.....
nigel was sidetracked last week by 'cuttooth' so he really really wants to do some mixing this week. 'egyptian song' then..........thom plays bass and it sounds pretty much finished....starts off by phil doing some drums on 'kinetic'..................(28/2/00)

listen to 'cuttooth' and it sounds fucking great. graham, our new engineer, earns his spurs by doing some great tape editing..(23/2/00)
nigel and jonny are at present getting stuck into going through the various string parts on 'egyptian song'. good to be back. (21/2/00)

nigel got what seems like a good mix of 'dollars and cents'. more work on t+j's drum thing. did some playing this afternoon. upstairs at the moment nigel and thom are doing 'something' to kinetic. still can't find the master tapes to 'innocents civilian' and beginning to worry. worst case scenarios even being aired ie the u2 case when some of their rehearsal tapes went missing and ended up being sold as bootlegs.cozzie continues editing drums.
2/2/00
sore heads all round, but things are being sorted out, i think. while we 'negotiate' nigel has taken the opportunity to set the studio upstairs for mixing. 'you and whose army' is put up and he starts to mix. sounds good. have to redo my guitar which is fun as it feels a little like playing live. thom continues work on going through and sampling sections from this dat of sounds that we made last night......nothing too strenuous as i think we are tiring a little. it always happens like this. some weeks seem way more productive than others and probably are but the secret is not to get freaked out.....just keep going and it will return. meanwhile jonny 'haydn' greenwood continues to arrange his strings......... 
31/1/00
slow day as it often is on mondays. tape machine broke-down in the main room. thom and jonny did some drum programming.....more work in the other studio on 'dollars and cents' -- percussion and a guitar. not that interesting but the following might be....michael eavis knows how to throw the grandest and greatest party in the world.....glastonbury is the don of all festivals..........but alas we are not playing this year. there have been a few rumours flying around that we are, so we thought we'd better say something sooner rather than later. it would however be great to play it another year.................
27/1/00-28/1/00
'dollars and cents' is a track that originated out of a 'jam' from copenhagen - it's good but because there was no arrangement, no musical decisions could be made on it.........well now it has an arrangement.....thom did some backing vocals and a bit of guitar, jonny put his string arrangement on, i did a little moog and the song is really going somewhere. will write something more substantial over the w/end. 
.
his week we have cast the experimental net further afield to include material like 'true love waits' and 'feeling pulled apart by horses'. the former has been kicking around for about four years now and each time we approached it we seemed to be going down the same old paths.........it actually sounds like the start of something exciting now.
did an interesting band version of 'bombers' which thom has attached to what i used to call 'the neil young' song...we may play it some time later this evening. Ed diary (jan 00) 
Nigel Godrich, Message Board He mentioned that some of his faves were 'Motion Picture Soundtrack' and a new song called 'Innocents Civilian'. The band was working on 'True Love Waits' as well so there is a chance the song might be recorded. Nigel also posted that the rumours about 'How To Disappear Completely And Never Be Found' being 12 minutes were not true -- it is going to be around 6 minutes.

Radiohead take chances on new album
An orchestra and an eight-piece brass ensemble are among the stylistic left turns Radiohead has taken on its eagerly anticipated fourth album, which is now being mixed for release next year. "We're in London at present and Nigel (Goderich, producer/engineer from "The Bends" and "OK Computer") is mixing; he has been for three days, which means that we have actually finished six or so tracks," guitarist Ed O'Brien reports on the band's official website. "They are definitely different ... there's an eight-piece brass ensemble in a Charles Mingus style on one - eight 'jazzers' came down for the day and blew their stuff all over 'Everyone - The National Anthem'. They were fantastic." Later, O'Brien adds, "Of those six songs that Nigel mixed only one is right - 'Kid A'. But Nigel is pretty optimistic about the others, he knows what he wants to do with them." 
O'Brien also writes about Radiohead's plans to use an orchestra on one track. "Phil is presently putting down drums on 'How To Disappear' - we're doing a demo of the song to present the song to an 'orchestral fella'. We've kind of shirked away from strings in the past as they seem to have been recorded in the same manner for the last 30 years (ever since The Beatles). Jonny is particularly keen to use an orchestra but not in the standard cliched way ... more like the end of 'Climbing Up The Walls'. Thom's vocal on it was jaw-dropping." 
Among the song titles mentioned at the band's website are: "Optimistic" (O'Brien's favourite band track) "How To Disappear" (performed on the "OK Computer" tour) "Knives Out" (described early on as "quite 'Smiths-esque') "Lost At Sea" "Morning Bell" "Kid A" "Up The Ladder" "Say The Word" "Cuttooth" (which O'Brien likened early on to prog-rock band Neu) "You And Whose Army" Earlier entries on the band's website offer a fascinating glimpse into the elation, uncertainty and frustration the five members have experienced during the recording, including one entry that starts, "We're smashing our heads against the wall." However, in his latest entry, dated Dec. 1, O'Brien is much more upbeat. "What has also become evident is that the summer panic that led to two months rehearsal may have been a little premature .. or at the very least a little on the hysterical side." O'Brien also offers a tantalizing hint at Radiohead's tour plans for 2000. Saying the band's next task is to meet with their management, he writes: "... nowadays if we want to tour, about five months notice is required, for booking the venues, notifying our crew, etc. It seems like a long time for just some gigs ... we want to do gigs, but we have to make this record - and then we don't even know whether they'll work as a live entity. Sometimes it seems like it's so f---ing complicated." (By JOHN SAKAMOTO JAM!)

Diario de Ed
tuesday october 12 '99 -> Friday 15th '99 "We're smashing one heads against the wall" "This week we have mostly been working on Optimistic" "It would be ideal to finish Optimistic" "Let's just do the end & edit on to the original take" "The drums for Rachel 's song sound like nothing else" "Jonny, how the fuck did you manage to get them sounding like that ?" "Oh yeah" "I've been doing this all afternoon & need to get out" "I can't play that on this guitar" "Gorgeous smell in (???), Nigel." "Eddy and I like the mach 3" "I like the really late roll, the long one" "It's not as sleazy as the one before" "I can't stop wondering" It's friday yet tuesday feels like yesterday - have we finished Optimistic ? no and it could be tempting to abandon it in favour of starting something new - but then we know we aren't too far away. We must see this thing through, if for no other reason that it's needed confidence -wise. 
4th Radiohead album - spring 2000
(Q Magazine)[Oct 4 1999 12:01PM] Radiohead are expected to release their fourth - as yet untitled - album in spring 2000. Currently recording in Gloucestershire, the band have spent the last months of 1998 writing new material, even taking a mobile studio on tour so they could demo new songs as they were written. They began recording in Paris in February this year with producer Nigel Godrich, before relocating to Copenhagen, then settling down in Blighty. Though there is no track listing available at this stage, rumour has it that they will be making their selection from around 20 previously unrecorded tracks. A management spokesman said recently, "We don't know how many songs they're working on. I don't think it's that structured, it's still early days. There's no time-scale, but I doubt we'll see a release this year. There are no live appearances scheduled for this year at present. They had spent so much time demoing up songs beforehand, the recording of the new album should be relatively straightforward. They've took their mobile studio to demo on the road when they were touring, and since then, they have been rehearsing new songs in France. They're got tons of stuff written already, but they're in no hurry to get it done." But there's more concrete information from Radiohead's Ed O'Brien, who has been posting a diary online during recording. In his most recent entry he reveals: "'Knives Out' sounding quite 'Smiths-esque'. Especially Phil who has got that Mike Joyce thing down to a tee. On to 'Optimistic' - must record that soon before we lose it (remember 'Lift'?). 'Up On The Ladder' sounds pretty grim. 'Say The Word' (or c-minor song); great drum, bass and vocals - personally getting a bit anxious over it, as I can't find anything that works with it, or rather I have an idea but can't get the sound right. Makes me a bit neurotic. Finish on what I used to call the 'Jonny Scott Walker Song' - very short and sweet." In the meantime, brand new material is available, as the band have written the music for the acclaimed BBC2 drama series Eureka Street (last in the series screened tonight at 9pm). The soundtrack is available on CD.

Glastonbury + New album
dans le magazine Select (august 99), il y a un spécial Glastonbury, avec deux pages entières qui pourraient s'appeler "le tour de Glastonbury avec Ed pour guide". Un petit extrait avec les propos de ed sur le nouvel album : "We haven't started it properly. We've been allowed to be indulgent but I'm not sure if people are going to hear all the stuff we've been doing. But we've done a lot of work, so there's lots of stuff for future Radiohead box sets."
Dans le même Select, il ya un article consacré à Basement Jaxx. Apparement l'un des deux membres connaissait Thom quand ils étaient à l'université d'exeter. Un extrait de cet article : When [Felix Buxton from Basement Jaxx] was at Exeter University, he used to DJ with a fellow student named Thom Yoke. "I don't want people thinking, 'Ooh, he's mentioning Thom cos he want "Select" to like him'," mutters Felix reluctantly, "but when I started DJing at Exeter I played the dance music and he played the indie music. He was very cool, whereas I...I started a Peace and Love society - falre groove and hip hop, wearing my flowery jean flares that I designed myself. Me and Thom did a Psychedelic Groove night once, which wasn't psychedelic at all. I'm standing outside the club, my hair shaved in steps, holding a big bunch of flowers, and all the hippies turn up looking for acid. I don't think we even knew what psychedelic meant". 
New Album
"the band are currently in the studio where they are rehearsing for the next six weeks the news songs which will make it on the album. Afterwards, in September, they will break away for a couple of weeks holiday. It all starts to get really exciting at the end of September when they start recording. The album is supposed to be in the shops around May/June 2000.

New album
"I know many of you will be interested in hearing about the new album, but I'm afraid I'll have to disappoint you a bit there. I didn't want to nag him about songs put on or left off, unless he [Ed] said sth first, which he didn't. The only thing I can tell you is that the recording isn't going as well as planned."Ed (http://members.xoom.com/eks)

How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found by Doug Richmond 
Thom E. Yorke from Oxford, London , July 20, 1998 **** watch your back, you never know who's there I found this book pretty inspiring and I could personally relate to some of the content which has happened to me within the past year or so.(amazom.com) 
Radiohead have started recording their forthcoming album,
the follow-up to 1997's acclaimed 'OK Computer', at a stately home in Gloucestershire. The band are again working with producer Nigel Godrich for the album, which will be their fourth. Sessions begun on April 12.The band's management company sent a statement to NME which confirmed work was finally underway and said: "We don't know how many songs they're working on. I don't think it's that structured, it's still early days"It continued: "There's no time-scale, but I doubt we'll see a release this year. There are no live appearances scheduled for this year at present."

"They're got tons of stuff written already, but they're in no hurry to get it done." As a result, she said a release date in early 2000 was more likely than later this year. 

(NME) Dotmusic is reporting that R.E.M.'s frontman Michael Stipe may be "collaborating on tracks for the forthcoming Radiohead album." A press representative for Radiohead pointed out to dotmusic that, "since they have had their own studio, they collaborate with whoever they want and they're great friends with Michael Stipe so it wouldn't surprise me." Stipe told an interviewer last February that a collaboration might happen.

RADIOHEAD'S NEXT OK FOR Y2K Radiohead have started recording their forthcoming album, the follow-up to 1997's acclaimed 'OK Computer', at a stately home in Gloucestershire.

The band are still doing recording work on LP four with Nigel Godrich. They have been to quite a few European cities recently such as Paris and Copenhagen in different studios. But, as always, there is no pressure externally to finish any time. 
Radiohead /Paris.
L'information est parue dans la presse en février, Radiohead est à Paris pour enregistrer le nouvel album. Enfin une bonne nouvelle sur le successeur de OK Computer. Mais les studios d'enregistrements sont nombreux à Paris et dans sa région. La liste des plus celèbres est sélectionnée pour commencer les recherches. De réponses étonnées en réponses évasives ou narquoises, enfin quelqu'un donne un indice sérieux. Il suffit d'une seule demande pour qu'une réponse positive soit donnée, d'autant plus facilement qu'ils ne sont plus présents. Mais la confirmation est là : Radiohead était aux studios Guillaume Tell, à Suresnes, lors de leurs séjours à Paris. 
Radiohead are currently working on the follow-up to "OK Computer," which was certified platinum in the U.S. (1 million copies shipped). No release date for the new album has been set. Billboard 
NEW YORKE NEW YORKE 
RADIOHEAD have gone into the studio together for the first time in almost two years to start work recording their new album.
The band are ensconced at a secret location in Paris and are currently rehearsing songs they have been writing since they finished 'OK Computer', which came out in June 1997.
They followed that album with a major world tour during which, as was reported at the time, they wrote a clutch of new songs using a portable studio.
A band spokesperson said that a new album would probably be released before the end of the year, although the band were not having any pressure exerted on them to complete it.
She said: "They earned themselves a really good rest last year, but now they are in full swing. Once they've got their heads down they just want to get on with it and that's why they're in France, to get away from it all. As for releases, nothing's set in stone."
A lot of songs were written but left off 'OK Computer' as singer Thom Yorke insisted they were "too commercial"; these may now be considered for inclusion on the new album. Some of the songs were used for the band's soundchecks while others were debuted live.
The spokesperson added that it was too early to say which producer the band hoped to work with, although it is possible that Nigel Godrich, who worked on 'OK Computer', will be available, as he's just finished producing Pavement's new album, due out in June. As reported last week, the Nigel Godrich link meant that Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood ended up playing harmonica on a couple of tracks on the Pavement album. NME 
Radiohead...in Paris
Radiohead's next attempt to woo another batch of cerebral music critics begins today, when the quintet enters a Paris recording studio with producer Nigel Godrich (OK Computer, The Bends) to continue work on approximately twenty songs that the band has already begun sculpting. "We don't really do demos," says Godrich. "It's kinda against our rules now. You have to be recording them at the right time when they're ready to be recorded, 'cause the songs will never sound as good again." Eventually, Radiohead will up and move their operation to another recording studio in England, but for now the album will be made in France. As for what direction the group plans to take the new material in, Godrich says that's still an unknown but "it's not like 'Okay, let's all play mandolins.' It's been three years since we did OK and I've done a lot of things and hopefully learned a lot of things. I know I wanna come out fresh. When we did OK it was very much in our minds that we didn't wanna make The Bends 2. It's the case of just throwing it at the wall and seeing what sticks " . . . 
NEW RADIOHEAD ALBUM
One of the best bands of the late 90s is set to do it again
Radiohead's OK Computer is undoubtedly one of the all-time best rock albums - ever. While the band has been taking a recording hiatus for the past two years, turning their attention instead to touring duties, it looks like they're ready to get back to the studio to work on a new album.
But what will it sound like? Knowing singer/songwriter Thom Yorke and the band, it'll most likely be a pretty dour - if not beautiful - affair. Steve Sutherland, editor of the UK weekly music paper NME, expressed his opinion on the new album recently online:
"It's hard to imagine that Radiohead won't make something interesting. Apparently they've been writing on the road so it's bound to be a fairly tortured work, considering how much Thom Yorke doesn't appear to like touring."
If the tracks on this year's Airbag/How Am I Driving? EP are anything to go by, we can expect a more experimental sound, one that incorporates elements of hip-hop and ambient into their already unique sound.
Look for that new Radiohead album in the fall. 
Dayly news 
Radiohead Return To The Studio
Emotive British rockers Radiohead are preparing to enter the studio in early 1999 to begin work on their follow-up to 1997's critically acclaimed OK Computer LP, according to their U.S. publicist. The band wrote several new songs while on the road last year, including "How To Disappear Completely," which may make it onto the new album. While the band continues to write new material, it is rehearsing for a Dec. 10 Amnesty International benefit-gig in England, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Also, a feature-length documentary on the band, "Meeting People is Easy," will be released in Europe on Nov. 16, with U.S. release tentatively scheduled for early 1999. [Fri., Oct 30, 1998 3:00 AM EST]
addict.com. 
New album
The official title of the last song on Meeting People is Easy aka Nude/Neut is going to be (Don't Get Any) Big Ideas (Cause Theyre Aren't Going to Happen). Follow Me Around is a working title, not final title, of the song containing that line, which was soundchecked in Japan on the video. Life in a Glass House is also the correct title for the song soundchecked on in Germany starting "Once again, she is smashing up her house again". The band are working on 14 new songs - but none of them have titles or lyrics yet, which is one reason why they weren't played at the recent Amnesty gig. I Promise and 'True Love Waits are also both still in the band's current repertoire - but at the time of the concert, they had not rehearsed any of their new songs for weeks (apart from mysteriously omitted song The Thief, it seems). And sadly, Big Boots (aka Man-O-War), the song that the band tried to record at the London studio near the end of the film, has been dropped completely by them and will never be played again, most likely due to the intense frustration it has caused the band.

Radiohead To Work On Fourth Album? [Nov 19 1998 4:53PM]
Despite having originally talked of taking a long break after a massive bout of touring it now seems that Radiohead might soon be heading back into the studio to start work on their fourth album. A spokesperson at their label was quoted by Rolling Stone as saying that the band will go into the studio next month, after their appearance at the Amnesty International Conference on 10th December. The band are expected to team up again with Nigel Godrich who worked on OK Computer. Fans may even be able to get a taste of the new album on the Grant Gee directed Meeting People Is Easy video which is released this week. Apparently Gee managed to pick up the early versions of some of the new songs the band have been working on. Meanwhile guitarist Ed O'Brien has told journalists that two unreleased tracks, I Promise and True Love Waits, (which the band often use for sound checks) might make it onto the album. 
Les Inrockuptibles, magazine n°163 (du 2 au 8 septembre) :
RADIOHEAD aurait d'ores et déjà conçu l'album devant faire suite à OK Computer : un disque intitulé "Reload" et composé de nouvelles chansons et de titres inédits enregistrés à l'époque d'OK Computer. C'est en tout cas ce qu'affirme une source proche du groupe, laquelle se permet même d'avancer quelques titres de chansons, dont "Motion movie soundtrack", "I promise" et "True love waits". Même si la maison de disques du groupe refuse pour l'instant de commenter cette information, "Reload" pourrait voir le jour avant la fin de l'année -- peut-être sous la forme d'un double album, Thom Yorke et ses hommes devant prochainement faire le tri dans leurs volumineuses archives sonores et entreprendre le mixage des titres retenus. Un studio aurait d'ores et déjà été réservé à cet effet pour le mois d'octobre. 
Radiohead Reload For New Album
Speaking of the Yorke clan, Radiohead's sainted publicist assures us that they are just "resting." But we heard from some of their Oxford cronies that they never rest, and instead have been recording and writing over the past few months the follow-up to massively successful O.K. Computer. If our pals at Melody Maker are to be believed, the new record is Radiohead's own Reload, consisting of a few new songs, and some choice leftovers from the O.K. Computer sessions. As the story was told to us, the band really put their little snub noses to the grindstone recording their biggest hit to date, and ended up with so many tracks that there was talk about releasing that a double album. Those plans were scotched by the higher-ups at Capitol Records, but the fact remains that there is still that surplus of utterly brilliant material, most of which, our sources tell us, will end up on the new album, including the dreamy "Motion Movie Soundtrack," the powerful "True Love Waits," and a dark and brooding ballad entitled "I Promise."
After the band members return from their respective holidays, they plan to head to the studio in October. Whether or not they'll have Nigel Godrich in tow, hasn't as of yet been decided -- but we can't see how they wouldn't want the return the man who turned the knobs on their platinum-selling opus, unless Beck is still monopolizing him. -Jaan Uhelszki (Muzic.com) 
ED and the new album
Ed has been talking about the new album. He says that the band will start recording/track selecting in October.
Ed also remarked about three of the so far unreleased songs: 'I Promise' is now described as a Roy Orbison-style power ballad. 'True Love Waits' is a song much in the vein of Karma Police. 'Motion Picture Soundtrack' is now atmospheric, and involves the whole band. 
New songs on tour
En el tour USA/Canada Radiohead esta incluyendo nuevo material (How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found Again, o viejo con nuevo nombre 
(Nude or Nuet) Big Ideas (Don't Get Any), como ya anuncio Phil Selway para
esta web en octubre.
This is Stefan reporting from Los Angeles...
Just to make things clear, the name of the new song is probably "How To Completely Disappear And Never Be Found". I wrote it down on the back of my RH poster right after Thom said it. However, others have reported that there was an 'again' ending the title. I don't remeber it, but if they say so... Also, I've grown fonder of the song now that I've thought about it. I think it has potential. The lyrics are sung somewhat like the lyrics to How I Made My Millions. 
And here are the very few lyrics I could make out:
?-----? ?------------? I GO WHERE I PLEASE AFTER ALL ?------------?
?-------->I couldn't make out what he was saying for practically the whole song; remember that he sings it a bit like HIMMM. It is fairly long though-----------------?
I'M NOT HERE- this he sings a whole bunch of times at the end 
New record in New Zealand
Radiohead drummer Phil Selway says Radiohead are considering recording their next material in New Zealand, at the studio at Karekare Beach where Crowded House recorded their final studio album, 'Together Alone'.
Selway told the New Zealand Press Association during the band's recent visit "we've been looking at studios to record the next record in, and when we were in Auckland we went out to Karekare to look at one. It's the same one that Crowded House used. It's such an amazing place."
It will be some time before Radiohead are ready to record another album, however. Bassist Colin Greenwood indicated last month that Radiohead will be taking six months off before starting work on their follow-up to 'OK Computer'.(NME) 
Thom : " I'm not convinced that we´'ll do another album before the year 
2.000 (Melody Maker) 
...TOUR + NEW ALBUM
Meanwhile, the band have announced that they will not be playing any festival gigs in the UK this year. O'Brien told London alternative radio station XFM during an interview on January 6 that the band still had to play Japan, New Zealand, Australia and the US, but then they would spend the rest of the year recording. A new Radiohead album is promised for 1999.(NME)
New stuff
"It's a bit early to say what the new stuff is going to be like. But if anything it'll be more diverse. I think we'll go down the "airbag" route more often, using loops a lot, but then there'll be other stuff where we'll be a really simple, close-miked five-piece band. We want to make really diverse records and I get off on that." ( Ed-NME) 
COLIN MTV
After this tour of Australia we go back to England and on the 26th April we fly out to Houston and we do an American tour for four weeks After that we take 4 or 5 months off, we won't really start work until September. So because of that we're keeping a lot of our songs as fresh as possible by not thrashing them to death live at the moment.
MTV: Can we expect a live album?
Colin: No, but what I would be nice, what I'd like to do after the next album is a B sides and remix compilation which I think would open a lot of people's eyes to some incredible music which has quite possibly escaped them. You know, were it not for people like Nellee Hooper and Baz Lurhmann people would not know a song like 'Talk Show Host', which is a very dramatic, powerful piece of music.
