Radiohead: Still Better Than Anyone At Keeping The Internet Interested In Their Music

thom 500x338 Radiohead: Still Better Than Anyone At Keeping The Internet Interested In Their MusicLast week, Radiohead fanboys/girls got all upset thanks to someone taking the time to type out part of a Thom Yorke Interview from the July/August issue of The Believer in which the Radiohead frontman said that his band had sworn off the album format. “None of us want to get into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again,” Yorke told Ross Simonini. “It’s just become such a drag. It worked with In Rainbows because we had a real fixed idea about where we were going. But we’ve all said that we can’t possibly dive into that again. It’ll kill us.” Some people took this to mean that the band was breaking up and freaked out accordingly, but apparently that statement merely meant that they’d given up on the fusty old model of releasing multiple songs under the same umbrella—because yesterday, a new song by the band wormed its way onto the Internet!


Behold, “These Are My Twisted Words,” which was unleashed via, naturally, a cryptic post on the band’s fan board AtEaseWeb:



The MP3—which is “out there,” for those of you who are feeling lucky—also had the following text embedded in its data:

i just wanted to reassure readers
that following representations
seeking confirmation
that before your very eyes
behind the wall of ice
that the box is not under threat
however they are set to remove
other boxes
in fact i have the list in front of me
i went to a briefing on their plans
and challenged them to tell me
exactly what the cost would be

they spoke in broad terms



Which I think means “Don’t worry, baby, everything will turn out alright.” But I’m sure there will be another 15,000 interpretations of the above statement between now and the time I click “post.”
