I'll admit that prior to Radiohead week, I didn't listen to Amnesiac very many times. I have been finding out the last day or so (as I immersed myself in it), that this was an oversight. Much of Amnesiac is steeped in a very moody atmosphere. You and Whose Army is a world-weary final feeble kick at authority, while Pyramid Song is an ethereal piano-driven piece which builds into a symphony. Conversely, tracks like Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box, Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors, and Hunting Bears (instrumental) are highly percussive, but in radically differing ways. Maybe that's what prompted Thom Yorke to state that Amnesiac was for people who wanted to shag at 80 beats per minute.
and the video for Pyramid Song:
So says Bobby Gillespie, frontman of Primal Scream, and once upon a time Jesus and Mary Chain drummer. And some sites are reporting that he actually will be joining them for their Coachella reunion next month.
WIll, you have got to go to Coachella! And bring all your camera equipment
You remember that prank you used to pull back in university or whenever, where you would stretch Saran wrap over the toilet seat, causing the victim to pee all over the place? Well, I just did that to myself today. Not the toilet seat, but I tried pouring some stuff into a bowl without first removing the plastic wrap. What a moron. I'm just glad it wasn't urine I was pouring.
