Someone noticed on the radiohead subreddit that all these songs were getting copyright strikes against them when they uploaded the set. Surely that means the songs are done? It was XL records claiming the strikes to which adds up. 

Ah I’ve missed a good bit of Radiohead sleuthing! Hopefully this means an album is not far on the horizon.

I'm split, absolutely loved the new material, especially the keyboard tunes, that first one that Thom plays is disgustingly good. From the digging over on r/radiohead it seemed like The Smile have an album ready to go, and I would much prefer these songs to end up on LP10. I reckon SotS might go back to Radiohead, but these new songs will remain with The Smile, and LP10 is at least another two years away. It's great that Jonny and Thom have been working together on these though, hopefully it inspires them to get the other three back in the studio with them.

Whatever happens this was excellent. Reminded me of the 2011 era - unexpectedly finding out on the day and them playing a load of great new material on the park plus later the basement stuff. it may not be under the Radiohead title but it feels a lot more like it than Atoms for Peace and Modern Boxes

The thing that struck me is that these songs sounded much, much further along than that 2011 set. Compare the renditions in 2011 with the versions of the same songs as played in 2017 and it's clear they weren't finished.

The songs played last night sounded done. Like they'd been playing them together for ages.

Isn't that they old book version of Amnesiac?

Yeah the book is cool but doing all of it combined is better.

 

fun fact is that Radiohead had looked into the idea of placing torn out pages from old books into every copy of Amnesiac but their lawyers told  them not to do it since books had to be destroyed in order for that to happen.

Ooh, nice. I did see it go past on YouTube, but didn't click on it.  I will now!

It never ceases to me amaze much how much How to Disappear affects people on first listen!

That guy would probably melt if he heard it live in person.

As would we all. Gutted I didn’t see them play it on the last tour. My Radiohead bingo card was very well populated, but that was the glaring omission!

One of my favorites was the Dublin show right before Glasto and the crowd went wild for a certain line.
