Radiohead – King of Limbs (retail version artwork)

21st Mar 11 (Mon) Leave a comment

As reported over on At EaseRadiohead’s The King of Limbs CD is housed in a 4-page wallet, with the actual cd in a slit on the right side. On the left page you can see 8 illustrations accompanied by the following titles: Roots Of Roots, Ragnorok, Urpflanze, The King Of Limbs, Codex, Axis Mundi, Yggdrasil and Arbor Philosophica. The back has the word RADIOHEAD mirrored and the track list.

For the vinyl, expect the same front and back as the cd. The actual record is housed in an inner sleeve with a drawing (like the right page on the cd edition) on one side, and the drawings and credits on the other side. Inside the sleeve you’ll find a card with a download code to obtain the digital edition of The King Of Limbs.  No word on if additional songs/limbs will surface with this or with the “Newspaper edition” in May.  READ MORE about the artwork and credits, etc at At Ease.

The King of Limbs comes out March 29th in the U.S.  you can pre-order it now over on the Amazon: in both CD / VINYL versions.

Thom Yorke Smashes Dead Fish on Washer-Dryer

1st Mar 11 (Tue) Leave a comment

I could watch this on loop forever.  Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke smashing a dead fish on washer-dryer, playing tennis, gettin’ slapped around… parody edit from the “Lotus Flower” video…

I could do without the fart sounds… kinda of takes away from the humor of the piece, IMO.

Watch the original video HERE.  Find out about Radiohead‘s new The King of Limbs album HERE.  Find more Thom Yorke crazy dancing memes on YouTube (Beyonce’s “All the Single Ladies” and more)

Radiohead *out now* and “Lotus Flower” video

18th Feb 11 (Fri) 1 comment

So, the new Radiohead album The King of Limbs is out now (not tomorrow).  They put it on their download servers early… so, if you bought it, go get it.  If you didn’t, go buy it and get it!  http://www.thekingoflimbs.com/

They also put out the video for “Lotus Flower


Produced and Directed by Garth Jennings
Choreographed by Wayne McGregor
Director of Photography- Nick Wood
Editor- Leila Sarraf

The video features Thom Yorke as an “old man dancing”… :)  The choreographer is a genius.  Not because of his output… but because he was able to earn some income for services rendered to Radiohead.  I mean, isn’t that style just called “Thom Yorke stage presence”…?

As you can imagine, the server is working overtime… maybe wait a few hours to order.

What is the significance or meaning of the name The King of Limbs?  Here’s some thoughts on the album name & artwork, courtesy of The Jammin Jabber blog…

King of Limbs is apparently a thousand year-old tree that inhabits Savernake Forest, which is in close proximity to the house the band recorded In Rainbows in. It is also a term referenced in the Koran (those wacky liberal musicians!)

But the true King of Limbs is older than any future paper or book of fairy tales. He’s been prowling the murky depths for millions of years, biding his time- and now’s his time to shine! That’s right, I’m talking about a little cephalopod who goes by the name of Octopus vulgaris. No one has more limbs than that motherf*cker! And Radiohead knows it, because guess who graces the cover of the new album in all their majestic glory? Not Allah or some goddamn tree, but your garden variety ghost octopus, commonly referred to as a ghoctopus. Long live the king!

Radiohead album #8… octopus cover.  Makes sense to me.
