Amnesiac Radiohead tour

Radiohead to play Germany

According to, Radiohead will be playing a show at Parkbuhne Wuhlheide in Berlin, Germany on September 11, 2001. Ticket info to come soon… {thanks to JAn}

Radiohead on for biggest chart hit. “Radiohead look likely to achieve their biggest hit single ever, according to midweek sales figures. The Pyramid Song is the band’s first single in three years following their decision not to release any from the album Kid A. Despite little radio play for the track, figures show it sitting behind DJ Pied Piper’s Do You Really Like It?, selling 16,761 copies.”

Amnesiac Radiohead

Tongue Tied

Yesterday we told you about a song called “Tongue Tied” that will appear as a B-Side for the upcoming “Knives Out”single. Well, Planet Telex’s own Max K cleared up some of the confusion today. Apparently this song was titled “Cuttooth” at one point and was actually going to be track 9 (now Hunting Bears) on Amnesiac until it was pulled at the last minute. This may explain why Bernard Lenoir incorrectly announced this song as “Hunting Bears” on French radio. “As for whether its going to be a future b-side, when it was recorded, what its called or anything else. thats a mystery and there are one million and one rumours flying around.” Drama! {thanks to Max K}

Hunting Bears

Some of you may have noticed that a French radio DJ, Bernard Lenoir, has been playing a song that he’s claiming is “Hunting Bears” from Amnesaic. The trouble is, the song sounds nothing like “Hunting Bears” and has left many, including myself, confused. We have now learned that the song is indeed not “Hunting Bears” but a new Radiohead song called “Tongue Tied” which will appear as a B-Side for the upcoming “Knives Out” single. The track, which was actually recorded last year, was reportedly leaked by Radiohead’s tour manager, Hilda Carr. If you want to hear “Tounge Tied” then click here. {thanks to DasMonkey}
