He commented on singles, politics and why there’s another version of Morning Bell on Amnesiac: “because it came from such a different place from the other version. because we only found it again by accident after having forgotten about it. because it sounds like a recurring dream. it felt right.”

Ed in Rolling Stone

Ed O’Brien is featured as a “Hot Guest” in the September 14th issue of Rolling Stone. Here is an excerpt:

“We’ve discovered an interesting parallel relationship: The less time you spend on the road, the more sane you are. So we are not doing the traditional album, tour, album, tour, album, tour anymore. We’re going to tour when we want to, regardless of whether we’ve got a record out. What we’re going to do is a month here and there, rather than the huge rock & roll circus that we did for OK Computer.”

Kid A cover rumors

Slowly the details are trickling in from the grapevine about the cover for the highly-anticipated Kid A. From what we’ve heard, the cover will be plain in a similar style as the recent tour posters. Also, “Radiohead” and “Kid A” are written at the top right. Also, the booklet will not be as thick as the one from OK Computer.

Stanley commented about the artwork yesterday saying that “it’s a nightmare for record companies.

Lot’s of things going on with Radiohead… The band has been doing interviews and press conferences for the last week and today Jonny and Colin appeared on the German radio station Einslive. They talked about Muse, claiming that they had never heard their music, which is surprising because Muse is often compared to Radiohead.

Jonny and Colin also talked about the upcoming “tent tour” and mentioned that the album was finished and will be released in October. If anyone has anymore info about the interview, give me an email.

Meanwhile, tomorrow an interview with Colin will be aired on Radio21, a Belgian radio station. Colin originally gave the interview on May 29, 2000. The interview will air at 6 pm (GMT +1) on the show “5 Heures”. [from]

Another interview featuring Colin and Jonny appears in the newest issue of Humo, a Belgian magazine. The two talk about tour plans and some of the strange methods of which they used to record the new album. If anyone has this issue and is willing to translate the article, email me.

Paris Metro Posters
The first concert posters have been put in some stations of Paris’ metro/underground/tube. They advertise the September bigtop concerts in paris and contain images from, along with two scary drawings (flying testbears over the city and scared citizens, and a giant man starbing) and other small text and phone lines for the FNAC and It’s made of two similar parts, the only difference between the two being the drawings and the copyright: one is “poster by Stanley and Tchock”, the other by “Tchock and Stanley”.
