I don't know if anyone here reads the Radiohead blog at http://www.radiohead.com/deadairspace/
but the latest entry by Thom Yorke is quite interesting. As he appears to be going a bit stir crazy whilst working on the next album. To quote :-

"today, myself, i was struggling, feels like we been trapped for a long time.
in la la land. very frustrating. and under pressure now
its so slow.
enough to drive anyone loopy. im supposed to be positive>>
smiling faces for the outside. well im f**king tearing my hair out.
too much at once.
furiously writing, working out parts. cracking up.
not much time left. unshure about everything.
im not supposed to put any of this here. so thats why i am."

Sounds a bit worrying... or maybe just one of those days?

Awesome, Radiohead are always at their best when Thom is in a bad mood.

Seriously, when their new album comes out, i will be the first in line, im a huge Radiohead fan.

I like Radiohead a lot, but I've always found Thom's "me so crazy" routine to
be a bit...much. I've seen interviews where he's been quite bushy-tailed,
pleasant and genteel, and I prefer him that way to cracking up.

I too look forward to their next album.

I'm sure he'll get over it. I've heard that making Kid A wasn't too easy for him either, and it turned out to be a great album. I'm really looking forward to their next one.

I don´t know...but what he wrote may be a lyric of a new song, and he is just measing with us...it´s possible,right?
Either way...I hope it turn´s out to be as good as any of their previous albums!
Anyone knows the name of the album? Has anyone heard something about that?

Thom is pretty strange, maybe is one of his strangers days...

i read something about the new album, that in fact will be an album with "b -sides", and some new songs, i read that in greenplastic.com but i dont know something more...

Well, I always thought he was a little strange, and to be honest their last three albums were a bit 'too much' for me. There's great moments, but I'd like to hear another album with the same feel as 'Ok Computer' which is a prog classic IMO.

Something tells me he's not as weird and crazy as we think. An English
eccentric, perhaps? Like Doctor Who.

That's the problem with posting your daily thoughts on a blog when you're a celebrity. When you have a bad and stressful day, and post about it, everyone jumps to the conclusion that you're "losing it".

While I empathize with Thom for being under stress, that's not a bad year.

THIS is a bad year.

Amen to that Andy.

The crazier the better!  Think of it like a influence to the album.
