in a town full of rubber plans

When I started my Radiohead education a few years back (yes, I’m slow), everyone told me to start with OK Computer. Well, I finally got around to picking through other albums (besides Pablo Honey and In Rainbows) – and I must say, while OK Computer was quite fabulous, The Bends had me at hello. Its so rich, and elicits wrist twirling, and really sounds like 1995. If you know what I mean. I like that.

Yes, that’s my breaking news for the day. An album released nearly 14 years ago, to great success, is grand.

Now its official.

    The bends is their best for me too.

  2. Isn’t it great when one discovers anew a disc from the past? The Bends is a terrific one to discover as well. Like all of Radiohead’s records it has its distinctive charms and artistic flair that help to distinguish it. Interesting too when you say its so 1995. I was listening to Pavement’s Brighten the Corners cd last night as I walked in the light snow and it immediately took me back ten years. Definitely one of musics magic little abilities.

    Now, since you’re taking votes… Kid A is my favourite Radiohead disc and I never tire of listening to it. Mind you each of their recordings has its own distinctive appeal.

    Your homework for tonight. Listen to Remain in Light by Talking Heads. So very 1980!

    Great post!


  3. I completely adore this video. Once of my favourites ever. May I also recommend…

    Stick with it – it’s brilliant!

  4. Fearless: Its hard to beat.

    Sean: I’m constantly discovering old (new) music, its great listening with a new perspective. I’ve been listening to Pavement a lot as well, I know what you mean.

    Kid A is next on the list, when I’m done with The Bends, I’ll be sure to report back!

    Will do, I’ll get to after breakfast. :)

    Karen: It says “This video is not available for me country” :( Can you give me the name?

  5. No argument from me, The Bends is a fantastic album, and I love that video for Just. What is the man saying, do you think?

    I am continually changing my favourite Radiohead album, because, as Sean said, they each have their own distinctive appeal. Recently I have been hung up on the B-sides and rarities.

  6. I have no clue, eternal mystery. But the video is great. Videos just aren’t that rich anymore.

    They really are very distinct. I think I’ll be spinning this one for quite some time. :)

  7. Bum! It’s the video for the Mark Ronson ‘Just’. A wonderful, but quite respectful, parody.

  8. Ah, great. I shall look it up now! :)

  9. When you swing through Calgary, you can visit with the High Priestess of RadioHead and achieve an even high qualification.
    Ps She mentioned that you’d be visiting.

  10. Indeed, hopefully I’ll be all caught up on my Radiohead education so I can pass the test! ;) Yes, looking forward to it!

  11. A lot of middle attacks happen someplace other than at hospitals. From now crisis medical treatment is a fabric climatic conditions b rudiments in saving lives. Because of this, hospitals are always striving to put their “door to balloon” ratio. According to some EMTs, the comprehensive age should be less than an hour and a half, in mandate to insure the paramount unplanned of survival.
    Ninety minutes (an hour and a half) may look like a group of experience, but not when you bear in mind what thistime consist of: the set because of an ambulance to get, also in behalf of predicament lifesaving routines to be executed, through despite the submissive to be transferred into a flexible lifesaving constituent, and transported to the nearest hospital. Aeons ago on provisions, EMTs must disburden the tolerant, hook them up to an EKG clique, and wavelength with the sickbay prior to their reaching.
    Versatile EKG machines now womanize an required place in reducing the “door to balloon” time. Thanks to bluetooth technology, paramedics can today use a 12-lead EKG instrument while the patient is on route to the asylum, and conveys the results directly to the sanatorium danger room. This data gives danger personnel a deeply start on setting up as a service to the patient’s influx. In a place where every record counts, the distinction of alert EKG units cannot be discounted.
    Everyone convalescent home with a existent piece in bettering their answer chance is Loyola University Infirmary in Illinois. Their Heart Censure Alacritous Comeback Team determines that an crisis combine is accessible at Loyola, 24/7. This team includes a regular cardiologist at all times.
    Through their partnership with emergency society services, Loyola hopes to significantly diminish the set it takes them to takes to thing – from the term the 911 entreat is placed until the heart rush acquiescent arrives is gets the basic treatment. In most cases, this requires a balloon catheter to be situated in the blocked artery, which reopens the gush of blood washing one’s hands of the heart. Being efficient to come a determined to this step of healing within three hours is invigorating, because after that spell the risks connected with the process may be too high. The sooner the clogged artery can be opened, the recovered the presumption of survival.
