In an interview with The Canadian Press
, Phil Selway, the man commanding the drums for Radiohead
, made a passing comment that the band might "throw away" the recordings they have made thus far for the next album and "go back to the drawing board." This comment was made while discussing how Selway and the rest of the band are meeting in the studio next monday to "take stock" of the material they have recorded and discuss the timing and method behind the future release. What I interpreted simply a joking remark made to enforce the uncertainty of the bands next move, Spin
found necessary to make a short onlile article about entitled "Radiohead Might Throw Out New Album." The quote in The Canadian Press
was followed by Selway saying that the band has "been enjoying what [they've] been doing."
, don't scare people like that. The real story to be taken from the Phil Selway interview is his comment on how the album came together in a different manner than albums past, especially In Rainbows
which was concieved through what they were doing live. I interpret this as meaning that we can expect a very different sound from this album when compared to their past works, which has me excited.
I'll leave it to you guys to check out both the Canadian Press article
as well as Spin's interpretation
and take Selway's words as they please. But hey, if Spin
is right and they do trash the tapes they have right now, they're allowed to call me out on it. I won't hear it though because I'll be busy feverishly digging through the garbage outside wherever Radiohead
recorded them at.-brendan mehan
