music fandom, radiohead leaks 

I listened to a bunch of the leaked OK Computer session tapes this morning. it was actually sort of a relief to hear how actually awful (and frankly unlistenable) the first takes and drafts of some of these songs were! though that just made me more aware of how much effort and skill and time (and $$$) went into iterating on them and arranging them.

(I like a lot of music but radiohead is the only band I've ever been a capital-F Fan of, mostly in the window of 1998–2006—like the kind of fan that is on the message boards, collects B-sides, swoons, weeps, has erotic dreams etc. recently though I haven't paid much attention to them, so it was kinda nice to recapture that Fan Excitement today for a few hours at least. it's a good feeling in appropriate doses!)

@eq let down is pretty much my favorite song ever and it's fascinating to hear all of the earlier versions and arrangements and live performances

@aparrish for sure. i far prefer the final true love waits version but hearing the early performances and how it evolved is really something

@aparrish i'm listening to it sequentially so it'll be a while, but i'm really excited for that 11-minute paranoid android take

@aparrish @eq The Beatles Anthologies were released around the time I was growing my .. "music personality" (for lack of better expression), and I've since kept this fascination for that kind of stuff.. exposing the whole creative process, wip versions, etc <3
