“How to Disappear Completely” by Radiohead

Maybe all of the old dystopian fears and nightmares came true.  Maybe there was something far more prophetic in those old tomes we read and studied in 9th and 10th grade than we ever believed, Huxley and Orwell tapping into some future feedback, foreshadowing everything.  Or maybe it’s all just some kind of Philip K. Dick fever dream gone completely off the rails.  Maybe I’m full of shit.  It doesn’t matter.  Things have gone askew.

The Joup Friday Album: Radiohead ‘Kid A’

 

kidaI’m not here, this isn’t happening.

For lyrics like this to be presented on a record such as Kid A is kismet. Kid A by Radiohead was created at a time when the band was facing deep pressures. With all of the album of the year and modern classic accolades that the band received with their 1997 classic Ok Computer it’s understandable why the thought of how a follow up to a record that important could be a daunting task. Somehow along the way though, amid all of the stress and tension within the band, a near perfect piece of art emerged in a way most great thing in life do, completely by accident.
