Thread for MME who are listening to Radiohead from home because they're not massive Tories


#1

Just me then…

SEVENTY-FIVE QUID!


#2

Checking in.

Heard em soundcheck national anthem about 2:30pm :thumbsup:


#3

Let’s be honest, a lot of their newer stuff is mince, and there’s no guarantee they’d play a sufficient number of older, good stuff to justify the cost.


#4

I actually prefer their newer stuff…but yeah, i wouldn’t pay half that to go to a gig. You’d have to be a twat really, and moreover, they’re twats for charging it.


#5

there’s like three worthwhile songs tkol imo but amsp and ir are basically swell. although there’s that thrashy sort of track on amsp i cba googling. when i heard that i was like, no hungry band would take this beyond a jam or rehearsals, let alone put it upfront on their first album in 5 years. wank track.

everything else on that album is lush.


#6

In rainbows is okay but I found the two albums after that just…boring.

I’d maybe pay that if it were 3 or so acts I really wanted to see, but yeah, crazy for one band that are already swimming in money.


#7

In Rainbows is probably my favourite because I was 17 when it came out which is the exact age to like Radiohead really
You would probably have to pay me £70 now
Ok, £65


#8

In Rainbows and Kid A are their standout records for me. The second half of TKoL is about as good as those.

Everything bar Pablo Honey’s 8/10+, but even so, i wouldn’t pay £75 even if it included pints and a taxi home.


#9

Stop agreeing with me, please.


#10

Kid a is my favourite, and I see in rainbows as a sort of successor to that album which is why I quite like it too.


#11

It’s obviously a travesty they’re playing in Manchester at all though, as if they don’t have enough to do there already!!!


#12

Oh forgot they were playing Israel too later, cunts.


#13

I bought amnesiac on a ferry crossing to st malo when I was 11, thought it was shit and didn’t listen to it again for 5 years.


#14

off to sit on the nearest available bench or piece of grass with some snacks. free tunes!


#15

This is the way to do it.


#16

heard Foo Fighters from miiiiles out when I was playing footy, once. I’m paying what I want for this gig (£0).


#17

just so you know, @andyvine has paid for a ticket. never thought I’d see the day.


#18

They’re on now


#19

yeah fuck that. i’m quite disappointed with the blatant cash grabbing, especially wrt manchester. yeah the show goes on but a token gesture of solidarity with fans in that particular city wouldn’t go amiss.


#20

can’t they use a pay-what-you-want model for gigs ?
