Le Monde selon Radiohead

von: Martina Weber Filed under: Blog | TB | Tags:  3 Comments

 

Gestern Abend lief auf ARTE eine sehr sehenswerte Dokumentation über Radiohead, die Entwicklung ihrer Arbeit, angefangen von ihrem Durchbruch mit dem Song Creep (1993) bis zu ihrem Album A Moon Shaped Pool (2016). Es geht um ihr politisches Engagement, Bezugspunkte ihrer Alben, Prägungen durch George Orwell, Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky und Thomas Pynchon und den Zeitgeist der 70er und 80er Jahre. Der Film dauert 53 Minuten und ist unter diesem Link bis 6. Januar 2020 verfügbar.

    Finally back, long night drive, sometimes It happens without making radio, but the radio in my car was playing, out of nowhere, Zagger and Evans, In The Year 2525, I was a school boy, when it was played again and again and again.

    It seems to be a new documentary, Manfred Eicher regularly visits their concerts. He speaks enthusiastically about the band, and the producer, too :), Mr. Nigel Godrich. Don‘t miss ANIMA, the wonderful short film with three songs from Thom Yorke‘s best solo album with the same name. It‘s a gas.

    I didn‘t like OK COMPUTER, when it came out. Like i didn‘t like ASTRAL WEEKS. Both corrected by experience. Normally my younger and very much younger ego were both much more reliable when detecting musics for many returns.

    I was in London once when a Radiohead album came out, Hail To The Thief it might have been. I was in a shop for papers and pencils, and they played this tricky music like background music though it is no background music at all. So there were these polyrhythms, this entrancing voice, wild and tender, and I forgot what I was looking for (papers or pencils).

    Danke für den Tip – hervorragend, um das Wochenende zu beenden.

    Ein guter Tipp, Martina.

    Radiohead kannte ich kaum. Auch bildästhetisch eine brilliante Dokumentation, mit aktueller Zeitdiagnose und, wie du schreibst, mit interessanten Bezugspunkten.
