Hello, I’m Daniella.
You can follow me at soft communication.
I live in Brooklyn, NY and contrary to my banner, do not own a cat. But I have a small child and another coming in August. Which is kind of like having cats. Only with more speaking and less tuna breath.
One Week // One Band is one of my favorite places on the web. It’s been a pleasure hanging out with you for the past seven days.
I started listening to Radiohead in ‘93.
I was a member of The Convoy, a Radiohead mailing list. I told everyone I was a fifty-year-old man looking to hang out with young people. This perturbed no one. This says a great deal about Radiohead fandom.
Yorke’s big wail in “You”, the squeak of guitar strings in “Bulletproof”, the glockenspiel in “No Surprises”, the Siren singing you to shipwreck in “There There”, the please in “Morning Bell”, Kid A version, the double harmony/bass combo on I keep falling over/I keep passing out/when I see a face like you on “Black Star”, the song folding in on itself at the end of “Karma Police”, the “Reckoner” chant, the muted brass in “Codex” and so on and so on and so on.
Here is every one of this week’s Radiohead posts in chronological order.
Thank You to:
Everyone who took part in the questionnaire, I’m sorry I could not include you all.
Hendrik Jasnoch, for letting me talk him into giving me a shot at this back in 2011. You poor, poor man. Also, for being so understanding last year when things got very bad indeed. A true gent.
Jonathan Bogart and Isabel Cole for having a look at some drafts and saying apostrophe, comma, colon and semi colon with encouragement.
Klingman, who needs a Tumblr.
Dave Bloom for wielding a mighty red pen, making sure my crimes against grammar weren’t too egregious and for knowing when there’s need for a sentence-pause.
J, for reminding me about the Belisha bacon, agreeing to disagree with me about which Morning Bell is better and being my fella.
Radiohead fans, old and new, for inspiring this week.
Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O’Brien, Colin Greenwood and Phil Selway.
As Daniella mentioned, I read some of her posts ahead of time and knew this would be good, but I still had no idea. One of my favorite OWOBs yet (if not my single favorite), and that’s no small accomplishment, especially with Chris Ott’s outstanding week on the Cure still fresh in my mind. If you weren’t keeping up, just put aside whatever it is you had planned today and start at the beginning.
