Jonathan has just given music blog, The Quietus, a list of his ‘Baker’s Dozen’ favourite albums. Unsurprisingly it includes albums by Radiohead and The Beatles, but there are also some unexpected choices too! This is some of what he had to say about Kid A:
It’s really slapdash in the way it’s recorded, it’s really awkwardly mixed. It sounds like they’ve done it themselves out of old pieces of machinery that shouldn’t work anymore. Gone are all the shiny, beautiful guitar tones and high production. Even his (Thom Yorke’s) voice is beautiful and yet it’s been corrupted and you can’t really hear what he’s saying, and he’s singing falsetto. All the stuff that we kind of relied on them for all got chucked in the bin and that’s just fucking awesome!
