Mission: Re-Listen-OK Computer by Radiohead

 

Mission: Re-Listen is PodCloud1’s Prime Rewind!

Each month we’re re-listening to a classic album that was released that same month.

Radiohead’s OK Computer (released in May of 1997)

Radiohead first appeared in the early 90s with the grunge-flavored hit “Creep”. After a two year tour, the band felt trapped playing songs that they had long outgrown. Critics dismissed them as Nirvana-lite and the band nearly broke up due to the pressure of sudden success. For their own survival, they moved away from grunge to a much more introspective sound for their second record, 1995’s “The Bends”.

During “The Bends” tour, Brian Eno asked the band to contribute a song to a charity compilation album. On a day off, Radiohead recorded the song “Lucky” in five hours with engineer Nigel Godrich who had assisted with “The Bends”. The recording session inspired the band shaping the sound and mood of where they wanted to go in the future.

Taking a break from touring in January 1996, Radiohead took advantage of the success of “The Bends”. Their label gave them a £100,000 budget to purchase recording equipment. They consulted with Godrich for advice on what equipment to buy. He quickly outgrew his role as advisor and would become the band’s co-producer-a title he has held for every Radiohead album since.

Radiohead sought to distance themselves the soul-searching tone of “The Bends”. The plan was to record a new album away from the big city and to do it themselves. When they started rehearsing and recording in July of 1996, no one could imagine that the resulting record would change the course of rock music forever.

(click player for Radiohead-OK Computer)

OK Computer is Radiohead’s third studio album which was first released in May of 1997 in the UK with a wider release across the globe the following month. The record marked a dramatic shift in tone toward a more experimental sound. It featuring abstract lyrics, densely layered atmospherics and an eclectic range of influences such as Miles Davis’ “Bitches Brew”, soundtrack composer Ennio Morricone and the Krautrock band Can. The band expanded their musical palette to include electric piano, Mellotron, cello and other strings, glockenspiel and electronic effects. Spin Magazine described the album as “a DIY electronica album made with guitars”.

The lyrics, written by lead singer Thom Yorke, were more abstract and oblique compared to the personal, emotional lyrics he’d written for “The Bends”. One critic described them as “a mixture of overheard conversations, techno-speak and fragments of a harsh diary with images of riot police at political rallies, anguished lives in tidy suburbs, yuppies freaking out and sympathetic aliens gliding overhead”. Recurring themes included transport, technology, insanity, death, modern British life, globalization and anti-capitalism.

Although the songs share common themes, Radiohead have stated they do not consider OK Computer to be a concept album. However the band did intend for the album to be heard as a whole and spent two weeks finalizing the track order. The title “OK Computer” was taken from the 1978 Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy radio series that the band listened to on the bus during their 1996 tour. Yorke said the title referred to embracing the future and yet being terrified by it. He likened it to standing in a room where all of the appliances are going off at once and listening to the sound it makes.

The album’s artwork was a computer-generated collage of images and text that was intended to serve as a visual diary of the recording sessions. It included the image of two stick figures shaking hands which Yorke explained as a symbol of exploitation. “Someone’s being sold something they don’t really want and someone’s being friendly because they’re trying to sell something” he said. Visual motifs included freeways, airplanes, families with children, corporate logos and cityscapes. The artwork included health-related instructions in both English and Greek. One critic described the use of non-sequiturs as “being lifestyle-coached by a lunatic”.

The recording began in July of 1996 at a converted shed in Oxfordshire they dubbed Canned Applause Studio. Striking out on their own forced the band to re-learn their creative process as things started out slowly. They had four songs nearly completed when their label requested they take a break for a 13-date American tour opening for Alanis Mosissette. During these shows, the band performed early versions of several new songs honing the material in front of audiences.

Radiohead resumed recording in September of 1996 at a historic mansion called St. Catherine’s Court. The change in setting marked an important transition in the recording process. The band made extensive use of the different rooms and acoustics in the mansion incorporating the natural reverberation of stone staircases and ballrooms. Much of the music was recorded live without overdubbing. Many of Yorke’s lyrics were first takes. By Christmas, most of OK Computer’s basic tracks had been completed and the band had narrowed the track listing down to 14 songs. String parts were recorded at Abbey Road Studios in January of 1997 and the album was mixed over the next few months at various studios around London.

When Radiohead submitted the completed project, their record label saw it as commercial suicide. The label lowered its sales forecasts dramatically. Label representatives were disappointed with the lack of marketable singles especially the absence of anything resembling “Creep”. The band chose “Paranoid Android” as the first single despite its unusually long running time and lack of a catchy chorus. It was released in May of 1997 and, due to the strength of frequent radio play and MTV rotation of the song’s video, it reached number three in the UK giving the band their highest chart position to date.

The album debuted at number one in the UK and held that spot for two weeks. It stayed in the top ten for several weeks afterwards eventually becoming the eighth-best selling record of the year. The songs “Karma Police” and “No Surprises” were released as singles in the following months with each ending up in the UK top ten. By February of 1998, OK Computer had sold at least half a million copies in the UK and two million worldwide. Sales continued steadily over the next few years with the record eventually certified double platinum in the U.S.

It won the Best Alternative Music Album at the 1998 Grammys and it appeared on many critics’ lists and listener polls for the best album of 1997. Over the years, OK Computer has appeared frequently in lists of the greatest albums of all time including NME, Melody Maker, Spin, Pitchfork and Time Magazine. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked it at number 162 on it’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. In 2015, the U.S. Registry of the Library of Congress selected the album for preservation in the National Recording Archives designating it as “a sound recording that has had significant cultural, historical or aesthetic impact in American life”.

OK Computer has been credited with playing a big role in the decline of Britpop. The dominant UK guitar pop sound shifted toward an approximation of Radiohead’s mixture of electronica and rock. Many of the next generation of British alternative bands including The Verve, Travis, Bloc Party and Stereophonics have sited the album’s influence on their music. In a response typical of the group, Radiohead sited “the pervasiveness of bands that sound like us” as one reason why they broke with the style of OK Computer for their next album “Kid A”.

Mission: Re-Listen-Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty
Mission: Re-Listen is PodCloud1’s Prime Rewind!

Each month we’re re-listening to a classic album that was released that same month.

Tom Petty’s Full Moon Fever (released in April of 1989)

By 1987, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers had been riding a wave of popularity since the late 70s which included 7 studio albums and numerous hit singles. They had just completed a successful sold-out concert tour behind their “Let Me Up (I’ve Had Enough)” record when Petty announced he’d be taking a break to record a solo album without the Heartbreakers. Since Bruce Springsteen had recently parted company with The E-Street Band to pursue a solo career, many fans wondered if Petty’s decision would mark the end of his band as well. This included the members of The Heartbreakers.

Petty spent most of the next year writing and recording songs for the project. However the process was interrupted to allow time for the recording of the first Traveling Wilburys’ album. This supergroup included Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne of Electric Light Orchestra. The pairing of Petty and Lynne worked well. They continued to collaborate on Petty’s solo project with Lynne also serving as co-producer. Recorded mainly in the relaxed atmosphere of Heartbreaker Mike Campbell’s garage studio, Petty would later say it was the most enjoyable record of his career. It would also become his commercial peak as an artist.

Enjoy this classic album re-listen of Tom Petty’s Full Moon Fever.

2. I Won’t Back Down
3. Love Is A Long Road
4. A Face In The Crowd

6. I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better

9. The Apartment Song
10. Alright For Now
11. A Mind With A Heart Of Its Own
12. Zombie Zoo

(click player for Tom Petty-Full Moon Fever)

 

Full Moon Fever was released on April 24, 1989, by MCA Records. It featured contributions from members of The Heartbreakers, most notably Mike Campbell. It also featured participation from Petty’s bandmates in The Traveling Wilburys’ George Harrison, Roy Orbison (who died prior to its release), and Jeff Lynne.

The record shows Petty exploring his musical roots with nods to his influences. It included a Byrds cover (“I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better”) and a nod to Del Shannon in “Runnin’ Down a Dream”. Other songs, such as “Free Fallin'”, show Petty addressing nostalgia on his rise to fame. “A Mind With a Heart of Its Own” uses a Bo Diddley-style rhythm, while “The Apartment Song” features an instrumental break with a beat reminiscent of Buddy Holly’s “Peggy Sue”.

It’s sound was heavily influenced by Jeff Lynne resulting in a cleaner and glossier version of the Heartbreakers’ roots rock from previous albums. Lynne incorporated layers of keyboards and backing vocals, giving it a Beatlesque feel.

The album became a commercial and critical success peaking at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and being certified five times platinum in the United States and six times platinum in Canada. Five singles were released from the album. “I Won’t Back Down”, “Free Fallin’” and “Runnin’ Down A Dream” topped the U.S. Mainstream Rock charts.

Critics praised the record comparing it to The Heartbreakers’ “Damn The Torpedoes”. One called it a “minor masterpiece with no weak tracks”. Rolling Stone compared the album favorably to the Traveling Wilburys’ debut saying it had the “same restless charm”. Another review described the album as “another rewarding, low-key side project for Petty”, giving it three-and-a-half stars out of five. A later Rolling Stone biographer claimed “Full Moon Fever” was a “masterful solo album”. It was ranked number 92 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 best albums of the 1980s.

Although all but drummer Stan Lynch contributed to the record, the project stirred some controversy among members of the Heartbreakers. Benmont Tench and Howie Epstein initially were not happy about playing the Full Moon Fever songs live during Heartbreakers concerts. Lynch hated playing them right up until his departure from the band, saying it made him feel like he was in a cover band.

Mission Re-Listen-Manifesto by Roxy Music

Mission: Re-Listen is PodCloud1’s Prime Rewind!

Each month we’re re-listening to a classic album that was released that same month.

Roxy Music’s Manifesto (released in March of 1979)

After six years of successful albums and concerts, Roxy Music broke up following the 1976 Siren tour. Although a live album documenting the tour came out later that year, it appeared that this was the end of the line for this adventurous and influential art/glam/prog rock band. Each of the members went their separate ways.

So excitement ran high when they announced to the press in November of 1978 that they would be working together for the first time in three years. The core group of Bryan Ferry, Phil Manzanera, Andy McKay and Paul Thompson would be supported by Paul Carrack (Ace, Squeeze) on keyboards and Gary Tibbs & Alan Spenner sharing bass duties. They recorded during January and February of 1979 at both Basing Street and Ridge Farm Studios.

Enjoy this classic album re-listen of Roxy Music’s Manifesto.

2. Trash
3. Angel Eyes
4. Still Falls The Rain

10. Spin Me Round

(click player for Roxy Music-Manifesto)

Manifesto is the sixth studio album by the English rock band Roxy Music. It was released in March of 1979 in the UK, Europe and the US. Following an almost four-year recording hiatus, it was Roxy Music’s first studio album since 1975’s Siren.
The idea was to embrace the energy of the new wave and disco movements through the filter of the Roxy Music sound. The album was considered a change of pace trading the art rock influences and instrumental interludes for concise pop songs.

The first single was “Trash”, which barely made the UK top 40. However, the second single, the disco-tinged “Dance Away”, returned the band to the top 3 becoming one of their biggest hits. It was also the 9th best-selling single in the UK in 1979. The song was also released in a 12″ extended version. After the song became a hit, the second pressings of the album substituted the original version of “Dance Away” with its single remix.

The third single was a re-recorded version of “Angel Eyes”, which was far more electronic and “disco” in nature than the power-pop album version. An extended 12″ mix was also released. The single also made the UK Top 5 in August. The album itself peaked at no. 7 in the UK.

Later on, the LP version of “Angel Eyes” was also replaced by the more popular re-recorded version released as a single. The original CD versions of the album used the revised track list, until the LP version of “Angel Eyes” was restored in the 1999 remaster. Manifesto was finally released on CD in its original version on “The Complete Studio Recordings” box set in 2012.

On the original vinyl release, side one was labelled “East Side” and side two was labelled “West Side”.

The cover design depicted a riotous Studio 54 party of beautiful people played by a variety of mannequins-lifeless but synthetically beautiful showroom dummies. This concept was also used for the covers of the singles from the album. The picture disc version of the album featured a version of the design in which the mannequins are naked. The cover’s typography, as well as the album’s title, were inspired by the first edition of the avant-garde literary magazine “Blast” from 1913.

It was created by Bryan Ferry with fashion designer Antony Price. Price’s super-futuristic King’s Road boutique “Plaza” is name-checked in the song “Trash”. Ferry wanted to make a statement about the seductive beauty of artifice and the emotional void at the heart of the high life.

Manifesto was positively received by critics but not as well regarded as previous Roxy Music albums. Critic Robert Christgau wrote: “This isn’t Roxy at its most innovative, just its most listenable – the entire “West Side” sustains the relaxed, pleasantly funky groove it intends, and the difficulties of the “East Side” are hardly prohibitive.

The album was ranked 30th in the Village Voice’s Pazz & Jop critics poll of the best albums of 1979. The 1992 Rolling Stone Album Guide gave the album four stars and says “the regrouped Roxy seems better for the rest: deftly blending fresh rhythms into its signature sound, shortening the musical passages and concentrating more on song craft.”

PodCloud1 is officially back with the return of the PeeperD Pod. Although it’s only been a few weeks, there’s been a lot of changes at the “one for great music”. Join host PeeperD in an expanded format with a music mix celebrating this exciting transformation. New songs from The Decemberists, Van Morrison and The Revivalists. Featuring music from Foo Fighters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Sheryl Crow, Aerosmith, Talking Heads, Hall & Oates, Chicago and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes. A little-known gem from Aretha Franklin fills out the mix. Background sounds from the new release by The New Mastersounds. Plus PeeperD brings you up to date with all of the exciting changes at the all-new PodCloud1.

It’s great to be back…and this is only the beginning!
