    I hate my computer

    Prince- the two or three Crepes I’ve heard have satisfied my palate quite nicely

    Frankie- sorry to hear that, hope this year is much better

    Selector- haven’t been there, may have heard of it. I live more upstate in LA

    anyone- When going to NOLA, I highly recommend hitting up The Bulldog bar/grill on Magazine. It’s closer to the Garden District (maybe in it), 50+ beers on tap, over 100 in bottles, good bar food (wings, etc). That’s assuming it’s still there, same mojo, etc

    Lycan- you are far too kind, my friend. It’s the 21st, right? Even though I’ll be off, that’s actually a payday, so this could work out. I’ve got to see how the first couple of weeks go. And like I said, originals are, of course, where IT’s at! Again, you’re far too kind

    THIS place is also where IT’s at

    Had the extreme chance of seeing that 2006 summer tour Radiohead did in small theaters in a few cities way before the release of In Rainbows where they tested all these new songs (the In Rainbows songs) on their public for the first time. I thought it was the perfect way to discover them, live… such a great evening! Black Keys opened…

    it is a thursday though @chef

    not sure if you work friday

  4. Lycanthropist Says:

    my wife and I discovered the in rainbows songs at the Bonnaroo set..

    as far as I am concerned Radiohead’s Bonnaroo = Phish’s Big Cypress

  5. chefbradford Says:

    re:Lycan’s Radiohead/Floyd remark

    I agree, there’s definitely some Pink in there. In modern British psych-music, it’s pretty much impossible (I would think) for there not to be. But, there’s always a but, I went through a Floyd phase (it lasted something like 15+ years), these day’s I’d rather spin a meaty Radiohead album than a bloated Floyd album

    (winces, waiting for the short sharp shower of shit)

    Still love the Floyd, but right now in time, I’ll take R-Head

  6. Frankie Says:

    Thanks chef, i appreciate it! This year is gonna rock! 🙂

  7. Prince Nabby Says:

    OK, I’m outa here for the night. See y’all soon!

    “Say what you will, dude; at least national socialism was an ethos . . .”

  8. chefbradford Says:

    Lycan- starting Monday or Tuesday, I’m off til the beginning of February. My work year is over! Well, for most of a month, anyway 🙂

    and another 🙂

    A friend that saw Radiohead at Bonnaroo was pretty much speechless when I asked her about it. Which is a good thing

  9. Selector J Says:

    Easy Star def did a pretty good job with the OK Computer. Not quite as perfect as Dub Side but a solid effort with some ridiculous material to try to reggae-fy.

    my one grievance on Radiodread:

    I was pissed that they used Citizen Cope, though. I was really hoping for a gravelly-voiced Jamaican singer to really growl that “this is what you get… when you mess with us” part.

    I even wrote a letter to the label basically asking, ‘what the crap was that?’ (about using Citizen Cope). I kinda went overboard. i had this whole list of living JA singers that made no money during their heyday (producers were the only people getting rich back then) and could have used some exposure. (disclaimer: I don’t dislike Citizen Cope. I was just pissed they were using someone from (way!) outside reggae culture.)

    they actually responded and were pretty chill about it.

    I have a lot of respect for radiohead, they are a great band that has a lot of good music. It’s just personal preference, kinda like how I don’t like Bono for trying too hard to save the world

  11. Lycanthropist Says:

    im totally with you chef

  12. Frankie Says:

    Same tour Lycan… loved the broken mirrors backdrop with the camera in Yorke’s eye when he sang “You and Whose Army”… i have a fan made DVD of that Radiohead at Bonnaroo but i don’t remember if it’s good… i remember it was pretty shaky but had different angles…

  13. chefbradford Says:

    Hey, all this talk about Lebowski today.

    John Goodman was in town filming a terrible made-for-tv holiday movie back in summer 06. His hotel was literally right behind the restaurant, he came in almost every night for a couple of weeks. He was kind and patient enough to deal with tons of people seeking pics and autographs, and I have one of a couple of friends and myself (oddly/synchronistially[?] enough wearing the same Dr Seuss Pharewell Boys Coventry t-shirt that I’m wearing right now) cheezin with the big guy

    He likes steaks, hamburgers, red meat.

    He drinks Budweiser, with a glass (not a shot) of Jack Daniel’s

    my kind of drinker, that

  14. Frankie Says:

    That backdrop but without the annoying screaming people…

  15. chefbradford Says:

    Selector- I agree that Dub Side was better, for sure. I don’t have an opinion on the C Cope selection, I’m nowhere near as knowledgeable on that score as you are. I enjoyed his vocals. I have heard his style referred to as swamp reggae before.

    Now that I think about it, he does clash, in a way, with some of the album. But then again, some of the album itself is about clash.

    Haven’t listened in awhile, what did he sing? Was it “No Surprises”?

  16. Selector J Says:

    chef: I’ll have to check that Bulldog spot next time I’m in NOLA. My bro-in-law lives in the Garden district. I’m sure he’d know how to get there. shoot. he’s probably there right now.

    Snake-N-Jake’s is an almighty dive bar. Business starts to pick up after other bars close. very unassuming exterior. I think it may be a converted garage or something. it has no parking lot. it’s in the middle of some neighborhood. definitely THE best spot to hit for a few drinks after a night of drinking in the city.

    My plan was to be on the couch tonight…instead I’m at a theater in Modesto recording my friend’s bluegrass band. Random!

  18. Mitch Says:

    frankie,
    i had to leave that radiohead concert at bonnaroo and go wandering. the drugs were leading the way that night. still could hear everything perfectly and was loving it! chris on the other hand…. he was not chris, he was someone else and kept trying to light the grass around him on fire. he had a circle that people had cleared around him. finally find him after the show when he came to. he had an interesting journey that night. great concert tho, first time i heard some of those in rainbows songs.

  19. chefbradford Says:

    Selector- I’ll try and remember to ask my NOLA friends about SnJ, sounds fantastic. It’s been a long time, like between 5 or 10 years, since I’ve been to the Bulldog, so it could conceivably be gone. But it seemed pretty established, like dug in, every time I went, so I’d imagine SOME incarnation is still kickin.

    When I was a kid, and I mean from like age 0 to about 14 or 16, we went to Louisiana, Baton Rouge and NO, every summer for vacation (grew up in Tennessee, family in LA). Never realized NO was kind of a big deal in some ways until I went to college. Saw a lot of great bands and performers and performances over the years without even realizing what was going on

    Perspective changes everything

  20. Frankie Says:

    🙂 Chris is a space traveler… This summer’s setbreak Mango experience must have been something as well… 🙂

  21. chefbradford Says:

    Damn. My addiction to this site makes it extremely difficult for me to do the things I normally do when I’m home. Read. Watch a movie/TV. Play PS3. Sleep.

    Still, it’s probably the healthiest addiction I’ve ever had 🙂

  22. chefbradford Says:

    Huh? No short sharp shower of shit? Wow, I’m surprised.

  23. Lycanthropist Says:

    the radiohead haters arent with us right now Chef

    its mostly radiohead lovers on right now

  24. chefbradford Says:

    fromthetub- if you’re still around, I haven’t used it yet, but I DL’d that app

  25. Frankie Says:

    No i’m on the same boat as you chef. Although i gotta spin (on vinyl) Meddle at least once a month to keep sane…

    This year, i haven’t listened to neither much since Phish came back… i listened to A LOT of Phish last year, it’s no joke! Phish 90%/Everything else 10%

    It’s Mr. Miner’s fault with his awesome picks and mixes and show recs… 😉
