I just looked up the venue, wow what a beautiful place to see a show! That pit really is tiny, looks like you're right on the money with your estimate of its capacity. Honestly that could either make queuing tougher or easier; tougher because people may be more competitive about getting a spot, easier because there's fewer people to deal with. Impossible to tell which way it'll go until you're there.

I feel you on not being very social, I've got anxiety issues so being around strangers is really difficult sometimes. Best I can suggest is to keep in mind that people are generally good, and that everyone you see is there for the same reason you are. Having that common ground can make it easier to chat with folks. I'm not sure what Thom/Radiohead fans are like IRL (I've somehow missed RH every time they've toured since becoming a fan in 2005) but if this sub is any indication it seems like they're a goofy, nice bunch. Even if you don't wind up befriending anyone people will probably still look out for you so long as you're polite & do the same for them, it's part of the comraderie that naturally forms when you queue together all day.

Bathroom runs are usually no big deal, I just ask the people around me to watch my spot & it almost always works out even if I haven't talked to them. If the queue is unstable (people drifting around a lot, walking up from the back etc) I'll leave behind my snack & water bag as a physical marker for my spot too. No one will mess with it, if only because there are other people around.

Couple other things I forgot that're worth keeping in mind:

  • Don't bring a bag if you can avoid it. I usually bring a couple bottles of water & some snacks in a disposable plastic bag so I can just throw out whatever's left when doors open. Everyone's gonna get patted down after their tickets are scanned but having a bag that needs to be searched will slow you down.

  • If you're not already planning to, wear ear plugs. I wish I had done this when I started going to shows 15 years ago, not using ear plugs at every show has noticeably messed up my hearing. Protection aside a good set of ear plugs can also make the music sound clearer, especially if you're up front. The cheap foam ones are OK but I'd recommend something like these, they're not too expensive & are a good deal more effective, plus they're more comfortable & you can use them for years.

  • Lastly, try not to leave the queue about an hour before doors open. It doesn't always happen but that's when people are most likely to get antsy & push up or otherwise undermine the established queue. Also venues will sometimes relocate the queue which can shuffle people around, or on very rare occasions they may even open the doors a little early. After a full day of queuing last minute hiccups can be stressful but it's important to stay positive & not get discouraged. Even if you wind up further back in the line you still have a good chance of getting to the front so long as you bee-line it to the stage.

Oh sure, look it up. If I were smart, that's what I would have done. ;-)

To save other people the trouble:

Pablo Honey

The Bends

OK Computer

Kid A - due to the lack of singles (and B-sides), this might actually be the worst collector's edition, which is amazing because this album is awesome awesome.


Hail To The Thief

In Rainbows

I guess it almost comes down to which album you like the best. I'm a big fan of The Bends, so I enjoy that pop driven second disc more than somebody who tuned in after Kid A (for example). What do you like, OP?

u/roadghost24 · 3 pointsr/radiohead

You mean this one? I for myself actually think that's the best Radiohead poster out there. Sadly the band doesn't have that many great posters (or merch in general) to begin with, but this In Rainbows one is also pretty cool imo. You like Atoms For Peace too? They have this poster in their store. Outside of that, I don't really know where to get posters that are worth something.

u/present_tense_ · 3 pointsr/radiohead

Just don't get anything with all in one built in speakers.

I Suggest an Audio Technica LP60

Or if it is in you budget go for the Audio Technica LP120

I started off with an Audio Technica LP120 and still use it to this day. It is about two years old now with no problems what so ever.
The thing to note is that you will need speakers to add to it with to start off with i just used computer speakers until I upgraded my speakers last year. But i reckon the LP60 would be great as well, audio technica are imo a great brand.

Maybe this could be of assistance

Then the fun addicting part truly begins once you have a turntable to spin all you favourite albums. Plus even though it is gimmicky and less superior to black vinyl (according to people but i see no major difference) there are coloured vinyl which range from all difference fantastic colours from pressing to pressing. They look so awesome!

Example here (from one of my fav bands King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard's album 12 Bar Bruise):

Anyway enjoy Hail to the Thief when you spin as it is my fav album ever and first record I ever owned : ) !!!

Check out this page from musicnotes which allows you to view the first page for free!

I can also recommend this book of sheet music dedicated to Kid A and [this one] ( of Radiohead's greatest hits (although surprisingly Kid A isn't in the latter).

u/MaBeSch · 2 pointsr/radiohead

Long story short: buy this one. I own it and it's fantastic. The selection of songs is amazing. Highlights like Last Flowers to the Hospital and How I Made My Millions are included. Chords are accurate, as well as the keys. Especially if you're an experienced player, you'll have lots of fun with it.

u/scarycamel · 3 pointsr/radiohead

I was sad the day I learned that it was taken down. There's a lower quality version here. If you're willing to buy it, it's on the special edition three disc set. I'll probably pick it up someday. I'm sure there are some torrents out there, but I'm not the guy to ask. I would love to find a good quality video of this. It's easily one of my favorite performances.

u/Cban51 · 6 pointsr/radiohead

This may not be what you're looking for, but my girlfriend gave me this for my birthday, and I love it. I've learned almost every song in there and they sound great. For anyone interested, it contains these songs:

  • Creep
  • Everything in Its Right Place
  • Exit Music (For a Film)
  • Fake Plastic Trees
  • Fog Again
  • High and Dry
  • How I Made My Millions
  • I Want None of This
  • Karma Police
  • Knives Out
  • Last Flowers to the Hospital
  • Life in a Glasshouse
  • Like Spinning Plates
  • Lucky
  • Motion Picture Soundtrack
  • My Iron Lung
  • No Surprises
  • Paranoid Android
  • A Punch Up at a Wedding
  • Pyramid Song
  • Sail to the Moon
  • Sit Down. Stand Up.
  • Street Spirit (Fade Out)
  • Subterranean Homesick Alien
  • Videotape
  • We Suck Young Blood
  • A Wolf at the Door.

    Before I got this though, I would just Google sheet music of the song I wanted and usually could find the first page or so of it, and work the rest out by ear.
u/kevinshark · 2 pointsr/radiohead

This looks awesome. I love this kind of extended criticism. Though they don't have very good reviews I thought the 33 1/3rd's dedicated to Kid A and OK Computer were at least worthwhile - you'd probably find them interesting if you haven't read them already.

u/trashrabbits · 7 pointsr/radiohead

I got a pretty cool poster in my game room that's reminiscent of the Kid A/Amnesiac Tour and I got it for under $10 on Amazon. It looks like this.

EDIT: Here's the link for it. It's 24in x 36in and it looks great. I'd suggest framing it though.

u/wowbrow · 12 pointsr/radiohead

No. He's a fucking amazing artist.

He's a brilliant writer as well. I cannot recommend "household worms" enough. its a collection of short stories including "sell your house and buy gold." All very dark, all very awesome.

u/seluropnek · 5 pointsr/radiohead

Not remotely special. It's still available at the official store and you can get it for dirt cheap on Amazon.. It does seem to have gone up a bit in value a bit over the past year or so though. That said, it's still a great, really cool little book with beautiful artwork.

For a long time the version of Kid A with the hidden booklet was considerably harder to find.

u/I_ncident · 1 pointr/radiohead

Apparently this comes with stickers to fit onto a normal jewel case.
> It also has two pages of stickers to fit on a regular jewel case, which is a nice addition as cardboard cases are easy to damage.

u/HeadphoneWarrior · 2 pointsr/radiohead

Embarrassing Edit: Whoops. I was talking about this book. :|

First half was pretty good. Gets into 'the philosophy of art' mode far too easily for me.

But it was quite fun to find out that I agree and disagree with several interpretations of other fans about songs and albums.

I'd say pick it up.

u/LifvetsUsurpator · 3 pointsr/radiohead

Haven't read it but this looks pretty interesting

u/YouUsedtobeAlright · 1 pointr/radiohead

Here's a cheaper but still pretty expensive listing for the second CD. Given that you can more easily find the discbox for around the same price, I'd still suggest that way of getting the second disc.

u/nicetryLaoChe · 1 pointr/radiohead

that's a good move! I have been working on accurate sheet music for anything I love and can't find...still working on making them correct. PM me and I can help out. These books are the best so far:

The '28 Biggest Hits' is a treasure trove, though some mistakes. AMSP is golden. Kid A is a cheap publisher but accurate.

u/AveZombier · -8 pointsr/radiohead

Not to be a downer but all but 3 tracks of this have been released before with the OK Computer deluxe edition which also came with a dvd.
Again, not that I'm throwing shade on this release, I mean... I have already bought the vinyl. lol.

u/Thisisyoureading · 1 pointr/radiohead

This was in my old university library. Also one of the lecturers wrote a small 'dissertation' book on OK Computer.

To be fair a lot of people misunderstood the book, but it isn't an all out and out great read.

u/4-1-3-2 · 3 pointsr/radiohead

Quite a few books have been referenced in interviews - here's some of the ones I think I remember. They're all very good books despite any association with Radiohead, by the way.

How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

The Crying of Lot 49 (also V. and Gravity's Rainbow)


The Hitchhiker Guide

The Divine Comedy

No Logo

Brave New World

Cat's Cradle

Stanley Donwood

u/milpooooooool · 1 pointr/radiohead

I keep Radiohead and Philosophy in my bathroom. It's part of a series of pop culture "philosophy" books, and it's really just a collection of articles relating their music to philosophical ideas. It covers a little bit of everything through In Rainbows. Some articles are definitely better than others, not really a book to read from front to back in one sitting.

Edit: Here's the entire list of those pop culture philosophy books if anyone is interested. Seems to be one for everything.

u/AuntieKuma · 2 pointsr/radiohead

I was just about to recommend this as well!

I don't understand why it's so poorly reviewed; I really enjoyed it!

u/NiceAndCivilized · 1 pointr/radiohead

Easiest to use out-of-the-box that will actually sound decent? U-Turn Orbit:

Less expensive, simpler? (this one has a built-in preamp so that you can plug it in to any stereo system, regardless of whether or not your stereo system has a specific 'PHONO' input)


Also, definitely don't want to rain on your parade! Just don't want you to damage your records. Also, there will be an ENORMOUS difference in sound quality with a decent turntable. It will make you want to buy more records :)

u/integrate-this · 6 pointsr/radiohead

My friend showed me this soon after I got my first Radiohead album. It was my introduction to so many of their songs!

I've always found that covers of Radiohead in different genres are really illuminating. Stripping away all of that Radiohead weirdness, you're always left with a brilliant melody. See also John Mayer's cover of Kid A and OK Computer lullabies.

u/cryptopian · 3 pointsr/radiohead

I have the Radiohead Songbook. Interestingly, as well as being made up of classic hits (Creep, Paranoid Android), it also contains more obscure pieces that were written for piano (How I Made my Millions, I Want None of This).

Some of the non-piano pieces sound good, like Karma Police and Sail to the Moon. My Iron Lung transcribes surprisingly well. Some really don't work, like Creep and Subterranean Homesick Alien (though the bassline given by the book implies completely the wrong rhythm).

u/HellaToasted · 2 pointsr/radiohead

I knew that ok computer poster looked familiar, someone on here posted in a while back with a link to amazon! Looks like it's the right one

u/workythehand · 3 pointsr/radiohead

$100 and you could live your dream. Just get a stand alone speaker set up and you're set.

It's not the most amazing piece of equipment in the audio world, but it gets the job done. If you're spending $50 on a CD, you could splurge $100 for a competent turntable. Treat yo'self.

u/warminthestarlight · 1 pointr/radiohead

Check out the Rockabye Baby! album. They did music-boxy arrangements of some of their classics. Love the No Surprises one especially.

u/xEstie · 1 pointr/radiohead

Amazon! I have a framed one on my wall as well :)

u/EverythingIThink · 2 pointsr/radiohead

There's some decent books out there, I know this one has some interesting stuff. I think there's a few on books written about Ok Computer specifically even

u/Petter05 · 1 pointr/radiohead

In fact I was thinking on that too but found this one of the same brand a lot cheaper:

Audio Technica AT-LP60BK Fully Automatic Belt-Drive Stereo Turntable, Black

The downside it's the lack of support of 78 RPM but if radiohead vinyls are 45 or 33 it would work.

Thanks for the recommendation!

u/seamusthehound · 1 pointr/radiohead

Bought this one. Wish I'd bought that one.
Or any other.

u/gingertastic95 · 9 pointsr/radiohead

I really wish Radiohead would reissue the double album version of In Rainbows because I missed the boat the first time around and have trouble justifying the current price of the album. It's a shame because it really makes an already great album even better.

u/swordstool · 1 pointr/radiohead

This is one of the better 'cheaper' ones: link

u/Tom_Anks · 2 pointsr/radiohead

This one?

It's alright, an interesting read but a lot of time the author just seems to be saying things for the sake of saying things, their music really doesn't have to go incredibly deep. Parts where he talks about the deeper meaning of Creep for a chapter is pretty painful to read.

u/stopthecrowd · 1 pointr/radiohead

TL;DR - I don't know

I have this one and it is great but definitely too hard for me (i am a beginner player). Though that just means things will take time (and I am currently putting a Coldplay and Elliott Smith song ahead of finally learning PS, MPS, or Fog(Again).

You've got Morning Bell on yours though.. I am jealous!

u/detrw5 · 1 pointr/radiohead

I bought one on amazon a while ago - it's like $4+shipping (no prime :( )

u/ledraps · 5 pointsr/radiohead

I was considering buying this, but I ended up getting the Special Collector's Edition because it included the B-sides and a DVD.

It still has all the artwork and the book card inside, but I dislike not having the book form.

I wish the Book form came with the B-side + DVD

u/matlal · 4 pointsr/radiohead

I've got a CD with the outtakes and 7 live versions. Bought it for 15$, it comes in a little box with a DVD!

It's now 99$ on Amazon

u/ink_spot_masterpiece · 1 pointr/radiohead


I bought this when the album released, still have it in a box somewhere.

u/bottleclinger · 1 pointr/radiohead

From memory I think this book was quite interesting... and had a lot of technical information in it

u/niftium · 2 pointsr/radiohead

I've seen some dodgy shit like this (, and Wikipedia says 2CD editions exist separate from the discbox, but I've never seen them.
