Product Description

Product Description

Eight-track mini-album features the album version of 'My Iron Lung' and seven non-album tracks lifted from various singles off of their first two albums, 'The Trickster', 'Lewis (Mistreated)', 'Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong', 'Permanent Daylight', 'Lozenge Of Love', 'You Never Wash Up After Yourself' and an acoustic version of their very first hit, 1993's 'Creep'.


When exactly Radiohead transformed themselves from an average alterna-rock band into an avant-garde juggernaut is difficult to pinpoint, but in terms of recording, they took the great leap forward somewhere around the time of their second album, The Bends. While their debut, Pablo Honey, had a few sharp hooks, there was nothing to predict the avalanche of ideas that made The Bends one of the important albums of the 1990s. This EP (which is actually longer than some bands' full albums) doesn't clarify things a bit. The acoustic version of "Creep" that ends My Iron Lung is a sensitive read, but it doesn't explain the structural leap of the title track, which sounds as if the band had relearned how to play their instruments. Most of the remaining tunes are short, quirky numbers that point up Thom Yorke's penchant for melancholy melodies. Those who treasure the art rock of OK Computer or Kid A may find these plaintive pleas for love and understanding almost too simple. --Rob O'Connor

I gave this item 4-stars, not because there was a lacking in the quality of the songs presented on the EP, but because it is not a worthwhile purchase considering that there is another similar EP out there with 4 more tracks on it. The Australian release of the 'My Iron Lung EP' includes all of the same tracks of this one, and more, including:
The Trickster (Track 2)
Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong (Track 4)
Lozenge of Love (Track 6)
Creep (Acoustic - Track 8)
Notice how it says 'CD 2' on the cover. This is obviously not the full-length version, but only the second half of a 2-part series. The full-length version (the Australian release) is basically a combination of CD 1 and CD 2.

Although Radiohead's monster single, Creep, was tearing up the charts in the early 1990s, the album from which it was taken, PABLO HONEY, was an average album from what appeared to be an average band. Like so many other bands with a couple of hits under their belt, Radiohead could have released a couple more mediocre records in the span of a few years and generally fade from public consciousness. Hootie and the Blowfish and Seven Mary 3 are good examples of this phenomena. I actually wrote Radiohead off and never bothered to listen to any of the followups until about 2001, when I realised there was so much more to Radiohead than just "Creep" (one of my least favorite songs by them, incidentally).

Radiohead, however, had a different career destiny in mind, and pulled it off wonderfully. Rather than continue in the PABLO HONEY vein, Radiohead managed to record a series of phenomenal records not only noted for their musical instinct, but just wonderful, amazing music. Judging from PABLO HONEY, you would have no possible inkling they would go on to record an album of such high calibre like THE BENDS, let alone OK COMPUTER. OK COMPUTER is in a whole other universe in terms of quality, critical acclaim, and rabid fan adulation compared to PABLO HONEY. Radiohead wonderfully reinvented themselves, and have become one of the most consistently interesting, thought provoking bands around these days.

So how do they do it? My personal belief is it all starts right here with this EP released in 1994, MY IRON LUNG.

I absolutly love Radiohead, though I do admit that their sloppy grunge-rock from pablo honey and some of the "lesser" tracks on "The Bends" irritate me. That said, this is an amazing single, but it remains: a single. If you keep that in mind, you'll be amazed how good this is. If you were to look at it like a normal Radiohead release, you'll probably be a bit disappointed. The songs are good, but not very memorable. It's a fun little romp if you can find it for 7 bucks, but your wasting your money if you pay full price. The version of "creep" is really interesting, though it is rather spoiled with an almost comedic radio-edit at the beginning of the track. If you can get passed that, it's the best version of this out there. The songs in the middle between "creep" and "my iron lung" all tend to blend together into a distorted free-for-all. They're not bad tracks, certainly, but I fail to understand the high admiration most people have for some of the songs. Its good to note that their usual producer Nigel Goodrich only produced 2 of the songs on the single. This CD shows just what an important asset he is to the band. Finally, the "middle section" of this single, which borders or album status, have a very "b-sides" feel to me. They're good, yes, but they're still b-sides, and there is a good reason they were not put on any real albums.

Arguably, Radiohead has had the greatest evolution of any band in music history. They went from Alternative Ordinaries to something much more. It is hard to pinpoint when this change began, but many think there is evidence in this album. Indeed, this collection of B-sides from The Bends and possibly OK Computer represents something greater than the average alternative rock album. From the opening track, you are mesmerised by Radiohead's unique style and performance. "My Iron Lung" is the CD's opener (for obvious reasons) and features a great melody, interesting vocals, and an amazing guitar riff. You haven't heard a rock song until you've heard this one. "The Trickster" is a moderately paced interesting little tune with a great build up to the chorus especially. "Lewis [mistreated]" is a great story about a bad day with some quick guitar/drum work and a simple but elegant melody. "Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong" is perhaps Radiohead's best attempt at a true love song. Though it doesn't necessarily serve the purpose of a mainstream love song well (sounds too "spacey"), it is beautiful in its own unique sense. "Permanent Daylight" is a hauntingly intense, short little song. It features some simple chord progressions, but it sounds so amazing when heard in that classic Radiohead style with electric guitars special sound mixing effects that you will not care it's only two minutes long. Two minutes of music nirvana. "Lozenge of Love" and "You Never Wash Up After Yourself" are short, beautiful songs with especially good accompaniment and vocals. Finally, the CD closes with a great acoustic version of "Creep".Read more ›
