Friday! Radiohead- No Surprises

Vodpod videos no longer available.

A different reading of this song…a highly sensitised microphone, hooked up to a massive amp & speaker. It can pick up the slightest noise, even from far away and every signal can cause catastrophic feedback that destroys the entire system. So to survive it must be wrapped in protective, dampening insulation, making it not much use for its intended purpose but it means it can function to a limited degree. Or it can be switched off.

    It would be hard not to.

    Would the sensitised microphone be a country or a town microphone?

  4. RickB Says:

    a metaphorical one.

  5. RickB Says:

    Well of course one can go with the reliable and rugged Shure SM58, or dally with the newer wonders of a Sennheiser (E 935 gets my vote) or Behringer (AKG hmmm maybe) but the metaphorical microphone picks up the best signified concept.

    How about a signified monkey kinda concept?
