Ironically, though (and this is what I mean by muddled politics, which didn't just suddenly crop up in Phantom Power, but rather got harder to overlook), there is a soundbite and a bit of scrolling text which always plays during "The Man Don't Give a Fuck." It says...

All Governments Are Liars and Murderers

So, it seems that they agree with you!

I thought your reply was perfect, IYS. I didn't take any offense. This isn't FYM. This is just one of those subjects that tweaks my nipples. I blame John Lennon.

That scrolling quote is from the late comedian Bill Hicks, who also had The Bends dedicated to him by Radiohead.

Um. WTF? How is it possible that I never listened to these guys before? Been listening to Rings Around the World (An expended edition of the album bought from itunes) and it's fantastic. Fuck.

'Tis but the tip of the iceberg. You have no idea what you've started, by getting into that record. I'm considering getting "SFAOK" tattooed on my knuckles.

Or at least paying for a license plate which reads "SFA OK." Whatever, really.

Oh, and the Tradewinds EP is stellar, yeah. There are some ballin'-ass songs on that mo'fucker, for sure. "Happiness is a Worn Pun" (the Sasquatch's vocals are beyond priceless), "Edam Anchorman," "Gypsy Space Muffin"...all them shits is fucking brilliant, and so're the other tracks. I adore "All The Shit U Do."

I'm just sort of stunned that I'd never even heard of them as of a few months ago.

There was a time when they held great sway over the UK charts, but those times're sadly long-gone. In the States, it was a lot easier to miss them.

Here's a sobering, perspective-granting fact: Since the Furries moved to Rough Trade, you can no longer buy any of their music in, say, Best Buy (unless the store has old records lying about which haven't yet been sold; I see Songbook, Vol. I, from time to time, but that's all). You can, however, stroll into nine of out ten Best Buys and buy the new album from...Japanese home-recorded, toy piano-playing artist Shugo Tokumaru. And in the Rock/Pop section, no less! It's insanity. Props to Tokumaru, too. Dude knows what's going on.

It is ridiculous that they haven't broken here, right? They write a pop song as brilliantly as Blur or Oasis ever did, and can experiment as much as Radiohead without losing the plot.

Also, I always listen to the Rings EP because in my opinion Edam Anchorman segueing into All The Shit U Do is just like the best ending, ever.

I think he should work his way forward now all the way to Hey Venus, then go back.

Hey Venus deserves a shot, but why listen to Phantom Power and Love Kraft without hearing Radiator, Guerrilla, and Mwng first?

If I hear something I really like from a band, I try to get something right before or after, for context.

If you think he should try Guerilla, that makes sense, but it's a lot weirder. I say finish out the more accessible, pop stuff before diving into the more challenging material.

For the record, I like Phantom Power and Love Kraft a lot better than Radiator.

OK, that's what I thought you were going for.

But it still feels a bit like telling someone to listen to ATYCLB and HTDAAB before The Unforgettable and Zooropa to me.

I agree with Laz, regarding context, but I think that Love Kraft is, by far, their most challenging album. It's all subjective, I guess, but I really believe that. Structure's a lot more fluid, things are very gauzy, and the record tries to cruise by on mood, I think, rather than melody. I'm not saying that there aren't melodies, of course, but rather than they take a backseat, relative to the typical SFA record. "Lazer Beam" and "The Horn" are pretty immediate, though...
