The Big Mates discuss DAWs, doors, snakes and ladders, and Hail to the Thief by Radiohead.
Adam, Steve, and Lucas continue their deep dive into the career and discography of Radiohead by tackling their sixth album Hail to the Thief. They talk about the writing and recording process, the context surrounding the songs, and offer up analysis, opinions, and thoughts from three differing perspectives on music, from being deeply into analysis and music, to not caring for art or critique, and everything in between.
They touch on Radiohead's 2002 tour, the Hollywood sessions, sequencing the songs, and how they promoted the album.

Our next episode is out on Monday October 17th and will continue the deep-dive into Hail to the Thief.
