Harry Patch (In Memory Of)

"i am the only one that got through
the others died where ever they fell
it was an ambush
they came up from all sides
give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves
i've seen devils coming up from the ground
i've seen hell upon this earth
the next will be chemical but they will never learn"


Recently the last remaining UK veteran of the 1st world war Harry Patch died at the age of 111.
I had heard a very emotional interview with him a few years ago on the Today program on Radio4.
The way he talked about war had a profound effect on me.
It became the inspiration for a song that we happened to record a few weeks before his death.
It was done live in an abbey. The strings were arranged by Jonny.
I very much hope the song does justice to his memory as the last survivor.

It would be very easy for our generation to forget the true horror of war, without the likes of Harry to remind us.
I hope we do not forget.

As Harry himself said
"Irrespective of the uniforms we wore, we were all victims".

This morning the Today program played the song for the first time and now it is available to download from our website.

Please click here to download.

The proceeds of this song will go to the British Legion.

To peace and understanding.
Thom

Yeah I got this a couple days ago. Pretty cool, depressing. That much use of strings is unusual for Radiohead. This song doesn't seem like it would fit any album if there's - Amnesiac or Kid A if any.

It reminds me of the first rendition of Weird Fishes, then just known by its alternate title Arpeggi.

Anyone else ever listen to "Jaydiohead", I really enjoyed this mash-up and it's follow-up...

Jaydiohead is one of the better mash-up albums out there if you like that sort of thing. Much better than that DJ Moondance DMB/Jay-z "Crash Album"

no more Radiohead albums according to Thom Yorke. Only single releases and EP's from here on out as per this article.

If this is true, I'd think that radiohead.com would have it first.

Why does this thread have a one star rating? The subject being what it is makes it a 4 minimum.

Too bad they haven't played it since 1997.
