Re: your post about Israel. While I don't agree on the fact that their music isn't political, the rest I agree on pretty much. I mean them cancelling a show isn't gonna change the government instantaneously like people are talking like "if they cancel the show Israel will be all better' like lmao. Also I feel like if they end up doing the show, they'll have to go there and maybe they'll learn about everything going on as people who seem like they want to be educated I feel like them travelling+
“+there will help them get educated on the issues going on there. Thanks for reading.”
thanks for sending. i actually was intending to detail why i do not see radiohead’s music as being strictly political, but i might just pick my battles and leave that one. idk i love talking abt stuff. there are political themes, but i don’t see that as being the driving force behind their music at all. radiohead as individuals are political, but i don’t believe they have knowingly created this image of a “political band” people are seeing. regardless, they’re not obligated to uphold the image others have of them. they have never seemed to care about that.
honestly, i think people are upset because they have projected a certain image of themselves onto radiohead and are now disappointed that they see that image was never actually there in the first place. people think i defend radiohead because i blindly see them as perfect, when in fact i am defending them because i have always known they are not.
