Ed Obrien QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A lot of the time, now, it would seem that the power doesn't reside with politicians. So much power has been given over to corporations.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
At the end of OK Computer we were playing big, big arenas and it wasn't right. You can do those things occasionally but at the time it didn't feel right.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
Bowie is a musician, but he works like a painter. Thom always thought that we should aspire to that.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
Bowie, in the Seventies, was a reference, and it is with that we aspire. He did not stop composing, he changed his style continuously.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
But for the first time, we haven't made a huge leap forward in sound from our last album. Fans who own Kid A should be able to get their heads around it.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
But that's the history of the human race - you can meet wonderful people on both sides, but they'll do horrible things to each other.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
But we will play 6, 7 new songs each evening, approximately a third in the concert. I think it's a good balance. It will be very interesting to see the public's reaction. But i think when we'll play the very first new piece, we will be scared.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
Everyone who's serious about what they're doing must be in constant motion forward.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
For a band like us tracklisting is a massive, massive task.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
I don't read the press, I don't watch endless music TV.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
I grew up as a real singles junkie.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
I think that's what helped us: confidence, respect, the desire to work hard.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
I'm thrilled we've got a new single out, as singles were the way I first got into music as a child.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
It is fantastic to be found in a foreign country.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
It's really weird to be playing chords again. Haven't played chords for a long time. I realised I haven't played chord changes since OK Computer and stuff like that.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
Not in the mornings, I'm always so tired in the morning.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
Of the 25 songs we've recorded there were 24 that we wanted to have on an album. That wouldn't have worked. So when one of our wise managers suggested the idea of considering two different album, it cleared the way for us.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
Often, a group has success and it is found protected, isolated, cut from reality.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
Once again, that joined the approach of great painters, like Picasso, who had several periods in his life as an artist.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
So we are not doing the traditional album, tour, album, tour, album, tour anymore. We're going to tour when we want to, regardless of whether we've got a record out.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
That does not disturb me, but playing in front of 18 000 people each evening does not correspond to our philosophy.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
The thing is, it really did take us too long to get these recordings done. We've had our rough times in the studio in the past, but after four weeks most of the material would have been recorded. This time it seemed like it just goes on and on.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
The thing you worry about is that the rock'n'roll business can turn you and wants to turn you into one of these really sad old musicians.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
There is always some universal proportion, but along with that there are some places where special things happen. Ireland, for example. I've always felt it's interesting to play there. Maybe they just drink more than anybody else.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
There was this discussion to know how long the human ear was really receptive to the music. A 74 minute CD is too long. We thought about making two CDs, 35 minutes each... But the songs need to breathe.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
We are a weird bunch, we are very disparate.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
We are different people - you get a different take on the band whoever you speak to. Somehow, at the end of it, it goes through the filtering process and out comes the Radiohead thing.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
We don't hate the media, it's just that when there's too much of it we get bored, but it happens to every human being. I don't think we even hated the media by the time that movie was made. We were just tired.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
We often record different versions of songs and the new one is the first time it has been strong enough to bear hearing again.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
We're going to play around with the setlist. It should be quite fun. I'm happy to play most of our songs as long as we keep moving, keep it fresh.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
We're not aware of fame itself, we're not that kind of band.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
We're not spokespeople, we're musicians.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
We've discovered an interesting parallel relationship: The less time you spend on the road, the more sane you are.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
What had disappointed me at the time of the last tour, was to go on a worldwide tour, we were at some incredible places and we couldn't enjoy it, hadn't the time.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
What is so refreshing playing with Neil Finn and all his friends is these people think exactly the same - regular people doing their thing and separating the music from the business.
Quotation of Ed Obrien
When we do release singles, we don't mess about- put your best song out first to let people know an album's on the way.
