Its been too long. I could explain and excuse but I thought I'd just try to get on with not being so rubbish instead.
I've been meaning to post this Radiohead song for a little while. It was inspired by a radio interview with Harry Patch, the last 'Tommy' - British veteran of the Great War - who died at the end of July, and is one of the most achingly beautiful things I've heard in a very long time.
Harry Patch was a remarkable man who lived to 111 and was latterly very vocal about the horrors and futility of war, though he didn't speak of his experiences in the trenches until after reaching his centenary. Thom Yorke explains the song with typical eloquence here.
The song was first aired on the BBCs Today programme on 5 August but I would urge you to buy the download - the £1 charge for something so sublime is almost indecent and the proceeds go to an excellent cause.
