I could honestly care less about Harry Patch, the last living UK World War 1 Veteran (damn, man), but now that Radiohead made a song in his honor, I feel like I love the guy. Making it even more special, “Harry Patch (In Memory Of)” holds the first beautiful minutes of recorded post-In Rainbows material for Radiohead. It’s string-laden and slow. I could only hope someone records something like this when I die.
Listen to it here, and buy it at Waste. It’s for a worthy cause, not one I particularly care about, but I’m sure its worthy in some way.
