I was going through some of the work muggs did over on our “big sister”www.ersmenoo.com and i began to think about back when the film “the most gigantic lying mouth of all time” was released and how shortly after there was this whole bit about people not receiving royalties payments and what not.more on that here> http://ersmenoo.com/who-is-chieftan-mews/ anyways…what if the original concept of a “chieftan mews” was an attempt by the band to take the big music industry and all the less than honest things they do to a band and give it a physical form. give it a face,a name,a voice?
That could be what chieftan mews was/is. Take the title of the film,The most gigantic lying mouth of all time. kinda sounds like something somebody might call a big time record executive. Of course the face provided for mews would be that of Mr Nigel godrich,seen below.
And why not? often referred to as “the sixth member of radiohead” he certainly is the man behind the curtain pulling the strings and you can bet he knows a thing or two about unsavory characters within the music biz.
now lets move on to the film “the most gigantic lying mouth of all time” the film marks the first release from the band once they were free from the clutches of that big monster record label EMI. i think we all know the story of radiohead and EMI and how the band got screwed by the label. so…it would make sense that the first release by the band after being done with EMI would reflect the distrust and bitterness the band would have towards EMI. Perhaps all those “snide remarks” by mews might have a bit to do with that?
So do you have any opinions on this? if so,please leave a reply and let us know what you think.

Just after Mews tweet today I just think on this: Will be 3 drummers on Texas tonight?

Before Chieftan Mews reviled the Correct Meaning of Ims Menoo to be “He’s Mental” there was a number of interesting and somewhat zany attempts to figure out the meaning of the phrase including:
ims menoo = Emo Omnis = “Buy/Acquire Everything”
ers menoo = Nemo Sero = “No One” Scatter/Sprawl/Cultivate”
ims menoo is mime soon?
“Moon” Theories where also popular.
Ims Menoo is ”Semi Moon”!
ims menoo = anagram for moon mise with mise being a misspelling of mice ala “Mice, Dog Bird” the original title for “Separator”
ims means “instant message” and menoo is who you are supposed to message.
imsmenoo is a anagram of ‘Memo in so.’
Know any other good ones? Let us know.
there has been numerous times where mews himself has predicted the happenings of radiohead.
when chieftan claimed to be banished to the ziggurat i decided it would be fun to steal the ziggurat video and post it onto youtube,then send it to him so he could see what i did.(hoping he would give me a pat on the back for being a thief)i used a facebook that does not belong to me and sent him a message on his “wall”. take a look at the screenshot below. the video of the ziggurat at that time did indeed reveal the face of mews. however,if you go to http://www.the-ziggurat.com now you will see no sign of chieftans presence in the video. click on my youtube link and watch the video. then click on http://www.the-ziggurat.com and watch. do you see any differences? WELL GO ON….DO YOU??????????
