with radiohead being on tour we have not gotten much activity from chieftan mews……….or have we?
here is a video of the band about to play lotus flower at the bonnaroo festival.
Also at the recent chicago,tinley park show on 6/10/2012 “THEY” played the song “fulstop” for the first time and our twitter friend @twisted_word (elly) pointed out that the background lighting used is the flash animation used for the ziggurat.
check out this video of the performance paying attention to the lighting used and then compare with the zig video.

and the zig video.
So, what does it all mean? who knows but it does show the mews is still present and even a bit active on this current tour.
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.

Chieftan Mews theories, and old stuff which maybe lead us to the future?
