All Music Guide - Greg Prato
The import EP My Iron Lung is as close to a forgotten, long-lost Radiohead album as you can get. Although marketed and priced as an EP, it contains eight tracks, seven of which are unavailable anywhere else, and is half an hour long which more than meets the criteria for a full-length. But besides its length, what makes My Iron Lung such a find is the quality of the tracks, all of them being great outtakes from the sessions for their classic 1995 full-length release The Bends. And because of the tracks' consistency and sequencing, it plays like a real album rather than a collection of B-sides and outtakes thrown together haphazardly. Starting off with the title track, which ...

And because of the tracks' consistency and sequencing, it plays like a real album rather than a collection of B-sides and outtakes thrown together haphazardly. Starting off with the title track, which is the only song available elsewhere on The Bends, the band hits you with one strong track after another, such as "The Trickster," "Lewis Mistreated," "Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong," and others. The only weak spot on My Iron Lung is a closing acoustic version of their breakthrough hit "Creep." Performed solo by singer Thom Yorke, it contains a surprisingly harsh and off-key middle section, but his sincerity helps overcome the version's shortcomings. No Radiohead fan's collection is complete without the My Iron Lung EP. [Note: The My Iron Lung EP is available in a few different formats, some including less tracks than others. Be sure to get the Australian import, which contains the full eight tracks.]

    Great EP

    I highly recommend this EP of Radiohead's if only for the gorgeous "You Never Wash Up After Yourself". This is a good get if you love "The Bends" and want to get your hands on more songs like those.

    Hard to Find

    This Ep was first released in 1994 but was rereleased in two parts later on. It's better to get this version of it to save time, it's better than trying to track down the other two. The tracks here are very well done and makes one wonder why they didn't end up on the album in the first place. The acoustic version of "Creep" is the same version that appears on the "Itch Ep". All in all this is a great find. Most of the copies available are imports. at least for this version of the Ep.
