Originally released: June 2001

Available on: Amnesiac (album)

 
There are barn doors
And there are revolving doors

Doors on the rudders of big ships
We are revolving doors

There are doors that open by themselves
There are sliding doors
And there are secret doors

There are doors that lock
And doors that don't

There are doors that let you in
And out
But never open
But they are trapdoors
That you can't come back from

 

Stop-start, bass-heavy sounds (perhaps a lingering manifestation of Yorke's collaborations with DJ Shadow?) and elevator pings form the backdrop as an electronically distorted, sped-up voice free-associates on the topic of doors. Video-game sound effects rise and descend throughout. More sonic experiment than song, this is perhaps the strangest track on either Amnesiac or Kid A. Certainly it bears the strangest title -- that isn't a typo. (from Jam!)

Colin: Pull Pulk Revolving Doors was made using an MC505 and some loops, together with some other found loops that we made in St Catherine’s Court when we were recording OK Computer.
