Alexander Calder, Myxomatose, 1953 So here I am listening to Hail to the Thief as I work and I'm thinking about one of the songs - Myxomatosis - and wondering if that is the same title given to one of my favourite Alexander Calder sculptures.

Indeed it is, but why Calder and Radiohead wanted to name pieces of art after an infectious disease that affects rabbits, I do not know. Like there aren't other conditions that make one twitch and jerk unpredictably ... although it does sound nice, especially en franšais.
