I'm glad you enjoyed it! There's a video of it too.
Oh, and I just remembered after thinking about it: most of that was written by the drummer, who is also quite a skilled composer and producer as well. I think we added a few small things, improvised around it quite a bit, and of course tacked Radiohead onto the end of it, but most of that composition was Dan's. I think the first three sections (the intro riff, the funky/swing section, and whole-tone scale walkup) were peices he'd written some years before, and I remember when he called me with the idea of the 11/4 section which was added later. The 15/4 section might have been a group composition, and then Radiohead for the last bit. Memory's hazy on all that though.
