The working title of 'Go Slowly' was 'Can Stylee', and indeed the song (as played live in 2006) bears great resemblance to Can's 'Thief', a song Radiohead have covered a few times in the years prior.
'Can Stylee' was one of the titles that appeared on the blackboard the band used during two weeks of rehearsals from september 19th to 30th 2005. At the end of that session, Colin posted a picture of this board on Dead Air Space on september 30th, unfortunately (and probably intentionally) in rather low resolution, so that some of it can't be deciphered:
On March 8th 2006, shortly after sessions with Mark Stent had come to an unfruitful end, another photo of a blackboard (and a perhaps slightly worried Ed) was posted on Dead Air Space. A tour had been scheduled for may and june to escape the frustration of the recent sessions and to breathe new life into the project. Rehearsals for the upcoming dates had begun recently, and this board shows which new songs were at this point considered for inclusion in the setlists. 'Go Slowly' was one of these, and would indeed be played (click image for full size):
'Go Slowly' was not performed during the touring for The King of Limbs.
