Radiohead 2011

With a new album arriving on Saturday, Radiohead’s getting their press house in order. Part of that is releasing a more recent band photo, which you can see/enjoy, above. They’ve had a lot of black and white press photos before, but this one seemed hilariously old-timey for them. So, I thought we could borrow a franchise from Videogum and write some captions. For instance:

  • “’Anyone Can Play The Penny Whistle’”
  • “Radiohead travel back in time so even Radiohead can be influenced by early Radiohead”
  • “Lady Antebellum”

You get it. Come up with better ones below. In other Radiohead news, the pre-order site for The King Of Limbs is live.
