Glastonbury drew out all sorts of stars this year, including a day-of surprise set from Radiohead. But on the ultra-exclusive Radiohead tip, Thom and Nigel DJ’d “in a crashed aeroplane fuselage” with “friends” while Glasto still raged over yonder. (For the exact location of the wreckage that was Nigel and Thom’s DJ booth, Yorke helpfully provided these coordinates over at deadairspace: “the one around the stone circle, and under the flags. in the rabbit hole. in the darkest depths of shangri-la. around the van de graff lightning generator crackling through in soaking sky.” Couldn’t miss it, really. No, really: XL handily provides further detail on the event, calling it a “4 hour DJ set in the Fuselage [a club inside a crashed airplane] on Saturday night.) So a great many songs were played, though only 17 were identified in that deadairspace post. Since it’s always interesting to know what songs these guys have on their minds, the 17 are reprinted below. And since it never feels right to normalize Thom’s characteristic formatting, here’s the tracklist and his full blurb describing the affair, with weird spacing and shift-key aversion preserved:

mmm you know away from the celebrity media circus on the other side of the valley, the OTHER glastonbury happened.
the one you aren’t reading much about, the one they couldn’t hang.
the fun, chilled out and insane one.
the one that couldn’t give a flying toss who you are really. the one we went for.
the one around the stone circle, and under the flags. in the rabbit hole. in the darkest depths of shangri-la.
around the van de graff lightning generator crackling through in soaking sky,
and in a crashed aeroplane fuselage where we and our friends were.. nigel and i Djing.. until dawn
here’s a selection of what we played.
