He appeared o… More »

Watch Radiohead’s Philip Selway Play Two Songs On Kimmel

Philip Selway will always be best-known as Radiohead’s drummer. But in recent years, he’s also carved out a nice lane for himself by releasing a couple of graceful, reflective solo singer-songwriter albums. The latest of those, Weatherhouse, came out last year. And last night, Selway was on Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform a couple of… More »

Jonny Greenwood Confirms Radiohead Are Recording A Version Of ’90s Rarity “Lift”

Last month Jonny Greenwood talked to Dutch website 3voor12 about Radiohead’s progress in the studio, but as Consequence Of Sound notes, the interview just captured the attention of the band’s English-speaking fans on Reddit. And it’s a good thing they caught it! Most of the exchange is mundane — it took Radiohead “a lot of… More »

“Radio Head” Was Inspired By The Guy Who Played Ned Ryerson In Groundhog Day

Any serious Radiohead fan knows that after wisely dropping On A Friday, they named themselves after “Radio Head,” a Talking Heads song from the 1986 album True Stories and David Byrne film of the same name. As Dangerous Minds points out, the song itself has a hell of a backstory, one that came to light… More »

This Is A Very Surprising Oral History Of Radiohead’s OK Computer

Back in March, we hosted our first-ever Radiohead Week in celebration of the 20th anniversary of The Bends. It went over really well, mostly because the folks who read and comment on the site fucking love Radiohead. Thank you for participating; it was fun to be a part of and gave me (someone who admittedly… More »

Gov’t Mule & Toots Hibbert Share A Reggae Radiohead Cover

Jam-band Radiohead covers are practically a genre unto themselves, and here’s an especially weird one. In 2006, Gov’t Mule, the Southern-rock jam band founded by a couple of Allman Brothers sidemen, played an all-reggae show at New York’s Beacon Theatre. The reggae legend and Toots & The Maytals frontman Toots Hibbert sat in. The band… More »

Out Of Control On Videotape: The 10 Best Radiohead Music Videos

The most important Radiohead video is probably this clip, of the band playing “Creep” at the MTV Beach House in 1993. That’s the video that showed what the band could’ve easily been: A one-hit wonder playing for disinterested frat boys and beach bunnies, looking uncomfortable and humiliated while knocking out their one perfect diamond of… More »

The Bends Turns 20

More than a year after they released The Bends, Radiohead spent their summer touring North America’s finer outdoor shed venues, opening for Alanis Morrisette. Considering the lordly spot Radiohead now occupy, that seems like a gross indignity. But they were lucky to be there. At least in the U.S., The Bends was not an anticipated… More »

5 Ideas For Your Next Tattoo Of Thom Yorke’s Face

Unlike Radiohead albums, it’s not really fair for me to rank band-inspired tattoos from worst to best. At the end of the day, that’s someone’s art and another person’s flesh that I’m critiquing, and this isn’t the right platform for it. Who am I to declare this misspelled Hail To The Thief chest piece… More »

Stereogum Presents… OKX: A Tribute To OK Computer

For this #tbt chapter of Radiohead Week, we’re reissuing (ha) our original track-for-track tribute to OK Computer. Stereogum’s free, downloadable compilation was released in July 2007 on the 10th anniversary of Radiohead’s classic album, and was the first in a series of tribute albums we’ve produced over the years.

30 Essential Radiohead Non-Album Tracks

My passionate teenage obsession with Radiohead coincided with the rise of Napster. So whereas previous generations of fanatical music fans lived and died by record stores, catalogs, and zines, I surfed the far recesses of the internet for rarities and had them delivered directly to my hard drive at snail speed. Maybe that was a… More »

Meredith Graves Interviews Her Dad About Radiohead

I have almost nothing to say on the subject of Radiohead. I barely know anything about their music, because I’ve never liked it. It’s not a value judgment on their personhood or anything — it’s just not for me.

The only person in my immediate life who likes Radiohead is my dad, who… More »

In Defense Of The King Of Limbs

If you look at the numbers, The King Of Limbs was a success. Its Metacritic score rests at a robust 80, ranking it above 2001’s Amnesiac and tying it with Kid A. (Of course part of Kid A’s legend is specifically attributable to the fact that it took a moment for many listeners and critic… More »

On A Friday: Radiohead In The ’80s

Before Radiohead released The Bends in 1995 and kicked off an unimpeachable run, there was 1993’s Pablo Honey. For a time, I ranked Pablo Honey alongside stuff like the Clash’s Cut The Crap: embarrassments by bands that were otherwise unassailable, the kind of albums the band and fans alike tried to willfully write out of… More »

Jonny Greenwood Shares Update On Radiohead’s Recording Sessions

Radiohead have been in and out of the studio since last fall. Presumably they’re working on their next album, but word has been mum about what exactly is going on. Jonny Greenwood broke that silence today, though, with an interview in Indian newspaper The Sunday Guardian. Here’s what Greenwood had to say about Radiohead’s progress:… More »
