Frank Turner Suffers The Wrath Of Radiohead Fans (AKA “Indie Beliebers”)

Acoustic-strumming folk-punk pub-rocker Frank Turner is big enough to headline arenas in the UK, and he grabbed some headlines last week when Gigwise published a quote from Turner saying Radiohead should play "Creep" at live shows. "There's something kind of petty about not playing it to me," Turner said. "The world is full of band… More »

The Sound Of Someone Losing The Plot: Britpop’s Big Comedown And What Came Next

Oasis and Blur may mark the official beginning of Britpop with the twin classics of Definitely Maybe and Parklife, respectively, but some people -- particularly, seemingly, in music-writer circles -- claim Pulp's Different Class as the genre's pinnacle. It's the smartest of the bunch, as intricate and sprawling as Parklife, and armed with just a… More »

Watch Jonny Greenwood Debut “Loop” At London Power Station

Over the weekend, the Radiohead guitarist and Paul Thomas Anderson film-score composer Jonny Greenwood performed at London's Wapping Hydraulic Power Station, a 124-year-old facility built to power machinery across London. It's easy to imagine that the idea of old, clanking, outmoded technology helped spark "Loop," the piece of music he debuted there. Performing with the… More »

Radiohead Release PolyFauna App

It's been three long years since Radiohead last released an album, which makes it all the more appropriate that today, they released an app. It's called PolyFauna, and per Thom Yorke, it's "an experimental collaboration between us (Radiohead) & Universal Everything, born out of The King Of Limbs sessions and using the imagery and the… More »

Big Ears Festival 2014 Lineup

Since 2009 the Big Ears Festival has brought a massive slate of experimental music to Knoxville, Tennessee, and they've just announced their lineup for next spring (the festival occurs during the weekend of March 28-30). It's kind of hard to contain my excitement here since I'm a sucker for this sort of thing, but if… More »

Watch Colin Greenwood Play Solo Bass For A Paris Runway Show

Earlier today on Reddit (on the r/radiohead SubReddit, specifically) a video surfaced titled "Colin Greenwood's first ever solo performance," and though it's short, that is indeed what we're looking at here. Greenwood played bass for a Paris Runway show held in a warehouse. The setup is extremely stark, as Greenwood plays solo against his am… More »

Read Stanley Donwood’s Stories Behind His Radiohead Album Covers

Stanley Donwood's artwork for Radiohead has been the best working relationship since Pink Floyd hooked up with Storm Thurgson (who passed away at the beginning of this year). His art has come to define the band, and part of the excitement of a new Radiohead release comes from the collection of art that comes with… More »

Last November, a collection of Radiohead (then, On A Friday) demo tapes were being shilled on eBay for 50 grand. Today, an auctioneer based out of Cheshire in the UK has another cassette of rare and unreleased material from 1986, "[a] holy grail for Radiohead and Music collectors, the only known copy to exist," which… More »

Live Nation Charged Over Fatal Radiohead Stage Collapse

On June 16th, 2012, 33-year-old Radiohead drum technician Scott Johnston was killed after a stage collapse in Toronto. The crew was setting up for a concert that evening at Downsview Park when a portion of the stage caved in.

Thom Yorke – “Honey Pot”

Today, we celebrated the 10th birthday of Radiohead's Hail To The Thief, and we were also treated to a KCRW DJ set delivered by Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich. Would it be fair to call this Thom Yorke Day? Yes and no, really, because as you know, round these parts, EVERY DAY IS THOM YORKE… More »

Hail To The Thief Turns 10

Every Radiohead album can be associated with some watershed moment in the band's career. Pablo Honey is the one with "Creep,” still their most popular song by far if Spotify streams count for anything. The Bends is the one where they established themselves as guitar deities with staying power. OK Computer is the one that… More »

This Is The Worst Radiohead Tattoo

Sometimes you have to wonder if people really understand the permanence of a tattoo. I say this not as someone who has committed nothing permanently to her body, but as someone who has gotten drunk and decided it was a great idea to get some shitty little owl from Halloween flash very poorly and prominently… More »

Check Out The Insane Guest List For Radiohead At Irving Plaza ’97

When I was single, I would "impress" women by telling them about some of the cool mid-'90s concerts at which I spent generous portions of my college life. I managed to find a spouse in spite of this behavior, but since you asked, these were my surefire closers: Blur at the Academy in '94, touring… More »

Watch Glee Cover Radiohead’s “Creep”

In its two decades of existence, "Creep," the anthem of disconnect that introduced Radiohead to the world, has endured all manner of covers. Prince sang it at Coachella, Korn sang it on MTV Unplugged, you probably sang it when Rock Band 3 included it, and I can vividly remember an entire mob of eighth grader… More »

Deconstructing: 20 Years Of Thom Yorke

The most memorable moment of my junior year Homecoming night wasn't the dinner (who knows where), the dance (in my high school gymnasium, I think?) or the date (though I hope she's doing well these days). It came after all that, when I got home, sprawled out on the living room floor, rewound the VCR… More »

Pablo Honey Turns 20

Every once in a while, you'll still meet people who claim that Pablo Honey is Radiohead's best album. Musical taste is an entirely subjective thing, and we're all special unique flowers, but these people are obviously attention-hungry psychopaths looking for ways to dominate conversations and shit on everything you hold dear. Even if you prefer… More »

Stream Previously Unreleased Thom Yorke Mixes

Thom Yorke is on the cover of the latest edition of the British magazine Dazed & Confused, which doesn't seem like that great of an achievement, considering that the man can presumably pop up on any magazine cover anytime he wants, just by deigning to sit for an interview. But Yorke is apparently amped enough… More »
