Were you hoping this headline meant guitarist Jonny Greenwood had finally pushed the right sequence of buttons on his daisy-chained synthesizers and effects pedals to launch himself and his bandmates in Radiohead back a couple of decades, unleashing their experimental outer-space anti-rock stylings on a Stone Temple Pilots-fatigued 1995 public, Ziggy Stardust-style? Me too.
It’s still pretty good news though. Paste Magazine, which hosted a show at New York’s Tramps nightclub heralding the release of Radiohead’s smash second record, The Bends, has made available to the public a recording of that night’s set as a free download. It’s a great show, and a gift to both die-hards as well as the more faint-hearted Radiohead fan who doesn’t understand what all this bleeping and blooping has been about since OK Computer. Go on and get it!
