Hail to the Thief. That’s the title for Radiohead‘s forthcoming album, due out in early June. You can sneak a peak at the cover art and clips of the first video, There There, at GreenPlastic. On their You and Whose News section I found a link to a rather interesting Guardian article, Radio Days, about the Oxford band written by Jon Dennis, member of a band called Blab Happy. BH opened for a few Radiohead shows in 1993 before they became famous.
As people, Radiohead were nice, well-spoken, middle-class chaps who couldn’t really be described as rock’n’roll in the Spinal Tap sense. I wish I could report drug-fuelled orgies or televisions being hurled through windows, but the strongest thing I ever saw any of them touch was lager, and they always tidied the dressing room before they left.
