Ok, Tunes o’ the day, and about time too: Radiohead. Maybe this will be Radiohead week, and they deserve it.
The question is, who is the art school, college crowd band for the 90s and oughts? Our generation (X that is) had the Talking Heads, thank gawd. Well, Thom Yorke of Radiohead grew up on The Talking Heads, and so we have him and his band. You have the srtrange, waily voice, the odd beats, and here are three very weird videos. ‘There there’ gets a lot of play on the airwaves here, and are very typical of them, but the other two videos here ‘Go to sleep’ and ‘Street spirit’ are sort of bonuses, but not exactly uplifting. Sort of gloomy and otherworldly, perfectly fitting a Monday morning mood.
