Biography

Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK (1985 – present)

Radiohead are an English band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK which formed in 1985. The band is composed of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano, beats), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboard, other instruments), Ed O’Brien (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar) and Phil Selway (drums, percussion).

The early years (1992 – 1995)

Radiohead released their first single, “Creep” in 1992. The song was initially unsuccessful, but it became a worldwide hit several months after the release of their debut album, Pablo Honey (1993). Radiohead’s popularity rose in the United Kingdom with the release of their second album, The Bends (1995). The band’s textured guitar parts and Yorke’s falsetto singing were warmly received by critics and fans.

International success (1996 - 2000)
Radiohead’s third album, OK Computer (1997), propelled them to greater international fame. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of modern alienation, OK Computer has often been acclaimed as a landmark record of the 1990s.

A change in style and leaving EMI (2000 – 2003)
Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001) marked a change in the band’s musical style. Radiohead incorporated music, , and influences into their songs, dividing fans and critics, but they remained popular. Hail to the Thief (2003), a mix of guitar-driven , and lyrics inspired by headlines, was the band’s final album for their major record label, EMI.

    I just discovered this band a month or so ago and I'm mesmerized. You very rarely come across a mainstream band of this stature which is still making such meaningful and experimental music and not some radio-tailored garbage devoid of any substance. Radiohead is clearly a band that kept it's integrity and always put music first, which is rare. Some of their stuff is so rhythmically complex, it boggles me. I don't think there's any doubt that this is one of the best bands ever.

    People who are dead-minded enough to spam upon such a sacred space as the Radiohead shoutbox deserve to be brutally castrated and then shoved down an outhouse hole.
