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 think smog started out the same as dream River is doing right now, and that is it didn't really catch my immediate attention, outside of a few songs (I love Seagull right now), and now I'm really digging A River... and Knock Knock

    How did Goo follow such a influence fulled album like daydream nation?

    Dirty/Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star and Washing Machine are far better then Goo.

    Well yeah, but that doesn't mean Goo is still damn good. Oh Tyler, Tyler, Tyler, tyler

    The 80s work is far better with stuff like Sister and Daydream Nation.
