YouTube has an abundance of wondrous stuff from the current Best Band In The World — Radiohead. I’ve been listening to a lot of it in the past few days, so I thought I’d compile some of it here and save you time. Here’s a bunch of interesting versions of some of my favorite songs.
The band has appeared on Later with Jools Holland a bunch of times – here’s 1995, doing The Bends. Enjoy Thom’s hair, enjoy Phil with hair and the general intensity and occasional bad notes.
Here’s a gorgeous solo live acoustic version of Nice Dream…
Jonny and Thom do a lovely acoustic version of No Surprises. Really amazing.
I love the acoustic step – here’s Everything In It’s Right Place, without migraine causing delay effects – although it cuts off abruptly. Fuckers.
Bridge School benefit, 2002 – amazing audio only of Thom Yorke doing Neil Young’s After The Goldrush using Neil’s piano.
More Bridge School benefit 2002 – Thom does Paranoid Android solo acoustic.
Not enough Marvin for you? Jockmock2 has posted a ton of amazing stuff from the 2006 Bonnaroo festival. Here’s a great sounding version of Paranoid Android.
Here’s a pre-release version of Weird Fishes / Arpeggi also from Bonnaroo, 2006.
Here’s another JockMock2 post – Karma Police from Shepard’s Bush, 2003. Love on the crowd and the camera angles.
More huge crowd stuff – Just at Glastonbury, 2003. Rawk!
Since their old label just released a Best Of album – here’s an interview with the band talking about Best Of Albums…
