RADIOHEAD – ‘Creep’ – GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL UK 2017

Smashing live performances of smashing knockouts

‘Creep’ by RADIOHEAD
Glastonbury Festival 2017

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
And I wish I was special
You’re so fuckin’ special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.
I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I’m not around
You’re so fuckin’ special
I wish I was special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.

RADIOHEAD’s First Step To Awesomeness – Debut Album ‘PABLO HONEY’ Turns 25…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

20 February 2018

Band: RADIOHEAD
Album: PABLO HONEY – the band’s debut
Released: 22 February 1993 – 25 years ago…
Rolling Stone wrote: “Flashing a song called ‘Creep’ as a musical ID takes cheek, but then, everything about these Brits is unabashed. On their debut, the swagger affected by every
arch-Anglo since the Kinks is already in full effect. Three guitars (and bass) and a singer
whose narcissistic angst rivals Morrissey’s (‘I will not control myself!’) Thom Yorke screams on ‘Vegetable’ and on ‘Prove Yourself’ he mourns, ‘I’m better off dead’), these five Oxford lads come on extreme. What elevates them to fab charm is not only the feedback and strumming fury of their guitar work — and the dynamism of their whisper-to-a-scream song structures — which recall the Who by way of the early Jam, but the way their solid melodies and sing-along choruses resonate pop appeal. If they don’t implode from attitude overload, Radiohead warrant watching.”

Turn Up The Volume! says: their very first step to awesomeness,
geniusness and massiveness…
Three Top Tracks: How Do You? / Creep / Thinking About You

* HOW DO YOU? – Radiohead would never rock like this again – nasty and rowdy…

* CREEP – simply unavoidable, because it’s a 24 Karat Gold classic…

* THINKING ABOUT YOU – vulnerable and gripping…

PABLO HONEY in full…
