RADIOHEAD Topped The UK Album Charts 25 Years Ago With Their Magnum Opus ‘OK COMPUTER’

Back in time

29 June 2022

Band: RADIOHEAD
Album: OK COMPUTER

Released: 21 May 1997 – their 3rd LP
Score: No 1 in the UK on
29 June 1997 – 25 years ago

Pitchfork said: “The record is brimming with genuine emotion,
beautiful and complex imagery and music, and lyrics that are
at once passive and fire-breathing. OK Computer is like tossing
David Bowie, old U2, Spacehog and lots of Pink Floyd into a
blender and pushing the ‘kill’ button.”
Score: 5/5.

TUTV: A 5-star classic. Glorious from start to finish.
Visionary musicianship. Hands down.

Singles/clips: No Surprises / Karma police / Paranoid Android / Lucky

It Will Attract Your Attention – THE SMILE Debut With A Great RADIOHEAD Album

14 May 2022

Supergroup THE SMILE featuring radioheads Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood
and Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner have their long-awaited debut LP
A LIGHT FOR ATTRACTING ATTENTION
out and it’s no less than prodigious.

It could have been, easily, a new Radiohead LP. Entracing and
riveting with Thom Yorke at its feverish and vulnerable best.

Except for some amazeballs cherry bombs (You Will Never Work In Television Again / Thin Thing and We Don’t Know What Tomorrow Brings) Yorke comes up with characteristic slo-mo Radiohead musings. It sounds both familiar and astounding.

First-class work. Enough lights to attract my attention

Pitchfork says: “The debut from Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and drummer Tom Skinner’s new group is instantly, unmistakably the best album yet by a Radiohead side project… At 53, Yorke has seen them all. And once again, he’s battling the absurdity of existence the only way he knows how: by offering a salve for his anxieties without letting anyone off the hook for turning everything we hold dear into one big joke.” Score: 8.5/10.

Heartbreaker In Both Sound And Vision – ‘I PROMISE’ By RADIOHEAD

Lullabies from the sandman

Five years ago OK COMPUTER turned 20 (so yes, next month it’s 25). To celebrate the occasion RADIOHEAD released a special anniversary edition of their masterpiece called OKNOTOK featuring three previously unreleased tracks recorded during the OK sessions.

One of them is the supreme ballad titled I PROMISE.

A heartbreaker that sends shivers down your spine, in sound and vision.

Listen/watch

I won’t run away no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when you lock me out, I promise
I say my prayers every night, I promise

I don’t wish that I’m strict, I promise
The tantrums and the chilling chats, I promise
Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise
Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise

I won’t run away no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise
Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise

I won’t fool around no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when you lock me out, I promise
I say my prayers every night, I promise
I won’t fool around no more, I promise

I won’t run away no more, I promise

Rock For The Rich With THE SMILE (feat. Thom Yorke)

Who’s on the road

2 February 2022

Supergroup THE SMILE feat. Radiohead boys Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood
and Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner hit the road this Spring/Summer for
an extensive European tour.

For their small venue gigs they charge 70 euros / 80 US Dolars / 60 Pounds.

This is rock ‘n’ roll played by billionaires for the rich only. For youngsters
or the ones with a low-payed job, this is a fortune to go and see these greedy
guys so they can stay in 5-star hotels, drinking champagne and eating caviar
for breakfast before taking a giant limo to the gig. Scandalous!

Hail to the Thieves!

If you want to see THE SMILE play their new single
THE SMOKE live on stage you can always rob a bank…

THE SMILE: Moneybook

(Ps: Nick Cave and Waren Ellis charged as much per concert on their recent tour. Capitalists!)
