Note From Dada!
Με αυτά τα "ραδιόπληκτα κεφάλια" θα ασχοληθώ επισταμένως κάποια άλλη στιγμή - όχι τόσο για τη μουσική τους που την θεωρώ εξαιρετική, αλλά για την "εναλλακτική" τους στάση ως μπάντα. Όπως και να 'χει εδώ βρίσκεται ένα από τα καλύτερα album τους και μία από τις πιο ωραίες περιπτώσεις ανάμιξης της alternative rock σκηνής με την electronica.

About Radiohead
Radiohead are an English alternative rock band formed in 1986 in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. The band is composed of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano, electronics), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, other instruments), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar, synthesisers), Ed O'Brien (guitar, backing vocals) and Phil Selway (drums, percussion). Radiohead achieved international popularity in the late 1990s and have sold approximately 30 million albums as of 2008.

Radiohead released their first single, "Creep", in 1992. Their debut album, Pablo Honey, followed in 1993. "Creep" was initially unsuccessful, but the song became a worldwide hit when reissued a year later. Radiohead's popularity in the United Kingdom increased 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. Radiohead's third album, OK Computer (1997), propelled the band to greater fame worldwide. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of alienation from the modern world, OK Computer has often been acclaimed as a landmark record of the 1990s.

The release of Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001) saw Radiohead reach the peak of their popularity, while the albums divided critical opinion. This period marked a change in Radiohead's musical style, with their incorporation of avant-garde electronic music, Krautrock, post-punk and jazz influences. Hail to the Thief (2003), which mixed guitar-driven rock with electronics and lyrics inspired by headlines, was the band's final album for their major record label, EMI. Radiohead's seventh album, In Rainbows (2007), was first released independently as a digital download for which customers selected their own price, later meeting with critical and chart success.
