Back when a mate gave me a pirated tape of the newly-released first Radiohead album, I really liked it. Unsurprising perhaps, but I wouldn’t have thought for a second that 30 years on I’d still be pretty damn keen on their albums, anymore than I’d be likely to still listen to new Dodgy, Sleeper or Blur albums…

But obviously Radiohead released OK Computer and the world was astounded. Then they released Kid A and people were confounded… but still knew it was brilliant! The journey from there is what this mix covers, with tracks from OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac (and the recent additions on KID A MNESIA), Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows, The King of Limbs, A Moon Shaped Pool, plus some remixes and lesser known treats from the Towering Above The Rest compilation and EPs.

I’ve gone very light on OK Computer content as I was trying to pickup more of the atmospherics (and jazziness and electronics) from the later albums, but I’m hoping the intense paranoid political spirit of OK Computer pervades it all.

From Mixcloud: This show was 3rd in the global indie dance / alternative dance chart, 4th in the global indie rock chart, 7th in the global nu jazz chart, 11th in the global indie chart and 21st in the global electronica chart.

Anyhoo, give it a listen, and holler if you like it! 🙂
