Top: Duran Duran’s “The Wedding Album” Bottom: “Pablo Honey” by Radiohead
I don’t know how this is possible, but it is. February 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of 2 great albums: Duran Duran’s self titled album (later renamed “The Wedding Album” and Radiohead’s debut record “Pablo Honey.”
Duran Duran’s record featured world-wide smashes “Ordinary World” and “Come Undone” and Radiohead’s debut featured “Creep,” a song the band have seemingly disowned as they’ve moved away from their indie rock roots and have become one of the most exciting and experimental rock bands since The Beatles.
Happy anniversary to both albums. Thanks for 20 years of greatness… so far!
Share your (careless) memories of both albums in the comments section!
Thom Yorke does not like UK Prime Minister David Cameron. His dislike of the politician is so strong, Yorke was quoted as saying:
“Politics is not a fun thing to write about…I can’t say I love the idea of a banker liking our music, or David Cameron. I can’t believe he’d like [Radiohead’s last album] ‘King of Limbs’ much. But I also equally think, who cares? As long as he doesn’t use it for his election campaigns, I don’t care. I’d sue the living shit out of him if he did.” [source Dazed and Confused magazine via NME]
Before you get totally excited, please note that there are definitely some limitations on this video. You do the best you can when you are in a crowded stadium, trying to enjoy the show, dodging people’s heads, etc. My suggestion is that if you feel the need to criticize my camera work, please feel free to go to hundreds of shows a year and do a better job at reporting and reviewing them
But now – get totally excited. Radiohead RULE! They put on a show that for lack of a better term was “insanely incredible and mind blowing.”
Get ready to check out a ridiculous light show while Thom Yorke and company perform “Myoxmatosis” (including the alternate lyrics on the last verse that appear only in the lyric booklet of ‘Hail to the Thief,’ but do not on the studio version). Thom’s dancing, the lights, the song… WOW!
This is from June 1, 2012 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
