Radiohead at the Reading Festival

“In a festival heavy on over-familiar or unimpressive bands, it was left to last night’s closing act Radiohead to wrong-foot everyone. The odds on their angst-ridden singer Thom Yorke’s first words being ‘Whassup?’ followed by the initial hit song they’ve all but disowned, ‘Creep’, would have been prohibitively long,” writes Nick Hasted for The Independent. It’s disarming to hear Yorke turn himself into a Budweiser commercial.  Still, there’s no doubting how good “Creep” followed by “The National Anthem” sound together.
