Colin Greenwood reviews the Guardian writers’ Creep cover


When Radiohead announced they’d be releasing a newspaper, some writers at the Guardian decided to take action. In their own words, “If a band could wade so recklessly into the Guardian’s area of expertise, could we not wade into theirs?” With tongue firmly in cheek, the Guardian dutifully knocked out a cover of Creep. With a banjo!

You can listen to the Guardian cover Creep here.

Radiohead’s response came courtesy of Colin Greenwood who wrote a column in the Guardian today reviewing the Creep cover. Colin should be writing lyrics because he is great with words: “Having heard quite a few covers of Creep by artists such as Chrissie Hynde and Roland Orzabal, this is definitively one of them. I thought the Radio Eds dispatched it with pitiless ease.”

OK Colin, now get back to perfecting Bloom’s bassline for future performances.

  • the girls voice sounded very good.

    the banjo sounded awesome

    and the floor tom sound really deep, everything else: meh

  • good luck with kid a :))))))

  • Richard Greenwood, eh? Is that part of the April Fools or am I missing something?

  • guys check this out…it must be an april fools joke, because I doubt Radiohead would ever play in this festival in Puerto Rico (not that I would complain at all…but would be very pissed if this is a joke). on the other hand, it would be hard to think why a fest that is in no position to be joking around would come out with something like this… hope it’s true, but if not, then I hope they pay for it.

  • The Puerto Rico indie link turns out is fake, but what can anyone expect from a place that is home or Reggeaton.., The cover was great, these journalists really know to rock. Great cover.
