February 1995

Acoustic shows with Thom & Jonny:

The gigs were in London, Sheffield, Leicester and in Scotland (Glasgow?). Entry to the 100 capacity shows were by invitation from WASTE.

At the Sheffield show, Thom and Jonny didn’t perform, because of Thom’s sore throat, so the whole night was an album playback with free bar. Everyone got plastered, including Pulp’s Jarvis cocker, who lived in Sheffield at the time.

Thom’s throat had recovered by the time they got to Leicester, enough to play a 30 minute set. The invite is green and double sided with the March ‘The Bends’ UK tour dates on one side, and a picture by Thom on the other), They played ‘My Iron Lung’, ‘Banana Co’, ‘Nice Dream’, ‘Lozenge of love’, ‘High & Dry’, ‘Street Spirit’, ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ ‘Bulletproof’ and ‘You’. Maybe some others. Their UK press officer was also giving out free Tshirts. They were white, with Radiohead – Plug me in, I’m your best friend’, on the front, and the dates on the back.

review by JAMIE KASTNER (Toronto Sun) Ever wish pop music were dead?  Some groups’ shortcomings make you crave pop’s funeral; Radiohead welcome it by their very accomplishments. Tuesday night, the Oxford guitar-weighted quintet who gave the world Pablo Honey and more recently The Bends took RPM surfing on a select late-night radio dial.
A careful hand was kept on the volume knob, as they drove a couple of clever, if basic, song structures through a medium range of dynamics. Three guitars and a bass would weave around and about Thom Yorke’s vocal moans and pouts. In turn, measures of the meaningful-sounding, the world-weary sounding, the ironic-sounding, the angry-sounding, were drizzled, often within the same song, over the denominator of drummer Phil Selway’s deliberate ‘hat tips and snare shots. Thus the dial flipped from folk to punk, ’60s to ’80s, Beatles to Talk Talk, never perching for more than a few bars on each. They basically had two song templates. The first began with quiet folk-type chords strummed on electric or acoustic. Then it broke into distortion and heavy drums, and then pulled back to a bass drum and vocal vibe reminiscent of dub reggae. The second type was pretty much the same except the cycle started at a loud electric part. Live versions of songs like The Bends and High And Dry didn’t vary greatly from their arrangement on disc.
But the addition of a visual element of bouncing bodies to sounds that otherwise might drown you in ambience made a compelling contrast. Although their tour around the pop dial was deftly conducted, the band deliberately never remained on one station. This sense of dabbling was reflected in their calculated look and stage presence. Frontman Yorke had assumed a retro New Wave visual stance: jerked open shirt, sideways-flung tie, spiked hair. When not clasping the microphone or doing neck rolls while strumming his guitar, he bopped around the stage as though it were a grid of hotplates – carefully off-the-wall, never in danger of getting burned. All
this was fine and mildly diverting, but the question raised in the first line of The Bends – “Where do we go from here?” – was never answered. Rather, Radiohead’s bleak pastiche of dying styles was the best argument for their extinction.
