Radiohead is my favorite band in the world, and inspired by my own annoyance at that I wrote this piece for the sixth issue of The Pitchfork Review, which you can find in bookstores, online, and at Urban Outfitters near you! It’s full of incredible full-on music articles and interviews and other little pieces like this, I highly recommend checking it out. Here are some of the ones from the print + the ones that got cut from the print version for length reasons.
