Radiohead was one of the few alternative bands of the early '90s to draw
heavily from the grandiose arena rock that characterized U2's early albums.
But the band internalized that epic sweep, turning it inside out to tell tortured, twisted tales of angst and alienation. Vocalist Thom Yorke's pained lyrics were brought to life by the group's three-guitar attack,which relied on texture -- borrowing as much from My Bloody Valentine and Pink Floyd as R.E.M. and Pixies -- instead of virtuosity.

Formed by school friends in 1986, Radiohead did not release their first single
until 1992. "Creep", from their debut album Pablo Honey (1993), became a worldwide hit, the grunge genre then at the peak of its popularity.

Radiohead were initially branded as a one-hit wonder abroad, but they caught on at home in the UK with a second album, The Bends (1995), earning fans with their dense guitar atmospheres and frontman Thom Yorke's expressive singing.The band's third album OK Computer (1997) propelled them to greater attention;
popular both for its expansive sound and its themes of modern alienation,
it has been acclaimed by critics as a landmark record of the 1990s. With Kid A (2000)
and Amnesiac (2001), Radiohead reached their peak global popularity even as
their music became less conventional.

From May to June 2006, Radiohead toured England and major cities in Europe and North America.Radiohead premiered 10 new songs on its 2006 tour: "Bangers 'n' Mash", "Open Pick", "15 Step", "4 Minute Warning", "Spooks", "Bodysnatchers", "Go Slowly", "Videotape", "Down Is The New Up" and "All I Need". According to interviews, these represent only part of the newly written material. Radiohead will spend the rest of the year recording their new material in preparation for a new release in 2007.Official site
