Radiohead is a band founded by a group of Oxford students. The group includes Thom Yorke (vocals, guitar), Ed O’Brien (guitar, vocals), Jonny Greenwood (guitar), Colin Greenwood (bass) and Phil Selway (drums). Radiohead is a band that has permanently entered the canon of world alternative music, and by many is already considered one of the most important bands of rock history.
Radiohead members drew their inspiration primarily from the work of such British formations as Joy Division, The Fall or The Smiths. The band’s debut album – “Pablo Honey” released in 1992 – despite the faint media campaign, gained extraordinary popularity and got on the American charts. From this album comes the band’s first hit – “Creep”. The neurotic voice of Thom Yorke combined with the poignant and at the same time raw guitar sound turned out to be a hit.
After releasing their second album in 1994, The Bends, the band began touring with Alanis Morissette on the other side of the ocean, thanks to which they gained even greater popularity in the United States. The hit singles also helped, including “High and Dry” or “Just”.
