Radiohead - Live From The Basement & "15 Step" at The Grammys


Here's a full hour of live Radiohead. The setlist is primarily derived from In Rainbows. It's not a bad CD, but I don't like it as much as the OK Computer/Kid A/Amnesiac triumvirate. That makes "Optimistic" at 34:50 the highlight for me. Even still, it's pretty cool to see one of the biggest bands in the world perform in what looks like an actual basement studio. Maybe seeing it in this venue will improve my impression of the album.

Even if you're not a fan of "15 Step," you'll want to check out Thom Yorke, Johnny Greenwood, and the USC drumline performing it at the Grammys. The energy in this performance allowed me to finally appreciate the song. Radiohead seem to be above awards shows, espcially ones that take place in LA. But performing with some college-age Californians, Thom seems to be enjoying himself, even swaggering a bit on stage instead of just doing that weird headbobbing thing of his.

  8. I find your blog fun to read and very addicting, so I've decided to Follow you.

    I have a blog as well, which you can follow if you're interested. It's the life story of a badass, modern Pecos-Bill-type character told in daily vignettes. I'm looking for actual readers, rather than just clickers/supporters, so if anyone's interested, feel free to take a look. =)
