Ben Mathis-Lilley from New York Magazine wrote to us about an interview he recently did with Ed. Entitled “Secrets of the Radiohead Set List”, the interview details how the band chooses their set list and the significance of certain songs played.
Along with front man Thom Yorke and drummer Phil Selway, O’Brien puts together set lists after lunch on the day of each show. “For this tour, we have about fifteen new songs, and before the tour, we went through a list of about 100 old ones, then whittled it down and rehearsed 45 songs, and we draw from those.” We asked O’Brien to go through the list after last Tuesday’s show at the Theater at Madison Square Garden.
