Blast From the Past: Radiohead at Reading 1994

by Jonathan on April 17, 2010


Okay, so the video quality isn’t that great but the audio is top notch. This is from Radiohead’s 12 song set at the Reading Festival in 1994. Things were different then… Thom had blond hair, Ed was in his pirate shirt phase, Phil had hair, Jonny is wearing mom jeans, and Colin looks to be wearing a quilt. With that said, this is still a great video to watch. Thom starts out singing a cover of Tim Buckley’s “Sing a Song For You” which reminds us just how great his voice can be.

    and since it’s a video from 1994 uploaded on youtube, I’d say the video quality is great!

    wow, just noticed, when they say who radiohead were, they left out jonny. I don’t know how they could’ve forgotten about him after how he ended the show hahahahha

  • Always a pleasure to be featured on GreenPlastic :). A large portion of the video is DVD quality, so there is good quality video in parts :).

    The way Jonny ended that show has always been a radiohead highlight for me. Awesome.

    I don’t understand why it’s so weird for these pop artist like Radiohead. How many people on here can write a song like Thom York? Does that mean you shouldn’t be a fan? Maybe they just know what they do well and aren’t trying to be someone else. Beyonce kicks ass at what she does. If Thom doesn’t want to do it, then that’s his right. But, I doubt it would be because of the genre barriers. From what I can tell, they are pretty open minded listeners (at least now that they are older and wiser).
