Green Plastic Radiohead
by Jonathan on December 17, 2010
For those in the UK, the digital-only BBC4 will be airing an hour of Radiohead’s set from Glastonbury 1997 at 1:15 AM this Sunday night/Monday morning.
Set your DVR!
(thanks to Duncan)
Just watched it, great to see such a famous performance at last. I do prefer their 2003 Glastonbury set (brighter, more intense, more varied range of songs) but gotta congratulate the BBC on digging this one up.
waaa radiohead and pavement!!
wow, Sunday’s lineup is really terrible, except for pavement. man, if you could have had 1997 versions of Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Beck and Pavement on the same day, that would be one absurd day of alternative rock
Fantastic set but still prefer the #laterjools performance of Paranoid Android of the same year. Musically/technically as a recording I suppose inevitably going to be superior to a festival…
So did anyone think to record it? For years the only way to see this has been an extremely dodgy lo-reolution effort on YouTube. I expected to see a pristine digital copy appear after it was re-shown (I missed it). But no such luck.
