Radiohead have shared a guest list for one of their 1997 OK Computer tour concerts. The list included The Beastie Boys, Blur, Lenny Kravitz, Madonna, Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Dave Matthews, Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, U2, Oasis, REM, and many others. Take a look at it below!
Haley Joel Osment discussed Radiohead’s OK Computer in a new Pitchfork.
“OK Computer inaugurated that period in my school years when I could spend every night lost in my headphones as I went to sleep. All the adventurous decisions the band and producer Nigel Godrich made create this sensation that you are passing through different physical spaces during each track; it’s an ecstatic experience listening to it all the way through. There’s grim imagery in the lyrics, but there’s also so much joy in these songs. It’s an album that manages to make “the emptiest of feelings” a genuinely uplifting line.
Cillian Murphy said, “Radiohead have made so many important records, but the emotional complexity of OK Computer is hard to equal. “Exit Music (for a Film)” is like going over a sonic waterfall in a barrel. “Karma Police” is so ecstatically sad, “No Surprises” so warmly unsettling (with one of the greatest music videos ever). It’s futile trying to find another record that can do all that. There is only one OK Computer.”
