Jennifer Nine reviews The Bends by Radiohead, 11th March 1995.

So here’s the Radiohead review I referred to in the previous post on Gene. You won’t catch Thom posing like this these days so lap it up Radiohead fans. Look at that belly button….phwooorrrrhhhh!

I don’t know how long or how many listens a typical record reviewer gets but probably not much. So fair play to Jennifer Nine for calling it on this. I resisted this record for so long. I just thought of Radiohead as major label bandwagon jumpers that had joined the party far too late. But by this time I’d started working and was subject to the communal musical tastes of my co-workers. So The Bends slowly ground me down, little by little, track by track.

These days I’ll begrudgingly admit to it being a quite good even though I still think the lyrics are impenetrable nonsense.

More C4 hypocrisy tonight with a teenager being cajoled into having vaginal cosmetic surgery in Embarrassing Teenage Bodies only a few weeks after Dawn Porter’s Lisa Roger’s C4 documentary/polemic about about the ‘growing epidemic’ and pointless stupidity of genital plastic surgery.

Thanks to Richard for leaving a comment pointing out my error in initially identifying Dawn Porter and not Lisa Rodgers as the presenter of The Perfect Vagina.
