Radiohead live at the Oxford Apollo, 25th February 1995

David Bennun reviews Radiohead live at Oxford Apollo. Taken from Melody Maker, 25th February 1995

Love this photo. It’s basically Thom on his vinegar strokes isn’t it? Or maybe he’s just imagining making love to a beautiful women. If you’ve been paying attention you’ll remember that he’s never met a beautiful woman he’s liked.

Thinking of famous people having sex reminds me of this very funny blog – Filthy Fan Fiction – I’ve stumbled across recently. There’s not that much there yet but the Pauline Quirke set piece is a gem. I’m gonna write and request one for Thom Yorke.

Also justly forgotten trustafarians, Powder, live at the Dublin Castle reviewed by Jennifer Nine.

Powder are now best known for lead singer Pearl Lowe’s (along with husband Supergrass drummer, Danny Goffey) famous drug fuelled, wife swapping exploits with the ‘great and good’ of Primrose Hill. There’s a full article about it here if by some strange chance you’ve not heard about this before under the headline “Cocaine was served on trays, but you had to leave your soul at the door”. Nice.

I’ve skimmed through it so you don’t have to, and this [cough] pearl of a quote from Pearl caught my eye – “I think we were a bit before our time, and we got roped into Britpop when we were actually rock.”

No Pearl, you just weren’t very good.
