Doors open at 8pm and the main event kicks off at 8.30pm. See you there.

Album of the Month | Thursday 8th April 2021: RADIOHEAD ‘OK Computer’

April’s Album of the Month: Radiohead – OK Computer
Thursday 8th April, 8-10pm
STAY AT HOME – LISTEN ONLINE

Hello record clubbers, hope you’re all keeping well.

For our fourth ‘album of the month’ virtual session, Tom Lyon has chosen Radiohead’s OK Computer for us to listen to in full. Released in 1997, it was the band’s third album and quickly became a fixture of “greatest albums ever” lists where it has remained since. A departure from the ‘British Grunge’ of their earlier work (or that’s what their record company tried to position them as!), it has a more expansive sound with influences ranging from Miles Davis (specifically Bitches Brew), Krautrock legends Can to the soundtrack work of Ennio Morricone.

To help set the scene, check out the playlist which includes a track each from Radiohead’s albums to date (excepting our featured album), solo tracks and collaborations, songs that influenced the band, a smattering of covers (including a handful from the Easy All Star’s dub and reggae take on the OK Computer album) and the Talking Heads track that gave the band their name.

To take part in this virtual session, you must sign up here. More details below.
