|1015 - What's a Radiohead?|
One of the neat things about Technorati is that they can watch all of the weblogs they index for references to a site or URL, and put pointers to those references out to an RSS feed. This, in turn, can be set up as a LiveJournal syndication.
I set one of these up to watch for links to tronguy.net at tronguynetlinks. Last night, an entry wound up there from tucows.net developer Joey deVilla's weblog. (I don't know why, but the link fed from Technorati is incorrect; the link above points to the right entry.) DeVilla's a Nifty Guest at Penguicon (which I'm not, sniff). His main panel is opposite mine (which is now schedued tor 2-3 PM Sunday), and he says that that's "like having your band play the same night as Radiohead".
I don't know if that's a bug or a feature.
current mood: curious
Radiohead is a supremely talented modern rock band.
Hrm. I was trying to find a useful link for you, but they seem to have a very silly website. But here's MTV's link on them http://www.mtv.com/bands/az/radiohead/artist.jhtml
for what it's worth.
Another way to put what he's saying is, "like having your band play the same night as the Beatles." But in modern terms. *grin*
Okkay, so I'm an old fart. Thanks for putting in terms even I can get. :-)
NO Problem! *grin*
Even though it's irrelevant, if you want to actually hear some Radiohead, I suggest "Street Spirit (Fade Out)", or the entirity of the album "OK Computer."
There are lots of Radiohead songs that anybody can get into, but there's also lots that you've got to have already aquired a taste for.
To me, Radiohead has always been a song by Talking Heads, on their "True Stories" album. I guess another band came along later and named themselves after it. :}
