Have you ever read an article and come across a detail which made you say “Ahhhhhh!” out loud? That’s what just happened to me about halfway through this Stereogum interview with Radiohead drummer, Phil Selway.
Phil was talking to Stereogum to mark the 20th Anniversary of ‘The Bends’ (Amazon / iTunes / Spotify), describing the process of recording the album and how the music they made reflected the emotional moment of the band’s development.
The detail that made me involuntarily vocalize? He mentioned that Thom Yorke recorded the soaring main vocal track for “Fake Plastic Trees” after returning from a Jeff Buckley show, full of inspiration.
