Saw Radiohead last night. Amazing. How can these guys, playing (mostly) the same instruments as any rock band, create such sounds and stretch rock-n-roll almost beyond recognition? Each member of the band switched instruments at least once; these roadies work for their living! Also, when you listen to their albums filled with strange and wonderful sounds, it’s easy to get the impression that their recordings are crafted entirely through studio magic. Not so.
