Thursday 27 August 2009
As one of those shoegazing, introspective, less-intelligent-than-he-thinks-he-is teenagers who was just entering the sixth form when Radiohead's OK Computer was released in 1997, like half the population I have followed Thom Yorke et al's careers slightly too closely over the ensuing decade. Their "pay what you like" October 2007 album release, In Rainbows, was one of the deftest-timed two-fingered salutes to the music industry in recent memory, so you can't exactly knock their commitment to the cause, or indeed their artistry, but recently there has been something of a chink emerging in their armour of untouchability: Yorke's television appearances. Just recapping quickly, they've been of changeable quality, if that. There were the awkward video-link acceptance speeches throughout the 1990s, there was Grant Gee's heavily stylised 1998 rockumentary Meeting People Is Easy (where all that cinematographic overkill did a great job of substituting journalistic insight) and at least one teeth-grindingly strange turn on Jonathan Ross's couch where Yorke was so overcome with unease that he attempted to mimic Ross's Leytonstone accent (it's so bad that you want to tear your face off). That's not even going into the cameo he made on the 2007's Big Fat Quiz of the Year, in which his laugh was so, er, boundary-defying, that the studio's array of so-sarky panellists (Lily Allen, Russell Brand) were uncharacteristically dumbstruck into yet more embarrassed and pregnant silences.

Senior British politicians tell David Cameron: When dead children are being washed up on beaches – it's time to act
Jeremy Corbyn calls Osama bin Laden's killing a 'tragedy' - but was it taken out of context?
If these extraordinarily powerful images of a dead Syrian child washed up on a beach don't change Europe's attitude to refugees, what will?
If you're not already angry about the refugee crisis, here's a history lesson to remind you why you really should be
