THE TRUTH ABOUT RADIOHEAD'S GUITARIST IS UNBELIEVABLE

The [a]Unbelievable Truth[/a]'s first-ever song, with [b]Jonny Greenwood[/b] on guitar, can be downloaded now...

The first ever Unbelievable Truth song, featuring Radiohead guitarist JONNY GREENWOOD, has surfaced, and is available to download via the band's website.

The track, called 'Sharing', is available for download on www.unbelievable-truth.com and was recorded in 1993. It was written by the band's founding member, Thom Yorke's brother Andy, and Greenwood provides electric guitar.

Speaking about the track, drummer Nigel Powell said: "This was the first song we ever recorded, back in 1993, and I think the first Andy wrote. It was recorded in my bedroom, and at the time we were trying to carve a sound like Throwing Muses, or somesuch other jagged Americana.

"The electric part was added by Jonny Greenwood a little while later...It was on the first demos we sent out, but we'd quickly begun moving in a more stripped back acoustic direction, so this song fell from grace quickly."
