Thom’s sweet vocal aside, it’s pretty dreadful

These days Radiohead sound like a ZX Spectrum falling down a spiral staircase, but back in 1986 they were sixth formers with a penchant for double denim and sax solos. This recently unearthed demo finds them channeling The Smiths’ ‘Some Girls…’. Thom’s sweet vocal aside, it’s pretty dreadful. There’s hope for crap baby bands everywhere.
