Earlier this year, the Radiohead guitarist revealed who in the band is the “hardest”. “It’s not a very strong field.
“Having said that, Ed [O’Brien, guitarist] had boxing training – he was sparring with the head of our concert security on the last tour – so he’s probably quite tasty. But also the most placatory and pacific of all of us.”
“I reckon Philip [Selway, drummer] would be pretty handy if he had his wild up with someone,” Greenwood continued. “Unlikely, but still, don’t push him. The rest of us are… not a threat.”
He also spoke of the difference between creating soundtracks and making music with Radiohead. “The visual side of Radiohead comes from Thom and [artist] Stanley Donwood working together while we’re recording – often in the same room – on canvas, paper, computers. And it evolves while the recording evolves (and gets Thom occupied while the rest of us try out wayward ideas to dismay/delight him with). So no, I never think in visual terms when Radiohead are working.”
“But on soundtrack work, I do get motivated by the interesting syntheses between music and picture. When that stuff falls well together, it’s really exciting. Apart from anything, it makes the music so much better (and sometimes the picture, too).”
