The Hold Steady: ‘Radiohead have lost the plot’

Band criticise Oxford quintet's pay what you want plan

The Hold Steady‘s guitarist Tad Kubler has slammed Radiohead‘s revoluntionary pay what you want plan for their last album ‘In Rainbows’.

The guitarist also criticised the band’s experimental musical approach.

“I think they’ve lost the plot,” he said. “What are they doing? Where are they going? What’s happening? I don’t get it any more. They lost me.

“I still appreciate what they’re doing, or what they’re trying to do. But I think they’re trying too hard not to be Radiohead. That seems a little ridiculous to me.”

“I like them as a rock band, all the buttons and sequencing and stuff like that I don’t really care for. I’m a fan of rock music and what they’re doing now I don’t think is very good.”

Kubler also said Muse “don’t do it for me” but he praised Oasis.

He told BBC 6 Music: “I love Oasis. I love them. I think that what they do is earnest. I think it’s honest.”
