From Abingdon, Oxfordshire, Radiohead are one of the most revered bands ever to come out of England, with their 'OK Computer' album often topping 'greatest albums' polls.

Radiohead's first hit single, the powerful 'Creep', was released in 1992, and made the UK top ten singles chart. Their debut album, 'Pablo Honey', was released in 1993. Radiohead's next two albums - 'The Bends (1995)' and 'OK Computer (1997)' - cemented the band's place among the most original and gifted rock groups of all-time.

In recent years Radiohead have embraced the internet, and took the bold step of releasing their seventh studio album, 'In Rainbows', initially as a download - with fans paying what they thought appropriate. Though seen by some at the time as foolhardy, it's now been seen as a commercial success, as well as enhancing the band's altruistic credentials.

For an example of what Radiohead stand for, then 'Fitter Happier' from 'OK Computer' would be the track of choice. In an age where it's the aim of so many to be famous for just being famous, Radiohead are the antithesis of such sad ambition.
