Radiohead Close Reading Festival 2009

READING, UK (VIP NEWS) — In a festival heavy on over-familiar or unimpressive bands, it was left to last night's closing act Radiohead to wrong-foot everyone.

As the band walked onto the stage, a relaxed-looking Thom Yorke shouted "Wassap!" into his mic, drawing huge cheers from the audience.

The group aired classic tracks including 'Just', 'Karma Police' and 'Idioteque', alongside several songs from last album 'In Rainbows', such as 'Jigsaw Falling Into Place' and '15 Step'.

Before playing 'Bodysnatchers', Yorke informed the audience that bassist Colin Greenwood was having technical difficulties.

"Colin's bass pedal just went chuuk," he said, mimicking a guitar pedal blowing up.

However, the band continued for the remainder of their set without problems, though Yorke kept the chat to a minimal level between songs.

The band ended their set with a blistering version of their 1997 anthem 'Paranoid Android', followed by an effect-laden 'Everything In Its Right Place'. –According to NME
