This is Heroes Week. Helpfully, two of my musical heroes, those being Weezer and Radiohead, are neatly combined in this little video, like a tasty treat of audio goodness. The aural equivalent of a Sherbet Fountain for your eardrums, this is Weezer covering Paranoid Android.
Somehow, watching a band you normally associate with comedy lyrics and surfer pop riffs do such a serious song makes me really appreciate their technical genius. Rivers Cuomo rules - watching him simultaneously bounce on a trampette, wear a cat hat and sing at Reading last year was one of the highlights of the festival.
Radiohead have had a special place in my heart for a long time; like a lot of others, I didn't understand them as a kid, with their dark, depressing lyrics, and Thom Yorke's unnervingly weird voice. But then I grew up and found myself in Victoria Park, watching them perform as the sun set it the distance, with thousands of people hanging off every note. I got it then.
Radiohead and their dangly lights at Victoria Park, June 2008. A beautiful day.
