Description

Radiohead may be one of the world's most famous bands, but the five members give very little away about themselves. You've heard their music, now read about their humble beginnings, their rocket to stardom and their conquering of the music industry with Exit Music: The Story Of Radiohead.

Radiohead are one of the biggest bands on the planet. They burst onto the scene with their story of teenage angst 'Creep', and have refused to conform to traditional popular music standards ever since. Combining elements of jazz music, electronica, classical composition and an impeccable sense of harmony and melody, Radiohead have defied convention to produce some truly incredible music. Adding to the mythos, the band themselves are elusive outsiders with attitude, they are still more likely to tidy their hotel room than trash it, and few journalists have been able to get close to Thom Yorke, Ed O'Brien, Colin Greenwood, Phil Selway and Jonny Greenwood... until now.

Author Mac Randall is the East Coast editor of Launch and was one of only two American journalists present for the launch of the legendary OK Computer in Barcelona, Spain. He has interviewed all the band members and now, in Exit Music: The Radiohead Story, he has written the definitive book about Radiohead. Not just a mere biography, you can tell Randall is a true fan of the band as his analyses of each song right up to 2007's In Rainbows is a fascinating take on the musicality and history of their renowned compositions.

The band that was born of the "culture of complaint" - as Thom Yorke once called it - is exposed as a unique exception to the conventional rules of rock stardom. Their beginnings, their personal style, their sheer musical brilliance and their shifting ambitions are all explored in the intimate Exit Music: The Story Of Radiohead.
