I have been watching recent discussions which touch on Radiohead and thought I would mention/ask why of all the major bands of the last decade they have been singled out by a new generation of jazz musicians looking for material to cover.
Brad Meldhu - Paranoid Android, Everthing In Its Right Place
Jamie Cullum - High and Dry
Christopher O'Riley - Two albums of the stuff
Why them...and by the way, original & intelligent answers please and not just, 'cos they are the best band in the world and they write deadly tunes'. That is taken as read.
