DOWNLOAD - Radiohead (On A Friday) - On A Friday Demos I

The internet is going nuts with all these early Radiohead demos finding their way to the masses. Instead of listening to a couple of YouTube clips, download them here! Back when Radiohead first started they were sans Johnny Greenwood (I know he's in the above pic, tough pictures to come by) and called "On A Friday" because it was the only day they could get together and practice.

This is part I of II. Tomorrow I'll be posting the second set of demos, an 18 song set, with some duplicates but mostly not. This is a bit of a messy post because of the lack of information on these recordings. The two sets I have compiled don't really show up on any website with these particular track listings so... Just listen, enjoy and be amazed with what they've turned themselves into.

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for Part II!

Ant - Thanks my man. I appreciate your kindness always.

Over the weekend bits of a demo tape of a young Radiohead, still going by 'On A Friday' at the time, surfaced, leaving us with two tracks, and more suspected to come. The two recordings were made before Jonny Greenwood joined the band and when Thom Yorke was 18!

What I find amazing though, is how you can tell this is Radiohead in the making. The drum beat is classic Radiohead, Thom's voice and singing style has hardly changed, these guys had "it" from the beginning.
