When English Alt-Rockers RADIOHEAD released their 3rd studio album OK COMPUTER in 1997, “Britpop” saturated the airwaves and stages of the commercial music scene “Across the Pond”, and here in “The Colonies”. Diverging from the radio-suitable guitar driven sound of their previous recording efforts, the innovative quintet blazed a trail trodden by every aspiring Indie Rocker since. Expanding an organically mechanical sound achieved by unique instrumentation, starkly futuristic lyrical content, and intense studio experimentation, Radiohead defied expectations of fans, critics, and record label projections with the release of OK COMPUTER surpassing the popularity and profitability of all the band’s previous studio efforts. Now a musical superpower, Radiohead continues to influence and inspire musicians, artists, and listeners of all tastes, and so we examine their institution and evolution. This is RADIOHEAD’s OK COMPUTER.
