The new Radiohead Public Library is now open

Radiohead isn’t a band that likes to reflect on the past much, preferring to concentrate on what’s still ahead. But with such a massive global fanbase interested in the minutiae of the group, Radiohead has launched an online public library featuring all sorts of things from the band’s history.

Like what?

  • Songs previously not available on streaming services (including the Drill EP from 1992)
  • Music videos
  • Live TV performances (The Top of the Pops appearance performing “Creep” is especially funny.)
  • Various radio appearances
  • Artwork
  • Out-of-print t-shirts from various eras
  • Links to all the the band’s w.a.s.te. quarterly newsletters
  • Links back to all the weird iterations of Radiohead’s previous websites.

To get involved, all you have to is visit the site and create a downloadable library card. The QR code will take you to the website. From there, fill yer boots.

All five members of the band will take turns acting as curators, so who knows what’s going to pop up?
