Tradiohead take the songs of Radiohead and re-imagine them using traditional instruments. They also play the songs in an Irish traditional music style. It works surprisingly well.
Tradiohead are Jimi McDonnell on vocals, Philip Fogarty on accordion and bodhrán, Pat Hargan on guitar and Michael Chang on violin, viola and mandolin.
The band say it all started out as a pun but “soon turned into a re-working of some of the most lauded songs in popular music”. The unlikely meeting of Radiohead and some gems from the Irish trad catalogue now has a name.
The quartet play songs from classic albums like ‘The Bends’, ‘OK Computer’ and ‘Kid A’, as well as more recent Radiohead records like ‘Hail To The Thief’ and ‘In Rainbows’.
