  1. In the early 90s, I saw an ad in a local free paper for buttons and stickers for a new band, so I mailed in for mine. Turns out it was Radiohead promoting the single “I’m A Creep”. Still have that button around here somewhere…

  2. Which one do you think is the Iron Maiden fan?

  8. Tilda Swinton was in Radiohead in the late 80s?

    The more you know…

    I’ll be seeing this film, it looks good. I used to love a lot of these bands (Ride and Swervedriver in particular; the latter I didn’t even know were from Oxford) and I moved to Oxford for work a few years ago. By the time I was living in OX4 though the local music scene had dwindled to almost nothing, although I did hear some interesting sounds coming from the odd garage in the neighbourhood.
    I *did* help design a house for Gaz Coombes’ (Supergrass) dad, and I once saw the guy from Ride who’s now in Oasis in WH Smith’s, so there’s that…
