It pays to have a famous rock star as your neighbour, since you never know when they’ll show up and perform at your house. As reported by a user on Reddit this past weekend, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke performed an impromptu set at his Oxford neighbour’s garden party, presumably a celebratory event thrown for Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday.
The Reddit user’s dad had apparently sent him a text message that said he was “in Oxford at [a] garden party with Suzie’s neighbours, about to hear entertainment from neighbour Tom York [sic] of Radiohead!”
According to the user, Yorke performed a 30-minute set that included Radiohead songs “Desert Island Disk,” “Reckoner,” “I Might Be Wrong” and “No Surprises.” He also uploaded a photo of Yorke sitting and performing in the garden.
In other Radiohead news, the band will host a global streaming event called Live From a Moon Shaped Pool this Friday, June 17. According to the band’s website, this will be “an exclusive day-long audio stream from the band, competitions, instructional artworks and more,” and will be taking place at record stores around the world (locations are listed on Radiohead's site).
