Way Back Wednesday

Ten years ago, there was nothing more important to me than playing Fake Plastic Trees. I played it all the damn time. It didn't matter that I couldn't hit the notes, or really strum properly - all that mattered was I had a guitar and was annoying everyone within ear shot.

As a fitting tribute to that moment of Thomas history, here are Thom Yorke and Johhny Greenwood performing said song at KOKO in Camden as a benefit for Friends of the Earth. Well worth the watch just to see Johnny do what Johnny does best - namely weird shit on the guitar.

A Tribe Called Quest represent represent. The ladies sweat the style...like the squirrels sweat the nuts. I take it as a sign of my continuing maturity that I now recognize the Quest as one of the greatest musical groups of all time. Just try and listen to these songs without bobbing your head.

And while you're at, get nice and acquainted with the Quest produced Fu Schnickens. Don't know the Fu? Then you're not a true Fuschnick.

If you don't like this song, you probably voted for Harper. And you eat babies. I'm just saying.
