Early Radiohead Demos Surface (Real Ones This Time!)

Radiohead, Music


A few days before Christmas, we brought you a supposedly unreleased song by Radiohead, sounding very much like the group’s The Bends-era music. It turned out to be fake. However, a few actual, unreleased demos from the band’s days under the name On A Friday have arrived, and these are most assuredly legit.

As Radiohead fan site At Ease reports, the new demo Fat Girl comes from the same 1986 demo from which two other songs appeared last November – and sounds even more like The Smiths. Listen to it below, as well as the previously-released On A Friday demos Everybody KnowsGirl (In The Purple Dress) and Fragile Friend:
