Number 19: Radiohead-Staircase
When Radiohead released their eight studio album The King Of Limbs in February, little did we know that the best track they put out wouldn’t be from it. Staircase was left off TKOL but came to everyone’s attention when recorded during the bands ‘Live From The Basement’ performance. Quite different to the mostly electronic record it was left off, ‘Staircase’ is a synth-rock gem with snappy guitar riffs and intricate basslines. The synths give the track a powerful atmosphere.
