THE FIRST TIME WITH... JONNY GREENWOOD (320kbs-m4a/128mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 16th June 2017
In a worldwide radio exclusive Radiohead's guitarist, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood speaks to Matt Everitt about his musical life, his influences, Radiohead's history and the band's new album A Moon Shaped Pool - the first time anyone from Radiohead has spoken to radio or press about the release.
Radiohead are one of, if not the most important band in the world right now - a band who have shifted the parameters of what a rock band is capable of, who in their 30 year career have continually pushed themselves into new musical directions and produced some of best albums of all time.
Jonny Greenwood is a hugely respected and innovative composer in his own right, performing around the world with the BBC Concert, Australian Chamber and London Contemporary Orchestras, and has created award winning scores for films including There Will Be Blood and The Master. He talks about the varied music that obsessed him growing up - from The Fall and New Order to classical composers like Krzysztof Penderecki who still impact on his work today. He looks back to Radiohead's early days and how they coped with the huge success that followed 1997's OK Computer, and their creative processes in the recording studio.
He also discusses his acclaimed film soundtracks, working with director Paul Thomas Anderson, how Radiohead missed out on doing a James Bond theme and the writing and recording of their new album A Moon Shaped Pool.
