Listen: Two Radiohead Demos From 1986 Without Jonny Greenwood

    Before we knew them as Radiohead, Thom Yorke and company were calling themselves On A Friday. And back in 1986, they were apparently ready to make some noise with a two-song demo of “Everybody Knows” and “Girl (In a Purple Dress.” This was before guitarist Jonny Greenwood joined the band, though in his place is a saxophonist who really dates both tracks considerably. Oh, the ’80s and the fascination with rock ‘n’ roll sax. Anyway,  you can stream them both below and get a feel for what Radiohead could have been like had things gone differently. [Poptart, What’s Our Mission?/CoS]
