With their third album, OK Computer, Radiohead emerged as one of the most popular and influential bands of the 1990s. Radiohead: Hysterical and Useless is the first book to disclose the full history of the band - its origins in Oxford, where the band were childhood friends, the breakthrough single Creep , the second, multi-platinum album The Bends and the unusual recording sessions for OK Computer. In addition to covering Kid A, Amnesiac and Hail To The Thief, Clarke also examines the psyche and personal demons of the enigmatic Thom Yorke, his growing political activism and the genesis of the band s latest album.
