Last night I went to the Echo with Tom to see the Section Quartet do an all-strings version of Radiohead's entire OK Computer album. Somehow I hadn't been to the Echo before, and it reminded me of Chicago bars. I don't know why. But I liked it.
And I loved the Section Quartet—they were bowing and plucking furiously. It helps that OK Computer is my favorite Radiohead album, and seems particularly well-suited to the strings treatment. They've done other rock songs, too, but I think Radiohead just works better than, say, Queens of the Stone Age (which I love, but must always contain guitar).
I don't know exactly what the Section Quartet/Greg Dulli connection is, but they've played with him a bunch and Twilight Singers was playing on the sound system before they went on stage.Posted by jjwiseman at October 07, 2005 11:22 AM
