A new book, ‘Present Tense: A Radiohead Compendium’ compiles some of the best writing on the band from their earliest days, to heading into their fourth decade on our radars.

Edited by Rock’s Backpages co-founder Barney Hoskyns, the new book, ‘Present Tense: A Radiohead Conpendium’, is an “anthology of Radiohead, the most radical and fascinating rock band in modern music history”.

The book is a collection of the best writing, going back as far as when they were still called ‘On A Friday’, through to profiles by Mark Greif, Simon Reynolds, Will Self, and many others.

To sum up the books overall outlook, Barney Hosykyns describes the anthology as the bands ‘seriousness, emotional grandeur and willingness to stare humanity’s dystopian hi-tech future in the face’.
