In 2017, I got in touch with a music pal I hadn't spoken to in a while, Dorian Cloudsley (Fat-Suit), with a nascent idea for a jazz-Radiohead crossover project. Between us, that idea turned into 3-time sell-out show 'Like A Cat Tied to a Stick: Radiohead Re-imagined' featuring a ten-piece band of incredible musicians from Glasgow's vibrant contemporary jazz scene. Putting our own genre-blurring spin on the music of a band we hold very close to our hearts, we are following in the footsteps of modern jazz giants such as Brad Meldhau, Christian Scott, Robert Glasper and the Bad Plus, who have all turned to Radiohead for inspiration time and again.
We are currently working on Volume 2.
"This is how you cover a band...The arrangements of the pieces were outstanding, playing into each member of the ensemble’s strengths...If this Radiohead reimagining proves one thing it’s that passionate people, who share the same love for music and inspirations, can translate that energy and transform it into something unique." - Rowan Smith, lydmag.com
