My Hero: The Japanese Radiohead
In this episode of My Hero we travel to Japan to meet the ultimate Radiohead tribute band.
It’s the country that gave us karaoke, so Japan knows how to take musical imitation to a whole new level. In My Hero: The Japanese Radiohead, we’ll get exclusive access to this obsessive world of the ultra tribute band, where every guitar lick, drum roll and facial expression is obsessively copied down to the last detail.
But even that’s not enough for Yokohama’s version of Radiohead, because they’ve decided to make rare, vintage keyboards for Johnny Greenwood to play on stage at Glastonbury as the ultimate act of adulation.
This is one of a series of three extraordinary stories of the obsessive dedication of the tribute bands for Glastonbury’s headliners; Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran and Radiohead.
