Well the really tall handsome one in the band is quite vocal about his love for the weed but...I think the best test would be for Steve to partake to see if he then likes The Radio Heads.

This was a long time ago, and may not reflect their current position on the subject.

High Times > RADIOHEAD ON POT

Radiohead on Pot
*A lost HIGH TIMES interview with bassist Colin Greenwood and guitarist Ed O'Brien. *(I bet a lot of HIGH TIMES interviews get lost.)

Interview by Darren Ressler
Tue, Jun 10, 2003

Radiohead first achieved mainstream attention in 1993, with their haunting hit single "Creep." In 1995 the band's two resident smokers sat down with HIGH TIMES for a brief interview which was never published -- until now.

HIGH TIMES: I understand that you did a bit of traveling before flying to New York City to do press?

COLIN GREENWOOD: We just got back two weeks ago from Amsterdam. I haven't smoked grass with any dedication in over a year, but that trip was a nice reintroduction to it.

ED O'BRIEN: In Britain, there are a lot of politicians who still get on their high horse about smoking marijuana, but the Dutch are wonderfully pragmatic about pot. They saw that decriminalizing it was the best thing, and hopefully other countries will follow suit.

HT: A lot of Brits mix tobacco with their ganja because of the poor quality. How do you rate pot from around the world?

EO: The first time I smoked weed in America was in Los Angeles. I think it was from Humbolt County, and it was a revelatory experience. Although that was unbelievable, in India you can score a thali--which is a handful. My sister and I once scored two thalis while we were on holiday, and we smoked it. A half-hour later, I had a cigarette and bam! I definitely discovered the hallucinatory aspects of marijuana that day.

HT: How does pot figure into Radiohead's music?

CG: Well, we're sort of puritanical in the studio, and we really don't smoke or drink anything while we're recording. I do enjoy how smoking can allow you to concentrate on the different sounds, but I save it for something that I do after the record is done to pick up on things.

HT: So when you recorded "Creep," you were all totally straight?

EO: [laughs] Well, I must admit that I wasn't. But to tell you the truth, it was a nightmare because you get this fear while you're putting down the track that you can't play. I learned a bit from that , but "Creep" came out fine anyway.

I feel awful for getting everyone's hopes up. They didn't play I Will. I don't know what I was doing, perhaps trying not to end up in the mud, but when the opening notes to a song started, I heard someone saying "I Will!". I briefly tuned out at that time because a fireworks competition had started next door to the park, and that became a mild distraction for some.

In fact, during Faust Arp the fireworks even distracted Thom, who had to restart the second verse. He was actually laughing when he restarted it.

Then, later on, he said: "Those are lovely fireworks, but why didn't they wait until the fucking end?!" We all laughed.

Anyway, sorry for the confusion. Also, people were smoking all around me, so maybe I inhaled too much of the weed.

Here's the correct setlist that I culled from 58hours.com:

15 Step
There There
Morning Bell
All I Need
My Iron Lung
Nude
Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
The Gloaming
The National Anthem
Fake Plastic Trees
Reckoner
Like Spinning Plates
Jigsaw Falling Into Place
Lucky
Optimistic
Idiotheque
Bodysnatchers

Encore:

Faust Arp
Videotape
Paranoid Android
Bangers 'n Mash
Karma Police

2nd Encore:

House of Cards
You and Whose Army?
Everything in its Right Place

Yeah, staying out past 10 and drinking anything that isn't juice or milk is illegal here.

I plan on being an enormous buzz kill for the Marthas.
