Nikki Hoath is back with the second edition of her weekly Reading Randoms feature with some classics for you to listen to and enjoy. As the name suggests, all tracks are generated randomly from the bands that have played the Reading and Leeds Festival over the years, with a random “Curveball” thrown in for good measure from a band that has never played at the Festival.
Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich (Radiohead) morph an extended jam session with Flea (RHCP), Joey Waronker (REM) and Mark Refosco into a brand new album.
So time to find out who was the best in rock, indie, metal and punk, as well as finding out who our readers have labelled the worst band in the world right now.
Fancy seeing some 60s legends? It’ll only cost you between £100-400 quid! Okay, why not see an ethical band like Radiohead instead for…oh…£70…okay, maybe it’s time we ask how much is too much?
Reading kingpin Neil Pengelly may have hung up his boots, but it won’t stop us looking back at his greatest bookings.
