 Epinions.com - "That's Not The Album, It's The Demos" Radiohead: Hail to the Thief Demos.
Accompanied by Colin Greenwood and Selway’s slow rhythm, Yorke sings, “I sail to the moon/I spoke too soon/And how much did it cost/I was dropped from the moonbeam/And sailed on shooting stars” with his seductive, falsetto vocals.
Led by Selway’s smooth, bass-pounding drums and Colin Greenwood’s throbbing bass lines, the song is a return to the world of guitar rock as O’Brien and Jonny Greenwood play an array of droning, melodic guitar riffs that are menacing in its performance.
With Jonny Greenwood leading with his melodic guitar tracks, Yorke sings, “Feel it, why so green/And lonely (repeat 3 times)/Heaven sent you/To me (repeat 3 times)/We are accidents, waiting, waiting to happen/(repeat line)” as the song’s tempo intensifies a bit led by Jonny Greenwood playing a blistering, wailing guitar solo.

 Jonny Greenwood - Free Music Downloads, Videos, Lyrics, CDs, MP3s, Bio, Merchandise and Links
Although most people's initial musical exposure to Jonny Greenwood came via his hugely distorted guitar crunches on Radiohead's breakthrough single "Creep," Greenwood (not to be confused with his older brother/bass-playing bandmate Colin Greenwood) could be more appropriately described as Radiohead's jack-of-all-trades -- a multi-instrumentalist who is as comfortable playing..
Beginning immediately with the opening atonal "Airbag" riff, Greenwood redefined what a guitar could sound like, whether it was the distant, chiming gull-cries of "Subterranean Homesick Alien" (which succeeds admirably in its attempt to recreate Miles Davis' Bitches Brew trumpet tone) or the digital meltdown near the end of "Paranoid Android."
On the ensuing North American tour, however, Greenwood's dissatisfaction with playing strictly guitar-oriented music reached its zenith -- a feeling that was carried over into the recording studio following the tour's completion.

The accepted explanation is that the music press has not forgiven the band for slipping by unnoticed, before any of the mags could "discover" this "next big thing." By the time the press woke up to Radiohead's brilliance, it was too late.
When the Greenwood brothers, with drummer Phil Selway, discussed OK Computer with me before the recent Toronto show, the subject of the British press brought out minor criticisms from the musicians, mixed with a distinct "Rule, Brittania" pride.
Colin Greenwood credits Bends producer John Leckie with providing the education the young band needed to take charge.

 Radiohead
Radiohead were formed in the mid-Eighties at Abingdon School, a boys-only public school located just outside the city of Oxford, which drummer Phil Selway, guitarist Ed O'Brien, guitarist/vocalist Thom Yorke, bassist Colin Greenwood and Colin's brother Jonny all attended.
Radiohead refused to create a stylistic sequel to OK Computer, opting for a minimalist and textured style featuring less overt guitar and more diverse instrumentation, such as the ondes martenot, electronic beats, strings, and jazz horns, but retaining some of the lyrical and musical hooks of their earlier records.
In 2005 Greenwood, along with Radiohead drummer Phil Selway, appeared in the film of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as part of a fictional band fronted by Pulp's Jarvis Cocker; they recorded several songs available on the soundtrack.

Apart from interviews with Thom and Colin, this film is nothing but much-too-long shots of mindless, useless imagery (think Japanese people in escalators for 5 minutes straight with a distorted "Climbing Up the Walls" playing in the background, or something of the sort).
At times, the background music overpowers the speaker and most of the backstage scenes seem unneccessary, rather dull, actually.
