But drummer Phil Selway is on the phone from New York, bubbling over with enthusiasm about the band's Australian tour in April.
For Selway and his band-mates, it's a chance to showcase the range of Radiohead material from across their major albums - ranging from their 1997 smash hit OK Computer, the follow-up releases Kid A and Amnesia (which divided critics) and their classic second album, The Bends, which was released eight years ago.
Selway admits the pressures of producing an album after OK Computer were immense - so intense that the making of Kid A and the rapid follow-up Amnesia was a troubling period for the band.

All the members were by this point at different Universities around the country, but reconvened over the summer, with the exception of Phil who was in Ireland, although at this time the band did not have a settled name, having dropped On A Friday, but not come up with anything better.
The band's working title was 'Shindig', which survived long enough for Thom to spray paint it on his acoustic guitar case, but by the time of their next 'proper' demo, they had reverted to On A Friday.
When Phil returned the band recorded another demo track in rehearsal, 'What's That You See?', significant because it was the first time Jonny moved from keyboards to guitar.

But in getting through that difficult time, they were also able to learn a valuable lesson: difficult as it may be, to function properly and to make music for the sheer sake of making music, other people’s expectations have to be ignored.
In fact, the band’s approach to making Hail To The Thief was so drastically different from those last sessions in the studio that it was able to record the album much faster this time, with the added relief of no longer having to worry about being excessively meticulous.
Although the record was recorded in a relatively short time compared to the last releases, however, it was hardly just thrown together.

Yorke, guitarist Ed O'Brien, drummer Phil Selway, bassist Colin Greenwood and guitarist Jonny Greenwood, Colin's younger brother, had been touring Europe and America for seven months on behalf of their third album, OK Computer.
Selway, O'Brien and the Greenwoods pick up on that electricity, turning the liquid hum of Amnesiac's "Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box" into surging funk, a 1970s German-rock groove shuddering with Rolling Stones-guitar clang.
Radiohead issued their first record, the EP Drill, in 1992, but they have been a band since the mid-1980s, when they began writing and rehearsing together as students at Abingdon under the awkward name On a Friday.

Along with Thom Yorke's inimitable vocals, Jonny Greenwood's wide array of unconventional sonic textures helped to define Radiohead's distinctive sound and push the boundaries of their music into unusual and decidedly non-rock directions.
Guitarist Ed O'Brien and drummer Phil Selway were soon admitted into the fold, and the new band adopted the moniker On a Friday (in reference to the day of the week they would routinely get together and practice).
Jonny Greenwood, who was a couple of years younger than the other four, repeatedly asked to play with the group; he was finally invited to play harmonica with On a Friday at a 1987 gig at the Jericho Tavern in Oxford.
