Radiohead played at the club twice on their way to worldwide success, firstly promoting their ‘Drill E.P.’ on Sunday 31st May 1992 and then ‘Anyone Can Play Guitar’ on Thursday 25th February 1993. The rest, they say, is history… They later played at a special gig, promoted by Paul Jackson (The Adelphi), at the larger venue, The Tower, in Hull.
Radiohead have toured the world for the past two decades and have headlined Glastonbury three times, but guitarist Ed O’Brien (aka EOB) believes their success owes everything to independent venues.
“We wouldn’t be anywhere without them,” he states. “They are more important than any arena or stadium – they are the lifeblood of live music.” He cites the Adelphi in Hull amongst his favourite venues, alongside the Jericho Tavern in his hometown of Oxford. BBC Radio 6
