The (somewhat) Holy Grail... Radiohead @ Lollapalooza

So, somehow the magical sounds of the best band in the universe ended up on my iPod! Wonder how that happened! I don't know... I mean I was standing there watching it and thinking back to when I first saw them with R.E.M. in 1995 (or so) and being blown away. The previously posted video (about two or three posts back) of them playing while the fireworks were going off was so emotionally engaging... I held my wifes hand, watching these explosions in the sky, while they played "Fake Plastic Trees" and felt like the world was perfect. In fact why don't you peep this video I just found...

And closer up...

And focusing on the fireworks... I can't stress how awesome this was...

Anyway... this little recording that 'swim' made at Lollapalooza isn't the BEST quality out there... lots of bass thuds that distort the sound (take that all you people who said it was too quiet!)... if any of you are real smart and can correct that let me know... otherwise you have a somewhat distorted first 30 minutes of the best concert of the year. It's worth the download, I think. If you have better copies hit me up on my email!


EDIT: Now that the download has probably run out anyway... I found that Ocstwosway actually had a good rip of the XFM broadcast of Radiohead broken into three archives on his site! Here's all that jazz... his site is linked to the right...
