While bandmate Thom Yorke is busy parading with Atoms for Peace, Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood makes ends meet performing solo at the high-profile Dries Van Noten runway show during Paris Fashion Week.
It was a somewhat surreal display. Scores of models lined up along the back wall of a giant industrial warehouse, sentinels facing off against a crowded row of bleachers. In the center, illuminated by a single spotlight, Greenwood bobbed with his bass, spitting a skeletal soundtrack while models slinked past. A Style.com writeup detailed:
Inspired by his favorite piece from the collection, which featured a cunning use of the barbed wire embroidery, he adapted the bass line from the Radiohead song “My Iron Lung.”
