I have a tendency to talk about the 1990s with some nostalgia. ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ is a touchstone for those memories. Radiohead was at risk of being branded a one-hit wonder after the immense success of the single ‘Creep’ – a grungy calling card. Perhaps it bred resentment, because the band came out fighting with a staggering retort – the epic The Bends. ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ is the torch song at the centre of the album. Many listened, enjoyed and did something about it. Coldplay formed a year later. Have a great weekend.
