Subterranean Homesick Dylan

July 26, 2012 9:41 AM

It's well known that Radiohead went to Bob Dylan for inspiration on the title of Subterranean Homesick Alien; it's less well known that they actually lifted the song structure and lyrics themselves from this rare demo recording.

One of those ideas that kept knocking around but I hadn't bothered to make happen. Knocked it out quick-like this morning to exorcise that whole "I really oughta..." ghost.

Damn if that ain't as good a Dylan tribute as I have ever heard.
