Radiohead swap music instruments for DJ equipment
Although Radiohead's so-called secret show at Glastonbury Festival went down a storm, it was their subsequent DJ set that captivated revellers until the small hours of the morning.
Although they hadn't been officially declared as part of the roster of musicians playing over the weekend, the internet had been buzzing with rumours that they were playing.
Frontman Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich played an epic 17-track DJ set in the Shangri-La area of the festival.
Interestingly, the alternative rock band played a set that was largely hip-hop and dubstep music.
On the band's official website, Yorke said that away from the "media circus" on other side of the valley, the "other Glastonbury happened".
He said: "The one you aren't reading much about, the one they couldn't hang. The fun, chilled out and insane one. The one that couldn't give a flying toss who you are really. The one we went for."
DJing is something singer-songwriter Yorke is increasingly becoming interested in. Although he hasn't quite got a residency yet, he is regularly seen mixing up urban beats at the Low End Theory Club in Los Angeles.
