Radiohead side project The Smile — featuring Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, plus drummer Tom Skinner — played a trio of livestreamed shows from London this weekend, performing new songs from their forthcoming LP and a smattering of Yorke solo songs and Radiohead cuts.
Perhaps most surprising, though, the group’s choice of cover song to close the second and third shows: “It’s Different For Girls,” Joe Jackson’s hit single off 1979’s I’m the Man.
