UA's Marching Band Does Radiohead—Again

Posted By on Thu, Aug 16, 2012 at 2:00 PM

Just saw this video from the Pride of Arizona roll across my Facebook feed, and I'm already into it.

If you're unfamiliar with the tune, it's Radiohead's 15 Step, off of their In Rainbows album.

For what it's worth, this isn't the first time that the Pride (tagline: "The World's First Alternative Music Marching Band") has based a show around Radiohead, doing so in 2006, and certainly not the first time they've done something you'd hear on alt-rock radio, with a Red Hot Chili Peppers show back in 1996.

Keep in mind, this is an early play-through, as they're still subjecting their bodies to the rigors of UA band camp—considering the full days of running through 100 degree heat and 54% humidity, I'll overlook any lack of crispness in that video.

It's good stuff with great potential. As a former band geek and member of the PoA, I might head to a UA football game and leave after halftime this year.

Just like most of the student section. Sorry, Rich Rodriguez.
