"Mitsi has consented to a simple experiment: We will play a career-spanning selection of Radiohead songs; the kids, equipped with Sharpies and blank sheets of paper, will simply draw whatever the music suggests to them. We don't even give them the name of the band. They don't know anything about Radiohead, the mountain of criticism, the mythology. Their thoughts and interpretations are pure, unsullied, literally unique.

They are also extremely bizarre..."

Kickass! I'd love to see the same class do an interpretation of Björk. I also think Radiohead should definitely use the example you've picked out for their next cover - at least a single or something.

ROCK!
