Not many people know this, but I used to have taste in music. The first ever gig I went to was Radiohead in the RDS when I was 13 years old. Yeah forget Boyzone, Take That, Blur or Oasis – I was into Radiohead and proud.

But then as I got older, we both changed and the love affair was over…  The more mainstream I became, the less mainstream they did and we just didn’t click anymore. Then nearly 10 years after I saw them for the first time in the RDS, I went along to Marley Park to rekindle the memories.

They broke my heart.

Not one – not a single one – of their old tunes did they play. Notta one. I felt cheated and like a girl who’d gained weight and ran into an old boyfriend who was now beautiful and trendy and in a totally different league.

Which is why I didn’t even go near ‘In Rainbows’, I couldn’t take the risk.

But then, just the other night, whilst flicking randomly through the channels, I saw them on Jools Holland, and couldn’t resist. And I loved it!  I don’t know what it means though – have I gotten taste again or are they just getting worse? Who knows. All I know is I’m happy to have them back in my lives again. At least until the next album anyway.
