Topping the bill on the first day was Radiohead, fresh from their show at Glastonbury, who celebrated 20 years since the release of their defining album OK Computer with a crowd-pleasing set of old classics mingled with their newer material. Although their two and a half hour performance lost some of its energy in the middle, the band wisely book-ended the show with a series of songs from their 1997 album, including “Let Down”, “Lucky” and “Paranoid Android”. One of the most memorable moments was the world-weary “No Surprises”, with the band’s frontman Thom Yorke prompting cheers from the crowd with the line: “Bring down the Government / They don’t, they don’t speak for us”. Long-term fans of the band will have been disappointed that their set list largely passed over their first two albums (there was no “Creep” unlike Glastonbury) and also at the lack of audience interaction, with Yorke and co only mumbling a few words of thanks in between songs. But having seen Radiohead round off their first show in Scotland for almost a decade with “Karma Police”, the 35,000 or so fans who stayed to hear them left satisfied and still singing the song’s final refrain: “For a minute there, I lost myself.”
