Baker's Dozen

Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

8. RadioheadOK Computer

I loved The Bends so I bought this but I didn’t relate to it straight away. They played Glastonbury in 2017, and I remember sitting on my sofa watching it, and hearing all the crowd singing along to Karma Police and I thought, ‘Yeah, that’s a good album actually.’ It was just after losing the leadership to Corbyn, and I was planning leaving Parliament. It was a delayed love of OK Computer, which now for me is one of the all-time truly outstanding albums.

Selected in other Baker’s Dozens: , Meemo Comma, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Tom Chaplin, Geddy Lee, Alan Wilder
