The Bends-era Radiohead was a guitar-savvy, popular, nearly pop music group, full with the Brit-rock sound of the 1995 days. One of the songs that stands out most on The Bends is "Street Spirit (Fade Out)"- A wonderful guitar riffed, amazing vocals, bass and drums song. This single not only includes that, but some wonderful other B-Sides to go along with it.
"Talk Show Host" (also on the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack) is very unlike anything Radiohead has ever done, on any album, B-Side, live or anywhere else, which may be noticed that it appeared on Romeo and Juliet in 1995. Quite beautiful, slow and very hushed besides from some lovely guitar and soft drums. Thom's voice is really the triumph of this song. Bass only appears in the pre-chorus and is only a few notes.
"Bishop's Robes" is also very odd for Radiohead. It sounds like their playing a real Brit-rock song for 1995 (with other influences of course). Fairly good, and again, Thom's voice is really amazing in this song. You can tell in this song that they were beginning to transform into the state that they were in OK Computer, because of some electronica tinged effects.
Excellent single for any one who likes Radiohead, this is a good transition from The Bends to OK Computer, but I know that this will be a little addition to your Radiohead collection for most people, and what a welcome addition it is!

Street Spirt (Fade Out): A true Radiohead classic. If you haven't heard this song, you're really missing out. Easily one of the ten best songs the band has ever done. I'm don't think it needs to be described; just know that it's amazing. 5/5
Talk Show Host: Another classic. Driving repetition of a guitar riff until it climaxes, complimented by eerie vocals and lyrics. This one pops up at live shows more often than Street Spirt does, surprisingly, so there are various live versions floating around on the net that are much better than the recorded one. Was featured in the modern remake of Romeo and Juliet.
Bishop's Robes: This would have fit nicely onto OK Computer. A softer song that focuses more on aural landscapes than anything. Very emotional and very good. 5/5
This is easily the best single Radiohead ever released.

If you have and love OKComputer, the Airbag EP, and Kid A, I guarantee that you'll find this single indispensable. The title track is one of the best songs on The Bends, but the b-sides are the true classics here. "Talk Show Host" is dark funk oddness, indescribably ominous and threatening. "Bishop's Robes" is a sad, quiet, majestic denunciation of authority. Together, they form a pathway to the music that would come to the fore on Kid A: heavy emphasis on unique drums, keyboards, and bass; vocals darker than anything from The Bends; and a general emphasis on instrumentation and production a good five years ahead of its time for the band. Definitely worth buying.

This is an excellent single by Radiohead. Imports are pricey but with this one you get three unreleased songs that are all very good. The track listing is 1)Street Spirit 2) Bishops Robes 3) Talk Show Host and 4) Mollasses. All of these songs are really good with Talk Show Host as the standout. If it looks familiar it's becuase it was on the Romeo & Juliet soundtrack. It is a different and better version, however. The only disadvantage with some of these songs is overlap with other singles as they appear in various groups on a few different ones. But overall a worthy purchase
