The Japanese Radiohead

In this episode of My Hero, we travel to Yokohama to meet the Radiohead imitators who've taken the word "tribute" to a whole new level.

As the country that created karaoke, you can be sure that the Japanese will take musical mimickery to the next level. In My Hero: The Japanese Radiohead, we'll get exclusive access to this incredible world of ultra tribute bands, where every guitar lick, drum roll and facial expression is obsessively copied down to the last detail. But even that's not enough for Yokohama's version of Radiohead. In the ultimate act of tribute band dedication, they teamed up with a gifted craftsman to make a rare, vintage keyboard for Johnny Greenwood to perform with at Glastonbury. This is one of a series of three extraordinary stories of dedication from the tribute acts for Glastonbury's headliners: The Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran and Radiohead.
