Ball Park Music has taken over ‘Paranoid Android’ by Radiohead for triple j‘s Like A Version today (October 23).
The classic track was originally released as the lead single from Radiohead’s 1997 album, “Ok Computer”.
Watch Ball Park’s rendition below:
After the band’s performance, frontman Sam Cromack detailed his long-standing relationship with the song.
âMe and my friend in school, we learned all the guitar solos and we were just trying to learn the chords and stuff,â Cromack recalls.
“To be honest it was a dream come true to finally do it, I felt like I was 15 again, back in my buddy’s room to check out Radiohead.”
The cover of Ball Park was one of the most literal renditions to be performed in the Like A Version studio this year.
Cromack explained that his band “isn’t really interested in whole new re-imaginations of songs unless they naturally evolve that way.”
Today marked Ball Park Music‘s fourth “Like A Version” tour. They had already covered “My Happiness” by Powderfinger in 2017, “Diane Young” by Vampire Weekend in 2014 and “Do You Realize ?? by The Flaming Lips in 2012.
As usual, Ball Park Music also performed an original as part of its appearance on the segment. The band performed their latest single, ‘Cherub’, which hit streaming services in August.
The band’s appearance on the segment coincides with the release of their self-titled album, released today. âBall Park Musicâ includes previously released singles âCherubâ, âSpark Up! “And” Day and age “.
