There are some bands that perform impeccably during a live show and others that falter rather than shine. If you read my coverage from Bonnaroo 2011, then you know some bands have a spectacular live persona. Radiohead is chief among them. They'd much rather play to an audience rather than live in a fan-less studio based setting. That's why recording a live album is the right move for some bands. Pink Floyd did it in Pompeii, and now Radiohead has done it for their album The King of Limbs and are calling it: Live From The Basement.

During this performance the alternative rock group projected their electronic soundscapes in a studio basement, playing a 55 minute set including a full rendition of their newest album plus some extra fan favorites. Today the band has released new footage from their live set. You can check out the song "Staircase" right here:

This snippet is quite amazing. Not only does the band keep their performance consistent with their normal live shows, the upbeat nature of their set is also displayed here in full force. Let’s just say that I’m quite anxious to view the rest of this video. Hopefully it will go down in history like Pink Floyd's Live In Pompeii. We can only hope.
