No Surprises - Radiohead - Classical guitar (João Fuss)

Guitarist João Fuss' beautiful arrangement of Radiohead's classic song from 1997.


If you’re a fan of the chirpy pop combo Radiohead (LOL) then you’ll no doubt be interested in a quite unique and beautiful take on one of their most famous songs.

‘No Surprises’ comes from the band’s iconic 1997 OK Computer album (which is currently back in public consciousness after their Glastonbury slot and a rather extensive reissue), but thanks to classical guitarist Joao Fuss it’s now something rather different.
