Radiohead: Some amusing tit-fot-tattery

To mark Radiohead's launch of a newspaper with the King Of Limbs album, The Guardian staff have hit back by forming a band. The Radio Eds have covered Creep, featuring Tim Dowling's oft-mentioned banjo skills (his wife might be right) and - yes - Alan Rusbridger on keyboards.

So fucking special.

To help you with the pub quiz, here's the full line-up:
Lead vocals: Ed Vulliamy, Guardian and Observer writer
Keyboard: Alan Rusbridger, editor-in-chief, Guardian News & Media
Guitars: Jon Dennis, multimedia production manager; Mark Rice-Oxley, Guardian assistant foreign editor
Bass: Rick Peters, Guardian food and drink subeditor
Banjo: Tim Dowling, Guardian Weekend columnist
Drums: Katrina Dixon, Guardian Guide contributor and subeditor
Trombone: Pascal Wyse, multimedia producer
Vocals: Sarah Russell, Public Sector Portfolio Manager, Guardian News & Media
