Radiohead helps fans make 'Prague' concert DVD: Watch clips here

If you’re like me, the instant your favorite artist walks off stage is when you start wanting to relive their entire concert again. YouTube and portable camera technology have made that hugely easier in recent years, with the caveat that much of the live video out there looks shaky and sounds fuzzier.

Two things set the new fan-made Radiohead in Prague DVD project apart from those typical next-day online clips: First, it’s been carefully edited over a period of months from many fans’ flip cam footage of a show that Radiohead played in Prague on Aug. 23, 2009, so that only the best shots made the cut. Second, even more crucially, the band gave the project its blessing, providing high-quality soundboard audio files from the concert.

Radiohead in Prague is available for free download in a variety of formats, and streamable on YouTube. If you’re any kind of Radiohead fan, it’s really worth checking out. I’m lucky enough to have seen Radiohead in concert many times, and this captures something about that invariably thrilling experience. It’s a true fan’s eye view, putting you right there in the midst of your fellow devotees as the band works its magic.

Check out two highlights from the concert film, “Nude” and “Idioteque,” after the jump. Have you seen Radiohead in Prague? Which are your favorite songs from this show?

    I was at this show!! When I read it was on a DVD I flipped out!! I was on vacation last summer and went to Prague to see them and was in the very front row. The fact that someone would spend all the time and energy putting this together and most importantly Radiohead approved it is a miracle. My favorite song of the night was Exist Music for a Film”…the audience was so attentive,mature,respectful, that when they played it there was total silence…a collective hold your breath moment. A Thousand thanks to the producers and to Radiohead.
