Everybody needs good neighbours.

Aussie Radiohead fans are currently hanging out to see if the band adds Australian dates to their world tour, but it turns out there’s another way to see frontman Thom Yorke in concert — just become friends with his neighbour.

Yorke turned up at his neighbour’s garden party on the weekend and played an impromptu acoustic set that lasted about 30 minutes, and included songs like Desert Island Disk, No Surprises, Street Spirit, I Might Be Wrong and Reckoner.

The party was reportedly held in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday. News of Yorke’s appearance was first posted to Reddit, after a user’s dad texted them to say he was “in Oxford at [a] garden party with Suzie’s neighbours, about to hear entertainment from neighbour Tom York [sic] of Radiohead!”
