The members of Radiohead were bound to meet each other when they enrolled in the same school. Abingdon School for boys in Oxfordshire witnessed a history in the making when the then-twelve-year-old Colin Greenwood and his younger brother Jonny Greenwood bumped into Thom Yorke who shared the same interest with them, music. In the same place, they also met future band mates such as Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway but it was only years after that that a band was formed. 'On a Friday' was officially brought to life in 1986, the year when they would sneak into school's music room just to rehearse their latest composition. "School was bearable for me because the music department was separate from the rest of the school. It had pianos in tiny booths, and I used to spend a lot of time hanging around there after school," Yorke recalled. They received a support from their music teacher, Terence Gilmore-James, who according to the band was the necessary backbone to their creativity development. While juggling with school work, they landed local gigs in Oxford but fame did not come as fast. It took them a graduation and some mundane months in University before going full-time with the profession.
