Thom Yorke, Colin Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, Phil Selway and Jonny Greenwood meet at Abingdon School, form "On a Friday"

The musicians who form Radiohead met while attending Abingdon School, a boys-only public school in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

Thom Yorke and Colin Greenwood were in the same year, Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway were one year older and Jonny Greenwood two years younger than Yorke. In 1985 they formed the band, "On a Friday", the name referring to the band's usual rehearsal day in the school's music room.
