As a teenager in the '90s, living in Canada's Pacific Northwest, Allison Crowe gravitated toward the Seattle bands Nirvana, Pearl Jam - along with such other favourite North American musicians as Ani DiFranco, Tori Amos and Counting Crows. Across the pond, from the UK came the sounds of Radiohead.

Crowe and her bandmates, performing in Nanaimo, BC venues such as Katz and The Queens, included, alongside their originals, a pair of Thom Yorke-penned songs in their live repertoire - "Fake Plastic Trees" and "Creep".

This live recording dates to the start of this millenium, by which time Allison, on vocals and piano, was performing in a trio - joined by Dave Baird on bass, and Kevin Clevette on drums. (Thanks to audio archivists Condor and John MacMillan for preserving a rare track.)

"Creep" is a song that Radiohead stopped performing entirely for a few years, and brought back into the band's regular live sets in 2009. In recent times, it has been covered by a wide range of acts - Prince, Amanda Palmer, Brandi Carlile, Damien Rice, Korn, Moby, Tori Amos and Macy Gray among others.

Creep

Words & Music by Thom Yorke, Colin Charles Greenwood, Jonathan Richard Guy Greenwood, Edward John O'Brien, Albert Hammond, Mike Hazelwood, Philip Selway - Radiohead

As performed by Allison Crowe

When you were here before,
I couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel,
Your skin makes me cry

And you float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
So very special

But I'm a creep,
And I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts,
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul

And I want you to notice
when I'm not around
I wish I was' special
So very special

But I'm a creep
And I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

She's running out again
She's running
run run run run...
oh, run... run... run...

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep,
And I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't belong here
