Westboro Baptist Church Protests Radiohead

I have the great dishonor of saying that my experience with Topeka’s Westboro Baptist Church goes way back — Topeka is about 20 minutes away from where I went to school and about 30 minutes away from where I grew up — so it’s no surprise to me that the hate group was out trolling… More »

Radiohead – “Skirting On The Surface”

Right now, Radiohead are touring some of North America’s finest hockey arenas, and they’re intermittently using the occasion to debut some new songs.

Radiohead – “Identikit” & “Cut A Hole”

Last night in Miami, Radiohead kicked off their American arena tour with a stop at Miami’s American Airlines Arena. During what looks like an awesome 24-song set, they took the opportunity to debut a couple of new songs, a disoriented percussive wailer called “Identikit” and a slow-moving quiet one called “Cut A Hole,” both pretty… More »

Hear Portishead’s Geoff Barrow Sample Radiohead On New Hip-Hop LP

Rap has always had a tremendous impact on the production of Portishead sound-mastermind Geoff Barrow, but it’s been a long time since he’s tried making any of it himself. But Barrow, working under the name Fuzzface, is the man at the center of the new project Quakers, a crew that has 35 contributing members and… More »

Radiohead – “Bloom (Jamie xx Remix 3)”

Jamie xx is, it would seem, a true perfectionist. The xx’s producer has already released two remixes of Radiohead’s King Of Limbs track “Bloom,” and now there’s a third out there. His latest take on the track is about eight minutes long, and it’s closer to a straight-up dance track than any of his previou… More »

Latest Radiohead Demo A Hoax

Remember that supposedly unreleased, lost-but-now-found Radiohead demo we posted a little while ago? Well, it wasn’t a Radiohead song at all; it was a song recorded by Canadian singer songwriter Christopher Stopa called “Sit Still,” a track that no doubt shared an uncanny resemblance with some of Radiohead’s earlier material. Check out the CNN report,… More »

The 10 Biggest Band Beefs Of 2011

Back in the day, when two artists didn’t like each other, they’d deal with it in relatively low-profile ways: A snippy backstage comment, or a pointed interview comment. Maybe they’d toss in a lyrical jab, the way Lynyrd Skynyrd did toward Neil Young on “Sweet Home Alabama,” but that would be just about it. That’… More »

Old Radiohead Demo “How Do You Sit Still/Putting Ketchup In The Fridge” Unearthed

Another early Radiohead demo leaked to the web recently, a track that AtEaseWeb users suspect is from the early ’90s. It definitely sounds like it’s taken from that Pablo Honey/The Bends era, whatever this track happens to be. Stream the song, labeled “How Do You Sit Still/Putting Ketchup In The Fridge,” after the jump. More »

SNL Sends Up Thom Yorke, M.I.A., Kanye In “Bublé Duets”

SNL’s writers and former champions made this weekend’s holiday episode a must see. Between Jimmy Fallon hosting, and the consequent cameo-returns of Weekend Updaters Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the ever-absurd Tracy Morgan, and some charitable outreach for the less fortunate (Rachel Dratch, Horatio Sanz, and Chris Kattan) — and the fact that it wa… More »
