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 »

Radiohead – “The Daily Mail”

A few days ago, a bonus Radiohead Live From The Basement video emerged in the form of a live version “Supercollider,” and in that post we mentioned that Radiohead was prepping two new singles for release on 12/19, “The Daily Mail” and “Staircase.” Lo and behold, Zane Lowe premiered the “single” version of “The Daily… More »

Radiohead – “Supercollider” (Live From The Basement)

In July, Radiohead broadcasted a Live From The Basement session that spanned most of the tracks from this year’s The King Of Limbs. Apparently, a couple of songs were left on the editing room floor and will be included on the DVD/Blu Ray release next year; one of those has hit the web, the Record… More »

Jonny Greenwood Scoring PT Anderson’s The Master

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and Paul Thomas Anderson are set to collaborate again for the director’s new, Joaquin Phoenix-starring film operating under the working title The Master. Among the contributors to the soundtrack is the British jazz group Zed-U. Hopefully, Greenwood’s Oscar bid won’t be derailed for an obscure technicality this time around; The MasterMore »

Bon Iver Nominated For 4 Grammy Awards

The 54th annual Grammy Award nominations were announced tonight, and then our blog server exploded. I blame Skrillex.

Hear Two 25 Year Old Radiohead Demos

Youtube user klootme has given the internet some rough tracks the band scratched out in its pre-fame infancy. The band recorded these, allegedly for their 1986 demo tape, before they had tucked into their Talking Heads lyric sheets for their present name and when they were called On A Friday. There is a sax solo… More »

Deadmau5 Covers Radiohead

Lloyd Banks Samples Radiohead

The Cold Corner 2, the new mixtape from resurgent G-Unit second banana Lloyd Banks, is not going to be our Mixtape Of The Week tomorrow. It’s too long, and it peters out early and gets a bit boring. It is, however, entirely deserving of a listen or two. The first seven tracks or so are… More »

Radiohead Announce U.S. Tour

It’s finally happening. Radiohead haven’t done a proper full-scale tour of these parts in a few years. But early next year, they’ll launch a trip that covers large parts of the American South and Midwest, playing sporting arenas named after corporations and everything. And it seems likely that more dates will follow, especially after those… More »

Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood & DOOM – “Retarded Fren”

On a track with the perfectly ridiculous title “Retarded Fren,” Radiohead gentlemen Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood have hooked up with a somewhat unlikely collaborator, masked indie-rap hero DOOM. On the track, DOOM kicks his trademark slurry free-associative wordplay over wobbly bass-music subs and jittery strings that sound like they jumped straight from Greenwood’s ThereMore »
