Radiohead Announce Free NYE Gig

Except it’s another webcast, and you’ll be too shitfaced too enjoy it. But still, good news!

Here’s the 411…

Via DeadAirSpace:

Dear Reader

Hope you are having a peaceful christmas.

As you may now have heard we will be broadcasting a pre-recording of some songs and other bits on New Years Eve..
you will be able to view it online from here at midnight new years eve, uk time that is…

as well as other places that i am not sure about.

this is a wee celebration of the release of the physical manifestation of ‘in rainbows’.

yours hopefully


DeadAirSpace indicates scotch_mist rehearsals have been going well, and smell like lemons.

Your favorite album of 2007 performed start-to-finish … not bad. And a cheap way to ring in ’08. broadcast happens UK-time, so you can watch it before you head to that Dirty Projectors gig… Ateaseweb recalls Ed O’Brien in the thumbs_down webcast promising more cover songs, one of them “most likely a track by Siouxsie and the Banshees.” No word whether the performance will include CD2.

The physical manifestation of In Rainbows goes on sale via record store (anyone ever been?) 1/1. Spread the word with this futuristic widget.

Radiohead – “Faust Arp” (MP3)
Radiohead – “The Headmaster Ritual” (MP3)

More MP3s here.

In solo ‘head news, the Jonny Greenwood-scored There Will Be Blood is in theaters today. Thom Yorke’s Eraser remixes are out next month.
