Everyoneâ€™s favorite nerd rockers just donâ€™t give up. The recent relentless music machine that is Radiohead has found yet another avenue to confuse, amuse, stimulate and intimidate the devoted masses (this blogger included). Last nights previously announced event was for some, un-attainable due to a healthy mix of bandwidth issues and one-too-many â€œcreepâ€-loving clicks. The site was overloaded and many of you didnâ€™t get to witness the spectacle. Well have no fear, KEXP and many other blogs for that matter, are here! It seems some folks out there have created some YouTube clips of Radiohead gathering. Itâ€™s been broken up into two parts, with part one being Thom Yorke doing the turntable thing and recreating â€œHarrowdown Hillâ€ from his solo release Eraser.
In the second clip, whole band gets involved and covers Bjork — that’s right, Radiohead performs Bjork in the next clip! The much more dramatic (Radioheadâ€™s expertise) version of “Unravel” from Icelandic queen’sHomogenic album is followed by some b/w blackboard-ing stuff ending with the phrase “I give up.” One thingâ€™s for certain, this is certainly not evidence of that.
