Update: So apparantly yesterday’s Radiohead party was nothing more than a lead up to tonight’s planned telecast.? According to NME (I know not exactly the most reliable of sources) the band used last night as a test for tonight’s fun.? Check in sometime between 9 p.m. and 12 a.m. Greenwich time, which is 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. EST and beginning at 1 p.m. on the West Coast… All the fun happens on Radiohead TV.
So yesterday afternoon Radiohead decided to host an internet party over at Deadairspace. The problem was, and I think their music demonstrates their fear of technology, they had server and bandwith problems so plenty of people were turned away at the door. Sadly I was one of them.
Sucks when this sort of thing happens in high school, but even more traumatic when Thom Yorke does it to you. Anyway, by the power of Greyskull, er, YouTube, here’s what all the cool kids got to watch.
Here’s part one: Entanglement, with a remix of “Harrowdown Hill” (off Thom’s solo disc The Eraser). Thom sure can dance, no white man’s overbite here.
After the jump see part 2.
The band cover’s Bjork. This is their take on Homogenic’s “Unravel”
