Not long ago, younger son asked me if I had heard any of Radiohead’s music on 8 bit. First I had to ask him what 8 bit was. He said it is the electronic generated music that is often heard in videogames. I told him no, but then I went out to youtube and found some. It’s pretty amazing stuff. OK Computer is particularly well adapted to it. Click on the link to hear the album:
There is at least Kid A and In Rainbows out there as whole albums and other singles.
Last year marked the 20th anniversary of OK Computer. The band reissued it, this time with b-sides and previously unreleased songs. Haven’t gotten it yet but will for sure.
I love Thom Yorke and I love his stage presence. The following is a video I come back to again and again. It’s weird dancing by most standards, but Thom dances to the beat of a different drummer.
