I don't suppose the polar bear whose stuffed remains Bjork is posing with in that photo died of natural causes.

What Yorke did was pretty much the best Bjork cover I've ever heard. Can anyone suggest a better one?

nope. you should see the cover of new order's 'ceremony' they also did a cover of the smith's

Radiohead have started webcasting on at 21:20 hrs (UK time) this evening. Let’s try to keep you all up to date with what the band are broadcasting from their studio in Oxford.

The webcast, entitled ‘Thumbs_Down” started off with the band doing a live version ‘Bodysnatchers’. Adam Buxton ‘introduced’ the band and Nigel Godrich when coming out of the studio. Followed by a clip from the film ‘Seven’, where the actors opened a box which contained Thom Yorke’s head singing ‘15 Step’.

Up next was recording of Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood playing ‘Faust Arp’ outside and then the camera was switched back to the studio for a live performance of the band doing a cover of The Smith’s ‘The Headmaster Ritual’. Later on Ed O’Brien was back at DJ decks spinning (and dancing to!) Asian Dub Foundation, Kings of Leon and Kenny Rogers.

Thom said: “This is Thumbs Down cause it’s …[holds thumbs down]… We’re gonna play some music as we can still stand up. This our way of celebration the fact that way have finished a record. We’ve been doing some stupid stuff the past few weeks knocking some things together. Don’t expect any high quality cause there isn’t any.”

Next up was a pre-recorded video of Radiohead performing ‘Jigsaw Falling Into Place” in the studio with each member wearing helmets with cameras on them. Then another live performance of ‘Reckoner’ followed.

Colin and Jonny Greenwood continued with a short DJ set. Followed by another cover song performed by the band: ‘Ceremony‘ from Joy Division/New Order. After a DJ set from Phil Selway Thom announced the rebroadcast of their earlier recorded cover of Bjork’s ‘Unravel’.

Since the sound is down from the webcast, let’s give you a summary of some of the songs DJ’ed by the band: Les Baxter - The Ancient Galleon / Kenny Rogers - Condition / Iggy Pop - Nightclubbin’ / Squarepusher /Bauhaus - Bella Lugosi’s Dead / Iron and Wine - Pagan Angel and a borrowed car / Captain Beefheart and the magic band - sun zoom spark / Bonnie Prince Billy - Lessons from what’s poor /Asian Dub Foundation - Naxalite / Ray Charles - It should ‘ve been me /Juana Molina - Micael /Fela Kuti & the africa 70 - Alu Jon Jonki Jon

The band went back to play another song in the studio, but still without sound. Mel from W.A.S.T.E. informed us that this was the end of the webcast: “We’ll do our best to get the last bit uploaded somewhere……. apologies for sound problem at the end.”

As a kid on chemo, I hallucinated. I remember a flourescent polar bear at the foot of my hospital bed. Read more trippy anecdotes at my band's website. Click my saucy, saucy username.
