Radiohead Makes 18 Hours of Stolen “OK Computer” Sessions Available Online

By: Staff –

In response to last week’s leak of 18 minidisc files, Radiohead has made the sessions available in their entirety on Bandcamp.

In a statement, Jonny Greenwood said:

“We got hacked last week – someone stole Thom’s minidisc archive from around the time of OK Computer, and reportedly demanded $150,000 on threat of releasing it.

So instead of complaining – much – or ignoring it, we’re releasing all 18 hours on bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion. Just for the next 18 days. So for £18 you can find out if we should have paid that ransom.

Never intended for public consumption (though some clips did reach the cassette in the OK Computer reissue) it’s only tangentially interesting. And very, very long. Not a phone download. Rainy out, isn’t it though?”

The 18 minidiscs will be available for £18 with all proceeds going to Extinction Rebellion, a socio-political movement which uses nonviolent resistance to protest against climate breakdown, biodiversity loss, and the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse.
