Turns out I’m not the only person who had a minidisc player, Radiohead front man Thom Yorke did too and now his secret is out…as well as 18 previously unreleased minidiscs’s worth of demo music. A hacker found the stash in radioheads archives (somehow) and threatened to release them…so Radiohead released it themselves and are donating profits to a direct action environmental charity. It reminds me of the publicity they got when In Rainbows came out and was a “pay what you want” model.
