Radiohead has released their own demos after a thief tried to blackmail them. Someone hacked Thom Yorke and grabbed his minidisk archive from around the time of OK Computer and demanded $150,000 or else he’d release all the demos. Clearly, Radiohead didn’t pay. Then the leaks started coming. Fans even started compiling a public list for everyone. Granted, the thief didn’t count on Radiohead deciding to release it themselves for around $23.

For the next 18 days, you can download and listen to their archives. All 18 hours of it. If you’re a huge fan of Radiohead, then you’re probably pouring yourself a glass of wine and settling in for the next day. If you’re anyone else, you probably played the first 30 seconds and thought, “eh, ok, that’s enough.”
