Someone hacked Radiohead's no longer OK computer and tried to hold unreleased demos dating back to, er, OK Computer for ransom. Radiohead responded by putting them online for eighteen days, beginning today. Here's a link to the description of what happened and to their Bandcamp page where you can stream them or download all for an $18 donation to Extinction Rebellion, which Wikipedia describes as "a socio-political movement which uses nonviolent resistance to protest against climate breakdown, biodiversity loss, and the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse." Eighteen bucks might seem like a lot, but it's over a gigabyte of music. Fiends only, perhaps, but if I was a Radiohead-head, I'd be on this like stink on pigs. Hell, I don't care if they sound like Mantovani, I like the way they handled the situation.
