Radiohead to release stolen music for climate campaigners

However, instead of giving in to the crooks' demands, Radiohead chose to release all of the 18 hours of stolen content themselves to benefit charity and put them up for sale on Bandcamp, with all the proceeds to go to Extinction Rebellion.

As a tweet from Radiohead's lead guitarist and keyboardist Jonny Greenwood explains on Twitter, the hackers stole OK Computer sessions tracks that were never meant to reach the public and asked for a $150,000 ransom to not release the mini disc archive.

Fans can buy the music for £18 (about $30 Cdn) for the next 18 days.

Radiohead responded to the online leak of a series of rough recordings from their OK Computer era by making the full collection available on Bandcamp.

God knows Jenner and her mates aren't the only ones to literally capitalise on Atwood's vision of a theocratic America . Then surely she would understand the depth of the subject and pick a different show without such a deep context.

The statement also confirms that the band never had any plans for the public to hear the sessions, though some of the tracks were on the cassette re-release of OK Computer. Thom Yorke adds that the recordings are "not v interesting", and that "there is a lot of it", but "as it's out there, it may as well be out there until we all get bored and move on".

Greenwood describes the sessions as "only tangentially interesting, and very, very long". Not a phone download. My archived mini discs from 1995-1998 (?). 18 minidisks for £18.

Minidiscs [Hacked] can be bought on the band's Bandcamp page, and proceeds will be donated to climate activist group Extinction Rebellion. As it's out there, it may as well be out there.

The Met spent £7million policing the demonstrations, which caused carnage on Oxford Street, Waterloo Bridge, Parliament Square, Canary Wharf tube station and outside the Bank of England.
