Das schrägste Radiohead-Cover ever

Von    |   8. Juni 2008   |   3 Kommentare

Manchen ist Radiohead im Original schon zu schräg. Einige Covers machen den Sound noch schräger. Aber das hier toppt alles.

Radioheads „Nude“, für das sich Radiohead Remixes gewünscht hatten, mal ganz anders. Ab 1:30 geht’s richtig los, an den Instrumenten sitzen:

Sinclair ZX Spectrum – Guitars (rhythm & lead)
Epson LX-86 Dot Matrix Printer – Drums
HP Scanjet 4c – Bass Guitar
Hard Drive array – Act as a collection of bad speakers – Vocals & FX

    Die Story dazu ist auch noch wichtig (Findet sich beim Vimeo-Original unter http://www.vimeo.com/1109226 ):

    >> Radiohead held an online contest to remix „Nude“ from their album – „In Rainbows“ This was quite a difficult task for everybody that entered, as Nude is in 6/8 timing, and 63bpm. Most music that’s played in clubs is around 120bpm and usually 4/4 timing. It’s pretty difficult to seamlessly mix a waltz beat into a DJ set.

    This resulted in lots of generic entries consisting of a typical 4/4 beat, but with arbitrary clips from „Nude“ thrown in so that they qualified for the contest.

    Thom Yorke joked at the ridiculousness of it in an interview for NPR radio, hinting that they set the competition to find out how people would approach such a challenging task.

    I decided to take the piss a bit, as the contest seemed to be in that spirit.

    Based on the lyric (and alternate title) „Big Ideas: Don’t get any“ I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.

    It doesn’t sound great, as it’s not supposed to.

    I missed the contest deadline, so I’m offering it here for you to enjoy. <<
