OK Computer

  • Stereogum is currently featuring an incredibly extensive tribute to OK Computer, featuring covers from Mobius Band, The Twilight Sad, Chris Funk of The Decemberists, and a must-hear version of “Fitter Happier” performed by Samson Dalonga featuring The Found Sound Orchestra (aka David Cross). Make note of the first comment on the post from Stereogumcommentor McJadedo, “Hmmmm…. never been much of a fan of “OK Computer” myself. It always just seemed like a necessary stop-gap that allowed them to reach the majestic heights of “Kid A” and “Amnesiac.”
    • If that’s not enough remakes for you, check out these remixed Clash mp3s at Press Random. Or if you want, you can pretend they’re just really really poorly done Radiohead covers.
    • And fine, if you want some quality mp3s that aren’t remakes, check out this thorough page over at Recidivism. Pay particular attention to the Melt Banana and Rentals tracks, and to the fact that it is the longest blog post in existence that is not written by a person with the intials D.H. and includes the word “Entourage.”
