Recently, a man hacked into Radiohead's files and stole about 18 hours of material recorded during the OK Computer sessions. The hacker then demanded $150,000 not to release the material. Radiohead doesn't negotiate with terrorists, so instead of paying the ransom, they uploaded all the files onto bandcamp. You can hear them all below.
Radiohead also released a statement: " We got hacked last week - someone stole Thom’s minidisk archive from around the time of OK Computer, and reportedly demanded $150,000 on threat of releasing it.
So instead of complaining - much - or ignoring it, we’re releasing all 18 hours on Bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion: https://radiohead.bandcamp.com
Just for the next 18 days. So for £18 you can find out if we should have paid that ransom.
Never intended for public consumption (though some clips did reach the cassette in the OK Computer reissue) it’s only tangentially interesting. And very, very long. Not a phone download. Rainy out, isn’t it though?"
