Radiohead and the Fine Art of Crisis Management (Sydney Morning Herald)


Radiohead beat the hackers at their own game, essentially, making the material — sonic sketches and works in progress from their trailblazing 1997 album, OK Computer — available for the bargain price of $23, even though [Jonny] Greenwood admitted the music “was only tangentially interesting — and very, very long”. Problem solved. Of course, this is the band that turned the music industry on its ear by offering their 2007 album, In Rainbows, as a pay-what-you-want digital download.
