Radiohead Leak Their New Track To BitTorrent

,----[ Quote ]
| During the last few days a new Radiohead song was mysteriously released onto
| the Internet. The track is called âThese Are My Twisted Wordsâ and until
| today it was unclear where it had come from. Now, thanks to a post on the
| bandâs blog, it seems the boys couldâve had it planned all along, as they are
| now linking to the song on Mininova.


Radiohead's Thom Yorke Dishes on CD Hatred and the Music Industry

,----[ Quote ]
| Before that joke, though, he was more specific on his opinions of physical
| formats that hold digital media: âI mean, I always hated CDs. Me and Stanley
| [Donwood] always hated CDs. Just a fucking nightmare,â he ranted, adding
| later, âthereâs a process of natural selection going on right now. The music
| business was waiting to die in its current form about twenty years ago. But
| then, hallelujah, the CD turned up and kept it going for a bit. But
| basically, it was dead.â

| interfere with innovation. These movies are being legally purchased. It's
| difficult to see how the studios have any leg to stand on in preventing
| Redbox from using their movies in its service. Isn't there a First Sale right
| somewhere?


Radiohead's Manager: File Sharing Should Be Legal; It's Great For Music

,----[ Quote ]
| This probably isn't much of a surprise given Radiohead's well-publicized
| experiment with letting fans "pay what you want" for its last album, but the
| band's manager has now said that he thinks file sharing should be legal (sent
| in by Ruby), noting:
|     "We believe file-sharing by peer-to-peer should be legalised. The sharing
|     of music where it is not for profit is a great thing for culture and
|     music."

,----[ Quote ]
| Radiohead's âIn Rainbowsâ album topped the U.S. sales chart this week,
| selling 122,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
| It arrived in stores in CD format on New Year's Day, nearly three months
| after the artsy British rock group unleashed the album to the Web at a cost
| to be determined by the user -- whatever price fans chose to pay, including
| nothing at all.    


Radiohead album bets on fast release, open pricing

,----[ Quote ]
| The release of popular rock group Radiohead's new album next week is the
| latest wake-up call for a music industry still struggling to deal with the
| advent of digital music, experts say.
