Single Serving: Radiohead Rarities, Vol. 2

Volume 2 of the rarities project is complete, and to be honest it doesn’t look at all the way I originally envisioned it would look before I started working onit. As I mentioned in the post for Volume 1, I had thought for sure I would use some of the tracks from Thom’s solo performance at the Bridge School Benefit as well as some tracks from the KROQ session back in approx. 1995 where the band played the two “sexiest” songs (their word – not mine) ever written (i.e. a cover of Carly Simon’s “Nobody Does It Better” and the Radiohead original “Creep”). Instead, I think I’ll just post those performances in their entirety at some point down the road (especially if there is expressed interest in those recordings). I did make sure to include a few songs requested in the previous comments section including “Nice Dream,” “No Surprises,” and I posted the Pawel Osmolski recording of Big Ideas (Don’t Get Any)(a.k.a. “Nude”).

And, as it turns out this was a great time to be working on this project. Just 2 days ago Radiohead’s frontman, Thom Yorke, performed a solo gig at the Latitude Festival and debuted a new song as well as a pretty awesome version of his solo cut “Black Swan” featuring looped instrumentation. I considered adding them to the mix, but since I had pretty much settled on my track order, I just listed them at the bottom of the post as “bonus tracks” (whatever that means). The recordings I posted are higher quality than the ones featured yesterday on Pitchfork and Stereogum and just debuted mere hours ago (thanks go to atease member Nanakey for these recordings). Enjoy!
