iBLIP 2.1.1.: Radiohead, International Men of Mystery
By god, they’ve multiplied! From America the beau-ti-ful to jolly old England to Scandinavia, Radiohead are turning up in more places than those damn robots in A.I. But have no fear…we’ll catch you up to speed.
LEAVE YOUR LEDERHOSEN BACK AT THE PAD
First stop Berlin…where you’ll collect the latest live download of “Knives Out” and you can still pick up a download of “Pyramid Song.” Take a hop, skip, and a jump to the land of Hans Christian Andersen (that’s Copenhagen, people) to grab a live version of “Dollars & Cents.” Then it’s…
TO THE MOON AND BEYOND…WELL, MAYBE JUST TO RED ROCKS
Oh, sweet America. Stars, stripes, pork rinds, Wal-mart and MTV. Where would we be without MTV? Or better yet, where would we be without MTV.com? Certainly not backstage at Radiohead’s Red Rocks show, interviewing the boys about sending their songs into outer space or about what they really think of the good ole U.S. of A. or about being “bloody pig-headed.”
AND BACK TO THE LAND WHERE ALL THE COWS HAVE GONE MAD…
We track our heroes down in their hometown of Oxford, where the sky is grayer, the grass is muddier and the band PLAYED CREEP?!?! We are not kidding. See Radiohead go back to basics in an archived XFM webcast of their July 7th homecoming bash. Hurry, you only have the rest of the summer to watch it!
iBLIP 2.1.2: New Tickets On The Block
From the Windy City to the Dirty South, we’ve plucked a few pairs of tickets to the last batch of Radiohead shows. Now all you have to do is free a couple political prisoners…sound tough? The good people of Amnesty International attempt to do it every day. We’ll make it easy – bid high and we’ll reward you with a pair of tickets to see Radiohead rock a city near you. First up on the auction block… Chicago and Atlanta, followed by a bit of Canadian bacon (that would be Toronto and Montreal.)
Plus, Rollingstone.com’s got the scoop on Thom’s days of “sucking on a lemon,” how the band felt coming out on top in the era of Britney and Bizkit, and guitars – or lack thereof.
And don’t forget to enter to win an exclusive Radiohead prize pack featuring limited- edition copies of Kid A and Amnesiac.
