Only Thom Yorke can properly express the disillusionment generated by his recent headlines.
I didn’t really notice that I had an AM station on my car radio while I was driving home tonight … until I heard a CBS News announcer say this:
Well, those looking to escape the “Karma Police” have their chance … the band Radiohead is asking fans to …
And you probably know the rest of the story, despite head-scratching lines like that. It’s cheesy and kind of sad, yet somehow not the worst one out there!
Inspired Sickly fascinated, I ventured into the relevance-clutching music journalism (and blogging!) to see if there was anything even better worse. Here’s the bounty:
OK, Now What, Mr. Computer?**: **Cinema Blend reaches just beyond the lengths of anything relevant to the story to pull out this gem. Saved only by the fact that it is, after all, a pretty ridiculously great album.
What’s at the end of Radiohead’s Rainbows?: Points for actually mentioning the underlying news that the world’s most critically-acclaimed band is releasing a new disc. Demerits for making the boys from Oxfordshire into leprechauns.
RADIOHEADING IN A NEW DIRECTION: NY Post headlines are like fresh guacamole – you always forget how good they are until the next time you sample one.
Radiohead’s digital album: Priceless: What a clever, funny headline.
Radiohead’s Rainbows Ready to Shine: Much like E! itself, it’s kind of phoned-in and doesn’t really tell you anything you didn’t know. So, in a way, kind of perfect.
