Radiohead, From The Basement, videos on iTunes

Thom YorkeJohnny Greenwood

Radiohead continue their release onslaught, seemingly determined to bring us everything-head that we might possibly need. I look forward to Radiohead tea coseys. The news today is that we can now purchase, via iTunes, a slew of videos from the In Rainbows sessions brought to us by Nigel Godrich, the producer who works with the band and has his own web site From The Basement.

[Update June 26th] Radiohead list the tracklist of videos:
Bodysnatchers, House of Cards, Nude, Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, 15 Step, Reckoner, Go Slowly, Videotape, Bangers & Mash, All I Need.

From The Basement is not user friendly. Much clicking and head scratching basically. And when you’re offered a download of an episode you’re nudged off to iTunes – doesn’t make sense. The whole idea of viral resulting in sales is to give something away. All you can get from the site is clips. Boring.
