Back in December of 2002, Radiohead performed an unusual, partially holiday-themed webcast from their official site called “Inside Out Night,” debuting this year’s The King of Limbs cut “Morning Mr. Magpie” among other impromptu takes and in-studio banter. While this version doesn’t bring the cheer of most holiday tunes, “Winter Wonderland” is morphed into a tripped-out, jaunty number that finds Thom Yorke and the boys loosening up from their usual self-serious approach. Radiohead completists and curious Christmas covers aficionados alike might want to check out the gloriously odd version above.
Meanwhile, in recent Radiohead news, a recording surfaced this week that many believe is an unreleased, previously-unheard song from the Bends era. Though some publications and fans aren’t entirely sold on whether the tune is real or not, the band have yet to confirm or deny either way. In fact, the title of the track itself is up for debate, with some calling it “How Do You Sit Still” and others dubbing the cut “Putting Ketchup in the Fridge.” Regardless, this is a pretty catchy number and worth checking out:
“How Do You Sit Still / Putting Ketchup in the Fridge”
