Radiohead tosses out an old track from OK Computer days. For the OK Computer 20th anniversary the band will release its reissue OKNOTOK 1997-2017. It's a sad strummer. Interesting that Thom Yorke doesn't like fans protesting Radiohead's upcoming Israel performance, artist from Thruston Moore (Sonic Youth) to Roger Waters have called on the band to not play in Israel because of its policies toward the Palestinian population. In April, the band were petitioned by numerous artists and activists Moore, TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, and Waters to “think again” about their performance. “Please do what artists did in South Africa’s era of oppression: stay away, until apartheid is over,” the letter read. Read Yorke Blasts “Offensive” Radiohead Israel Controversy, hypocrite?.
