Mash it Up, Easy Star All-Stars

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — skeptisys @ 12:04 pm

In a comment to my Radiohead song post, Vicky tells us of the Easy Star All-Stars Radiodread, artists who perform reggae versions of Radiohead songs, on this CD. On another CD – Dub Side of the Moon, they perform Pink Floyd songs. The result is a super sound that keeps faithful to the original, particularly with the Radiodread songs. Best of all, I can buy their music without giving money to the RIAA.

Here is a website that will help you determine if your favorite CD is sold by a RIAA company. http://www.riaaradar.com/

  1. Great! I’ve heard 2 grillion Radiohead covers. My favorites are from jazz pianist Brad Mehldau who covers two radiohead songs from OK computer – including one that’s nearly 20 minutes long.

    Of course, Richard Cheese’s big band cover of Creep cannot be missed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53rve12ytwQ

    But the best best best best ever cover of “Fitter Happier” is here: http://www.stereogum.com/okx/ – Somehow Samson Dalononga makes the song hilarious without changing or omitting one word.

  2. Thanks Jute, Richard Cheese is phenomenal. My personal favs, other than Creep, are Closer (NIN) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_31souDqLU
    and Baby got Back http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCv2cgIlnHA
    This style of music will grow in popularity and quality as electronic means continues to improve and the RIAA pushes people to independent music. ‘Never ever washing spiders down the plughole!’
