We posted a youtube video not too long ago of Prince’s performance at Coachella, or more specifically his rendition of Radiohead’s first crossover hit “Creep” (It’s not like you’re gonna hear Radiohead play that song anytime soon). The video has since been taken down as the powers that be (Prince’s legal team) have methodically removed all video evidence of his performance on youtube…
Upon hearing about Prince’s net-policing fascism Thom Yorke was quoted as saying “Really? He’s blocked it? Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment. Well, tell him to unblock it. It’s our … song.” That’s why we love Thom Yorke, he’s always fighting for the little people, and their right to upload shaky, pixelated, digi cam videos of gigs that sounds like their looped backwarda through a vacuum cleaner.
