Karma Police

Last minute entry. This was supposed to be, and will eventually be, an a capella/choral twofer with Fitter Happier, but I wasn't able to finish it in time. [more inside]

ian curtis' bathroom surprise

Oh shit. I lost the power supply to the br-532 in the move, so to be econimical i got a br-800 which arrived this week.. i recorded all this within the last 2 hours and about a half hour ago realized i had no idea how to get it off the damn thing. turns out it was the same way as the 532 but to make a short story short used the mixing on the 800 and um.. here we go.. straight off the br-800.. also played bass for the first time in 500 years

Fitter, Happier, World Famous

Like all supergroups, the OK LA MeFi Action Band sometimes pares itself down to a solo performer and producer arrangement. Nobody leaves the room, you understand, but everyone takes a drink and everyone but me holds their breath. [more inside]

Electioneering

It's a pretty dented-up song as it stands. I submit my version with all its dings and dents, though, because I'm up against the deadline.

Karma Police

Well, here it is. I just couldn't pull off any of the ideas I had to make my cover unique, but I really didn't want to fail the challenge completely. So here's my crappy, iPad recorded version of the tune. [more inside]

Paranoid Android

The epic second track off the Roddy's O-Face record. It's pretty hefty compared to the rest of the songs, so make sure you can handle a solid minute and forty five seconds. [more inside]

Climbing Up the Walls

My submission, just under the wire. Improvised into my phone just now, while fighting dizzy spells and having just submitted to a biopsy procedure. This is also my first Mefi Music submission.

Fitting.

Paranoid Android

My song for the OK Computer challenge. Pretty similar to the original, but with my own personal touches here and there. I performed everything, and recorded it in Logic Pro 9. [more inside]

No Surprises

I downloaded a karaoke file to help find out how the arrangement was put together (although the file I downloaded seems to have some odd deviations from the original track). Somehow I ended up rearranging the tracks and assigning them to string quartet, woodwind, church organ, marimba and dulcimer. And TR808. Not real, of course. I liked the way it sounded enough to keep it. And then I put vocals on it, and I don't know whether it didn't all go (as Satie would put it) au form du poire. [more inside]

Subterranean Homesick Dylan

It's well known that Radiohead went to Bob Dylan for inspiration on the title of Subterranean Homesick Alien; it's less well known that they actually lifted the song structure and lyrics themselves from this rare demo recording. [more inside]

karma kops

I downloaded a random MIDI file of Radiohead's Karma Police and sent it, almost raw, to this robot xylophone which couldn't understand most of the file. It sounds terrible. There's also a boring video version.

Let Down

Time for a short break from the creepy. Turns out, all that needed changing was one word, and this was actually a bit of Mississippi Delta Blues in disguise--mostly because nobody in Mississippi has ever heard of the word "drivel." Sit back on your front porch with a cool glass of lemonade for this one. [more inside]

Climbing Up The Walls

For some reason, finding out that the song was inspired by a moribund sanitarium brought to mind monks.

It's probably a different film now (could still be Romeo & Juliet, but they might have to use chainsaws now). Headphones are best, for maximum crunchification. [more inside]

Subterranean Homesick Alien

In the six months they were together, Roddy's O-Face went through three bassists, the last of whom insisted on being called "The Colonel" at all times. This was a song about the town they were all going to high school in. [more inside]

Lucky

Forgive me gatecrashing the challenge. I've never consciously heard "OK Computer" or this track. I just read through the lyrics and this one resonated for some reason - serendipitously enough given it's Friday 13th! Hope no-one is offended by this effort bearing absolutely no relation to the original other than the lyric. Feels a bit like I've drunkenly decided to juggle with some Meissen china or something...

Karma Police

Here's another Roddy's O-Face track off their Lofi Computer album! If I remember right, Ned wrote this one, and it's about his ex-girlfriend's cop dad and the time he drew a magic marker Hitler stache on her at a party when she passed out, or something like that. [more inside]
