Amanda Palmer to release Radiohead Covers EP

by Jonathan on May 26, 2010

Amanda PalmerEx-Dresden Doll Amanda Palmer probably thought to herself, “Hey, Regina Spektor is covering Radiohead, I should too!” Okay, probably not. Anyway, there’s no denying that people love to cover Radiohead songs and Palmer is no different. In an email to her fans, she wrote:

“iā€™m going to unveil my NEW ALBUM PROJECT, which *might* be an EP, and it *might* be an EP of radiohead songs, and i *might* be playing those radiohead songs on a magical instrument like, oh, a little ukulele.”

Rumor has it that the EP should be slated for a Summer release. In the meantime, check out videos of her covering “Exit Music (For a Film),” “Creep,” and “Fake Plastic Trees” after the jump.

News for April 2, 1998

by Jonathan on April 2, 1998

Boy oh boy! The excitement today! For those of you that don’t know, Thom supposedly got into a fight with a KROQ radio DJ yesterday morning. I guess many people didn’t look at their calendars when they got up. For a complete report on this April Fool’s joke, click here.

Ok, I admit. It had me going for a second.

From the Army of Lovers Headquaters website:

“Tralala Productions are considering [NOTE that I said “considering”, but it is a possibility] taking legal action against the British band Radiohead (on behalf of Army of Lovers and songwriters Alexander Bard, Anders Wollbeck and Jean-Pierre Barda) on grounds of plagiarism. The song “Exit Music (For a Film)” from Radiohead’s critically acclaimed 1997 album OK Computer has a chorus very similar to that of Army of Lovers’ hit “Crucified” from 1991.”
