Jonny Greenwood is the Controller

Jonny Greenwood is the ControllerThis is probably old news to you fans, but there is a new compilation album coming out soon entitled Jonny Greenwood is the Controller which features Jonny’s favorite reggae music tracks. The album is being put out on Trojan Records, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

Jonny indulges his passion for reggae music by mining through Trojan’s extensive catalog and compiling his favorite tracks onto one album, Jonny Greenwood is the Controller. Coming out on March 6th, 2007, this one of a kind collection digs deep into rich Jamaican sounds and covers styles from classic Ska and Rocksteady to vintage Dub and Roots and includes the likes of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Desmond Dekker, Delroy Wilson, Scientist & Jammy and many others.

We have one of the tracks available for you to download! Isn’t that cool?

More Radiohead tributes

Wow, tis the season for Radiohead tributes!

You probably know about the excellent Exit Music (Radiohead Tribute) (US iTunes | UK iTunes) that came out last April. If not, definitely go and check it out. Last week we told you about the Rockabye Baby tribute that will be coming out this month.

There are two more tributes coming out which you may want to check out. ESCD15.jpg The first one is called Radiodread and is by the Easy Star All-Stars. The tribute is described as “The Complete Reggae Version of Radiohead’s OK Computer” and if you’re a fan of reggae, you won’t be let down. We were sent an advanced copy and though reggae is not our cup of tea, the album is very enjoyable and definitely worth the purchase. More details about the album and instructions on how to pre-order can be seen here.

And finally, we have Skeet Spirit: A Crunk Tribute to Radiohead produced by DJ GYNGYVYTUS. We haven’t heard the tracks yet, but with titles such as “No Sizzuruprises” and “Talk Show Hoes”, who can resist the temptation to check it out?

Fortunately for us, it’s available as a free download at this site.
