Radiohead returned to the stage last night for the first time since the tragic death of drum tech, Scott Johnson. If you’ll recall, Johnson was killed during a stage collapse last month in Toronto which forced the band to delay the tour.

The band did not disappoint last night at Les Arena in Nimes, France, starting off the set with “Lucky”, something they hadn’t done since 1998. Another huge highlight was the live premiere of “Treefingers”, the instrumental track from Kid A. Here’s a video:

For the third encore, Thom Yorke thanked the crew and dedicated “Reckoner” to Johnson, whose picture was displayed behind the band during the performance.

Kid A on Napster? No.

Last night on Napster the entire album appeared through a few users. All the correct songs, all the correct track #’s, even the hidden track at the end…. except it was a clever hoax. “Treefingers” was among the most ingenious creations, obviously the hoaxers own inpromptu jam on his mic and bongos that spanned an entire 9 minutes! This clever trick had a good number of us scrambling to download as fast as we possibly could – all to find we’d been had!
