Radiohead’s ‘OK Computer’ And ‘Kid A’ Get 8-Bit Video Game Music Treatment
Nintendo never sounded so avant-garde. The cartridge starts with 'OK Computer': 'Paranoid Android' sounds more like something from 'Ninja Gaiden,' and 'Karma Police' might translate as a soundtrack to 'Double Dragon.' 'Kid A' also gets the Nintendo treatment: 'Idioteque' could be the 'Legend of Zelda,' and 'Creep,' of course, would be 'Super Mario Bros.'
Out here in real life, Radiohead's touring across the world this summer, with dates in the States through the rest of June -- including Bonnaroo, where they'll be headliners. For further strangeness in the Radiohead universe, frontman Thom Yorke lent vocals to Modeselektor's new outlandish video. Watch and get spooked.
