The 18 tracks of raw audio are identified only by numbers "MD111" through "MD128", so discovering what songs are actually on the discs will be an Easter egg hunt, though some fans have been cataloging it on a shared Google doc. The proceeds will go to Extinction Rebellion.
Radiohead responded to the online leak of a series of rough recordings from their OK Computer era by making the full collection available on Bandcamp.
The files were recently stolen from Thom Yorke's archive, with the band deciding to push out the material through Bandcamp after the thief demanded they pay $150,000 for their return. Not a phone download.
For £18 you can find out if we should have paid that ransom. Though judging by the minidisk released today - all recorded between 1995 and 1998 - there was much more material behind closed doors, including demos, alternate tacks, and early live recordings. "There's a lot of it... as it's out there it may as well be out there until we all get bored and move on".
According to its website, Extinction Rebellion is an "international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to achieve radical change in order to minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse".
