Remove all traces of joy from Christmas with the Radiohead NES remake collection


Some extremely talented but sadly misguided musician has taken it upon himself to recreate a load of classic Radiohead songs using only the NES sound chip. The resulting generational soundclash is an appealing MIDI-like collection of easy-listening tunes.

Here’s one example – a stirring interpretation of ‘No Surprises’ from that album everyone liked a few years ago.

If you like that, you might also like Paranoid Android, a quite superb version of Creep and a wildly ambitious and almost recognisable go at doing the Pyramid Song in 8-bit glory.

Almost as entertaining as our Andy’s superb Tech Trumpet series.
