That URL that sparked rumours of a new Radiohead EP? It was pointing at the band’s W.A.S.T.E. website, but has now been changed to a tetchy message seemingly aimed at bloggers who published the rumours.”Don’t just publish bullshit only to get hits on your webpage. Don’t just create your own stories after reading one post on a message board. Get your facts straight.”Without wishing to criticise the band, though… No, actually, to hell with it: Maybe, JUST MAYBE, the reason so many people wrote about the leaked track and EP speculation is less about bullshit and web hits, and more that they’re excited about the prospect of new Radiohead music, and furthermore the likelihood of it coming in an inventive digital way.Or, in shorter form: Radiohead, get over yourselves. People can’t wait to see what you’re doing next: that’s hardly something to moan about.(Hasty edit: Unless the site has nothing to do with them, and it’s not their message, obviously…)
