Amanda Palmer Releasing EP of Radiohead Covers: Check Out Idioteque Here
The songs were recorded in Australia after she learned how to play the mini-guitar "as a joke" to do a memorable cover of Radiohead's "Creep" at a pal's benefit for Iranian punk musicians, the clip of which went viral.
The EP is titled Amanda Palmer Plays The Popular Hits of Radiohead on Her Magical Ukulele, and has a kitschy album cover to match. Tracks include "Idioteque" (the first single, available now via Bandcamp and posted below), "Creep", "No Surprises", "High and Dry", "Fake Plastic Trees" and a version of "Exit Music (For a Film)" for piano and string quartet recorded live at The Sydney Opera House.
