Yesterday, the 5th of November, will most likely remain in the history books as one of the most important dates of US culture. The day the first colored American President was elected, President Obama. Fireworks, bonfires and loads of other celebrations swept the US and world, alike, in honor of this momentous day. I, for one, got really carried away by the hype and even forget that the day was synonymous with Guy Fawkes day, a date very dear to my heart. ‘Remember, remember, the 5th of November’
Oh, well looks like everybody is celebrating Obama’s victory, from hearty teens, to harden veterans, to, especially, musical artists. The fine people of Radiohead didn’t want to see the day go unnoticed either and, thus, released an old remix of “Harrowdown Hill“, most probably closed away in Thom Yorke’s attic for all these years. Check it out bellow and get eclectic. [VIA DEAD AIR SPACE and GvB]
“in celebration of nov 5th
amid bonfire and fireworks in the UK
and the dawn of a new era in politics in the USA
i humbly donate a remix of harrowdown hill that was finished ages ago during the band webcasts,
a small reminder of the dark days of Bush’s….
