Radiohead - Supercollider/The Butcher



So this year's Record Store Day will see Radiohead releasing a limited number of 12" singles featuring more new tracks. 'Supercollider' and 'The Butcher' will be available on April 16th... Like last year when Blur released 'Fools Day', I'm gonna be first in the queue outside my local record shop at the break of dawn.....

Here's 'Supercollider' played live....


UPDATE (20/04/11)

So Record Store Day saw copies of the 12" snapped up immediately. And here are those two tracks


 Radiohead - Supercollider by ianbhoy


 Radiohead - The Butcher by ianbhoy


Lots of odd synths and a nice repetitive piano part on 'Supercollider', while 'The Butcher' features more of the strange rhythms and disjointed beats in the same disjointed manner as '15 Step' or 'Bloom'. Can see why they were released separately from the album.

You can also download them from here: http://www.thekingoflimbs.com/OrderTracking/MemberIndex.php

And for those who can't quite make out Mr Yorke's vocals, here are the lyrics....


Supercollider:
Supercollider
Dust in a moment
Particles scatter
Coming up from the soup
Swimming upstream
Before the heavens crack open
Thin pixelation
Coming up from the dust
In a blue light
In a green light
In a half life
In an arc light
I’m a bass bin
Flip-flopping
I’m a pulse wave
Hot-stepping
I put the shadows back into
The boxes
I am open
I am welcome
For a fraction
Of a second
I have jettisoned my illusions
I have dislodged my depression
I put the shadows back into
The boxes
I put the shadows back into
The boxes
I see an angel hanging over the balcony
I see the angels hanging over the balcony
The Butcher:
Beauty will destroy your mind
Spare the gory details
Give them gift wrapped for the man with everything
Though I lived a lonely life
I was confused
A butcher
I feel nothing
As it courses up my arms in position of the worms
Up, up through my heart and to my brain
I’m a big slab of basic combination cut out chopped liver on the block
My heart’s still pumping
My heart’s still pumping
He’s a warrior
A warrior
Here’s a little bitch coming outta him
He’s a warrior
A warrior
Here’s a little bitch coming outta him
Coming outta him

  1. I hear there will only be 2000 copies of this, and most likely all being in the UK. It is going to be hard to come up with a copy of this. I would absolutly love to get my hands on one but seems unlikely.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they gave this away as a free download through their site as well.
