In a silent way

Ah, that Thom Yorke, eh? When he's not releasing albums for whatever the buyer wants to pay, or forming side-projects with Flea from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, he's releasing singles consisting of silence.

In fairness, it's not totally bananas. It's a charity single for the Poppy Appeal. Two minute silence - it's a recorded version of the silence at 11:11 on the 11th November, see, which commemorates the end of the First World War.

Which gives Yorke and a bunch of slebs the excuse to pose looking broody and magnificent in the video:

So it's all for a good cause & that, but still, will you be paying for it on iTunes? Especially when John Cage's '4'33'' gives you more than double the silence, and is available for free on Spotify...
