'I've always hated CDs'

Radiohead weirdo Thom Yorke has revealed his burning hatred for the Compact Disc, and his love for the fluffy world of online distribution, which gives unimportant chumps like us the chance to just nick everything for free – not that we would do that, of course.

‘Me and Stanley (Donwood, designer) always hated CDs. Just a f***ing nightmare,’ said Yorke in an interview with Believer magazine. ‘There's a process of natural selection going on right now. The music business was waiting to die in its current form about 20 years ago. But then, hallelujah, the CD turned up and kept it going for a bit. But basically, it was dead.

‘If you forget about the money issue for just a minute – if it's possible to do that, because it's people's livelihoods we're talking about – and you look at it in terms of the most amazing broadcasting network ever built, then it's completely different.’ Cheers for not making me pay for your albums Yorkey you old diamond.
