Is this old news? I had no idea it was a sample.
in the sleevenotes yo
credited as one of the track's composers and thought hang on, there's no one in Radiohead called that so had to do a bit of investigating.
I'm not the biggest Radiohead fan but I've got to say it's pretty amazing that they've been able to take a six second sample from an ultra-obsure piece of 70s electronica and turn it into something as good as Idioteque.
I'd also like to take this oppurtunity to proclaim that Idioteque is a fucking great song.
whilst playing this mp3 they were going to have stole the beats! that would be bad. but they haven't, so its not.
that sample was created on a computer bigger than a fridge, it was so big it actually needed a team of people to run it and you gave it instruction by feeding it cards! What an oaf..
all these 'flash harries' using cubase and protools these days don't know they're born
but they are the most original geniu sband of a generation, my illusion has been shattered :(
