From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

Oh Radiohead, how I love thee. Not only are they currently performing a brand new track on their tour- the very pretty 'Super Collider'- but they've also covered 'The Rip' by Portishead. Somehow the best song of the year so far just got that bit better.


For every moment of beauty there has to be a crushing example of corporate ugliness, and unfortunately it's arrived in the shape of this unholy mess. Converse have teamed up with Pharrell, Santogold and Julian Casablancas from The Strokes to celebrate the shoe company's 100th year, with 'My Drive Thru' the somewhat confused result. It starts off well enough and you might feel your toe start to tap, but after about a minute or so you begin to realise that it's just impatience, the song just doesn't go anywhere. See what you think...

This is how the trio look sporting their spanking new trainers:
