Radiohead Lost Track Revealed As Hoax
Alleged lost song which went viral revealed to be work of Canadian baker...
A "long lost Radiohead track" that got the band's many fanatical followers frothing with excitement recently has now been unveiled as a hoax.
The song, which spread virally online under the names Put The Ketchup In The Fridge and How Do You Sit Still, had been passed off as a previously unheard creation from Thom Yorke's boys recorded back in the early 1990s.
But it has now been claimed by a Canadian baker called Christopher Sopa, who recorded the track with his former band Morris Air in 2001.
He told CNN that he was startled to hear his own music when he sought out the alleged Radiohead track online and clicked play.
He said: "What started coming out my speakers sounded extremely familiar and then after a couple of seconds I thought, 'Wait a minute, this is my song'.
"My first thought was somehow I'd hit play on my iTunes and I was hearing my own demos."
To be fair, the track does sound a lot like Radiohead. We think Mr Sopa should start a tribute band and call it Radiobread - considering his day job.
