Radiohead, meet Radiodread, mon.

In the tradition of other cross-genre tributes to Radiohead comes an actually pretty good cross-genre tribute to Radiohead. Reggae supergroup the Easy Star All-Stars has taken on O.K. Computer, with results I find both exciting and euphonious. (Then again, I still occasionally rock to this guy, so take my musical opinions cum grano tasteless.)

How does symphonically gray British depresso-prog react to a little sun-dappled syncopation? Surprisingly well, I think. That zippier "Paranoid Android" might just have to go on my iPod, actually. Kinda takes me back the heyday of the cheesy lounge revival. Remember that briefly-fun time? I do.

Who else needs a good reggae going-over, would you say?

    “Rammstein Reggae” is practically begging to be made.

    Reggae covers of rock bands are your thing? Give “Dread Zepplin” a ring sometime. I don’t know if their still around or not, but they had an Elvis impersonator and did reggae covers of Led Zepplin. The band was pretty tight!
    Also, Moon Records (or maybe it was Chuck Wren’s label?) did a release that was all ska covers of famous rock songs. The Busters do some decent covers, but stay away from Greenhouse’s cover of “wake me up before you go go”.
