You can of course record the network stream for each minidisk for free using VLC player for instance. In real time, it's slow but the quality seems quite good and you don't need a fast connection. This is 128Kbps seems quite listenable
@jasee lol no, just no. there are far easier and faster ways to download than by recording it in real-time, e.g. by just downloading the mp3 instead of streaming it - and it's 128 Kbps, whereas even the leaked version was 192 Kbps, neither of which are of any listenable quality.

Climate change is real, actually.


Indeed. I'm pretty certain at some stage I will have to explain to my daughters that yes. in 2019 people were still driving past schools and playgrounds in diesel Range Rovers. In fact, a lot of the school run Mums actually drove and parked on the pavements in a quest to be a couple of metres closer to the school gate.

Yes, we knew it was causing climate change and yes, we knew it was damaging people's health. But, you know, people in other countries cause pollution too, so there's no point in us bothering to change. Apparently.

It's worse than buying overly inflated price CDs in the good old days of HMV except it costs twice as much and you don't get a CD to keep!


It's almost 18 hours of unreleased audio, it's never getting an complete pyhsical release.
Can't believe a fan would balk at £21 quid for 18 hours of never heard before material including alternative versions of songs, demos and unreleased material
I miss my mini disc

Do I knock on their door at inconvenient times as an atheist telling them that God is a nonsense fairytale? People who impose their unsolicited views on others aren't nice.


You wouldn't choose to meet "them"? Wow...your entire post is full of sweeping generalisation and ignorance.
They don't all canvass - they have to volunteer for that (my friend doesn't do it). Also, if anyone has a sign or notice at their door that says "no cold callers", etc...they will move on.

I've had all sorts of unsolicited people knock on my door over the years, and yeah it is annoying - but would I tar them all with the same brush and state that I wouldn't choose to meet any of them? Prejudiced much??
Recording the stream @ 128k would a. Be tortuous and b. Be horrible to listen to. 128k in mp3 is plain nasty. Plus it's a good cause and £1 per disc is a bargain.
I can’t believe people are seriously trying to turn this in to a negative thing.

- if you don’t like Radiohead - don’t buy it / hell don’t even stream it for free.
- the money going to Extinction Rebellion, is surely better than it going to a greedy band... and that is regardless of whether you drive a diesel car or not.

It’s an unbelievable deal, more so that you can stream it before you buy, you don’t like it, don’t buy it.

Have listened to the first 3 minidiscs and they are incredible. I just wish they’d release the other 110 minidiscs... and I’m guessing that’s just the start. Could be thousands of hours unheard.

So by that comment you do believe that climate change isn’t just a natural evolution and that in fact corporations are to blame?

Totally agree the corporations need to sort themselves out, but we’re not exactly playing the end game yet. Love your argument by the way, the corps do what they want, so I’ll do what I want and screw stuff up a little bit more by not separating my rubbish lol. Bet you take a dump on the lawn, cos the dog does it.

No I just think it’s a big joke tbh, like, we, the people are made to sift through our rubbish. The government are corrupt, the big supermarkets should be made to stop all the plastic right now, but it won’t ever happen. So we are blamed for a problem that could be solved overnight by an immediate change in the law.

I'm actually not. I travel all over Europe to see bands, orchestras, conductors, solo artists who's music does something for me. Honestly, I tried with Radiohead but got absolutely nothing from them. I even downloaded the Suspiria soundtrack and couldn't have been more disappointed.

1) Humans are a part of nature.
2) There is no such thing as natural climate evolution.
3) The earth has sustained life at 10 times the concentration of CO2.
4) There is no upcoming apocalypse.

The real waste of energy is going on about CO2 when we could be focusing on plastic which is a far more pressing problem.

Credit where credit is due, your comment makes a lot of sense so fair play.

But the work of charities focused on fighting climate change tend to focus exactly on the laws that we don't have and press for corporations to take more responsibility. It tends to be the government that makes us think us not recycling / using plastic carrier bags is what is killing the planet when it's having barely any impact compared to what others are doing.
Well this release certainly started a debate/rant/masses of abuse didn't it?

Plastics come from Oil, Co2 emissions come from Oil. Oil companies are very powerful, governments are scared of and submit to them. The problem lies at governmental level. Why are we running around like idiots doing the governments job for them. If you want to protest, do it properly with some conviction, not like a gang of priveliged, attention seeking idiots sitting on the floor. It’s ridiculous and will change absolutely nothing....
Rubisco13/06/2019 10:02

3) The earth has sustained life at 10 times the concentration of CO2.


Yes. Bacteria, fungi and dinosaurs. But not human life, nor the vast majority of life that exists today...

Which is kind of the problem. And again you're ignoring the fact that rising CO2 levels is one of MANY problems contributing to global warming.

As a fan, Ok Computer being my favourite era/genre/album of all time, this is amazing. Listened through 1.5hrs so far and a real pleasure, bringing back some good memories and fascinating to hear the different lyrics/demos etc.

Did you know that to the get the meat you eat on daily basis (pigs, chickens, cows, and so on) actually makes toxic waste in process and makes more pollution on earth than all combustion engines combined! Not so easy to explain.. People who had dig too deap die.. You can try to find some of the info in YouTube if they haven't been deleted. Don't expect to to get that information as easy as that... This bullhit around cars is a government nonsense what they teach you...You can teach a human to believe anything with persistence some see a grey are as well no just black and white. I don't want to see blind men comments that don't look at things with open mind.

You overstate the importance of UK specific CO2 passenger car emissions

The Uk is 1.2% of global CO2 emissions
34% of which is transportation (not including aviation)
So UK cars are 0.4% of CO2 emissions. Demonising UK car drivers is completely misplaced anger.

Its also not getting worse, form the 2017 Government Emissions Report:"In 2017, total UK greenhouse gas emissions are provisionally 43 per cent lower than in 1990 and 2.6 per cent lower than 2016."
(Mostly due to energy generation, but transportation emission figures remain flat from 3 decades ago as we cover more miles but in more efficient vehicles)

As I have said, the figures are skewed because they exclude shipping. aviation and any emissions that are now simply emitted in a different country. So as we manufacture and grow much more overseas and take twice many flights, then it is tenuous to say we have cut emissions.

Regarding small percentage, it is very rare you can force the entire world to do what you want and very easy to say "I would do it but no-one else is so there's no point". However, by making bold choices you both set an example to others, create demand for the renewable tech needed to reduce emissions and thus bring down prices for everyone, and finally mean other countries can no longer say "he isn't doing it so why should I?".

Individually if you choose to, say, buy a Range Rover of course your individual contribution to climate change is insignificant but you then create the impression among others that it doesn't matter if they buy one too because Mr X has one as well. On the flipside if you cycle into work you may well influence other road users and colleagues to start cycling as well because Mr X cycles to work/there are loads of cyclists passing me whilst I'm queuing, maybe I should get the bike out of the garage and try too.

It is ridiculously complicated to work out every consequences of our actions but personally I find the "individual actions cannot change the world" attitude poor because it doesn't account for exponential growth - if you convince two people, and then they convince too people, then your original example starts to grow exponentially. And if it doesn't, then even making a small difference is better than nothing.

The figures aren't skewed. You were taking aim at car drives, which these figures are for (although in does include transportation of goods, which might be a chunk of the % - lets go with 50% for the sake of illustration )

So even if UK car drivers optimised by say 30%, assuming say goods transportation takes 50% of the total, then that's 1.2% x 0.4% x 0.5% x 77%

Meaning the CO2 emissions drop from 0.2% (if you halve my original total tranportation % split 50/50 between passenger and freight) to..... 0.16%

A 0.04% drop. And that also assumes some of that efficiency comes from say hybrid or PEVs which will squeeze the emissions bubble elsewhere where electricity is produced . (Gas or coal powered stations)

Doesn't scratch the surface.

Tackling global climate change is a complex issue. It involves 2 massive polluter countries. Consumption of beef/meat as we are carnivores. And even electric cars whilst Zero emission at use, are using electricity which has emissions when produced.
Its childlike (and sorry to say pretty pathetic) to demonise motorists who are just using the default mode of transport to do common things like go to work, childminders, hospital, gym/excerise/grocery shopping. Living basically.


Climate change needs governance, not conscience. Probably science. Probably a quantum leap in battery technology and most likely increased use of nuclear. (See Ted talks on how previous green warriors, have come to realise that nuclear is part of the solution - it has to be)

But that probably won't stop the little snowflakes laying down in the road, full of fingers pointing out the problem but with very little in the way of answers. Being angry with Range Rover owners, probably isn't going to help / change anything.
