Radiohead's much-vaunted televised New Year concert turned out to be a bit of a damp squib. For those of us who could find it (broadcaster Current TV failed to list it in their EPG) it turned out to be a collection of pre-recorded performances, previously-released web clips, bizarre slow-motion video interludes and monologues about wee wee.

Undoubtedly the hour-long 'private taping' (home video) will be hailed as a filmic masterpiece, with its disjointed visuals and "clever" manipulation of our pre-conceived ideas of mass media events. Really, though, its just a bunch of yawnsome students pretending to be arty.

Getting a man with a serious baritone voice to make portentous announcements about random nonsense doesn't make you a philosopher. It makes you a poor man's Chris Morris.

Luckily, the music was as brilliant as ever, with the entire In Rainbows album played in one form or another. Here's a video clip of Faust Arp, plus a load of links to the other videos.
