Radiohead were hacked, release OK Computer MiniDisc sessions to aid Extinction Rebellion

Thom Yorke performs

Releases all 18 themselves for £18 for 18 days with profits going to Extinction Rebellion.

Greenwood said Tuesday that instead of paying the $150,000 demanded by hackers, "we're releasing all 18 hours on (music-sharing site) Bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion".

Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood now says that the hacker who leaked the recordings is demanding $150,000 ransom, so "instead of complaining - much - or ignoring it", the band made a decision to release all 18 hours of the leaked music themselves on Bandcamp.

In a post to social media, guitarist Jonny Greenwood said that the archive was "reportedly" (his words) hacked last week, with the hackers demanding a $USD150,000 ransom in exchange for not releasing it.

Last week, Radiohead were victims of a hacker, who stole 18 separate minidiscs from frontman Thom Yorke. And very, very long.

When you get hacked and held to ransom you can either cough up the cash or call the hackers' bluff, and Radiohead opted to do the latter. Not a phone download.

'If you want it, you can buy the whole lot here. All proceeds will go to environmental movement Extinction Rebellion. They're on sale for £18 ($22.86) for the next 18 days, but the band warned that, with the total size reaching 1.8GB, fans should be prepared to deal with a large download. "There's a lot of it... as it's out there it may as well be out there until we all get bored and move on".

The Met spent £7million policing the demonstrations, which caused carnage on Oxford Street, Waterloo Bridge, Parliament Square, Canary Wharf tube station and outside the Bank of England.
