This news is both hilarious and worthy of forehead slaps for music writers/bloggers across the board. Remember that supposed Radiohead demo from The Bends era called “Putting Ketchup in the Fridge” that appeared online last month? Well, it turns out the track wasn’t actually by Thom Yorke and company. Rather, it was by some bakery owner in Toronto named Christopher Stopa who was obviously surprised to see Radiohead’s name attributed to an old demo of his.
The song is actually called “Sit Still” and Stopa told the following to Torontoist: “As nice as it is, because I like Radiohead, and on some technical level it means I sang [the song] well, I don’t really want to be known as the person that was mistaken [for] Radiohead.”
Ha, whoops. This one’s on us. You can stream the track below if you haven’t yet. [Aux]
