James Houston: "Big Ideas (Don't get any)" Video

The best Radiohead “Nude” remix I have heard (no easy feat considering Holy Fuck’s brilliant effort). + this video and it is one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. The equipment being used:

Sinclair ZX Spectrum – Guitars (rhythm & lead)
Epson LX-81 Dot Matrix Printer – Drums
HP Scanjet 3c – Bass Guitar
Hard Drive array – Act as a collection of bad speakers – Vocals & FX

I also disagree with Houston’s claim that “It doesn’t sound great, as it’s not supposed to” – it sounds absolutely majestic and I think it was always meant to sound that way. Get through the intro and you will see what I mean.
