OK Computer Week: Warren Haynes – Lucky.

I have to admit I know very little about Warren Haynes and this track does little to inspire me to find out more. This is the sum total of my knowledge:

- He was in the reformed version of The Allman Brothers.
- He’s in a band called Gov’t Mule that I’ve never heard.
- He has a voice that suggests he regularly gargles rusty spanners.

Radiohead originally recorded Lucky for the album HELP to raise money for the War Child charity. The album features many of the UK’s largest acts of the time (The Manics, Blur, Oasis, Salad) and was recorded in the space of a day. It was released later that week and instantly became the fastest selling album when it reached number one the next day.

War Child is pretty much alone in allowing you to support a charity while listening to great music – so do it. You can subscribe to War Child’s downloading service or buy individual tracks such as Radiohead performing Go To Sleep live. The EP also contains songs from Keane, Lucky Jim, Bloc Party and Tom Waits.
And, while you’re throwing money around to assuage your middle class guilt, make sure you pick up a copy of Andrew Holmes’ book 64 Clarke

The Britney Spears version is not without its charms either.

I’d sell my own Grandmother to hear Britney doing Paranoid Android.
