Nude Track By Radiohead Played With Obsolete Gadgets

In response to Radiohead’s online contest to remix the ‘Nude’ track, James Houston rigged together some outdated and obsolete computer devices and peripherals to recreate the song, and a brilliant music video.

He used a Sinclair ZX Spectrum (which I owned, and spent frustratingly long hours loading and playing the 8-bit Batman game with) for rhythm and lead guitars, an Epson LX-81 Dot Matrix Printer for drums, an HP Scanner for bass guitar, and old and dying hard drives were used as speakers to reproduce the vocals.

The video starts out a bit slow, but after it reaches the 1:10 minute mark, things really pick up.
