Inspired by Radiohead’s recent digital experiment, British violinist Tasmin Little is releasing her next album online for free, sans DRM shackles. “I’ve done this with no intention of making money… I want to make [classical music] more accessible.” We think Radiohead should borrow a page from Little in return and put hilarious Glamour Shots on their “In Rainbows” website.

    What is hilarious about the glamour shots?

    Perhaps I am in love …

    Yeah, some pictures of Thom Yorke lovingly cradling his instrument might really boost sales.

    Radiohead didn’t release it for free. They let the purchaser decide what it was worth, IIRC.

    Link’s dead, nothing in Google Cache, however, GIS for Tasmin Little turns up what is probably the same material.

    @Mr. Gunn: Fixed with (hopefully) better links—although I’m not sure Tasmin’s site has the capacity to withstand the extra media attention she’s been getting the past few days.

    Hard to take a classical musician seriously when she’s using cleavage shots on her website.

    What? Classical musicians are supposed to wear burkas now? I don’t really get why she should dress down to play classical music. That’s hardly unusual attire for a fairly conventionally attractive woman. She doesn’t get to be attractive and play classical music? I don’t like it when classical music rewards performers just for looking pretty, but that doesn’t mean we should punish them.

    And seriously, her promo shots look fine. Though personally I like her slightly older ones where she has this 1940’s glamour thing going on.
