Even though Radiohead slam-dunked their version of Bjork's "Unravel" during last night's Webcast, it's become apparent that the band has not got covers completely out of their system. We're one hour into tonight's live telecast, and have already enjoyed two covers: The Smiths' "The Headmaster Ritual" and, for your viewing pleasure above, New Order's "Ceremony." The band also mixed in live versions of their own "Reckoner" (the debut performance of its current incarnation) and "Faust Arp," which was previously recorded and performed in a field with singer Thom Yorke and guitarist Jonny Greenwood. Between performances, the bandmembers have taken turns DJing (who knew drummer Phil Selway loved him some Iron & Wine?) and broadcasting Stanley Donwood animation as well as hilarious skits, like the Se7en-themed music video for "15 Step."
