Popular Oxford band to take command of popular online clubbing-via-computer experience; steel pans might well make an appearance

To celebrate/promote the release of their massive remix compilation, the snappily titled Tkol Rmx 1234567, Radiohead are due to take over the Boiler Room on 11th October. Thom Yorke is set to DJ, alongside appearances from Caribou, Lone, the excellent Illum Sphere and steel pan loving bass-head Jamie XX.

For anyone unfamiliar with the Boiler Room, it's a watch-from-your-computer club music event that's taken the net by storm over the last nine months or so; to learn more, read Angus Finlayson's recent comment piece, where he very adeptly frames it as 'Top Of The Pops for the UStream generation'.

Tickets are invite only, but you can stream the entire show live from the Boiler Room website - it runs from 8-11pm GMT on October 11th.

In other Boiler Room news, Hessle Audio are broadcasting tomorrow from 8-11, with sets from the mighty Peverelist and Ben UFO. Thoroughly recommended.
