Not OK, computer: how it feels to have your music leaked

When Radiohead were held to ransom by hackers, they shrugged and put 18 hours of unheard material online for free. But for other artists, having music leaked can be devastating

In 1997, Radiohead imagined a future in which technological dependency and out-of-control consumerism had merged to form a dark, digital void. OK Computer, the band’s third album, painted prescient pictures of riot police at political rallies and anxious lives lived in suburbs surrounded by endless motorways. The digital advances promising to bring us together, it seemed to warn, would instead corrode and cause chaos.

Last week’s big Radiohead news wouldn’t have sounded out of place on that album’s technosceptic vision of tomorrow. The band had been hacked, guitarist Jonny Greenwood revealed on Tuesday, and 18 hours of unreleased music from their OK Computer sessions stolen. Pay $150,000, they were warned, or this archive would be uploaded to the internet for free. The only thing more frustrating to frontman Thom Yorke than the situation, fans joked, was the fact he hadn’t thought to mention sinister cybercriminals holding people to ransom on OK Computer in the first place.

Live results and round-by-round coverage of Pacquiao vs. Thurman
Photo by J. Yim/Getty Images We have a live blog for Saturday’s pay-per-view, featuring Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman We’re here for our live coverage of the pay-per-view boxing card on Saturday, featuring a main event between Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman for the WBA (super) welterweight title. We’ll have round-by-round coverage of the three main card bouts, including scoring. The current round and bout will live at the top of this article, while previous rounds and bouts will be listed below. Pacquiao vs. Thurman results Manny Pacquiao vs. Keith ThurmanYordenis Ugás vs Omar Figueroa Jr.Sergey Lipinets vs. John Molina Jr.Luis Nery vs. Juan Carlos PayanoCaleb Plant def Mike Lee via TKO in Round 3Efe Ajagba def. Ali Eren Demirezen via unanimous decisionAbel Ramos def. immy Williams via TKO in ROund 4Genisis Libranza def. Carlos Maldonado via TKO in Round 4John Leo Dato def. Juan Antonio Lopez via KO in Round 5 In his last bout, Manny Pacquiao showed the boxing world that, while maybe not at his peak, he can still absolutely destroy opponents. His hand speed hasn’t dropped nearly as much as many assumed, but his next bout, against Keith Thurman, will be one of the greatest challenges of his illustrious career. There’s a difference between this and his previous few bouts. He impressed us when he knocked out Lucas Matthysse, and he handled Adrian Broner without issue. Many believed he won against Jeff Horn. But none of those guys were absolute top contenders with ridiculous knockout potential. This is possibly the most dangerous bout Pacquiao could have taken in 2019. Pacquiao, 40, has a 61-7-2 record as a professional, with wins in his last two bouts. He has 39 wins via knockout and 22 by decision. He’s an eight-division world champion who currently holds the WBA (Regular) welterweight strap. He’s trying to take Thurman’s WBA (Super) welterweight title, but if he beats him, he’ll be the first. Thurman, 30, is 29-0 with 22 victories via knockout. His résumé includes wins over Josessito López, Danny Garcia, Shawn Porter, Robert Guerrero and plenty of others. He’s beaten nobody of Pacquiao’s caliber, but then again, Pacquiao isn’t exactly in his prime. He’ll still be tough to beat, especially if Thurman continues to show signs of rust after an extended layoff between his previous two bouts. He won a majority decision over López his last time out, and was rocked once in the seventh round. If he gets sloppy against Pacquiao, he’ll find himself rocked, and then some. And that’s why this fight is such a good one — it’s hard to predict. It should be easy to see any number of victories for both fighters, and you could say that both are taking a risk by accepting the fight to begin with. The three-fight pay-per-view card will be introduced by a three-fight preliminary card on FOX, beginning at 7 p.m. ET. The highlight of that card is an IBF Super-middleweight title bout between Caleb Plant and Mike Lee. The pay-per-view main card begins at 9 p.m. and also features two other welterweight contests. The opener will pit Sergey Lipinets against John Molina Jr. Lipinets is 15-1 with 11 knockouts. His lone loss came to Mikey Garcia, though he wasn’t that far out of that bout. His most recent win was over Lamont Peterson, where he looked much better than he did against Garcia and Erick Bone. Molina is 30-8 with 24 knockouts, perfectly capable of beating somebody like Lipinets, but who Lipinets needs to beat to stay in contention. The co-feature will pit Yordenis Ugás against Omar Figueroa Jr. Ugás is 23-4 with 11 knockouts, while Figueroa remains unbeaten at 28-0-1 with 19 knockouts. Ugás is one of the more interesting journeyman boxers out there, as he was initially a hyped prospect who suffered a big loss to Johnny Garcia in 2012, but then went on to be an effective gatekeeper who actually kept the gates — ending the unbeaten streaks of Jamal James and Bryant Perrella. Now Figueroa is in his sightlines. Figueroa is another fighter who tends to exceed expectations, all the while being someone who has struggled with his conditioning and weight over the years. Either way, it’s an interesting stylistic matchup and is more interesting than even the main event on paper. Below is all you need to know to watch on Saturday. We’ll have live coverage. All times Eastern Viewing information for Pacquiao vs. Thurman Date: Sat., July 20 Time: 7 p.m. (undercard), 9 p.m. (PPV main card) Main Event Walkout: 11:40 p.m. (approx.)

However he may still face a lengthy wait to get the world title fight he has long craved.Whyte never tends to make things easy. Rivas looked to have Whyte down and out in the ninth round, when a huge right uppercut, followed by a left hook, dropped him heavily early in the round.
