Limmy Has Covered Radiohead’s ‘Creep’

It's the sound of the summer.

Limmy has shared his take on Radiohead’s ‘Creep’.

The Scottish comedian and Twitch streamer also has a fine line in bedroom productions, sharing his digital constructions as and when he pleases. These tracks have a cult following of their own, with VICE using back in 2015: Is Limmy The Best Bedroom Producer Ever?

Often using his studio time to re-work classic songs in a fresh guise, Limmy has just turned his attention to Radiohead’s ‘Creep’. The sombre track occupies an important but divisive place in the band’s catalogue – Jonny Greenwood famously disliked it, hence the sudden crackle of distortion in his guitar part.

Limmy’s version feels more in line with 80s synth pop or even Jean-Michel Jarre, retaining the main melody but rebuilding from the ground up. It’s weirdly affecting, too, sharing a similar sense of isolation to the original.

The only issue? It’s only a snippet. We’d love to hear the full thing!

Radiohead seem to be on top of it, too. Jonny Greenwood was first off the mark, commenting that “[t]here’s still no emoji to express my – very complicated – emotional reaction to this.”
