UNKLE have all rerubbed "Planet Telex", for example, and Fila
Brazillia and Zero 7 have done the same to "Climbing Up The
Walls". Speaking of which...

studio engineer mate of theirs gave them the vocal track and they
rejigged it without Radiohead's consent or knowledge. The band
liked it so much, they gave it an official release, and so Zero 7's
career got off to a flying start.
On the other hand, there's a Perfecto mix of "Street Spirit (Fade
Out)" which was never officially released; I'm not sure if it was
originally a bootleg or not, but I'm pretty sure that if it was,
Radiohead heard it and turned it down. Didn't stop it from turning up
on white label, though; hopefully the same will happen with Hybrid's
mix (or mixes -- as I've said before, they played a 4/4 mix at the
Cavern and I can't remember whether the one they played in the
Chamjam set was 4/4 or breaks) :)
