Here's Dexter doing Thom Yorke...
Michael C. Hall (who plays the title character in Dexter) and Lena Hall (no relation, lead singer of The Deafening and musical theatre star) have released footage of their performances of both early Radiohead track Ripcord, and a mash-up of other tracks by the Oxford band.
The pair both performed in the Boardway version of ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ recently, and were performing the Radiohead tracks – shown here in rehearsal – ahead of their performance of ‘Radiohead: Obsessed’ last night (March 19). The performance looked back at Radiohead’s career at Café Carlyle in New York.
Michael C. Hall has an increasingly impressive musical resume, having also recently starred in David Bowie musical ‘Lazarus’, while Lena Hall’s acting career has taken precedence in recent years over a musical career that included releasing an album ‘Central Booking’ with her band The Deafening in 2012.

Radiohead, who are working on a new studio album, will play three nights at the Roundhouse in London this May. They will also play gigs in Amsterdam and Paris in May with further live shows in New York, Los Angeles and Mexico City confirmed for later in the year.
The band will also play Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall and Le Zenith in Paris shortly after their brief London residency.
Come July, Radiohead will headline Madison Square Garden in New York before crossing to the west coast and playing two gigs at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Finally, in October, they will travel to Mexico to headline the Palacio De Los Deportes venue.
Tickets for the UK shows sold out in minutes last week, with Thom Yorke tweeting that he was “fucked off,” though it’s not clear if the subject of the frontman’s ire is touts, ticket prices or other aspects of the sale.
