The KO At Home demo leak Yeah Yeahs Lineup Reading Festival


On December 10, 2006, a home-recorded album titled KO at Home was leaked via an invite-only BitTorrent tracking site. The album, originally a personal gift to Dave Sitek of the NYC band TV on the Radio, was discovered inside a suitcase Sitek left behind in a New York City apartment. The disc’s 14 tracks and scan of the cover – a photograph of Karen O with a poem written by Oscar Wilde on the back – quickly spread. The music news site Stereogum broke the story of the leak the following morning and continued their coverage when Sitek lashed out at the fan who leaked the demos.Eventually Sitek followed up his comments with an apology letter. Karen O’s response to the leak was “shit happens” and although she was somewhat “grossed out,” she offered advice on which of the mp3s she liked the best, namely the tracks “Pumpkin” and “Snakes and Worms”.
