This song was written as a tribute to The Pixies, but Radiohead later admitted themselves that it sounds nothing like them. 'Stop Whispering' was first recorded in april 1991 at Dungeon Studios:
The band rerecorded the song, which was mixed by Chris Sheldon, and released it as a single in the USA. The band made a video for this single in which they were persuaded to "dress up in diver's clothes and dance around. It was all very embarrassing" (Thom). As far as he can tell, this was a "single that never was a single".
