  2. Old school The last time we here at GP saw Radiohead in Atlanta was in 1997 and a lot has changed since then. At that time, Jonny was often seen running the lights for the opening act, and Thom didn’t have a ponytail. OK, OK, we’ll stop with the hatred toward Mr. Yorke’s current hair situation. Tonight the band returns to Atlanta after last night’s stop in Tampa to play Philips Arena. Y’all have fun tonight. View the full article
  3. A huge debacle occurred today when tickets for the Radiohead shows in Australia went on sale. All tickets for the 5 Radiohead shows sold out in “instantly” after they went on sale at 9 am this morning, leading many fans without a way to see the band unless they shell out big bucks to purchase tickets through sites like eBay. Already scalpers have started posting auctions trying to get top dollar for tickets. Speaking to the Herald Sun, tour promoter Chugg Entertainment had this to say: “We are doing what we can to police this, but unfortunately for all of the deterrents that we are able to put in place (like the additional terms and conditions of sale) it is difficult for promoters, ticketing agencies and venues to enforce.” In addition, Chugg has threatened to cancel scalped tickets: “As you can see when you go on to eBay, professional scalpers list tickets with vague details on seating locations but rarely ever get specific about seat or ticket numbers, as this information would allow us to track who they are and cancel their tickets. We are regularly scanning listings to look for tickets that we are able to cancel and will continue to do so up until the tour.” Did you try and get tickets this morning? Were you successful?

After opening their world tour last night in Miami, Radiohead hit the road and will be performing at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Florida tonight. Are you going? Do you think they will play more new songs? Do you think Thom is looking a bit too much like 1980s Bono? Discuss! Other Lives will be the supporting act again.

  14. We recently received an email from Luke Bainbridge, one of the founding editors of Observer Music Monthly, letting us know about a special cause that may interest you hardcore Radiohead fans. Luke writes: “My four year old niece was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour earlier this year, and a charity trust fund has been launched to help raise money to help pay for treatment in Texas. Ed heard about the campaign and extremely generously gave us the guitar he used on Kid A and Amnesiac, and toured with up to In Rainbows to auction for the charity. The charity website is www.billiebutterflyfund.org“ Click here for the auction. The guitar is a white Fender Telecaster, as seen in the picture to the right. Even more cool is that all five members of Radiohead signed it. A note by Ed accompanies the guitar and it reads: To whoever ends up with this Tele… It was bought in the summer of ’98, just prior to us going into record the albums which came out as Kid A and Amnesiac. It was pretty much the only guitar I used at that time. It’s also been gigged a lot, up until and including the In Rainbows tour. Hope you enjoy it – all the best Ed O’Brien If you’d like to own it, check out the auction and get to bidding! It’s a great cause and we’re happy that Ed and the rest of the band were able to donate the guitar. Photos: View the full article
  15. While we are talking about collaborations, we should mention that Thom and Jonny recently collaborated with DOOM on a track called “Retarded Fren” for a compilation celebrating the 10th anniversary of Lex Records called Complex. The song samples “Proven Lands”, a track Jonny did for the There Will Be Blood score. You can listen to the track over at Pitchfork View the full article

  17. Aaaand we’re back from a short break… While we were gone, it was announced that Philip Selway would be doing a couple of solo shows in Oxford this month. The Radiohead drummer writes on Dead Air Space: Hello Next month, on the 10th and 11th November, I will be doing a couple of shows of my solo material at The Pegasus Theatre in Oxford to mark the start of their 50th Anniversary. I’m a patron of the theatre and these shows are fundraisers to support the fantastic and really valuable work that Pegasus does in providing access to the creative arts for young people. It’s a wonderfully intimate place to see a show, so if you fancy coming along, I’d love to see you there. Tickets cost £25 and are available from my store here: http://tickets.philipselway.com/Store/DisplayItems.html Or the Pegasus ticket store here: http://tickets.pegasustheatre.org.uk/Productions/Performances.aspx X Philip View the full article
  18. Thom Yorke and Ed O’Brien recently gave an interview with NPR’s Guy Raz and talked about the recording process for The King of Limbs: Speaking recently with NPR’s Guy Raz about recording The King of Limbs, singer Thom Yorke and guitarist Ed O’Brien agree that, after coming off the long tour cycle for In Rainbows, the band was feeling exhausted and uninspired. To make the new album work, everyone had to slow down and step back. “We had an initial session of about five weeks, and it was really like kids in kindergarten,” O’Brien says. “You had to simplify what you were doing — you couldn’t do loads of ideas. You had to listen to one another. Believe it or not, in a band you can lose that. “Part of what you do is rejection,” O’Brien adds. “I think everybody finds it hard, but I think part of creativity is bouncing back from that. What’s great about the environment that we have is that no one ever says, ‘You can’t do that.’ You try it, and then it’s judged on whether it’s right for the track.” Radiohead tried a new approach for The King of Limbs: Each member worked, piecemeal, on his own contributions before sharing them with the group. Yorke says working that way was a big gamble. “Almost every tune is like a collage: things we’d pre-recorded, each of us, and then were flying at each other,” Yorke says. “You get to a point where you think, ‘OK, this bit needs a big black line through it.’ It’s like editing a film or something. “I don’t think we really genuinely thought anything would come out of it,” he adds, “certainly not an entire record.” Playing live presents its own set of challenges. O’Brien says that, as happy as he was with The King of Limbs upon its completion, the prospect of turning an intricate studio creation into a concert experience was panic-inducing. “That’s the scary part — you realize that you have created in this vacuum, in this bubble,” O’Brien says. “It plays tricks on the brain.” But Yorke says adapting the new material was liberating, as well. “That’s one of the ways we move on musically, is having to force ourselves to learn this thing,” he says. “It’s a backward process, but it really exists in another way once you can actually play it.” View the full article

  20. Many of us are still scratching our heads about last Friday. As you will recall, Radiohead were rumored to play a show at Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park to support the Occupy Wall Street protests. Throughout the day, it became more and more clear that this wasn’t happening, despite confirmation from the Occupy Wall Street organizers, saying they were in direct contact with the band. Later on, they admitted that they were victims of a hoax. Over the weekend, the Village Voice posted the fake email which started the whole thing, supposedly from Radiohead manager Bryce Edge: From: Bryce Edge Date: Thursday, September 29, 2011 Subject: RE: Radiohead @ Occupy Wall Street To: arts_culture@nycga.net Dear Occupiers, My name is Bryce Edge, and I’m one of the managers for the band Radiohead. The guys are really impressed with what you have managed to pull off, and they wanted to stop by and play a couple songs in support before leaving New York. I don’t want to create a big media circus that might worry the police or endanger what you’ve built, plus the band wants to play for the people who have been camped out, not everyone in New York who didn’t get a ticket for Thursday’s show. I was told this was the committee to email – do you think this would be possible? They have some unscheduled time Friday afternoon between 4 and 6, would that work? I read that the police aren’t allowing sound equipment, but they could do acoustic. Let me know. Best, Bryce Edge Courtyard Productions, Inc 8383 Wilshire Boulevard # 526 Beverly Hills, CA 90211-2425 Yesterday, Gothamist posted an email from the supposed “trickster” (pun intended) who says he started the rumor to get people to come down to the protests: Yeah, you found me, but I’ll be taking my story to the Times freelancer who got arrested on the bridge yesterday instead. To the gutsy go the spoils. I’m not an “organizer” or a provocateur, I’m an occupier who tried something, like a lot of us are. The whole occupation was a bluff by Canadians in the beginning anyway. If you continue to think of the only acting bodies as the organizers and self-declared spokespeople, you’ll continue to miss what’s happening. The prank was to give folks an excuse to go to Zuccotti, and although I’m sure I’m terribly sorry for all the pain and suffering I’ve caused apolitical Radiohead fans, it worked, and now our numbers are larger and growing. But it was also to illustrate the buffoonery of self-important spokespeople and committees. This is what happens when two people get put in charge of something (the vaguely tyrannical “Arts and Culture committee”) and empower themselves to speak “officially.” Now they’ve put one person in charge of communications. There are left authoritarians too, they’re a vocal minority, but they don’t speak for me or plenty of others. So this is a call for more humor, more pranks, more of that good old anon shit at Occupy Wall Street and at the other occupations springing up around the country. It’s not that hard, it’s a lot more fun than long meetings, and it’ll work. NOTE: This email is for publication in its entirety or not at all. None of that out-of-context lamestream media trickery. As a precautionary measure, I’ve CC’ed the comrades at Gothamist, who seem totally prepared to call you out for even the appearance of violating source instructions. You, of course, don’t have to publish this note, but I imagine they probably will. Officially yours, J. Erin Stubbie View the full article

  22. While we’ve known for a while now that there’s a new Atoms for Peace album on the way, it is nice to see news about it. Speaking to Rolling Stone, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea confirmed that the band will be releasing a new album: Last year, Thom Yorke‘s new group Atoms for Peace hit the road for a brief American tour before playing Coachella. According to the band’s bassist Flea, the group started to work on their first album at that same time. “At the end of the tour we went into a studio for three days and just jammed – totally improvising,” says Flea. “Thom and Nigel [Godrich] have taken that stuff and done shit with it. I’ve heard little bits and pieces. I have no idea when it’s going to come out. Not real soon though.” Flea says that many people have the wrong perception of Yorke. “People always think about him and talk about as this really cerebral artist,” he says. “Especially when we were playing together. People would go, ‘Thom is so cerebral and Flea is just an animal.’ But Thom is the type of musician who doesn’t think at all. He goes totally on feeling and intuition. Whereas I’m like, ‘You can try a G7 chord with a diminished fifth, that might be proper.’ My point is that he’s such a beautiful, natural and exciting musician. Also, his relationship with Nigel is so cool, Nigel being this organizational, producery-type guy. They’re going to have something incredible. I have complete faith in them.” He refuses to describe the sound of the new material. “I kinda feel like it’s not really my place to talk about that stuff,” he says. “The mystery should be the mystery.” He does think they will tour again at some point. “I imagine that will probably happen,” he says. “I hope that happens. I just have a warm place in my heart and my mind and my balls for the whole fucking concept.” View the full article

  24. It has been confirmed... https://occupywallst.org/article/radiohead-4pm/
  25. Gawker is reporting the following rumor: The Occupy Wall Street protesters camped out in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park are buzzing over a big secret musical guest scheduled to play this afternoon at around 4pm. We hear that it’s Radiohead, who are in New York for a couple concerts. It makes sense: Radiohead’s lead singer Thom Yorke has a history of lefty anti-globalization protest. What do you think: Are the millionaires from Radiohead authentic enough to be the bards of revolution? They’re certainly capable of mobilizing people: When their New York show sold out in minutes they almost caused a Twitter riot. Hmmmm… Again this is just a rumor. Stay tuned… View the full article
