  1. Radiohead wrapped up their stay in New York last night by performing their second and final show at the Roseland Ballroom. The setlist was very much in the same vein as night 1, however the band surprised us at the start of the second encore by playing “Supercollider” for the first time as a full band. They also played “Like Spinning Plates” earlier, which was a treat. Another treat for us was finally meeting Adriaan from ateaseweb.com. After the show, Thom Yorke did a DJ set at the Westway. This seems to be a regular thing for him, doesn’t it? After the Saturday Night Live performance, he did a DJ set at the Jane Hotel in NYC.

  3. Photos by lisatefft and m_t_graves Radiohead just wrapped up their first of two sold out shows at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom. They played a total of 20 songs mainly from In Rainbows and The King of Limbs, though there were a few older songs like “Street Spirit (Fade Out),” “The National Anthem,” “Myxomatosis,” and the rare “Subterranean Homesick Alien.” Thom paid tribute to R.E.M. by singing a few lines of “The One I Love” right before going in to “Everything in its Right Place.” Setlist: Bloom Little by Little Staircase Weird Fishes/Arpeggi Feral Subterranean Homesick Alien All I Need The One I Love (R.E.M. cover)/Everything in its Right Place Lotus Flower 15 Step Myxomatosis Codex The Daily Mail Bodysnatchers Reckoner ENCORE: Give Up the Ghost The National Anthem Morning Mr. Magpie ENCORE 2: Street Spirit (Fade Out) Nude Did you go?

  4. Photo from pursuitofny Tonight Radiohead will be playing the first of two shows at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom. The show is sold out, so if you don’t have a ticket, you’re probably out of luck. Don’t trust scalpers as both tonight and tomorrow’s shows require the person who purchased the tickets to pick them up from Will Call right before the performances. As expected, fans are already outside the venue waiting to get in. To help pass the time, they were given copies of the Universal Sigh newspaper by the fine folks at w.a.s.t.e. Photo from Thom Yorke / Rules! Speaking of w.a.s.t.e., they have put a bunch of Roseland-specific merchandise up on the w.a.s.t.e. store for you to purchase. Check it out! View the full article

  6. A statement was just posted to Radiohead.com concerning the two NYC shows this week: Some ticket holders for this week’s New York shows have chosen to re-sell one or both of their allocation on auction sites. Using a 2 ticket limit and will-call only access with ID, we have tried to ensure that more tickets go to the people who prefer to see the show than to cheat fellow fans with re-selling tickets at exorbitant prices. For those of you who have to pay over the face value of the ticket, PLEASE make sure that you are certain you can get into the show before parting with your money. A ticket is only valid with its matching credit card details and the ID of the purchaser, after which the ticket holder will be escorted straight through. On a lighter note, we played on The Colbert Report last night. It was funny. Hope this link works where you are: http://www.colbertnation.com/ View the full article
  7. Radiohead appeared on an hour-long special edition of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report last night and it did not disappoint. The majority of the show was dedicated to the band. Radiohead played four songs: “The Daily Mail,” “Bloom,” “Little by Little,” and “The National Anthem.” In addition, there were two interview segments; the first was with the full band and the second was just Thom and Ed. Also, the band taped two additional songs (“Morning Mr. Magpie” and “Codex”) which did not air but are available online. The full episode is online for you to view. All the individual performances are viewable after the jump.

  8. The last of the remixes for The King of Limbs has been posted to Dead Air Space. Thom writes: Here is the last set of remixes, with thanks to Jamie XX, Anstam and SBTRKT That’s the lot then.

  10. Both shows at New York’s Roseland Ballroom went on sale this morning at 10 AM and we’ve been reading many reports that it was pretty much impossible for anyone to get tickets. Of course, it’s to be expected that Radiohead would sell out quickly, especially at a smaller venue like the Roseland. Currently, Ticketmaster says “Tickets Not Available” for both shows, but that doesn’t mean that additional tickets couldn’t become available later. We don’t know that for sure, though. Also, please be very wary of getting tickets through scalpers. All tickets must be picked up at the Roseland will call office right before the shows and be under the name of the person who purchased them. If someone says they have tickets they can sell you, it’s most likely a scam. Were you able to get tickets? Sound off in the comments. View the full article
  11. Radiohead were the musical guests for the season premiere of Saturday Night Live last Saturday. The band played two songs, “Lotus Flower” and “Staircase.” Both performances are below for you to watch.

  12. Jonny Greenwood and Krzysztof Penderecki Lost in all the recent announcements about Radiohead and Atoms for Peace was the news that Jonny Greenwood is planning to release an album with renown Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki. You may recall that Jonny recently took part in a concert event in Poland celebrating Penderecki’s work. It was during that weekend that the two recorded some compositions that will be released in an upcoming album. From the Sacrum Profanum website: It will be a fantastic event. Krzysztof Penderecki, one of the greatest composers, and Radiohead’s guitarist Jonny Greenwood, who performed Sunday at the inaugural concert of this year’s edition of the Sacrum Profanum Festival, are recording an album! It will be prepared by the National Audiovisual Institute and released by the legendary American label Nonesuch Records. The record will contain compositions by Penderecki and Greenwood that resounded at the concert crowning Wroc?aw’s European Culture Congress. The album’s tracks were recorded yesterday and today in Alvernia Studios, a studio based near Krakow. The producer of the album is Filip Berkowicz, the Artistic Director of the Sacrum Profanum Festival. There is no word on a release date. View the full article
  13. Stipe and Yorke, 1995 Yes, we know that this is a Radiohead site but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that after three decades, the members of R.E.M. have decided to break up. Radiohead and R.E.M. have a bit of history together that started when Thom and Co. were chosen to be the opening act for R.E.M. on their Monster tour in 1995. It was during that time that Thom Yorke and Michael Stipe became close friends; in particular, Stipe gave him advice on how to deal with the demands of being in a rock band. We leave you with a few video highlights of Radiohead and R.E.M. after the jump. View the full article
  14. Thom Yorke was a special guest tonight on Gille Peterson’s show on BBC Radio 1. During the two hour show, Thom revealed some interesting info which we’ve summed up for you below: Most importantly, Radiohead will be touring next year. “The idea is to go out and play next year on and off during the year.” They’re talking about bringing Clive Deamer (Portishead) along too. Nice. Atoms for Peace, Thom’s side project, have recorded a new album and he’s “finishing it with Nigel at the moment.” He said that touring last year “sparked something off, it was really exciting… It had really good energy.” Thom was unsure of the release date. Other tidbits include Thom listening to Blue Lines in the car with his kids, how RHCP’s Flea has gotten him listening to Duke Ellington, how he doesn’t have a favorite track from The King of Limbs but loves to play “Bloom” live, that he’s only been to Brazil once and had the time of his life there, and that he’s just finished reading Hans Fallada’s Alone in Berlin and loved it. “It’s an amazing book.” Also, Thom recalls the night he deejayed at Low End Theory last March: He hadn’t slept for three days and didn’t want to show up to Low End Theory. It wasn’t until Flying Lotus sent him a picture of line outside that he decided to come because he feared a riot would take place if he didn’t. You can see the full tracklist of all the songs played during Thom’s 2 hour visit here. Check that link later on for a link to listen to a repeat of the show. View the full article

  17. Yes, you read that headline correctly. Next Monday, September 26, Radiohead will be guests on a special one hour edition of The Colbert Report, which airs on Comedy Central.

  18. Radiohead at Coachella in 2004 It’s been understood that Radiohead will be touring at some point in the near future. Recently, Ed O’Brien mentioned that the band was booking tour dates for 2012 so it comes as no surprise to hear rumors about possible gigs. There’s a rumor floating around now that Radiohead will be headlining Coachella next April, according to the music trade publication, Hits Daily Double: The same is true with high-profile festivals like Coachella, which has locked in No Doubt and Radiohead as two of next year’s headliners… Once we know for sure, we’ll let you know.

  21. Jonny Greenwood at the Sacrum Profanum Festival in Poland last night. Jonny Greenwood had quite the weekend in Poland. On Friday night, his reworking of Krzysztof Penderecki’s “Polymorphia” entitled “48 Responses to Polymorphia” was premiered at the European Culture Congress in Wroclaw. Greenwood was part of a concert event which also included Aphex Twin celebrating Penderecki’s work. Here’s a description written before the event: The programme of two concerts in Wroc?aw includes three compositions by Penderecki: “Polymorphia for strings”, “Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima” and “Canon for strings”. All these works, written for strings (in the latter case, for strings and tape delay), come from 1960-1962, the avant-garde years of the composer’s life. Both Aphex Twin and Jonny Greenwood will invoke just that period in their music. “Polymorphia” – performed for the first time 50 years ago – has become their source of inspiration. Aphex Twin is composing “Polymorphia Reloaded” while Jonny Greenwood – “48 Responses to Polymorphia”; both compositions will have their world premiere in Wroclaw. On Sunday night, Jonny performed at the opening concert at the Sacrum Profanum Festival in Kraków. The week-long festival offers a retrospective of some of composer Steve Reich’s most iconic works, as well as newer additions. Jonny performed Reich’s “Electric Counterpoint,” a composition written in 1987 with three movements: “Fast,” “Slow,” and “Fast.” After the jump, you can view Friday’s night’s performance of Jonny’s ”48 Responses to Polymorphia” as well as an interview with him about Penderecki. In a recent interview, Jonny explains how Penderecki was a huge influence to him: “For me he’s a real hero, because he learnt about electronic music and then went back to the orchestra, and made all these magical sounds using very old-fashioned technology,” Greenwood told Polish Radio. “To me I find that very inspiring,” he added. Besides his work with Radiohead, the British star has written acclaimed soundtracks to films such as Daniel Day-Lewis’s gritty epic There will be Blood. As he told Polish Radio, his admiration for Penderecki stretches back to his college days. “I went to see a concert that he was conducting, and I stood at the front, and at the end I stood up to give him a standing ovation because it was so amazing, and no one else in the room was standing. “But I was so overwhelmed – I was starstruck.” The Radiohead star joked that the concert will be somewhat embarrassing for him. “I have to do lots of sweating and feel very self-conscious and awkward, and I have to put up with Penderecki looking at me because I’ve stolen so many of his ideas,” he said. Among the pieces in the programme, Greenwood will be performing a world premiere of “48 responses to the polymorphia” a further work inspired by the Polish great. “I’ve been following him around, and been obsessed with him, and it’s very unreal, and I can’t quite believe its happening tomorrow,” said Greenwood. “I’m very happy, very excited.” BONUS VIDEO OF JONNY IN WROCLAW: View the full article

  25. There’s a new short film called Radiohead Were Here, which is about “one man’s quest to shop in Waitrose in peace. It’s also a homage to one of the greatest British bands of all time. It’s also a love song to Oxford’s local music scene, as told by the people who know it best. But really, it’s just some funny stories about stalking Thom Yorke.” The film also features interviews with various local Oxford bands such as Spring Offensive, The Scholars and Empire Safari. You can watch the film below. For more information and to get updates, check out http://radioheadwerehere.blogspot.com/. Also, check out our Oxford Guide!
