Radiohead go reggae!
No they haven't chilled out, its a tribute album
Radiohead's classic album 'OK Computer' has been entirely re-recorded, nine years after its
However fans should not worry, the band themselves haven't tampered with their masterpiece.
Rather the record the latest subject of the Easy Star reggae label's cheeky tribute
Three and-a-half years ago, the Easy Star Allstars released 'Dub Side Of The Moon', a reggae
adaptation of Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon'. And for its follow-up, 'Radiodread', the
collective have tackled 'OK Computer'.
Easy Star's explained: "We wanted to do something that no-one would anticipate, something
that would take us to a new place altogether."
And bandmate Lem Oppenheimer said of the logic behind the project: "Reggae music, born in
opposition to colonial oppression, conveys hope in the bleakest moments. Likewise, there is
humour and hope in the voices of 'OK Computer''s lyrics, and that's where we found the
deepest connections with the reggae spirit."
Released on August 21, 'Radiodread' features an array of guest vocalists, including Horace
Andy on 'Airbag', Citizen Cope on 'Karma Police' and Frankie Paul on'Lucky' .(NME)

"The Eraser" XL 2006
El Alma de Radiohead.
por Juan Gallardo - IndyRock
Thom Yorke nos ha dado una buena sorpresa con su primer disco en solitario "The Eraser" un
proyecto que ha llevado a cabo de la mano de su eterno productor Nigel Godrich y del que
casi nadie sabía nada hasta hace un mes cuando el mismo Yorke lo anunció en la web oficial
de Radiohead. En aquel anuncio Thom dejaba claro que había contado con el beneplácito de sus
compañeros y que no quería oír hablar de rumores de separación, egos encontrados etc.
Especialmente sorprendente porque Radiohead se encuentra en plena grabación de su nuevo
disco. El anunció no levantaba grandes expectativas, sobre todo porque decía que había sido
una grabación "divertida y rápida", parecía que Thom simplemente se había sacado la espina
de editar unas cuantas canciones que no consideraba lo suficientemente buenas para
trabajarlas con el resto del grupo. De ahí el increíble impacto del disco, que supera las
previsiones más optimistas. Sí, suena a Radiohead, a veces, más o menos, algún eco de Hail
to the Thief y de Amnesiac, pero es un disco de Thom Yorke, el alma de Radiohead. Lo primero
que choca es que, a pesar de ser un disco básicamente electrónico, toda la música suena con
mucha claridad, la voz de Thom sin una pizca de reverberación, creación en estado puro.
Desde la canción que le da título al disco "The Eraser" reconocemos los ritmos que
martirizan a Thom desde Kid A, los coros casi gregorianos, y las letras increíbles de
siempre (Las barreras que no puedes escalar, las frases que no riman ... no hay tiempo para
analizar, para pensar bien las cosas, para darles un sentido... solo estás interpretando un
papel ... Llovió toda la noche y después todo el día, las gotas eran del tamaño de tus manos
y tu cara, los gusanos salían a ver qué pasaba y sacamos nuestros coches del río) Un disco
que gana a cada escucha, con algunas canciones que te van a poner un poco a prueba, y otras
como "Analyse" que se instalarán en tu corazón para siempre a los 10 segundos de
Thom Yorke confirma a IndyRock un disco en
solitario en julio
El líder de Radiohead, Thom Yorke, publicará en el mes de julio un disco bajo el títuo "The
Eraser". Se trata, según ha dicho el propio Yorke en un comunicado remitido a IndyRock, que
no es un disco de la banda, sino compusto e interpretado por él. También señala que no son
ciertos los rumores de separación de la banda, que asegura que se encuentra en su mejor
mmomento y preparando nuevo material, además de estar de gira. Este disco es producido por
Nigel Goldrich, con portada de Stanley Donwood. Será más rítmico y electrónico. "Los
ingredientes han estado ahí durante años, y necesitaban ser rematados, y yo me moría de
ganas de hacer algo así desde hace mucho. Fue divertido y rápido de hacer".
Comunicado completo de Thom Yorke
"Esta nota es sólo para decir algo que ha estado rondandome y de lo que no os he hablado. Se
llama "The Eraser". Nigel lo ha producido y ha hecho los arreglos. Yo lo he compuesto e
interpretado. Los ingredientes han estado ahí durante años, y necesitaban ser rematados, y
yo me moría de ganas de hacer algo así desde hace mucho. Fue divertido y rápido de hacer.
Inevitablemente es más rítmico y electrónico, pero son canciones, Stanley hizo la
portada...si, es un disco! No es un disco de Radiohead, como sabeis la banda está girando y
escribiendo nuevo material y llegando a un buen momento, por lo tanto no quiero oir basura
sobre que si soy un traidor o lo que sea acerca de separación, bla bla...Ok, pues eso es
todo, creo que saldrá en Julio y estoy bastante seguro de que alguna XL (gran compañía,
n.del t.) lo sacará.
Con amor, Thom".
this is just a note to say that something has been kicking around in the
background that i have not told you about.
its called The Eraser.
nigel produced & arranged it .
i wrote and played it.
the elements have been kicking round now for a few years and needed to be finished & i
have been itching to do something like this for ages.
it was fun and quick to do.
inevitably it is more beats & electronics.
but its songs.
stanley did the cover.
yes its a record!
no its not a radiohead record.
as you know the band are now touring and writing new stuff and getting to a good space so i
want no crap about me being a traitor or whatever splitting up blah blah...
this was all done with their blessing. and i don't wanna hear that word solo. doesnt sound
ok then thats that.
i think its out in july and im pretty certain XL are going to put it out.

· Ten years ago War Child released the landmark 'Help' album within one week to raise funds
to help the children of the Bosnian war
· On 9th September 2005, to mark the tenth anniversary of the first 'Help' album, War Child
will release 'Help: A Day in the Life'
· The new album will be recorded and available to download within 24 hours
· Artists who have given over their time for free to record include:
Radiohead ~ Gorillaz ~ Razorlight ~ Kaiser Chiefs ~ Magic Numbers ~ Bloc Party ~ Keane ~ The
Coral ~ Manic Street Preachers ~ Damien Rice ~ Mylo
· In the last decade at least 1.6 million children have been killed as a result of wars, and
a further 4 million disabled
· War Child believes that children should never be affected by armed conflict regardless of
any justification put forward for it
· The monies raised by the new record will enable War Child to provide both material and
psychological support and rehabilitation to children on the edge of conflict and
post-conflict societies through innovative projects across the world.
On one day in September 1995, 20 of the UK's finest bands and artists went into studios
across Europe to each produce a track for Help, the fastest number one album in British
music history. That album, recorded for the War Child charity, raised more than £1.25
million to help children caught in the atrocities of the Bosnian war.
The tenth anniversary of that extraordinary event will be marked by Help: A Day in the Life
on Friday 9th September 2005. On that one single day, the artists of 2005 will each record a
new track, and help to make history as part of the world's fastest-ever online download
Bands and artists are recording their exclusive tracks from locations all over the world;
Gorillaz are recording in Hong Kong, Kaiser Chiefs will have 3 hours to record their track
on tour in Berlin, Damien Rice is interrupting the recording of his second album in Dublin,
Belle & Sebastian will be making their music in Glasgow and the Manic Street Preachers
will be delivering a brand new song from their studio in Wales. Emmanuel Jal - a rising rap
star who was once a child soldier in Sudan - is also contributing brand new music.
In the past ten years, War Child has worked with children and communities blighted by war in
several countries including Rwanda, Sudan, Afghanistan, Angola and Iraq, where drop-in
centres in Nasiriyah and Basrah are being rehabilitated in order to provide a safe place for
vulnerable street children and help them gain access to education and skills. Some of the
most horrific stories of child victims of war come from the Democratic Republic of Congo. In
one incident alone last year, War Child prevented scores of child soldiers from being put on
transport planes in August 2004 bound for the eastern conflict corridor.
The album will be available to download at www.warchildmusic.com from lunchtime Friday 9th
September 2005. Tracks cost 99 pence per download. Help: A Day in the Life will be released
on CD on Independiente on Monday 26th September.
The full list of artists contributing to 'Help: A Day in the Life' is as follows:
Belle & Sebastian, Bloc Party, The Coral, Damien Rice, Elbow, Emmanuel Jal,
Go! Team, Hard-Fi, Kaiser Chiefs, Keane & Faultline, Magic Numbers, Manic Street
Preachers, Maximo Park, Mylo, Radiohead, Razorlight, Tinariwen, The Zutons.

Radiohead Start Online Diary And Studio Sessions Radiohead have commenced the recording
sessions for the follow up to their
last album 2003's 'Hail To The Thief' and have also started up an online diary letting fans
know how work is progressing.
RADIOHEAD headed into the studio yesterday
(August 18) to continue work on the follow-up to 2003's 'HAIL TO THE THIEF'.
The band announced the plans for their as-yet-unnamed seventh studio album in a posting on
their official website radiohead.com.
Singer Thom Yorke said: "We are going into a proper studio on Thursday (for a leettle (sic)
while) with 192 faders which is a lot of choice a bit like the supermarket and it may all go
off before we get to it so we have to eat quick."
Radiohead have been recording on and off at their own studio since the beginning of early
2004, but it is unknown how much of that time has been spent working on the new album.
Guitarist Jonny Greenwood recently told Billboard: "We don't take time off very well. We're
enjoying it still, so why just go home and do nothing?" A statement from the band's
management revealed that the group are "putting some ideas together" in the new studio to
"see where they want to go with the next step musically".Radiohead are currently without a
record contract having fulfilled their commitments with EMI following the release of 'Hail
To The Thief'.
However, their management dismissed recent rumours that Warner Music were lining up to sign
the band, saying: "The band (are) not looking for a record company in any way, shape or
form. They are out of a contract, but they're not actively looking for another one. They're
getting on with doing what they do."
In another post, Yorke said: "No record contract as such. Any offers? What we would like is
the old EMI back again, the nice genteel arms manufacturers who treated music a nice side
project (and) weren't (too) bothered about the shareholders." (NME)

tocaron material nuevo en el concierto que ofrecieron en el Royal Festival Hall de Londres

RADIOHEAD PLAY NEW SONG
Members of RADIOHEAD have debuted new material on stage in LONDON tonight (March 27).
Jonny Greenwood and Thom Yorke played two tracks together at the Royal Festival Hall with
the London Sinfonietta.
The duo debuted the delicate-sounding 'Arpeggi', which featured ocean-themed lyrics, plus
played 'Where Bluebirds Fly', a b-side of 'There There'. Both tracks were specially arranged
for orchestra by Greenwood.
The appearance was part of Greenwood's collaboration with the London Sinfonietta for the
South Bank's Ether festival, and saw the guitarist pick a selection of experimental music
for the evening.
The orchestra performed two compositions by Greenwood, 'smear' plus the world premier of
'Piano For Children', along with a series of other short orchestral works.
The event also witnessed a guest collaboration with the Nazareth Orchestra who injected an
Arabic influence not only with their own work, but by joining in 'Where Bluebirds Fly' with
the Radiohead duo.
The programme featuring Yorke and Greenwood, is due to be repeated tomorrow at the Royal
Festival Hall./ http://www.nme.com/news/111840.htm

All the shots, in which a celebrity is covered in foodstuffs, illustrate the plight of
farmers who are systematically 'dumped on' by rich countries.
Yorke said: "How sweet does your chocolate taste when you know the producer in a country you
will never see did not even get paid enough to feed his family? How sweet does it taste when
you see the amount of profit a few multinational corporations make on it?
"How sweet does it taste, exactly, to know our own governments prevent these countries from

online. The songs are thought to have been recorded at the Courtyard Studio in 1991 or even
earlier in 1990, thereby pre-dating the band's record deal with EMI the following
NME.COM has heard some of the songs, and while it is unclear if all the songs are authentic,
'Without You' is an early version of the released song, 'Maquilidora'. The other songs are
variable in quality, and even more diverse in style.

THOM YORKE was the surprise guest at DJ
SHADOW's BRISTOL gig last night
(May 19). Shadow is in the UK performing a trio of
shows in support of his new album 'The Private Press', which is released on June 3. At last
night's gig at the Bristol Academy, Shadow announced he had a "special guest" who would be
making an appearance later in the evening. Towards the end of his set, Yorke came on
to the stage and performed the song 'Rabbit In Your Headlights'. The track doesn't feature
on either of Shadow's solo albums, instead on the 1998 UNKLE album 'Psyence Fiction', on
which the pair collaborated. Speaking recently to NME.COM, Shadow, who played with Radiohead
on some dates on their 'OK Computer' tour, said he remains a big fan of the group. He
revealed: "That would be amazing if they did ask me to work on something. They routinely ask
me to tour with them, but the timing always seems to be wrong. Hopefully they haven't given
up on me yet because I'd really like to do something with them. I'm an unequivocal fan of
that group." (NME)

The short film to accompany the combined version of 'Pull/Pulk Revolving Doors'
was unveiled last night (November 29) as the highlight of the
inaugural Projectors Animation Festival held at the Centre For Contemporary Arts in
It was introduced by Susie Wilson of Picture On The Wall, the Glasgow animation company who
provided the computer graphics which are a key element of the film.
As 'Pull/Pulk Revolving Doors' - backed with images of killer whales swimming in darkness
under UV light and sinister, barely-visible figures - segues into Like Spinning Plates', the
images grow increasingly strange. A bizarre computer-generated image shows a machine taking
shape, with conjoined twins, linked at the waist, spinning at high speed in what appears to
be a centrifuge. It culminates with the crying infants' torsos ballooning and their ribs,
made of blue-patterned china, emerging through their chests.
The film, which took four months to make, was directed by relative newcomer Johnny Hardstaff
for Black Dog. Hardstaff's work to date has included films for PlayStation and Freestylers,
while Black Dog's credits include Aphex Twin, Björk and Kylie Minogue's 'Can't Get You Out
Of My Head'.
There had been some doubt over whether or not Picture On The Wall would be allowed to screen
the video, but they were given the green light by Radiohead and their label at the eleventh
hour. However, all did not go smoothly, with a fire alarm interrupting the screening forcing
the venue to be evacuated. It was resumed after the fire brigade gave the all-clear. At
press time, it was unclear when or if the film will be made available for general public

RADIOHEAD have donated £7,500 to help
refugees and asylum seekers in their hometown of OXFORD
. Oxford-based charity, Asylum
Welcome, from the proceeds of their massive gig in the town's South Park earlier in the year
Speaking about the donation, Asylum Welcome chairman Sam Clarke said: "We are grateful to
Radiohead and all their fans who made this donation possible. People held in detention don't
know why they are there nor how long they will be locked up for. Providing this sort of link
with the community will make life better for a lot of asylum seekers."
Radiohead's manager Julie Calland added: "Radiohead are delighted to be able to help by
donating some of the proceeds from their Oxford performance. Like many, they are shocked at
the way asylum seekers are treated on their arrival into Britain. As media interest grows,
this must be an especially difficult time for both asylum seekers and the visitors from
Asylum Welcome. We wish all of them the very best of luck."(NME)

Jeremy Healy told MTV, "Radiohead isn't what you usually get on the decks, even my decks,
but these mixes are something else. Who would've thought they work as dance mixes?
Everyone's trying to get hold of them at the moment and they're fast becoming hot property."http://www.musicgoeson.com/article.php/243/

Radiohead nominados en los Mercury Music Prize
have made their cartoon debut in a new episode of 'SOUTH PARK'. The
episode, entitled 'SCOTT TENORMAN MUST DIE', was recently shown in the US. But UK fans will
have to wait to see Radiohead in action on 'South Park'. Channel 4 will screen the episode
next year, while viewers of Sky One will be able to see the episode later this year, but
until then here's a sneak preview of the show.
The unlikely collaboration happened after Radiohead contacted Matt Stone and Trey Parker,
the duo behind 'South Park', to see if they could design a T-shirt for Radiohead's recent
gig at South Park, Oxford. Stone and Parker did come up with a design for the T-shirt, which
was on sale at the Oxford gig. Radiohead returned the favour by recording a voiceover for
the TV show when they were in Santa Barbara on their recent US tour.
The plot of the episode centres on a ginger-haired character, Scott Tenorman, who tricks
Cartman into buying his pubic hair for $16.12. Radiohead are guest stars and play a key role
in allowing Cartman to exact revenge on Scott Tenorman. NME

It's Radiohead's New Broadcast The band's first formal U.S. tour in three years is
brimming with energy and confidence that reflect a recharged vision.
By ROBERT HILBURN, LA Times
Radiohead's highs ranged from brilliant to breathtaking Friday at the Santa Barbara Bowl, a
performance that reaffirmed the British group's place as the only true rival to U2's
position as the greatest contemporary rock band. But the most revealing moment in the more
than two-hour concert may have been a 30-second sequence between songs. Lead singer Thom
Yorke is normally so stone-faced that it certainly caught your eye when he returned to the
stage with a mischievous smile for the second of the group's three encores. He looked out at
the enthusiastic crowd and asked playfully if it really wanted to hear some more music.
That's like asking a caffeine addict if he really wants that first cup of coffee of the
morning. The fans, who had already been on their feet for the entire concert, cheered
wildly. What made the moment special was that you could tell from Yorke's upbeat manner that
he and the rest of the group wanted to play more tunes as much as the audience wanted to
hear them. One reason for excitement on both sides of the spotlights is that this is
Radiohead's first formal U.S. tour in three years, and it follows a period of such
uncertainty that many wondered if they would ever see the band again.
....In "Kid A" and "Amnesiac," Yorke reduces lyrics to a series of random images, often
distorting or slurring them vocally in ways that add to their abstractness. Similarly
Friday, Yorke was sometimes more effective in communicating the nuances of the songs by
sidestepping careful clarity for simply pure feeling, as in moments when he employed the
lonesome beauty of a falsetto wail. However dark the music, the effect is inspiring and
hopeful. The group's musical approach was echoed imaginatively on the video screens at both
sides of the stage. Normally, the goal of the screens is to present clear images of the acts
to create a greater sense of intimacy in the facility. But the images Friday were frequently
as abstract as the music, fading in and out of focus in keeping with the mood of the songs.
The goal wasn't to have you better see the performers, but feel the emotional depth of the
music. It was a statement of priorities that underscores the originality of the Radiohead's
music and its vision.
Las alabanzas de Radiohead
La Opinion (Los Angeles) http://www.laopinion.com
Durante el primer concierto de su gira por Estados Unidos, la banda de Thom Yorke estrenó
'Amnesic' y elevó musicalmente al público con las nuevas versiones de sus temas más
clásicos. Jueves, 28 de junio de 2001 WOODLANDS, Texas.-- Radiohead dejó atónitos a todos en
esta ciudad con la primera muestra de lo que será su gira por los Estados Unidos. En el
Cinthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion de Woodlands, a una hora de Houston, esta banda dejó en
claro que no se limita a ofrecer solamente discos ensalzados por la prensa y sus fanáticos,
ya que en vivo también son motivo de alabanza.
La banda ofreció un concierto espléndido, de dos horas, en el que ninguno de los músicos
dominó arriba del escenario. Sin embargo, en conjunto, hicieron vivir al público una gran
experiencia y se mostraron como un grupo "aceitado", esa característica que sólo otorgan los
años y la experiencia.
Aunque los escoceses de The Beta Band abrieron el concierto, fueron los ingleses los que se
llevaron el espectáculo de principio a fin.
Con Thom Yorke, Ed O'Brien, Phil Selway y los hermanos Johnny y Colin Greenwood, los
Radiohead se apoyaron de algunas secuencias e instrumentos poco comunes para montar un
concierto de rock, pero el resultado fue óptimo: al final, los más de 20 mil asistentes al
evento se entregaron completamente a ellos, y viceversa.
Yorke comprobó en el tablado que es totalmente la antítesis del rockstar: nada de poses al
momento de las fotografías de rigor para la prensa, y a pesar de la timidez que lo
caracteriza, se mostró amable y entregado a la gente.
Ataviado con una playera que en su pecho decía "Kill All Artists" (maten a todos los
artistas), el cantante ofreció al auditorio un total de 22 temas, entre los ya
"obligatorios" del grupo y otras sorpresas.
Radiohead no interpretó ningún tema de Pablo Honey, su primer álbum, del que han dicho
sentirse un poco avergonzados. Por lo tanto en el inicio de su gira faltó Creep, casi un
himno de la Generación X. Aún así, la gente no se inmutó: regalaron temas a placer de Bends,
OK Computer, la gran mayoría de Kid A, y algunos de Amnesiac, a la venta desde hace un par
Las luces y la instrumentación estaban dispuestas para tener contento a cualquiera, pero fue
la música la que sació el apetito musical del público.
Con arreglos que variaron desde acompañamientos con tres guitarras, piano, violonchelo y
hasta panderetas, la banda también experimentó sobre el escenario, tocando sus temas de
estudio de una manera completamente distinta, e intensamente agradable al oído.
El grupo abrió con National Anthem, y conforme progresaba el concierto, la fuerza también
fue en aumento: Knives Out, Morning Bell, No Surprises, I Might Be Wrong e Idioteque
salieron de la boca de Yorke.
El público, que no se sentó ni un sólo minuto, hizo regresar en dos ocasiones al grupo al
La emotividad mayor llegó con Karma Police, Paranoid Android y The Bends, con la que
culminaron el concierto. Radiohead sigue de gira por Estados Unidos, ya que aún tienen 20
fechas más por cubrir. A los que ya tienen sus tickets en mano, les espera un gran

music and a way out of the woods.

juegos Olimpicos de invierno de Salt lake City que se celebraran en febrero del 2002.
Radiohead in sporting mood
By JANE STEVENSON -- Toronto Sun
Radiohead, those Oxford-based art rockers who support the No Logo ruminations of Toronto's
Naomi Klein, might let their new song, I Might Be Wrong, be used in ads for the Winter
Olympics in Salt Lake City next February.
"It's very exciting," bassist Colin Greenwood told The Sun. "It's a charitable organization,
so it's a non-fee based sponsorship deal, and it's not going to be tied to any kind of
corporate branding. So as long it's free of anything like that it'd be really exciting to
have our music together with images for the Winter Olympics. There's images of snowboarding
in the ad for the Olympics."
Greenwood is a fledgling snowboarder who picked up the sport at the Sundance Film
"It's very much gentlemen downhill snowboarding. It's all about not falling over and going
quite sedately rather than tricks," explained Greenwood.
Amnesiac No. 2 USA
Staind's "Break the Cycle" (Flip/Elektra/EEG) experienced a 25% sales drop, yet manages to
squeak its way past a powerful debut by Radiohead's "Amnesiac" (Capitol) to spend a third
straight week atop The Billboard 200. "Amnesiac" sold a smashing 231,000 units
according to SoundScan, besting the band's 207,000 first-week sales total of last year's
"Kid A," which opened at No. 1. "Kid A," however, didn't have to compete against a hard rock
set like "Break the Cycle," which moved 245,000 units this week.
"Amnesiac" sets a new single-week sales mark for Radiohead, likely due to the fact that the
band has once again agreed to make videos -- "Pyramid Song" is in heavy rotation on MTV2 --
and the band will on Monday (June 18) begin a much anticipated North American tour in Texas.
"I Might Be Wrong," the first domestic single from "Amnesiac," is No. 27 on Billboard's
Modern Rock Tracks chart. (Billboard)

Radiohead make big No. 1 chart debut
By PAUL CANTIN Senior Reporter, JAM! Showbiz
Radiohead's "Amnesiac" made an unforgettable debut atop the Canadian album charts, according
to sales data compiled by SoundScan Canada.
"Amnesiac" debuted at number one in Canada with sales of 48,253
, well ahead of its
closest competitor, the second-place soundtrack to "Moulin Rouge" (16,212).
In the U.S., Radiohead's showing wasn't quite so overpowering. The album sold 231,469 during
its opening week, which landed them in second place behind Staind's chart-topping "Break The
The numbers suggest Radiohead enjoys a substantially stronger following in Canada.
Typically, bands of equal stature in the U.S. and Canada enjoy 10 times their Canadian sales
in the States. By that measure, Radiohead should have sold more than 480,000 copies of
"Amnesiac" in the U.S.; they managed less than half that number.
Radiohead performed similarly well last year when they released "Amnesiac's" equally
challenging sister-record, "Kid A". It sold 44,365 copies when it debuted at number one for
the week of Oct. 8, 2000.

Radiohead are working on the video for their next single, "Knives Out," and the clip will

Following the abstract cartoon "iBlips" from Kid A and the computer-animated video for the
U.K. single "Pyramid Song," the band decided to go live action on this outing. Directed by
Michel Gondry - who helped Björk achieve her quirky vision in the videos for "Human
Behaviour," "Hyperballad" and "Bachelorette," among others - the video features an
appearance by lead singer Thom Yorke himself. (Sonicnet)

half-hour once the cameras had stopped rolling.
The band's set, primarily based around recent albums 'Amnesiac' and 'Kid A', went out live
on BBC2 from 10.30 to 11.30pm, but they then delighted the audience of guests and
competition winners by running through another six songs, including recent single 'Pyramid

Radioheadhad also performed two songs before transmission began, including a cover of Neil

Onlookers, including DJs Steve Lamacq and Marc 'Lard' Riley and TV's Adam & Joe, were
treated to the sight of Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke in smiling, jokey mood. He dedicated
'You & Whose Army' to "everyone who decides to be a leader - especially when governments
aren't really in charge anymore". He also dedicated 'The Bends' to S Club 7 "who like
smokin' the weed".
The band were joined onstage by renowned British musician Humphrey Lyttleton, who reprised
his trumpet-playing role on 'Amnesiac''s closer 'Life In A Glasshouse'. (NME)

Radiohead to debut brand new songs
Radiohead will debut at least two brand new songs during their upcoming tour in support of
their new album, "Amnesiac," the band's Jonny Greenwood told JAM! Music.
In a telephone interview from his home in Oxford, England, on Thursday,
multi-instrumentalist Greenwood said that -- despite having released two complete albums
since October 2000 -- the members of Radiohead "have all the songs (for the next record) in
"We mull over them and think how they could be done justice to, what is the best way to put
them across," Greenwood said.
Part of that process of figuring out how to put the new material across includes testing the
numbers out in front of a live audience.
"There are a few songs already that we are going to start playing when we get to America and
Canada. I don' think they have song titles yet," he said.
"One of them might be called 'Reckoner.' Maybe. We'll see. It may change again. 'Egyptian
Song' (initially known as "Nothing To Fear" and now identified as "Pyramid Song", the first
single from "Amnesiac") changed titles."
Among those orphaned songs mentioned in Radiohead fan circles are "Bombers (Neil Young *9
"Big Ideas (Don't Get Any)," "C-Minor Song," "I Will," "Innocents Civilian" (described by
producer Nigel Godrich at one point as the strongest song from the sessions), "Jonny Scott
Walker Song", and "Up On The Ladder."
Greenwood revealed that another unreleased song, "Cuttooth," will surface next month as a
B-side to the next British single from "Amnesiac," "Knives Out". (There's no word on whether
North America will issue the single, Greenwood said).

Anyone Can Play Radiohead : A Tribute To Radiohead
Perhaps no other act in modern pop history has so convincingly combined the oil and water
achievements of being platinum-selling rock stars as well as media darlings with absolute
artistic integrity like the British avant-masters, Radiohead. This smart, thoughtful tribute

by virtue of its stunning variety while still appealing to fans of these widely acclaimed
saviors of rock. Contributions span the genre spectrum including a melodic Brit-pop
rendering of the spoken-word piece Fitter Happier, a moving debut from shoegaze artists
October Hill, an electro-ambient treatment of the Gen-X anthem ?Creep? along with industrial
offerings from The Illuminati and Meegs Rascoon.
Anyone Can Play Radiohead is an ironic play on words, yet the performances turned in by this
bevy of rising, international talent proves that the spark ignited by the enigmatic

NME.COM that any band accused of being bleak are "onto a good thing". Speaking in an
exclusive interview published in this week's NME, Yorke said it "alarming" that our culture
avoids anything "vaguely depressing". He said: "The reason you create music or art or write
is in order to put things in a way you can possibly deal with it. And death is one of those
areas. "But we don't seem to spend much time with it, do we? If you're accused of being
morbid or bleak then I'd say you're onto a good thing, 'cos our culture is most fucking

to Thom Yorke and Radiohead - in this extensive interview and finds out what they think of
Bono, awards ceremonies amongst other things and why they maybe changing direction. One
still instinctively senses Yorke will have to go through some more championship-level bouts
of self-questioning and inner torment before Radiohead's sixth album is in the racks. It
might end up sounding like a conventional rock record, but it could just as easily end up
sounding like Penderecki. Yorke and his cohorts are on a journey. "And if we choose to go
off in a new direction and do something different, it's OK if you don't want to come along
this time. But we'll probably be returning your way sometime anyway. We'll be getting our
guitars out just when everyone else is doing German techno. So don't worry about us!"

Ed O'Brien: NZ Herald
A listen to a four-track preview of Amnesiac, which was recorded during the same sessions
for the previous album, indicates the songs are more inviting. While Kid A was a fractured
affair, electric buzz and static, the next instalment turns down the experimental factor in
favour of melody and, on the likes of the brooding Pyramid Song, something majestic.
"Kid A was such an unemotional record. When we came out it was such a relief and we were
kind of instilling our art. It was trip, it was a headspace. I love Kid A. I think it's
really great but it's not warm. [Amnesiac] is warm.
"Stanley, who does the artwork with Thom [Yorke], his analogy was Kid A was a bit like you
are phoning someone and you get the answerphone at the other end and hear their voice, and
Amnesiac is like a conversation on the phone. It engages you."
But if it was recorded at the same time as the previous effort, couldn't this be seen as the
second half of a double album?
"Well, it was a matter of tracklisting the first one and seeing what we got left. We
tracklist really hard these days, I think it's a real art. For a band like us tracklisting
is a massive, massive task. It's the only time we seriously ever think, 'right that's it,
I've [expletive] had enough of this'."
So what's it like being in Radiohead, a band often perceived these days as tortured singer
Yorke and four relatively normal young men from Oxford?
"I don't know where we are at the moment because we're not touring as much. That's a bit
confusing. There aren't as many neuroses. It's not like Meeting People is Easy
Radiohead Previews Amnesiac at SXSW AUSTIN, Texas
- One of the most exclusive
engagements at this year's South by Southwest music and media conference was Capitol
Records' three listening sessions to preview some of tracks from Radiohead's forthcoming
album, Amnesiac. The affairs drew writers, poseurs, and even executives from other labels to
get a first taste of one of the year's most anxiously anticipated releases.
During interviews to promote last fall's experimental Kid A, band members said Amnesiac
would be more guitar-oriented and straightforward. The six tracks previewed today - "Packt
Like Sardines (In a Tin Can)," "Pyramid Song," "You and Whose Army," "I Might Be Wrong,"
"Dollars and Sense," and "Life in a Glasshouse" - did not entirely fit that description.
Ambient and melancholy in nature, the six tracks - not necessarily representative of the
entire album - do feature more guitar, but they also find Radiohead continuing to work with
synthesizers, polyrhythms, stark production techniques, distorted vocals, and, on "Life in a
Glasshouse," New Orleans funeral music with a full brass section. Several of the songs also
displayed Eastern and Spanish flavors.
Amnesiac was produced by the band with longtime collaborator Nigel Godrich. Radiohead will
tour to support the album, starting on the West Coast in June, heading to Europe in July,
and returning to the United States in August (Wall of sounds)
Bjork/Yorke: No Longer
! The duet that was going to make everyone melt in a puddle of
their own tears, Bjork and Thom Yorke at this year's Oscars, has been called off.
Apparently, the mean, mean people at the Oscars have sliced Bjork's stage time down to a
shoddy three minutes. She and Yorke were going to sing Bjork's "I've Seen it All," the duet
the two perform on the Selmasongs soundtrack to Lars Von Trier's Dancer in the Dark. That
song is six minutes long. Now, why Thom Yorke adds an extra three minutes on to this song, I
have no idea, but I do not question such things. So now Bjork will be singing a shorter
version of the song by her little lonesome. "I've Seen it All" is up for a Best Original
Song Oscar against tracks Bob Dylan, Sting, and Randy New man. Good thing no Steely Dan. The
73rd Annual Academy Awards will be held on March 25 in Los Angeles. Fear not, though,
because it was also recently confirmed that the duo would be performing the track together
at a private concert to be aired in France June 6 for French Canal TV.(spin magazine)

Radiohead's Amnesiac Fills In Kid A Picture

"For us, it's actually just giving a complete picture of what we did those two years,"

"It was quite an eclectic time for us anyway, so it's just giving the full picture."
Bassist Colin Greenwood said the upcoming disc, which is expected in June, balances more
straight-up Radiohead tunes with the experimental spirit of Kid A.
"It's about 50-50," he said. "It's got more traditional Radiohead-type songs together with
more experimental, non-lyrical based instrumental-type stuff as well, and it works as a
record in its entirety, which is what we care about. We didn't want to do a double album,
with stuff from today as well, because it would have been sort of the boring prog-double
Best Alternative Music Album Award winner Radiohead was represented by band members Ed
O'Brien, Colin Greenwood, and Phillip Selway.
"It's a big surprise," said Selway. "We

off. "I don't think it'd be fair to say we don't understand the cultural significance,"
O'Brien added. "But we're Brits, we don't understand it. But four years ago, we didn't want
to come to this and now, it's good to see these things. We're in a very fortunate position

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke at the Radiohead fansite, www.spinwithagrin.co.uk, Radiohead's
Ed O'Brien and Colin Greenwood are in attendance at the Sundance Film Festival, which kicked
off last Thursday in Park City, UT-to "join the Hollywood jetset." Now, no one seems to know
just why exactly Ed and Colin will be at the festival, but it might have something to do
with the fact that Radiohead music publisher, Warner Chappell, will be hosting a party down
at the film festival on Wednesday called "Sounds For Visual Thinkers," which, according to
the company's website (www.warnerchappell.com) will reportedly have "new music + video" by
Radiohead, as well as performances by Überzone, Semisonic, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
And though we're hard-pressed to figure out what role the new Radiohead music/video will
play in all of this, we can tell you that Warner Chappell will be webcasting the whole
thing. The gig starts at 8 PM. If you go to
http://www.warnerchappell.com/sundance2001/sundance.html, there is a link to where the live
webcast will be. The music website Launch.com has reported that two new songs from the band
will be played at the soiree, most likely tracks to appear on the band's forthcoming
Amnesiac, the anticipated follow-up to Kid A, released in October. And if that's not enough
check out the Warner Bros. site at
www.warnerbros.com/pages/liveconcertseries/artist.jsp?artist=RetroActiveRadiohead, where you
can watch a new video for "Idioteque," as well as other clips from the band.

Radiohead inner barrier pass,
RADIOHEAD ATTACK RADIO-HEADS
RADIOHEAD have said that they feel "excluded" by UK radio stations, including RADIO 1, for
not playing their songs on air.
Radiohead famously refused to release any singles from recent album 'Kid A'. However, in an
interview with the Radio 3 show 'Mixing It', bassist Colin Greenwood claimed that the
"demographics" of certain stations mean their music does not get played.
He said: "I heard the controller of Radio 1 say the demographic for their station is now 14
or 15 to 25 (years old), so I think we are kind of excluded. It is getting harder for our
music to be heard.
"It is the nature of the times we are in. Other artists of considerable stature launched
albums in the past few months only to see them drop out of the top twenties and thirties two
According to this morning's Observer newspaper (January 7), Greenwood's comments, which form
part of a larger interview about the musical influences on their work, are unlikely to be
has revealed that RADIOHEAD made a series of short films based on songs
from 'KID A', but they may never see the light of day because of their original decision not
to release any singles from the album.
Speaking on the Radiohead question and answer forum www.spinwithagrin.co.uk, Yorke said that
in retrospect the band "all felt pretty sad" at their decision not to release any singles
from 'Kid A'. He said: "It meant the only judgement of our music was being made by critics,
which was OK and everything but there is nothing like the excitement of hearing (your music)
on the radio. The reason we didn't have any singles was nothing to do with artistic
credibility...it was just the stress of getting into that area at the time was too much, and
perhaps too misrepresentative." Yorke added that "half an hour's worth of short films" which
are "the best pieces of video that we had ever made" may now never get a public airing as a
consequence. He continued: "They didn't fit the format, which is bullshit. It makes me very
sad to think that no-one is ever going to see the most beautiful piece of film that was ever
made for our music, which was a full-length video for 'Motion Picture Soundtrack' which has
me in tears every single time I watch it. Or the digitised fucked-up version of 'Idioteque'
live, or the incredibly daft sperm monsters jumping into a pool of blood that went with 'Kid
Yorke joked that the release of new album 'Amnesiac' later this year would coincide with
"singles, videos, glossy magazine celebrity photoshoots, children's television appearances,
film premiere appearances, dance routines, and many interesting interviews about my tortured
about the idioteque video
POSTED BY maxk ON DECEMBER 10, 2000 AT 23:32:55:
it's not a specifically made 'video for the song'. it is part of a performance at air
studios which the band filmed early september time this year. they performed about 15 songs
there and recorded them for future video/DVD/ whatever. i reckon they've handed the rights
already for that over to the record company, who chopped out the idioteque performance and
decided to perform an idioteque 'radio' promotion.
there is *no* way the band said "hey, let's do a promotion for idioteque as a 'single' in
order to shift more units. yes, we'll make a specific video for it, mr. record company" nooo
way. more like the record company repeatedly hassled them to do something until they gave
in. perhaps they had some power of veto but realised there were more important battles worth
and there are!
the band have not wasted 10,000 pounds (the average cost of their last videos) on an
'artistic' video for any of kid a.
RADIOHEAD - THE NEW BEATLES?
RADIOHEAD's THOM YORKE has revealed that when the band confounded critics and went to Number
One in the US and around the world with 'KID A' they felt they had turned into THE
After reeling off each of the countries in which the album took the top spot on its week of
release - in so doing putting pay to the belief that they were not interested in any form of
commercial success - Yorke described the buzz he got from what they achieved saying "We were
the Beatles - for a week."
Speaking exclusively to Steve Lamacq for broadcast next Wednesday (December 20, 8pm GMT) on
his BBC Radio 1 Evening Session the Radiohead frontman also described the feeling behind
'Kid A' as "the idea that we're giving birth to the lifeform that will inherit the earth
after we destroy it in about 50 years". The idea is also related, he said, to his feelings
about the new millennium, working through "apocalyptic thoughts" he couldn't get out of his
Joining Yorke were bassist Colin Greenwood and guitarists Jonny Greenwood and Ed
O'Brien.Drummer Phil Selway was at the birth of his second child.
The band also expressed frustration at suggestions that they were trying to be difficult
with 'Kid A'.
"When people said we were being difficult - that freaked me out actually," admitted Thom.
"We just moved on - I mean, is writing and being creative and being in a band just supply
and demand? It was only people in the press who said we were trying to piss people off.
Ed added that they were haunted by the phrase "wilfully perverse".
You can hear the rest of the interview, which finds the band relaxed and self-deprecating
discussing why Ed thinks Asian Dub Foundation are the "best live band in the world", about
Thom's inspiration for songwriting and on solo albums in the future next week, December 20,

Radiohead turn down Oakenfold Mix
Radiohead have blocked a Paul Oakenfold euphoric
trance mix of their The Bends single Street Spirit. The track, which Oakenfold played during
his set at Homelands Ireland, will now never see the light of day. Speaking to promote his
Travelling mix CD which has just been released on Perfecto, Oakenfold told Irish online
magazine www.oceanfree.net; "We were going to release that on Planet Perfecto, but
unfortunately the band Radiohead, as far as I'm concerned, don't like dance music so they
wouldn't allow us to do it. They would have got the publishing money obviously because its
their song. It will now never be released. "
Oakenfold has released a multitude of remixes for acts in the past including U2, Massive
Attack and The Stone Roses. His remix of Even Better Than The Real Thing for U2 famously
sold even more copies than the original. On the subject of his prolific remixing career,
Oakenfold added; "I like the challenge of taking a track and making it work in a different
way. It's always the purists who don't like it. They're always moaning, the purists, you can
never keep the anoraks happy." Oakenfold has been confirmed as a guest DJ at Cream,
Liverpool for New Year's Eve 2000/2001. Unsurprisingly, Radiohead have not yet announced
their NYE plans. ( Q magazine)
Dollar & Cents TOPS
One of the candidates for the next Radiohead release, this
sinister-sounding track, which the band has been performing off and on this year, is built
around an ascending bassline not entirely dissimilar to "Shot By Both Sides", the Magazine
tune the band has toyed with in concert. "Kid B", anyone?

RADIOHEAD and U2

Janes Addiction/Porno For Pyros frontman Perry Farrell to take part in a three day festival
in Israel in Spring 2001. Farrell, who co-founded America's Lollapolooza festival, is said
to be trying to assemble a bill for a huge event to mark the Jewish Jubilee, a
celebration of "liberty and renewal" which is held every fifty years, to mark the
Jewish exodus from Eygpt. The ancient city of Tel Arad is being considered as a possible
venue for the festival.(Music365)

on the Web Radiohead performed a new track, expected to end up on their as yet untitled
follow up to 1997's OK Computer (due next Spring) during a bizarre webcast on the official

held up signs. Towards the end, however, the band performed a live version of the melancholy

Experimentation For Fourth Album
Rabbits turn on to Radiohead
Calgary Sun- It remains to be seen what albums from the 1990s will still stand out in 10
years time, but chances are Radiohead's OK Computer will be one of them.
While it's the perfect album to sit and listen to with headphones on, it's generally not
regarded as a very good dance record.
Denise Clarke disagrees.
"It's actually quite brilliant to dance to," says the choreographer and One Yellow Rabbit
artistic associate, who has turned the album into a "physical lecture" piece called
Clarke admits she has always wanted to create a dance piece based on her favourite albums,
but always thought better of it.
"All choreographers want to put on their favourite music and dance to it," Clarke says, "but
you quickly learn that that's 'gooby' and you shouldn't do that and not all theatres are
your living room, and it won't translate.
"There's been many, many albums that I thought would make a gorgeous show, but I've always
hesitated. So this is finally the time where I realized this is the one, I'll do it.
"It's a very soulful, beautiful, amusing and melancholic zeitgeist kind of an album."
The one-hour one-act show is split into two parts. The Lecture, where Clarke waxes
philosophical about the album, and The Rapture, where she "displays the CD" in a 53-minute
Radiohead has expressed interest in the project and the five members have been invited to

Radiohead Filmmaker Discusses Documentary
The filmmaker also became one of his own subjects when he taped the group's "No Surprises"
video, which he directed. In it, front man Thom Yorke wore a helmet that was slowly filled
with water. It makes for a great image in the video, but in Meeting People Is Easy, it's
harrowing to watch the singer hold his breath - and his composure - over the course of
nearly 50 takes that leave him coughing, sputtering, and near tears by the end.
"He's got an awful lot of pride," remembers Gee. "He's got a very good set of lungs, and he
can actually hold his breath for a minute and a half. So when we said, 'OK, you've got to
do it for 55 seconds,' he said 'OK, no problem.' And once he set himself up to do that, he
couldn't reverse himself. But it was just a horrible thing to do. After each take I was
like, 'Sorry, sorry, sorry.' I don't know if anyone will get it, but it's a way of reminding
people that the person who makes the film is as much to blame for the nonsense these people
have to go through as anyone else."(Wallofsound)

Helping Hands From Radiohead's Stickman
Radiohead's Phil Selway has been filling-up his karmic account. No, not because Radiohead
played the Tibetan Festival, but because the drummer is helping to launch a campaign by the
Samaritans, a British organization which works with troubled teens contemplating suicide.
They've set up booths at the Glastonbury Festival for the past twenty five years, but now
they want to spread their involvement to other summer festivals to help counsel distraught
fans. Selway has been a counselor for the organization for the past 11 years, manning the
suicide hotlines, but until now he has kept his involvement under wraps. According to the
BBC, Selway has decided to come out from behind the drum set now because he thinks his
celebrity will help the Samaritans reach more people: "When people are having a good time
around you and you're not feeling that way out, you can feel even more isolated, especially
because you're away from your normal home surroundings, away from your normal network of
friends, so there is a festival Samaritan branch."
"Talking through overwhelming problems and feelings, whatever they are, is a major step in
taking some control over them," Selway said in a recent statement. "But finding the right
person to open up can be very hard, especially for young people."

Radiohead's Yorke To Go "Coast To Coast" With Space Ghost Thom Yorke
What does it take to score an interview with reluctant Brit-rock demigod Thom Yorke of
Radiohead? Apparently, being animated doesn't hurt.
The Radiohead frontman has agreed to appear on an upcoming episode of the Cartoon Network
talk show "Space Ghost Coast To Coast" which airs each Friday at midnight.
Yorke, who often leaves interview duties to his bandmates, joins an impressive list of music
world luminaries who have visited the show, including Metallica, Beck, Method Man, and
Pavement, who were the first band to actually perform on the show (excluding Space Ghost's
tuneless sidekick Brak, of course).
Space Ghost Coast to Coast featuring Thom as guest won't be aired until this
Thom Yorke vs. Space Ghost Sources at Capitol Records, have confirmed that Radiohead singer
Thom Yorke will indeed appear as a guest on the popular Cartoon Network talkshow, Space
Ghost, though the air date is still "months away." Yorke recently shot his segment and now
the animation wizards are building an episode around him. We wonder if he'll use his
appearance as a forum for further dissing Microsoft boss Bill Gates (whom Yorke has called
"the most paranoid man on the planet").(Spin)
