set by the world's leading designers, advertising and business professionals
and cover a wide spectrum of creative disciplines and industry sectors.
This year's roster of sponsors includes brands such as Cobra Beer, Eurostar,
Grazia, Ford, Hamleys, Lonely Planet, npower, MTV, Puma, Red Bull, Shelter,
"Winning a D&AD Student Yellow Pencil and being featured in the

The Eraser entre en el número
2 del Billboard americano
Thom Yorke has entered the US Billboard charts at Number Two
with his solo debut 'The Eraser'.
Radiohead's previous album - 2003's 'Hail To The Thief' -entered the
chart at Number Three, while 2000's 'Kid A' entered at One.
Radiohead are set to headline the V Festival, which takes place between
August 19-20 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire.
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 original release.
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 recordings.
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)

Thom Yorke "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 empezar.
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
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 right.
ok then thats that.
i think its out in july and im pretty certain XL are going to put it

y The Coral. El álbum esta disponible desde el 9 de septiembre en

· 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
· Artists who have given over their time for free to record
Radiohead ~ Gorillaz ~ Razorlight ~ Kaiser Chiefs ~ Magic Numbers ~
Bloc Party ~ Keane ~ The Coral ~ Manic Street Preachers ~ Damien Rice ~
· 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 album.
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
The full list of artists contributing to 'Help: A Day in the Life'
is as follows:

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)

Thom Yorke y Jonny Greenwood
tocaron material nuevo en el concierto que ofrecieron en el Royal Festival
Hall de Londres el 27 de marzo junto a la London Sinfonietta
RADIOHEAD PLAY NEW SONG
Members of RADIOHEAD have debuted new material on stage in LONDON tonight
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

He joins a host of stars including Chris Martin, Jamelia and Michael
Stipe for the new series of 'Ever Felt Dumped On?' photographs to raise
awareness for its ongoing Make Trade Fair campaign to reverse the crippling
inequalities in the international farming trade.
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 ever getting off their knees and from ever being able
to compete and get PAID, erecting barriers and then DUMPING on them from
a great height whilst feigning concern? How delicious is it to know that
sweet taste in your mouth is one of slavery, a nice new economic model?
"As it melts in your mouth, how sweet does your chocolate taste, now
you know the suffering that it took to get to you?"
Other pictures in the campaign see Chris Martin covered in rice, Colin
Firth showered in coffee, and corn raining down on Antonio Banderas. To

An album's worth of unheard RADIOHEAD
songs, recorded while the band were still called ON A FRIDAY, has reportedly
surfaced 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 year.
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.
The songs are:'Keep Strong' 'Somebody Else' 'I Want To Know' 'I'm Coming
Up' 'Jerusalem' 'What Is That You Say' 'Something To Hate' 'I Can't' 'Without
You' 'Give It Up' 'How Can You Be Sure' 'Everybody Lies Through Their Teeth'
'Rattlesnake In The Big City' The tracks can be downloaded via the unofficial
band website, www.ateaseweb.com . (NME)

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)

'SMALLVILLE', a forthcoming television series about the early days
of KRYPTON orphan SUPERMAN.
The band feature as the hottest ticket in town on the website for the Smallville
Ledger, a local newspaper created by producers Warner Brothers as a promotional
If fans click here, they will
be taken to the Ledger front page. Beside a story about the local bank
being held up by arch-villain and Superman nemesis Lex Luthor runs a headline
reading 'RADIOHEAD'S METROPOLIS CONCERT QUICKLY SELLS'. The story explains
how Smallville's "favorite band" sold out a show to help launch new local
radio station K-Row in 12 minutes at the LuthorDome. According to the Ledger
"fans camped out for days before the seats went on sale" to see the "revered
U.K. rock band."
In the series, which has already begun in the US and is due to be broadcast
by Channel 4 in the UK in the New Year, Superman, as plain old Clark Kent,
is played by newcomer Tom Welling. The show focuses on his difficult teenage
years, spent coming to terms with his extraordinary powers. (NME)

Nuevo video de Radiohead realizado
Hardstaff con 8 minutos de durancion es una mezcla de los temas Pulk/Pull
Revolving Doors y Like Spinning Plates ambos de Amnesiac. El tema del video
ronda las relaciones hombre- maquina, biotecnologia y manipulacion genetica.
RADIOHEAD have reworked and amalgamated two tracks from their 'AMNESIAC'
album for a specially commissioned video, which has been produced by the
company behind APHEX TWIN's 'WINDOWLICKER' and BJORK's 'ALL IS FULL OF
LOVE', NME.COM can reveal.
The short film to accompany the combined version of 'Pull/Pulk Revolving
Doors' and 'Like Spinning Plates' was unveiled last night (November
29) as the highlight of the inaugural Projectors Animation Festival held
at the Centre For Contemporary Arts in Glasgow.
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
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 consumption.

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 (July 7).
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)

According to First Assistant Hudson County Prosecutor Terrence Hull, there
were "no signs of trauma" on Maguire's body, nor were there any initial
signs of drug use.
An official cause of death has yet to be confirmed, but sources at
the state Department of Environmental Protection, who look after the concert
venue, claimed Maguire "suffered from some sort of seizure".(NME)

JONNY GREENWOOD has said RADIOHEAD have written "lots" of new songs
for a their next album, and would like to undertake a UK tour in 2002.
Speaking in a recent webchat with fans, the Radiohead guitarist said that
the group had " lots of new songs written" for the follow-up to this year's
acclaimed 'Amnesiac' album. He added that the group are in the process
of "working out arrangements" for the songs.
Radiohead have performed a number of unreleased songs as part of their
recent tours, with fan favourites including 'Big Ideas', 'Reckoner' and
'True Love Waits'. Of 'True Love Waits', which the band have been playing
recently across the US, Greenwood said the band can't decide how to approach
recording the track.
Elsewhere in the chat, Greenwood said that the band were hoping to
play more live shows in the UK next year, but warned that "there are no
plans after October". (NME)

RADIOHEAD 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
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 de semanas.
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 escenario.
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 evento...

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

to be tied to any kind of corporate branding. So as long it's free of anything

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
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 Cycle" (244,698).
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 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 our heads."
"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,"
"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,

Anyone Can Play Radiohead : A Tribute To Radiohead June 2001
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 is not only a
bold new step for Cleopatra Records, but stands to redefine the tribute
album 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 Radiohead truly transcends all barriers
in the realm of high-quality, meaningful music.
On June 15th the Underground at Tempest will play host to Cleopatra Records
official Anyone Can Play Radiohead record release party. This event will
feature album giveaways as well as live performances by October Hill &
Silent Gray, both of whom are featured on the tribute. Entrance is $5 for

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
"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
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?

as much. That's a bit confusing. There aren't as many neuroses. It's not

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

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 were very excited about going to No. 1 when we were over here at the
time and this tops it 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
and sometimes it's nice to have a bit of a party."
album "Kid A" both reached the platinum level in the Recording
Industry Association Of America's (RIAA) latest round of certifications
and was certified last week for U.S. sales of 1 million copies.

DAMON ALBARN and THOM YORKE are being touted
as guest vocalists on the new album from hip hop duo HANDSOME BOY MODELING
A spokesperson for Tommy Boy Records insisted that
the Blur and Radiohead frontmen were definitely slated to appear on the
duo's as-yet-untitled album, although could not confirm whether or not
the sessions had yet been recorded.
Handsome Boy Modeling School are Prince Paul and
Dan 'The Automator' Nakamura, who has previously worked with Albarn on
the Gorillaz .
However, Albarn's spokesperson said the suggestions
were "completely false," while Thom Yorke's said it was possible, but could
not confirm it.

Radiohead: New Songs at Sundance? It never
stops. According to comments from 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 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 weeks later."
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 aired. "(NME)
THOM YORKE 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 A'."
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 existence".
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 fighting...
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 BEATLES.
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 head.
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
Ed added that they were haunted by the phrase "wilfully

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

NIP BEATLES' HEELS IN GREAT ALBUMS POLL
The Beatles supremacy as the greatest group of
all time is being challenged by Radiohead, according to an authoritative
survey to be published on Thursday (September 7). Although the Beatles'
'Revolver' retains the top spot in the new edition of the Virgin All Time
Top 1000 Albums, compiled by author Colin Larkin, Radiohead score two album
in the top five. 'The Bends' is at number two and the Oxford group's 'OK
Computer' is at number four in the survey. Beatles' albums complete the
remainder of the top Five, with 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'
being nominated in third place and 'The White Album' placed at number five.

New Radiohead Track
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 band site (www.radiohead.com).
According to those who were lucky enough to catch it, the event consisted
of lead singer Thom Yorke playing records and dancing, while various people
held up signs. Towards the end, however, the band performed a live version
of the melancholy track "Knives Out," which, of course, was instantly copied
onto sound files. If you're not concerned with perfect sound quality, you

Stretch 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 Radioheaded.
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 movement piece.
Radiohead has expressed interest in the project and
the five members have been invited to see the show. However, there have
been no solid plans made for them to attend.

How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

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)

members of the "Indiearistocracy" and put a sock in the mouth of critics
who had dismissed them as one hit wonders. Guitarist, Ed O' Brien, reveals
all about the turbulent times surrounding Radiohead at the time of making
'The Bends' - an important work in its own right it's the album that laid

John Leckie, NME Editor Steve Sutherland and Kelly Jones of the Stereophonics.
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
"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
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 August.
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)
