England is reeling in the wake of Glastonbury Festival 2014, such a large congregation that it is temporarilly the third largest city in the south of the country. Hundreds of thousands of people flock to Glastonbury to see their favourite musicians roll out the big hits in front of heaving crowds, the same thing happening at other festivals around the world over Summer each year.
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke recently dished out advice for teenage girls, along with longtime Radiohead collaborator and fellow Atoms for Peace member Nigel Godrich for Rookie magazine, in a rather uncharacteristic Yorke turn. The best part about it is that both of them never got snide and were just extremely earnest. In response to a […]
Matthijs Vlot has done the ingenious by sampling Lance Armstrong’s confessional interview with Oprah Winfrey to create a spoken-word mashup of him lifelessly mouthing the words to Radiohead’s self-loathing anthem Creep. Probably no better candidate to, too. Bonus: the bit where he goes ‘Oprah, you’re so fucking special.’
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke’s side project, Atoms for Peace, has an album out in February next year, and longtime collaborator Stanley Donwood is helming the lithographic artwork for it.
After postponing seven European dates following the fatal stage collapse incident at Toronto’s Downsview Park, Radiohead played their first rescheduled show in Nimes, France at Les Arenes. The band paid tribute to drum technician Scott Johnson with the video screen filling up with his picture towards the end (watch for the 3:36 mark) of their […]
Quinton Sung’s 8-bit versions of Radiohead’s Kid A and OK Computer have been circulated and recirculated like crazy around the Internet. No Surprises – sorry, couldn’t resist – there. These take us back to the late 90s AND classic arcade games at the same time.
When so many modern bands strive to sound like Radiohead, its easy to forget that modern music stems from jazz and blues. A new site has no such amnesia. The Good Music Fox shares its love for new works bluesy and traditional. There are no electro-blues-click-grime hybrids here. This is a site for purists.
I am interested in sustainable music. I want to know if it is possible to keep a band in motion across the world using the same amount of energy it would require to keep them alive (and well) at home. There was a big rush of this in the early millennium, everyone from Neil Young to Radiohead had a Biodiesel tour rig, but like most trends it only took a few years for the “green rock” to disappear from the mainstreams of information and our collective imagination.
This is awesome. YouTube user OHADI22 has spent a good portion of time splicing together 36 of the many cover versions of Radiohead’s acoustic epic Paranoid Android to create the ultimate YouTube cover version. We salute.
Thom Yorke has put quite a spin on dancing in Radiohead’s latest video, Lotus Flower. It’s the best thing since Elaine’s Seinfeld dance. I love the tune and admire this man’s never-ending bravado. I just don’t recommend any other male to repeat Thom’s moves in the club.
Wow, this killer cartoon video by Kota Totori has my head spinning and my feet tapping all the same time. Yes, multi-tasking has never been so fun.
I had an ex-girlfriend who was a noise musician who really hated Radiohead, and it made me embarrassed a little to like them as much as I did, and I honestly stopped paying close attention to them after Kid A (mainly because I got into way more esoteric music), but this video rules and Radiohead […]
You know those moments when everything just seems to lock in like giant pieces of a sprawling jigsaw puzzle, even though those pieces were never originally meant for each other? No? Well, now you do.
