Thom Yorke's new band

Recommended Posts

is anyone else interested? haven't been following him much since the eraser, but i started to hear some talk of a new project, and it looks like its a go. the lineup is Thom York, Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco. They just played a "suprise rehersal" at the Echoplex on Oct. 2nd.


from Stereogum:



This was not the low-key warm-up gig ("total chaos ... kind of a rehearsal") Thom promised. Attendees of last night's pre-Orpheum preview got a full (and by most (Twitter) accounts "awesome") 90-minute set beginning with The Eraser played by Thom's new group (Nigel Godrich, Flea, Joey Waronker, Mauro Refosco). This was followed by a solo performance of three new songs: tranquil piano ballad "Open The Floodgates" ("Don't bore us/ Get to the chorus"), potential Radiohead strummer "Lotus Flower," and Coldplay-esque "Skirting On The Surface" According to ateaseweb "Floodgates" and "Skirting" are actually a few years old, but were never publicly performed until last night. The band returned for a final segment during which Thom bared his chest Moz-style. They played Radiohead b-side "Paperbag Writer," "Judge, Jury, & Executioner" (intro'd as "brand spankin' new" -- i.e., not an alternate version of "Myxomatosis") and "The Hollow Earth"/"Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses" from the new 12" one could purchase on-site while rubbing elbows with celebrity attendees Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Spike Jonze, and Rosanna Arquette.

Few years ago this guy released that solo album of him singing in his whiny voice. It was ok at first but got old by 3rd/4th song. I only heard it in pubs though, so for me it was that background noise that gets irritating after you hear the same vowels and chords every other minute.


Radiohead was ok in my book.
