Present Tense

Thom Yorke performed solo this week at the Latitude Festival.  I wish I had been there. 

Check out his haunting performance of a new tune, “Present Tense”:

Thom Yorke just posted a link on Dead Air Space to the video of their performance with the USC Marching Band.

If you head to the Google video page you can actually download a high res version of the video!

Enjoy!

amid bonfire and fireworks in the UK
and the dawn of a new era in politics in the USA
i humbly donate a remix of harrowdown hill that was finished ages ago during the band webcasts,
a small reminder of the dark days of Bush’s….

Duplicate and Fireworks

Radiohead were in Montreal last night for part of their In Rainbows tour.  I was pretty far back but managed to catch this priceless moment… during Faust Arp Thom was distracted by the fireworks which you can hear popping in the background…. “duplicate and fireworks”.

It had been raining all day but we came prepared in our rubber boots and rain ponchos!  Just before the show a rainbow appeared in the sky and the rain slowed to a light drizzle.  Radiohead played a fantastic set including classics like Fake Plastic Trees and more recent favourites The Gloaming and Videotape.

To add an extra cherry to our already perfect day I got to stand near Win Butler of the Arcade Fire for most of the show.  I’m not sure how many of the band were there but I can confirm that he, Will Butler, and Richard Perry were in attendance!  Hard to blend into the crowd when Win and red-headed Richard are about 6 inches taller than everyone else.

Finally, some photos of the show… if you’d like some more photos of Radiohead in general check out this Flickr group.  Click on the photos for higher resolution images:

Radiohead tour details on Monday!!

I’m so excited!  According to Colin Greenwood Radiohead will be releasing more details about the second half of their tour in North America this coming Monday!  <insert happy dance here!>

Here is a taste of a live performance to get you in the mood…

Apparently Thom Yorke has been listening to an electronic band called Autechre.  Head over to their MySpace page and have a listen.

Pitchfork (my fabulous source!) had a chat with Colin Greenwood which you can check out here.
