Thom Yorke forms new band, announces two nights in Los Angeles
When word came of Thom Yorke’s latest solo endeavors earlier this month, word also came that the Radiohead frontman might tour in support of the release.
Well, as it turns out, a Yorke solo tour, or whatever you call two dates in Los Angeles next month, will indeed be happening.
Thom, take it away…
in the past couple of weeks i’ve been getting a band together for fun to play the eraser stuff live and the new songs etc.. to see if it could work! here’s a photo.. its me, joey waronker, mauro refosco, flea and nigel godrich. at the beginning of october the 4th and 5th we are going to do a couple of shows at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. we don’t really have a name and the set will not be very long cuz ..well …we haven’t got that much material yet! but come and check it out if you are in the area. we’ve also got locals Lucky Dragons playing.
all the best
So, to recap, just in case you missed any of the above thanks to another of those Radiohead induced comas, Thom Yorke, along with drummer Joey Waronker, percussionist Mauro Refosco, bassist Flea (of Red Hot Chili Peppers duh!), and longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, will take to the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles on back-to-back nights in early October for performances featuring material from Yorke’s solo album, Eraser, and his recently released 12″, but because this apparently isn’t much material, it won’t be very long. Oh yeah, and Lucky Dragons will be opening.
