Radiohead - Creep

One of the biggest bands in the world, Radiohead, will make an exclusive appearance on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" Wednesday April 23 (12:35-1:35am ET).

The band - who made their network television debut on "Late Night" and were O'Brien's first-ever musical guest in 1993 - has recorded an exclusive live performance from their critically acclaimed and record-industry-paradigm-shifting release "In Rainbows" to air on O'Brien's contribution to NBC's "Green Week" of environmentally conscious programming.

Recorded live in London, Radiohead's performance of "House of Cards," represents an ongoing effort by the socially conscious band to act in the greenest manner possible. By opting to record this exclusive performance rather than fly over for a one-off appearance, the band - as frontman Thom Yorke notes in the introduction to their performance - avoided leaving a carbon footprint equivalent to driving one's car for a solid year.

Other guests on "Late Night's" "Green" show are a bit more literal - "Robot Chicken" creator and actor Seth GREEN and "Today" show travel editor Peter GREENberg.

Grizzly Bear plays Conan tonight (April 21). She & Him on Tuesday. Video of that 1993 Radiohead performance below....

What gets me about Radiohead is that they promised to be environmentally conscious, but do just the opposite:

http://www.radiohead.com/deadairspace/index.php?a=310

"To help achieve better results, we’re trying to play as many shows as possible in city centres because of their better transport links."

Instead, they are not playing any shows in city centers! Boston? No. DC? Nope. Seattle? No again. They are doing the exact opposite of what they promised.

Radiohead are like politicians, they say one thing and do another.

the reason they are playing Liberty State Park is because of all the public transportation

That's true, are Radiohead playing any cities during this tour? LSP is close enough to count, IMHO. I believe the SF festival is in the city, but everything else is not.

Read this article about the "Seattle" show:

thom was doing a hippie look back then...with the hair and the "groovy" pendant...a bit of freddie mercury vibe, too...

...as for the recorded performance, The Beatles did this about 400 years ago, when they sent over a tape to Ed Sullivan, instead of flying over for an in-studio performance ("Hello, Goodbye" i think it was)...

...granted, it wasn't because of their eco-mindfulness, but more because they were the Fab Four by that time and just couldn't be "arsed" to go to NYC for just one show...

I think The Beatles played teles as well.

Hey better yet, why don't they stop touring? That would be very eco-friendly....

you are all dumb. it's clearly neither a telecaster nor a stratoscaster but rather a meatball hoagie with extra marinara and melty provolone that mr. greenwood is stroking.

for Rain and Paperback Writer in '66, then for Hello, Goodbye in '67.
