Thom

Like Phil Selway, Thom Yorke has also been working on solo material. In fact, it was produced by Thom's new band member Nigel Godrich, and the official release date just so happens to be one day after the LA shows. Details below...

Thom Yorke - All For The Best

THOM YORKE: FeelingPulledApartbyHorses/The Hollow Earth

12-inch out Sept. 21
Digital single out Oct. 6

Dear Sir or Madam

This is to inform you of the release of two more bits of work shortly.
They are loosely under the Thom Yorke name this time, although these days its all getting kind of blurry. FeelingPulledApartbyHorses is written & played by Jonny and I and is a radical rework of an old tune that's been kicking around without a home since 2001? i think. The Hollow Earth is a bass menace that was born out of the Eraser period but needed a little more time.
Both were produced by Nigel Godrich as ever. And mastered by Bob Ludwig.
They are being put out on 12" with sliced sleeve by Stanley and Tchock.
My sources tell me this will be available from the 21st of September if you're interested...On sale in the w.a.s.t.e part of our website (with a gratis download.) Or you can go buy it in a good record shop if you are lucky enough to have one near you. Then later on there will be like a normal download thing i think around the 6th of Oct through the usual channels.

And so it goes. all the best

Thom

The above video is also new. That song is from the 2009 compilation Ciao My Shining Star. You may have seen it when it screened at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 20th (the show Frank Black also played).

WTF?!

This has potential to be an exciting group. Some of these guys have done great work in the past. Last night Flea and Joey Waronker, after meeting up for drinks and to discuss the band in LA club the Viper Room, went to each other's respective houses, quietly shut the door to their studios without waking up their wives/gfs, and slowly rubbed the penises to the sounds of thom yorke's voice on Eraser. As they both came into the plam of their hands, simultaneously in fact, they used their seed to practice their parts. If they change the arrangements of Eraser into a trippy, Air-esque type sound, we could be in for a treat.

12.31 is the best new commenter on BV.

You like how I left out the "cumrag" it was inspired by? That post is dedicated to the cumrag guy!

12:31 - Amazing piece of work.

And, super group my culo. It's Thommy and sidekicks.

Can just see him throwing a hissy fit every 5 minutes.

wow, i actually think that the commenter known as "12:31" is the opposite of witty. between the lame new obscene frat-boy posts and the "meh" person/people, the humor level on bv has taken a serious nosedive. even the "daft punk" comments were funnier, and those weren't funny at all.

also, it's filled with spelling and grammar mistakes.

12:31 - no need to practice your "letter writing" day job here.

Two people in famous bands does not make a supergroup. The rest are just studio guys.

Joey Warnoker has toured and played with Beck,Patti Smith, Elliott Smith and REM. Sounds pretty impressive to me.

At 12:57, capitalize the first letter of each new sentence.

also, the penis/cum jokes on bv really belie the level of creativity present among these posters. in that sense, it represents brooklyn well.

Thom Yorke solo is like Sting without the rest of the Police. Generally pretty bad.

I read 12:31 and then I sprayed the screen.

"Two people in famous bands does not make a supergroup. The rest are just studio guys."

"Joey Warnoker has toured and played with Beck,Patti Smith, Elliott Smith and REM. Sounds pretty impressive to me."

I added a "?" after "supergroup"

Joey Waronker played in Walt Mink.
Walt Mink was an excellent band.

While I agree, the "meh" comments are not funny and never have been, the masturbation themed meta-critisques are amusing, and not at all "frat boy"-ish. the first one i read made me laugh out loud, since the comment is insightful commentary (something not many commenters at all do, just complain), sandwiching Genet-like prose exposing the readers' placing rock stars on pedestals, making saints out of the underdogs.

Why does this need to happen? I don't understand why.
