The EraserThe Eraser

"Thom Yorke and Flea's new supergroup will play a Radiohead song at their upcoming debut gigs in Los Angeles., it's been revealed.

The as-yet-unnamed band's drummer Mauro Refosco told Brazilian website Abril.com they will play Thom Yorke's 'The Eraser' album in its entirety, four new songs and one Radiohead track at the shows on Sunday and Monday (October 4 & 5).

It's rumoured the band will air Thom Yorke's song he wrote for the Twilight New Moon soundtrack, 'Hearing Damage', as one of the "new" songs." [gigwise]

LA Weekly is also reporting that their might be a secret Thom Yorke show at the Echoplex this Friday night, October 2.

The new Twilight soundtrack, as you may have heard, also includes tracks by many familiar names including Death Cab For Cutie, Muse, Sea Wolf, Grizzly Bear & Beach House's Victoria Legrand, Bon Iver & St. Vincent, and Editors...

Speaking exclusively to Gigwise, Editors frontman Tom Smith said: "The films aren't aimed at people our age but I look at the bands that we're next to on that soundtrack and it's just a good thing.

"It's not selling out, it's not putting your song on an advert or selling a product.

"It's just being part of something that, to me, as collective seems like a pretty attractive thing."

New Moon is the second instalment of the vampire franchise, which stars British actor Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

you'd have to think two of the other new songs are "pulled apart by horses" and whatever the other one is called.

Oh, so you say it's not selling out so it isn't? You attached your song to a teenie vampire movie for money. That's what your music is about so man up and face it.

I'm 30 and I'm not your friend. You've all been brainwashed into thinking "selling out" doesn't exist anymore, that's why these bands fucking suck. No substance.

OK, so who should we be listening to then? You're obviously an expert, so please fill us all in, Mr Arbiter of Taste.

You're an idiot 10:27am.

Thom Yorke can do whatever he wants. Leave him alone while you're living in Bushwick. Trust me he doesn't care if YOU think he's selling out.

Now all the kids loving New Moon can get a better exposure to better music....

So you're saying Sea Wolf is selling out cause they're on the soundtrack? hahahhah I bet 90% of the people that buys this soundtrack never even heard of them.

hahaha 10:38 AM. leave Thom alone! HE'S SENSITIVE AND FEELS PAIN.

as if Editors had any credibility anyway. Tom Smith is right to say he did it to be part of the collective. Really, Thom Yorke lent this entire soundtrack credibility and with him on it, it's a no-brainer for the other artists to say yes to being involved.

"we'll pay you $5000 if you let us put your song in our movie"
"OK!"
(money exchanged)
SOLD OUT - plain and simple

since when is appearing on a soundtrack selling out?

You have no right to complain about anything if you didn't vote in Tuesday's special election.

if you're the guy from Editors, shouldn't you bathing Robert Pattinson's feet in tears of joy at the news that anybody remembers your band fondly enough to think you belong on the soundtrack of a popular film?

Posted by Anonymous | October 1, 2009 11:23 AM

whether you call it sold out or not, it doesn't matter. but the music environment is very different these days. bands don't make money off albums anymore, Radiohead/Thom Yorke being an exception. you can't hate a band for it. if you were in a band, you wouldn't do the same? that tracklisting looks awesome. i'm happy sea wolf and hurricane bells are on there. hurricane bells is Steve Schiltz of Longwave's new project. Love that guy. Yes, the movie's cheesy but this soundtrack deserves kudos on the quality front. those of you shouting "sell out" are self-important wish-you-could-sell-out dimwits.

"ooh, i can pass judgement on others that are doing bigger and better things than me so i can feel better about myself and my fragile ego. radiohead sucks, i'm awesome." losers for life!

Ehhh, I guess everyone forgot the Romeo and Julliet sountrack from the 90's.

Although I find it funny people are getting mad at this movie but didn't raise an eyebrow when it was Scanner Darkly, another major motion picture.

Perhaps I can guess: one movie was percieved 'cooler' then the other

radiohead songs have been featured in recent episodes of house and csi, i just think it's putting your music out there for more people to hear not selling out, should they hoard all their songs for just friends and family only?

If True Love Waits is in the repertoire, I will punch a puppy.

totally agree 12:27

I totally need to hear Radiohead while watching my programs because how else will I find music? I sit there with my laptop and as soon as I hear a song on the show I'm watching, I immediately buy it from iTunes and then download it on my iPod. I hadn't even heard of Radiohead until I heard it on House. That's basically where I get all my music, I have two playlists on my iPod: House and CSI.

Selling out means changing your style of music to fit whatever demands are given by a label or some other force. By some of your definitions, playing a show and getting paid for it is selling out. Come on!

So, I guess all the bands on the "Juno" soundtrack are sell-outs, right? And "Into the Wild"? And "Where the Wild Things Are"?

Posted by Anonymous | October 1, 2009 1:31 PM

Juno: Yes.
Into the Wild: Arguable.
Where the Wild Things Are: No.

Good litmus test: Does what I'm licensing my music to have any artistic merit?

Now, let's be honest, if you're a committed Twilighter, you surely already plunked down some cash for an opening weekend trip to the cinema and are counting the minutes until showtime. Everyone around are really into this whole vampire thing New Moon comes out Nov. 20th, and there are already New Moon reviews out. The consensus among critics is that the film – you’ll have to pardon the pun – really BITES. (How am I not supposed to make that joke?) Rotten Tomatoes along some of the really big reviewers have decided that the novelty has worn off, and are giving the film a hiding. If you got payday loans for camping gear to wait days for tickets, it might have been a waste.

Posted by NEW MOON REVIEWS | November 25, 2009 10:57 PM

Don’t care; I’m still going to see the movie. Critics will be critics and will always look for something negative to say. But damn, there are already a lot of people with pessimistic opinions about the movie. I mean, what did they expect? Were they expecting this movie to be the best movie ever made? Come on now. When someone has sky-high expectations, decent results become extremely disappointing.

I say sell out! Make money on your art. Did Andy Warhol teach us nothing? Art is not meant to be hung in a museum. It's also for the masses.
