John Frusciante must be pissed, no?
What should they call the band?
I vote for 'Yorkeism'
This is heading into full-blown side project territory now. Interesting.
...I'm never going to be able to get my head around this.
although they'll be hard to get tickets for
but liek you say, tickets will be scarce
play those UK shows
they will be scarce
it's a joy
the Eraser into some sort of comedy funk metal odyssey ?
A comedy funk metal odyssey like the last few RHCP albums?
Joey Waronker is a good drummer, too. He was in the Beck band, and he played with REM - which is probably how he met Thom, init?
RHCP make me do a little bit of sick in my mouth when I hear them.
That make it anymore palatable for you?
World class session hand. Toured with the Pumpkins and played with Johnny Cash.
It could end up making The Raconteurs look vaguely passable...
On paper it's "people who are all good musicians playing songs that Thom Yorke wrote". That is excellent.
Thom Yorke's vaguely dull solo output and his producer tring his hand at some muzak?
Sure, the drummer might be awesome, but it's just my personal idea of a trainwreck.
I'm sure it'll be great because normally everything Radiohead members touch is (or at least you have to go along with everyone and say it is for fear of being socially ejected), but it sets my pulse racing slightly less than a new series of 'Two Pints of lager and a packet of crisps'.
...Didn't you go to see Coldplay/Jay-Z/Girls Aloud recently?
It sure as hell beats watching a recovering heroin addict jazz wank himself up Yorke's rectum...
FINE! I'd rather watch a recovering heroin addict jazz wank himself up Yorke's rectum than watch
- Five girls WHO AREN'T EVEN ALL THAT - do a glorified karaoke before
- A guy talks over a tape, and then
- A band who were described as a watered down Radiohead back when they had credibility slog through the diminishing returns of their latest material...
...in an enormodome. Next to twats. And Richard Browne.
While you were watching that, I was watching some prog-metal at the Luminaire.
WHO'S THE LOSER NOW?!
Shu'up, it were good!
I'm no massive Chilis fan, but neither Coldplay, Girls Aloud or Jay-Z ever did a load of drugs and then wrote If You Have To Ask with a member of Funkadelic. That makes you Wrong. James Wrong.
At Meltdown. He was doing all his wierd headroll stuff as well.
are actually my 2 least favourite people in all of music
i've always hated him but saw him play with pati smith recently and he was great, really subtle melodic bass loops. i dont think he slapped once!
I think I repressed that
the better someone is at it the worse it sounds
and they never managed to capture it in the studio.
best bassist ever in my opinion. like it lump it, the chili peppers have three seminal albums in their locker, 1) blood sugar, 2) californication 3) by the way.
thom yorke is a genius - so this should be exciting!!! any uk dates?????
Really? EVER? Think about it dude, you're saying he's better than Charles Mingus.
Are you saying Charles Mingus is better than Tony Phillip Keal?
I'm just saying it's fucking absurd to say that Flea is the "best" bassist "ever."
there i said it!
Simple! Thom is tapping up Flea's friend Dave Navarro and is using Flea to get to him. When all that gets sorted out THEN we will have a band on our hands.
I really liked how he played solo at Latitude doing everything himself.
