Thom Yorke forms a band with Flea…-WTF?!
I’ve recently seen some pictures of a Mr. Thom Yorke of Radiohead strutting about Los Angeles, CA. He recently did a and has been seen out and about in the city of angels. But now we’ve discovered why he’s spending a lot of time on the left coast. It will blow your mind.
has reported that Thom has formed a band with longtime RH producer Nigel Godrich, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, drummer Joey Waronker and percussionist Maron Refosco. Thom wrote about this over at Radiohead’s :
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!
