Radiohead Thom Yorke tour

“Eraser Band” to do small gigs in April, Radiohead busy in the studio

During Thom’s co-host stint earlier this morning on Gilles Peterson’s show, he dropped the following news:

“The Eraser Band that I got together, we’re going to do something, hopefully in April. Just small gigs, and then maybe that’s going to lead somewhere as well – there’s lots of stuff going on.”

While pursuing his solo project, Yorke assured Radiohead fans that the band are still keeping busy in the studio: “There’s a lot that’s underway at the moment. My trouble is trying to keep up, but I prefer it that way.”

It was announced yesterday that Thom’s “Eraser Band” will be performing at Coachella April 16-18.

Radiohead bag Best Act In The World Today award

Despite leading the field of hopefuls with three Q Award nominations, Oasis failed to collect a single gong, losing the much-coveted Best Act in the World Today award to Radiohead. The Oxford rockers were presented the award by cult comedians The League of Gentlemen at a star-studded ceremony attended by the likes of Moby, So Solid Crew and Ms Dynamite. It is the second time that Radiohead have won the award in two years, having originally collected it in 2001 off the back of their critically acclaimed album, “Amnesiac.” “A lot of the time when we’ve made records, we think we’ve done the most stupid thing we could have possibly done,” said a very quiet Thom Yorke. “So things like this mean a lot to us otherwise we wouldn’t have the confidence to do it because that’s what we’re like.”
