Radiohead set to write score for upcoming film
- March 18, 2006 10:54 CET Posted by Simon
After all the rumours flying about the place at christmas time about Radiohead writing the score for film A SCANNER DARKLY - it has now been confirmed that they are indeed providing the score - it is still unknown if there is to be any new material created or if older materiel will be used.

The film itself is by Richard Linklater, and has been described as "a cautionary tale of drug use based on the novel by Philip K. Dick and his own experiences." (Warner Independant Pictures)

If you want to see a trailer for the film, pop along to:

Alternatively, take a look at this right here - not sure if somebody made this themselves or not though....

Radiohead to Headline V Festival
- March 06, 2006 09:26 CET Posted by Simon
Hi guys, I'm Simon and I'm going to be helping our host to keep the news updated - pleased to meetcha :)

Radiohead are to be joined by Morrisey as headliners of V Festival 2006 - unfortunatly tickets sold out REALLY quickly, and you'll be hard pushed to find them, let alone afford them....

If you can get them though, the event kicks off Saturday 19th August in Hylands Park, Staffordshire and you can also catch Faithless, Beck, Razorlight, Kasabian, Paul Weller, Hard Fi, Keane, Bloc Party, Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada, The Charlatans, The Magic Numbers, Editors, The Ordinary Boys, Starsailor, The Go! Team, Rufus Wainwright, Sugababes, James Dean Bradfield, Kubb, Orson, The Feeling, Gavin De Graw.

This appearance also adds weight to the speculations that the next album will be soon released as surely it would make sense for the two to coincide? I certainly hope so anyway...


Radiohead stars to front Big Ask Live
- February 13, 2006 07:08 CET Posted by Miro
From Green Consumer Guide:

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood have been confirmed as the headline act at an exclusive concert in support of Friends of the Earth’s ‘Big Ask’ campaign. The London KOKO gig, taking place on 1st May, will be the main attraction of the ‘Big Ask Live’ event, designed to raise awareness of the climate change campaign.

The project was launched last year, and called on the Government to bring in a regulation to lower carbon dioxide emissions by 3% every year in order to tackle the issue as urgently as possible.

The best thing about `The Big Ask' for me is the fact that there's no longer this sense of powerlessness, which is what I had for so long about climate change, said Thom Yorke.

Hi guys,

I would like to apologize to all of you who open this website every day and look for updates. It's been really crazy lately. I have a lot of work all the time and I don't have time to maintain this website.

It would be great if there was someone interested to help me out with the news and other things, possibly someone who has a bit of html knowledge.

If you are interested please send me an email to miro@treefingers.com.

Thank you very much.

Radiohead gig makes way for orchestra rehearsal
- January 22, 2006 16:59 CET Posted by Miro
From the Irish Examiner:

British rockers Radiohead have had their request to perform two concerts in Chicago, Illinois' Millennium Park denied, so a local orchestra can rehearse.

Concert promoters acting on behalf of the Paranoid Android stars approached city bosses to propose two gigs at the park's Jay Pritzker Pavilion on 19 and 20 June, but were turned away because the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra is practicing on the second date.

From the Undercover Music News:

Former Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid has covered Radiohead’s ‘National Anthem’ on his next record.

Reid has completed his second Vernon Reid & Masque album for Steve Vai’s Favoured Nations Records. It will be his third album outside Living Colour, the band which he still considers his “mothership”.

The new record ‘Other True Self’ will also feature covers of The Tony Williams Lifetime’s “Wild Life,” and Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence”.

The rest of the album will feature Reid originals as well as songs written by Masque members Leon Gruenbaum and Don McKenzie.

Ed: Radiohead tour in May, New album producer
- December 22, 2005 11:15 CET Posted by Miro
Radiohead have revealed they plan to tour this spring, plus have given an insight into their forthcoming album.

The band, who have been working in the studio on new material during large parts of this year, say they will play some small scale UK dates in 2006 to unveil new songs to fans.

"We are going to tour next year, definitely," Ed O'Brien told Zane Lowe on his Radio 1 show last night (December 21). "Hopefully we're going to have a couple of tracks to download by about April or May. But we're going to go out in May, we're going to do some theatres because part of what we're doing is play new material. It's a good way to get your shit together."

O'Brien explained the band will do UK and European dates in May before heading to America in the summer. He said the band hoped they would have around ten new songs in their set by then.

Discussing the album itself, the guitarist said there was no confirmed release date yet, but said Radiohead planned more recording sessions in February.

"We've been talking to (producer) Mark 'Spike' Stent, who's worked with Madonna and Bjork and hopefully in February we'll reconvene with him," said O'Brien. "We've got some great songs but we won't release something we're not happy with. The thing with Radiohead is that each record has a different sound, it's really hard finding something that's different and sits well with us."

With the band planning to work with Stent, O'Brien confirmed their long-term producer Nigel Godrich would not be involved in the new record.

"It's not an end of an era, (but) part of what your realise as a band is that all those records you made with Nigel, apart from 'Hail To The Thief' we were a little bit in the comfort zone," he explained. "That's why you make records like 'Kid A' after 'OK Computer', that's why you make 'OK Computer' after 'The Bends', you've got to do stuff that you're scared of doing. With Nigel, we've been working together for 10 years, and we all love one another too much."

Radiohead and Richard Linklater?
- December 14, 2005 11:49 CET Posted by Miro
From Cinematical:

According to a tip received by the lovely and charming David Hudson over at GreenCine Daily, Radiohead just may be about to score their first film. And this isn't just any movie, it's Richard Linklater's adaptation of Philip K. Dick's A Scanner Darkly. Whoa.

Granted, this is a Rumor with a capital "R," but it's pretty exciting to consider. Hell, I'm an evil Linklater hater and even I would go see one of his movies if Thom Yorke had written the music. Dick is a genius at creating self-contained, eminently believable worlds, which is exactly what Radiohead's best music does - this is a proverbial marriage made in heaven.

Plus, the Radiohead-free trailer is already interesting, if you ignore the Winona Ryder emoting at the end. Man. If only one weird rumor turns out to be true this year, I sure as hell hope it's this one.

FACTION (29th October) is a collection of short films, projections and film poems by Patrick Jones; father, playwright, poet, speaker, teacher and film maker.

Patrick has developed writing groups, drama workshops, set up projects and so much more - in short he is a national treasure of positive history. Stark, chord striking imagery with soundtracks by Manic Street Preachers, James Dean Bradfield and Godl Speed Yr Black Emporer.

In true Artful style, these events will develop into completion over the next week or so...

Travel to the planet's Time Zone, Rocklands: Greenwich Station is approximately 10 minutes by train from London Bridge, or take the DLR from The City or East End if 21st century metropolis views are your thing. (psst, for the Saturday, Greenwich is a lovely day out and there are boats from central London during the day).

Greenwich Picture House : There will also be an evening of music, film (band videos included) and cabaret on Saturday October 15th - details of which are to follow.
