Thom Yorke to debut supergroup of sorts

by on Oct.01, 2009, under Good Music

thom yorkeThe other day on the Radiohead blog, Dead Air Space, Thom Yorke made the announcement of a yet unnamed new band he has assembled to perform the music from Yorke’s solo disc, The Eraser. Apparently, their first public jaunt will be two shows at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles on October 4th and 5th. (Geeze. Thanks for the short notice, asshole.) If you’d like a ticket, knock yourself out here, you lucky bastard.

And just who will be playing in this group of super friends? Here’s a list, with accolades:

Flea – of the Red Hot Chili Peppers
Nigel Godrich – producer of Radiohead, Beck, Pavement, Paul McCartney, etc.
Joey Waronker – long time drummer with Beck
Mauro Refosco – David Byrne collaborator

I suppose it is worth mentioning that Refoscoe is also in a band called Forro in the Dark. They’re not too everpresent yet, but are working on it and making great strides.

So that’s that. Let’s hope it goes over well enough that they can maybe get that act going somewhere other than stupid Los Angeles.
