Speaking to Gigwise, Futureheads‘ Barry Hyde acknowledged the changes in the music industry, but thinks that Radiohead are playing fair: They are in a league of their own. But what disappointed us was that they released it physically after. That was kind of hypocritical.”
As we know right now, Radiohead will not be playing Glastonbury (or are they?), but Emily Eavis (Daughter of Glastonbury organiser Micheal Eavis) told Orange World: “We love Radiohead. You know they will be back in the next few years but this year wasn’t right for them to do it. That’s why we have done something different, but (they) said they will come down and watch.”
CD Japan lists Radiohead as among the bands that will be included on an upcoming compilation called “Jazz and 90s.” No tracklisting is given, but Oasis, Jamiroquai, Lenny Kravitz, and Nirvana are the other 4 artists listed. It’s due out on April 2 for 2000 yen. [thx alex]
French actress Marion Cotillard is actually a Radiohead fan. The actress who has just won a Golden Globe and is an Acadamy Award nominee told USA Today: “I listen to Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Radiohead, some classical music. A lot, actually – the ones who stayed for a long time.” Then again she also said: “I love Toxic. Britney has some great songs”.
