Radiohead news in brief

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”.

Ah, well… For those who’ve – for whatever ever reason – have not been paying attention the past week: Tickets for the shows for the first leg of the US tour in May go on sale tomorrow. So if you’d like to see Radiohead in West Palm Beach, Tampa, Atlanta, Charlotte, Bristow, St. Louis, Houston or Dallas, check a Ticketmaster outlet or Ticketmaster.com. All tickets go on sale at 10am (12 noon for the Texas shows). They’ll be gone in a flash.

  • I don’t think it was hypocritical at all, they were just trying something new, and always had the intention of releasing it as a physical release. They know in order to sell really well, you still need to release it physically. Not everyone in this world is tied to the computer 24/7 or even has an mp3 player.

  • Ditto. How is a physical release hypocritical? Radiohead made no pretentions about anything really. They just offered their album at whatever price folks were willing to pay. I’m glad they had a physical release. Screw that purely digital crap. I hate that stuff. As Radiohead said, by only having it available online, they were excluding many people who don’t have high speed internet and the most up-to-date computers. I hate listening to music from my computer.

  • A CD is purely digital BTW.

  • They said they released a physical album because they knew that everyone does not have an internet connection. To not do so would be pretentious.

  • a ” is missing in the introduction ;)

  • Who ever heard of an album that wasn’t physically obtainable. That would be so bad. That’s like writing a book and only releasing it over the internet in like a PDF file or something, that’s no good, you need to be able to flick those pages man. Otherwise it almost ain’t real.

  • Radiohead said all along that a physical release was planned for after the digital one.

    The whole thing wasn’t a big ‘fuck you’ to the industry… it was just a sideways step to try new avenues

  • I by and large don’t post in Blogs. Nonetheless, your blog forced me to! Awesome work.. Keep it coming! Well Wishes!

  • I visited many web pages except the audio quality for audio
    songs existing at this web page is really excellent.

  • Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to generate a top notch article… but what can
    I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

  • What’s up, everything is going nicely here and ofcourse every one
    is sharing data, that’s genuinely excellent, keep up writing.
