Thom Yorke Band – Live at Echoplex, LA – live report

echoplex setlist thom yorkeThe extra warm-up show at the Echoplex in Los Angeles last night was not as short as Thom Yorke said it would be. The show included two encores, introducing the audience with four new songs.

The show attracted a lot of celebrities including Spike Jonze, Rick Rubin, Dangermouse, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, members of Daft Punk, Sonic Youth (Kim Gordon), Muse (Matt Bellamy and Dominic Howard) and Rage Against The Machine (Zack De La Rocha). Probably all invited for the after party which was planned as well.

The band with Nigel Godrich, Flea, Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco basically played Thom Yorke’s album The Eraser in full and in order. A solo encore followed with four completely new songs. It’s not clear how many of those are Thom Yorke or Radiohead songs. Thom played ‘Open The Floodgates’, ‘Lotus Flower’, ‘Skirting On The Surface’ and ‘Judge, Jury, Executioner’. The latter is also the alternate title of Radiohead’s ‘Myxomatosis’ (from Hail To The Thief), but several people have confirmed it’s a completely new song. ‘Skirting On The Surface’ is a song included on the ‘In Rainbows’ recording sessions, but was never played (or released) before. ‘Open The Floodgates’ has been floating around since Radiohead’s 2006 tour. The song was soundchecked (with drums) at Bayside in San Diego on June 27th, 2006 and never heard from again. Until last night.

Thom asked the rest of the band back on stage, played the Radiohead b-side ‘Paperbag Writer’ and closed the show with the two tracks from the new 12″ vinyl; ‘The Hollow Earth’ and ‘Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses’. Copies of the 12″ were sold at the venue for $15 each. Here’s the full setlist… and check videos of ‘Skirting On The Surface’, ‘Paperbag Writer’ ‘Open The Floodgates’, ‘Lotus Flower’, ‘Harrowdown Hill’, ‘The Eraser’ below.

  • my frail heart is unable to take in all these news

  • Is he running out of ideas? He already wrote a slightly different version of that song. . . .

  • that was a really beautiful song.

    sounds like another one he had though

  • that sounds like a mixture of “the present tense”, “these are my twisted words”, and “follow me around”

  • [...] show in LA tonight at the Echoplex in preparation for the two shows on Sunday and Monday. Thanks to At Ease we have a setlist and a video of a brand new song, Lotus [...]

  • Oh my God..
    So Great tracklist… I’m sorry I haven’t been there..

    visual setlist. Judge and Jury was full band.

  • this song is about radiohead i guess. it’s beautiful.

  • I HATE people who talk during songs. What’s the point of going to a precious concert that so many fans want to see, if you’re just a casual jackass there to be cool. Screw off and wait outside or go to a bar or something to socialize. So freaking selfish! I can’t emphasize enough how much I HATE these people!

  • (ALL CAPS!!!)

    Why the hell are people chatting away during the song?? Damn people… if you go to a gig, shut the hell up during the songs!

  • heh… Muldfeld. Beat me by a minute.

  • was at the show. Blew my mind. Heres a link to “Open the floodgates” and I’ll have “Lotus flower” up later as well as some others

  • Theres Lotus Flower http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITd_JRz8f3g

  • Thom Yorke is creatively dead.

  • Not a bad song, but a bit repetitive…
    The people talking makes for watching that video very unenjoyable. If I were there around those people, I don’t think I could have stopped myself from telling them off.

  • Khristopher, I agree… why come to the show and talk instead of listen… you ruin it not only for yourself but for those around you as well. Discussion for how awesome the music is can wait until in between songs!

  • not catchy but mental

  • Is it “The Hollow Earth” or “Hallow Earth”?? I think Lotus Flower is amazing by the way.

  • Cool show

  • I know this guy who’s going and doesn’t even know Thom’s name, has only listened to radiohead in passing (mmm..probably doesn’t even know creep is by radiohead). Yet has front row tickets for the sunday show. Be sure to kick his ass for me if you see him! hahahahaha

  • OMG!!! Lotus Flower, his voice is so so so breathtaking!!!Thanks for uploading this whoever did it.

  • where are the videos of the eraser?? harrowdown hill? and it rained all night with flea?? damn people get on that.

  • These new songs rule.

  • I want to cry!
    So jealous….
    He is exquisite.

  • That cymbal rush performance blew my face off. Amazing. But why would they stop filming at the grand finale of the song?!

  • Here are some pictures I took from my iphone, so they’re not the greatest quality…

  • ahhh… the kind soul taping cymbal rush had his battery die at the peak of the song.

    but jesus christ they sound good. nice kick in the ass to radiohead, good news all around.

  • Setlist above slightly out in order. i was there…this was it.

    Thom didn’t playing Judge, Jury, Executioner by himself.

  • I was also at the show, which was totally awesome, and it’s worth mentioning that there was a woman behind the barrier shooting video the whole time. When I asked her what she was doing, she something about a documentary but I couldn’t catch the rest because it was so loud in there. Anybody got some info? It’d be great to see this performance again in higher quality than fan vids.

  • I also asked her where I could get ahold of the video and she said it was for a film…then she got on stage and went to the back after the show. My guess is it will be of the 3 shows in LA??

  • OOOHHH MMMYY GOOOOSSHHH!!!!!I’M JUST PISSING!!!!I’M SO HAPPPYY!!!!AWESOME!!!SHOW!!!!WHY JUST 15 DOLLARS?IT’S TOOO CHEAP!!!!WISH I COULD BUY THIS VYNIL!!!OR JUST BE THERE!!!BUT IT’S TOOOOFAR FROM ME!!!!RADIOHEAD ARE THE BEST IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!!!I LUV THEM VERY VERY MUCH!!!AND I UNDERSTAND THEIR FABULOUS SONGS!!!!ANY DON’T FORGET ABOUT THOM’S UPCOMMING BURTHDAY!!MAKE PRESENTS AND CONGRATS!!!!PREPARING…

  • Not bad for a being a “rehearsal”.

    I can only describe Fleathom & Company’s show as being.. what’s the word..

    ..oh yeah..

    Historic.

    But seriously, what’s up with Thom exposing his bare-chest Moz-style?

    o_O

  • Gosh Diane… no need to wee.

    Make sure you upload the footage to facebook if you do though (just for your friends mind).

    Bands always break up due to “creative differences”… Radiohead had a good stint.

  • L.A people SUCK so so so bad…

  • But seriously, what’s up with Thom exposing his bare-chest Moz-style?

    Because Thom is a sexy mofo!

    Panacea, time will tell if Radiohead continue their stint. They can’t be written off yet.

  • Always loved Paperbag Bag writer – Finally hearing a live version is excelent!!! As for Thom’s new songs. I wasn’t really expecting anything spectacular and I’m too fussed about those particular numbers. Seemed like a good gig for all concerned. Great band.

  • Lotus Flower is like Follow Me Around worked into a useable song. This and Present Tense should be destined to be on the same record. Love Floodgates too. Angelic voice on display there. Though you can tell it isn’t written fully yet.

  • Nice compilation of videos from the show here: http://thedumbingofamerica.net/2009/10/03/weve-got-highlights-thom-yorke-echoplex/

  • enjoyed it a lot __hollow earth and feeling pulled apart BH really do sound great live _and the contagious mood of flea enjoying the set_everything_great support of the band and really really enjoyable ! ! i
    i _personally _need to be in a show_ i wish they ll tour later _sounds like a family+_____

  • Can I just be first to laugh at the idea that Matt Bellamy might have been invited to an aftershow party?!

  • [...] Daarna volgden nog de banduitvoeringen Radiohead b-kantje Paperbag Writer (uit de Hail To The Thief-tijd) van onlangs gereleaste nieuwe nummers Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses en The Hollow Earth, die beiden vooral dankzij het fenomenale drum- en percussiewerk live ronduit spectaculair klinken, zoals hieronder te zien en te horen is. De setlist dankzij fansite At Ease: [...]

  • type some English damn you

  • Seriously wtf is it with these jerks
    talking during the song? I tried to get
    tickets for this freakin show!! I’m a
    teacher, so I had my students do busy
    work while I attempted. But these ass
    holes get tickets and are freaking
    talking???? Soooo mad. I should’ve been
    there!!!

  • the person who said “thom yorke is creatively dead” is totally barking… he’s at his absolute peak…from these videos you can see he is in his total element. fantastic stuff mr yorke…fantastic.. just keep doing what your doing. everyone else just left to catch up…

  • Is this the best band in the world right now?? It could be.

  • He seems so full of energy in these videos, which is in stark contrast to his Reading performance. He seems to have found a spark with this new project.

  • I can’t express how much I want Thom to get as far away from the LA music scene as possible. I fear it could ruin him…….at least in my eyes ;).

    Amazing set…….

  • Thom Yorke from Radiohead

  • @ManhattanHoosier…

    LA Music scene? ? You must be talking about the 80s cause there hasn’t been an LA music scene or at least not one worth mentioning in quite a long time.

    Not unless Thom is trying to start one.

  • so there is no Thom solo version of Judge?
    i’m trying to figure out if any of these are the new song i heard thom singing at the Houston warm up on the last tour.

    i still haven’t gotten any help of this or found out if it was bootlegged.

    if anyone knows PLEASE help me out!
    it will haunt me all my life…..or when i think about it.
