Thom Yorke Speaks About New Radiohead Remix Album

Now all seven 7″ remix vinyls are released and the collection of all remixes will be released on a double album, Thom Yorke speaks out on all those remixes.

The 19 remixes will be out on the forthcoming Radiohead remix album ‘TKOL RMX 1234567′. Thom Yorke explains: “The remix 12′ s came out of us wanting to experiment with the tunes further.”

The Radiohead frontman continues: “I was really curious to see how the people I was listening to so much would use what we gave them. I didn’t just want floor fillers and all that shit, I just wanted to see how the songs could really branch out and mutate.
I love that there is such a culture of remixing at the moment, all this flow of ideas. It may come outta the club scene but to me there is a lot more to it than that.
I think it appeals to us as a band at the moment that ideas and versions are not so fixed and set in stone, it feels kind of healthy for music.”

TKOL RMX 1234567 is out worldwide on October 10th and available for pre-order.

  • Yeah, if you want your music raped.

  • Where did this statement come from? I’d like to quote it on the Wiki page but need a source. (not sure if AtEase counts as reliable)

  • Radiohead are in a really bad place right now when they are trying to score cool points and talking about how exciting remixes are.

    BE A FUCKING BAND!! WRITE SONGS! FORGET DJ’S AND WANKY CLUB FADS! BE TIMELESS!!! BE RADIOHEAD AGAIN!

  • Totally agree. I like those remixes (although i don’t love them – tkol is better than any of those remixes).

    And now time for the haters ;)

  • someone had it right earlier, TKoL is the trunk, all remixes are branches, but Radiohead seems to nurture those branches more than the mother trunk?

  • makes sense

  • It’s nothing to do with trees it’s just about shit remixes. Remixes have always been shit.

  • hmmm. not sure i like all of them- but four tet’s version of separator is my favourite- would love to see what he’d do with ‘give up the ghost’ as well though..

    so.. what are your favourite remixes? and which remixers would you like to do which tracks?

  • was really expecting flying lotus to do one- reckon he’d do something very nice with ‘feral’…

  • The people who enjoy these remixes are usually people who like to dance. Those people are out dancing to the tunes while most of us who enjoy opinionating are in here complaining how life isn’t what we thought. I think I’m at fault here. I think I asked for this. Sorry guys.

  • i find the only one of these is from the musicians i already enjoy – the Caribou and Four Tet remixes – don’t care for the rest because i don’t care for the artists

  • you lot really do sound pathetic. i don’t mean to be harsh but, coming for a radiohead fan, i really think that the majority of these comments are depressingly narrowminded. why on earth should a remix be labeled as ‘shit’, ‘rape’ or a ‘wanky club fad’? please try to enjoy music for what it is and not what you stereotype it to be. also, don’t be content with four tet, caribou, and all the other big names (whom i love) when the new artists are often those with the most original ideas. i’m sorry if this sounds patronising but your comments seemingly deserve it.

  • Fantastic stuff. They all sound really good. Perhaps they are not everybody’s thing. That’s ok.

  • I like the way turtles swim. I like to see them walk.

  • rmxs was fucken pointless. peepz whoz defendin them be fuckin clowns with low standards.

  • seperator hebden was good tho

  • I think The Eraser remixes were much better. For me, TKOL ones were disappointing right across the board. Jamie XX’s effort was pretty nice, but nothing brilliant.

    It’ll be weird when this comes out, it’s the first Radiohead-approved album I won’t be buying.
