Radiohead get together this week to discuss plans for rest of the year

Radiohead have enjoyed their week in New York City with shows at Roseland Ballroom and their TV appearances (Saturday Night Live, Colbert Report and Jimmy Fallon), and are making plans for the rest of the year.

On playing the two recent New York show, Colin Greenwood told NME: “We’ve not had much of a chance to play ‘The King Of Limbs’ live. There was the Glastonbury performance, but with our own shows we can have the full production. We’re getting together this week to talk about our plans for the rest of the year. We’re having a brilliant time, so obviously we want to keep it going.”

When asked about Clive Deamer, who was the second drummer at the shows, Colin said: “It’s every bass player’s fantasy, being surrounded by all this amazing rhythm stuff. An ongoing arrangement? Yes, it’s working out great. Obviously Clive steps aside when we play the older stuff. But it’s been a lot of fun – we’ve known Clive since about 1995,” he concluded.

Commenting on the Wall Street protesters – Radiohead were rumoured to play last Friday – Colin stated that he sympathized with the protesters: “Of course. I understand people feeling frustrated with Wall Street, anyone would be, especially as those institutions were bailed out by taxpayers’ money. I don’t think that’s a controversial thing to say.”

  • First!

    Deamer, by the way, not Dreamer.

  • i wish they would come play in dubai

  • So where’s the proof in that article that Radiohead are getting together to discuss their plans for the year? That’s the headline of the article but seems a bit spurious, not mentioned at all in the NME article.

  • Yeah, I clearly am retarded. Sorry.

  • Amnesiac What?—>retarded

  • Amnesiac What?—>i agree with the first part, not the second, and not the third.

    they need another album to mask the disappointment of TKOL
    I wish to see a concert but wish not to see them play TKOL from start to finish. but i say that with every new album.
    i dont mind them releasing it independtly. i dont like the sticky touch of a label. the marketing and the dollars and cents.
    ALTHOUGH, radiohead have found ways to market themselves which is still kind of sticky and gross. they sure do love NBC/Universal and Dr Pepper.

  • @Amnesiac What? – TKOL isn’t that interesting to me anymore, and it wasn’t very interesting to begin with either. But watching them perform it on Colbert was interesting. The songs take on a life of their own live and it would be amazing to see them performing TKOL in person. I would even go as far as to say I’d prefer seeing them Live than another album. Besides, I think everyone knows that it would take RH 2-3 years to put out another album, because they’re obviously not just gonna walk into the studio and record a bunch of songs. Radiohead has an existential crisis every time they approach a new album, and it takes time for them to reinvent themselves. I certainly hope that’s the case here coz I don’t want a TKOL version 2.

  • [...] @AtEase Traducción: RadioheadPerú [...]

  • @Amnesiac What? …calm down. even if you get your new album … maybe you don`t like it… stop complaining and asking for shit. if you don`t like some stuff just let it suck.

  • **** Radiohead has an existential crisis every time they approach a new album ****

    humm….. I didn’t know that! I wonder why?

  • I think they are just original as anybody else can be.

  • Radiohead’s music speaks for their emotion, I can feel that sense of crisis in their music…, to be honest, it’s highly contagious….

  • ……and then I wonder if writing music would help them letting out their emotion and creativity, or is there any other antidote needed to minimize their crisis?

  • I just copied and pasted…… Sorry.

  • Hey Pat

    Are you a boy or girl?……. SNL

  • I think what “Amnesiac What?” meant was no solo albums. If so, I agree fully with “Amnesiac What?”‘s sentiments.

    I want another great, long album. And no touring because that drives the band away from one another afterward, hindering their work. And solo albums are much less good than just Radiohead work.

  • @Muldfeld

    I have no more words.

    You typed them all……..

  • How about we just let the band do whatever they like, I mean come on guys. That’s what always made Radiohead good anyway, let them enjoy touring TKOL if that’s what they want to do right now. If that’s what they need to write another great album afterwards, it’ll be worth the wait.

    How can anyone tell a band they don’t even know personally to not to go touring because it’ll ” hinder their work”? that’s just crazy, if they enjoy this album right now touring IS their work. Give these guys a break.

  • I hope the new album has lots of guitar.

  • I woudn’t mind a short album with:

    - Big boots
    - New song
    - Follow me around
    - I froze up
    - The present tense

    before the summer tour 2012.

  • To be or not to be……

    ps.
    if Radiohead comes before Shakespeare, what would Shakespeare write?

  • I still love electronic music, but I also miss simple clear organic acoustic sound.

  • Uh will i be shot if i say ilove all radioheads albums, and TKOL is actually pretty good in my mind? i’m dearly sorry for liking it but u knw… its America and stuff.

  • Injektilo – MTL: I couldn’t agree more

    WHERE THE FUCK IS BURN THE WITCH?

  • WHERE THE FUCK IS BURN THE WARLOCK?

  • Never been a fan of SNL, now I know why.

  • The Present Tense.

  • they need more stuff like house of cards, wolf at the door

  • big boots should be recorded.

  • staircase/daily mail

  • Hopefully item one on the agenda is Get Over Fucking Remixes.

  • I would much prefer a new cd than a world tour

  • mews.
