Bodysong review in Cleveland Scene

Cleveland Scene (Ohio, USA) reviewed Jonny Greenwood's Bodysong: "The U.K. documentary Bodysong is the visual equivalent of Radiohead's last few records: A Guardian review described the film as a "free-form collage of images" that "strive to evoke a poetry of the human body with ideas about birth, death, sex, violence, and dreams." Naturally, Jonny Greenwood -- Radiohead's lead guitarist and sound manipulator of its chaos theories -- scores Bodysong with instrumentals perfectly encapsulating its hodgepodge style. Alarmed squawks from saxophones and trumpets drive the fussy free jazz of "Splitter," short-circuiting electronic sparks and guest Colin Greenwood's bass blotches perforate the ominous "24 Hour Charleston," and "Bode Radio/Glass Light/Broken Hearts" jumps seamlessly from Enoesque synth ambiance to strings resembling a tragic silent-film score. With no lyrics distracting from the music, Bodysong resembles a purer form of Kid A in the way its sparse structures provoke intense visceral reactions. Like every successful score, Bodysong intrigues even outside of the theater." [thanks Alex]

Bodysong reviewed in Billboard

Jonny Greenwood's Bodysong got a review in Billboard: "While composing music to accompany the dialogue-free tour of the human experience that is the film "Bodysong," Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood made a decision. Since the images themselves did not repeat, why should any of the soundtrack? Indeed, there are no recurring themes to be found here. Rather, Greenwood (with assistance from the Emperor String Quartet on several cuts) indulges Radiohead's most experimental leanings on a series of concise pieces. Strings buzz behind a solemn melody on "Moon Trills," while gauzy processed tones conjure an ominous vibe on "Clockwork Tin Soldiers." Uppity percussion is the sole force at work on "Convergence," while electric bass battles a banjo on "24 Hour Charleston." "The Bends" this is not, but Radiohead fans will revel in an unvarnished peek at Greenwood's musical mind-set."

West Wing: 'mindnumbing Radiohead show'

Last night on the 2/25 episode of TV series 'The West Wing', Radiohead got a mention. The White House deputy chief of Staff, Josh Lyman, had to spend a day in a military base-closing commission, and he said that it would be, "About as mindnumbing as a Radiohead concert." Quite interesting... or maybe not ;)

Short update [thanks Ethan]: The actor that plays Josh Lyman was in the third row right at Radiohead's Hollywood Bowl show last year and seemed to love the gig...CJ, Alison Janney, was there the 2nd night as well, dancing throughout the whole show....

Thom: "Not doing a new album, we're out of contract"

Last night's interview with Virgin Radio was actually very very brief. It was a Q & A with Thom asking if he expected the two NME awards. Thom: "No, fuck no. Especially not the video one". Virgin Radio also asked Thom how work on the new album was going. Thom: "Not doing a new album. Because we're out of contract, so we go in our studio and make some stupid noises and then...

Stephen Fry praises Thom Yorke

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, actor Stephen Fry said he was not too fond of Sting, but more of a Yorkesman. From the Mirror: Of course, there are a few people worthy of Fry's admiration but, sadly, singer Sting isn't one of them. "I always feel self-consciousness within him. Sure, he's got a nice voice but contrast him with Radiohead's Thom Yorke, who is a seriously impressive young man, and you sense his air of falseness even more keenly." [thanks 11 to 11]

Radiohead in 'New Statesman' article

Radiohead are mentioned in a 'New Statesman' article on Curtis White's book 'The Middle Mind: why Americans don't think for themselves': The highway of despair. Oprah Winfrey and J K Rowling are the villains; Radiohead are the cultural revolutionaries. The latest howl of rage against capitalist culture and American mediocrity exemplifies the sentimental, self-indulgent non-thinking it sets out to attack.

Elsewhere in review: "With the public safely elided, it is a straight fight between capitalism and its stooges and cultural revolutionaries such as Radiohead. 'In these inspired moments of Mahlerian sweetness the band rises above the shit of our shared condition. (What else does Mahler try to do, in symphony after symphony, but dramatise this shared desire?)' Right, and Wagner is heavy metal. Radiohead, it should be said, are not with Rupert Murdoch. They are with EMI. 'We are obliged to create our art though international mega-corporations,' White imagines them explaining themselves, adding that maybe they are self-indulgent - 'But hey, some folks are.' A genuine radical would have paused to wonder whether being 'obliged' to pocket millions might make their sweetness part of the shit."

The Curtis White book has an entire chapter on Radiohead - mostly in defense of Kid A, and the artistic risks that the band took while making it. The full article will be published in 'New Statesman' on February 23rd [thanks Alex & Jonathan]

Pop's eating itself, say Radiohead

From the BBC: Radiohead have been moaning about the state of the music industry. They're particularly fed up with all the singing reality TV shows and how the contestants are groomed - saying they're trying to make them all 40 year-old stars like Annie Lennox.

Jonny and Thom really rate Alex Parks whose single 'Cry' is out this week, and say it's a shame she could only get a deal through appearing on 'Fame Academy': "She's got a ******* great voice and if this is the only way she can get out to people it's a shame because there's really something going on there and people will dismiss it because it's that."

"If that's the only way to get exposed now then there's something seriously wrong with the music industry."

"I'm against the safety of it all. The industry sort of eating itself whole seems to be depressingly pointless."

The petitions creator says he wants at least five thousand signatures before sending it to Radiohead management, to do this he and some of his colleagues will be going to local universities and other landmarks around Auckland to gather support."

Kashmir on Radiohead

Kashmir's Kasper Eistrup said in an interview with The Age: "It's unavoidable to be influenced by Radiohead. They are such an enormous inspiration to so many young musicians. I think they had a way of bringing thoughts back into rock music. They made it possible to do something like we have done.

"The funny thing is, when I hear some of Radiohead's stuff I think to myself there are some of these songs that we could have done ourselves. I am not trying to sound arrogant but we have been around for a long time."

Thom & Jonny interview in NME

There's an interview with Thom & Jonny in this week's NME:

Have you got a message for the NME readers?
T- Jonny?
J- What can I say? It’s nice for people to have patience with what we’re doing.

Its ten years since you last came to the awards, Thom
T- I know, we’re old. U2 were here I think last time. I had a video camera. I remember getting back home with the videotape and I’d just recorded this women’s breasts because it was on while I was talking to her. I showed it to my girlfriend, she wasn’t impressed.

Do you still remember saying the NME Awards were going to send shockwaves though the music industry?
T- Who said that?

You did. We have it on tape. Who would your God Like Genius be?
T- Whoever turns up! How about the Pixies? They’re reforming. We’re playing with them.
J- Steven Malkmus. I’ve been listening to him loads.

Who should win NME Awards next year?
T- I really like the Franz Ferdinand record. And I like the Liars. I think they could do it.

What have you been drinking?
T- Wine, but it’s awful!
J- We just did a really terrible thing. We just went out to get our own. We’re going to come back with a carrier bag full of booze.

Have you met any rock star pals today?
J- Most people we recognise, but we work out in Oxfordshire. We don’t really know anybody.
T- We’re not allowed to admit that we don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about. Ha Ha!

Anybody here you’d like to make a record with?
T- We’re kind of not collaborating at the moment. We’ve got this whole thing where we go into the studio on different days and do different things and we’re not comparing what we’re doing.

How did it feel to win album of the year?
J- We know we can try people’s patience and it’s nice to know that people still have patience.

Those Little Britain Boys were very affectionate to you.
T- Ha! He was going to do it. He was trying to give me a full-on smacker. I didn’t want one.

We’re sure the pictures will appear somewhere on the Internet.
T- I know.

The Darkness slam 'boring' Radiohead

The Darkness have slammed Radiohead - their main rivals at this year's Brit Awards - by calling them boring. Guitarist Dan Hawkins told Netzeitung that Radiohead couldn't hold up to the stage antics of his brother Justin.

He said: "Most of these modern bands are so unbearably serious they leave me cold. Radiohead are totally boring. "The world needs a showman like Justin who puts on his monkey outfit and entertains people. I haven't bought anything by these modern bands in a while. They're all wet rags."

Hawkins added: "Bands like Radiohead are great for our business, of course, because there's been a total Radiohead-isation of the British music scene. Coldplay, Turin Brakes, Starsailor - all of these groups have put together their selection from the Radiohead menu." [from ananova, thanks Dermot, Espen & Ivan]

Bodysong reviewed in New York Times

Jonny Greenwood's 'Bodysong' has been reviewed in the New York Times by Jon Pareles: "When Jonny Greenwood performs with Radiohead, he spends some time at his keyboards and guitar and some time on his hands and knees, working effects pedals to create the foreboding aura that envelops Radiohead's songs. His instrumental soundtrack for "Bodysong," a documentary about human life from conception to death, largely sets aside song forms for experiments in ambience.

Its tracks are like the protoplasm of Radiohead songs: a slow sequence of piano chords with hovering strings in "Moon Trills," spattered layers of percussion in "Convergence," glassy synthetic tinkling that turns into a somber march in "Clockwork Tin Soldiers," yearning melodies scored for string quartet in "Iron Swallow" and "Glass Light/Broken Hearts," and muscular jazz-quartet vamps in "Splitter" and "Milky Drops From Heaven."

Radiohead fans should be fascinated by the panorama of Mr. Greenwood's musical laboratory, and it is clear how much he contributes to Radiohead's haggard beauty. On its own Mr. Greenwood's music conjures disquiet, serenity, turbulence and glints of wonderment. The entire album can be heard online at" [thanks Alex & Mike]

Jonny Greenwood interview with Billboard

There's an interview with Jonny Greenwood with Billboard's Jonathan Cohen: Most sidemen dream of the day when they can step into the spotlight. But not Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood. "There doesn't seem to be a point in doing a bad indie album with me trying to sing on top," he says with a chuckle. "That would be terrible for everybody." Instead, for his first outing away from the British band, he chose to score indie documentary "Bodysong."

Out Feb. 24 on Capitol, the album pushes beyond Radiohead's most experimental leanings with moody electronica and string-laden instrumentals and only two tracks that feature guitar. For much of the score, Greenwood collaborated with the Emperor String Quartet.

Capitol opted not to promote the project as a solo album and will not sticker it in stores as a Radiohead tie-in. "It's important to understand that this is the score to a film, not a Jonny Greenwood solo album," VP of global marketing Rob Gordon says.

But the label is taking advantage of Greenwood's built-in fan base. "Since the album has been available since November as an import, we wanted to give fans a chance for something unique, and a limited number of seven-inch vinyl records with B-sides will be available at indie stores."

Capitol's Web site hosts a dedicated "Bodysong" page offering an e-card and screensaver, while is featuring the film's trailer. Label personnel have been out in full force "at Sundance, art-house theaters and concerts," Gordon says.

A deal is being finalized for the movie, which is directed by Simon Pummell and produced by Hot Property Films, to screen on college campuses and in theaters in April or May. The showings will lead up to Radiohead's lone 2004 U.S. concert appearance, May 1 at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif.

To accompany the film's dialogue-free, rapid-fire visual tour of the human experience, which compiles archival images, Greenwood veered far from the conventional scoring path.

"A normal film tends to have two or three melodies repeated over and over," he says. "So one of the hardest parts was knowing you couldn't have the same themes or music coming back in after half an hour, because the whole idea of the film is that there is no repetition."

Thief Is King of Think-Rock

A 'Hail to the Thief' review from Up & Coming Magazine: "Yes, Radiohead is probably the most socially aware "rock n' roll" band out there today. Yes, the title of the CD is a swipe at President Bush. Consisting of Thom Yorke, lead vocalist and frontman; Jonny Greenwood, guitar; Colin Greenwood, bass; Ed O'Brien, guitar; and Philip Selway, on drums, Radiohead's latest release makes reference to the (then, at the time of recording) impending invasion of Iraq - the band citing Bush as the Thief of Baghdad - as well as the 2000 election. To say that Radiohead is a politically motivated and socially conscious band is like saying The Beatles made a hit song or two." [read it in full]

Rights of Radiohead footage at Montreux sold

According to The Times (January 30th), a little-known independent British music business has beaten the world’s main record companies in securing the rights to thousands of hours of footage of artists, including Radiohead, who have played at the Montreux Jazz Festival.

The festival has agreed to a multimillion-pound offer from Eagle Rock Entertainment, based in London, to market the footage for DVDs and television. Terry Shand, the executive chairman of Eagle Rock, said the company planned to spend “tens of millions of pounds” over the coming decade producing more than 100 DVDs of the concerts that have played at the festival over the past 37 years.

He added that reproductions of the concerts would be be made only when the company had secured agreements from the record companies behind the various artists. [thanks Alex]
