Thom Yorke's New Band

Radiohead's Thom Yorke has enrolled a new band to perform his solo material. The band (pictured above) consists of himself, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Beck/R.E.M. drummer Joey Waronker, percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Mauro Refosco, and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on bass. Two shows have been scheduled for October 4 and 5 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. Yorke is quoted saying ""the set will not be very long cuz ..well ...we haven't got that much material yet!" It will be interesting to see how Flea's slap bass, funk styling will mesh with Yorke's psychadelic crooning. Perhaps the eccentric bass player will hold back a bit and mostly stay in the pocket.
