Leave it to the NME to try and analyze each and every comment Thom makes on his web page at the official Radiohead site. Today the NME put an article here describing the latest posting that Thom made, in which he quotes a passage from a book by Malcom Lowry called “Under the Volcano.” The article then goes to question if road fatigue is the reason for Thom going “mad”.
The band have actually been having a good time on the road, and despite any reports or articles, they seem to be enjoying themselves. Phil made a brief appearance on the official message board the other day and said that it was “our best tour yet, i think – well the most enjoyable anyway.”

Sigur Ros opening for Radiohead UK dates?
Some of you may have heard that the very talented band from Iceland, Sigur Ros, might open up for Radiohead this Fall during the tent tour. This is from the website www.sigur-ros.co.uk:
“as far as the radiohead tour rumours are concerned, there is a chance that the band will support on the uk dates. they haven’t had an official offer from radiohead yet but are aware of their interest. georg said that they probably can’t play on the european dates due to prior commitments.”
Regardless, definitely check out this band!
