  • poisoned_dwarf

  • Jesus

  • Earl

    Please somebody have the full show for download. Please?

  • Tricia

    I like the new song, wish I would’ve been there.

  • Kid C

    I assume that the new song is a Thom Yorke song and not Radiohead? Either way, I like it and would be interested to hear a studio version.

  • Daniel

    Beautiful. Although, It has more of an Eraser feel to it (and not just because it’s only Thom Yorke) than it does Radiohead. I can imagine this with a repetitive drum beat and some glitch in the background.

    Either way, my opinion is this song is beautiful.

  • Ky

    found the show download on this blog

  • Kristin

    i can’t believe how beautiful the present tense is!

  • here is a very good quality version of Atoms For Peace. check this guy’s YouTube profile for the rest of the videos from the same show.

    I was there and it was so beautiful. All the other big name acts took late-night slots, but Thom evidently picked the midday slot on the last day to avoid sound pollution from other stages, and treated us to a heartfelt, informal, stripped-down set.

    I screamed myself ragged for an encore… and squealed when we got one.

  • Tania

    I love the new song .. it’s so beautifull … I can’t wait for an studio version .. doesn’t matter if it is from Thom or Radiohead


  • Charlie Phillips

    does anyone know what type of keyboard/synth that is on top of the wooden paneled one? I’m curious, he used it at the Cambridge Corn Exchange too.
