Ed’s diary has been updated again. The band are back in the studio but Nigel, their producer, has had them working strictly with electronic equipment.
Nigel, who has been spending some time on the official message board lately, had this to add: “The works going well. Everyone had a good 2k and we’ve done a week back at our studio. Experimental electronica week it’s been. V interesting.” He also said, “We’re working hard on our new jazz funck direction which is and isn’t bringing forth goodies. Much fun stuff in the bag though I must say.”
Ed mentioned that “True Love Waits” has been given a new life, which is good news.

What does it take to score an interview with reluctant Brit-rock demigod Thom Yorke of Radiohead? Apparently, being animated doesn’t hurt. The Radiohead frontman has agreed to appear on an upcoming episode of the Cartoon Network talk show “Space Ghost Coast To Coast” which airs each Friday at midnight.
Yorke, who often leaves interview duties to his bandmates, joins an impressive list of music world luminaries who have visited the show, including Metallica, Beck, Method Man, and Pavement, who were the first band to actually perform on the show (excluding Space Ghost’s tuneless sidekick Brak, of course).
