Planet Telex is reporting that “the next UK single from ‘Amnesiac’ will be ‘I Might Be Wrong’. It will be an 8-track EP with a mixture of new studio tracks and live tracks, which is likely to include versions of ‘Like Spinning Plates’ and ‘True Love Waits’.”

Additionally, the UK music industry magazine, Music Week, is saying that the single will be released in the UK on October 15. {thanks to Graham}

A video for “I Might Be Wrong” will also be released.

XFM Top 104 List
Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ has crashed into the top spot in this year’s X-List. Coming in at No. 25 last year, ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ knocked last year’s winners, Radiohead , off the top spot. They do manage to cling on at at Number 2 although not with the X-List 2000 winner, ‘Just’ but with ‘Creep’, up 34 places from last year. Here’s how Radiohead did:

#2. Radiohead – ‘Creep’ (last year: 36)
#9. Radiohead – ‘Just’ (1)
#16. Radiohead – ‘Paranoid Android’ (New)
#37. Radiohead – ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ (16)

Radiohead Confirmed to play Saturday Night Live

Radiohead has been confirmed to perform Oct. 14 on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” program, in support of the U.K. act’s long-awaited fourth album, “Kid A,” due on Capitol Oct. 2 internationally and a day later in North America. The brief U.S. visit will come less than a week after the band wraps a month-long European tour with a three-night stand Oct. 5-8 in Kildare, Ireland. The trek begins this Friday (Sept. 1) with the first of two shows at the Tredegar House in Newport, South Wales, U.K.

No proper North American tour dates have yet been scheduled, although rumors are swirling that Radiohead will turn up for surprise shows in New York and Los Angeles while its members are in the U.S. Billboard’s Sept. 16 issue will feature an interview with the band.

– From Billboard.com

Can’t make it to a playback of Kid A? No sweat…

The fine folks at chartattack.com will be streaming the whole album on September 18. In order for you to listen, you have to be a member of their eChart newsletter. You can subscribe to the eChart for free by going to http://www.chartattack.com/newsletter/. Information will soon be mailed to you about the streaming party and also to links to more Radiohead blips.

Radiohead is in Time

That’s right… you heard me. The Oxford five have made it into the pages of Time magazine. The September 4th issue, which features upcoming Autumn musical releases, has this to say about Radiohead:

Rock is dead. Rock is alive. Meaningful music is over. Meaningful music never mattered more. The British band Radiohead’s new CD, Kid A, out Oct. 3, arrives like Mark Antony delivering Caesar’s funeral oration: it comes not to praise rock but to bury it. The songs defy convention and categorization: one track, The National Anthem, begins like a full-on rock number, with a throbbing bass guitar and aggressive percussion, before the tune bursts open and jazzy horns tumble out. This is an album about atmosphere and mood, not easy hooks and catchy choruses. Listening to Kid A is like hearing one’s own heart– you feel every beat intimately. And you never want it to stop.

Watch Juice

Make sure to keep your eye on www.juice.net today as they were one of only three media publications that were granted an interview with Thom Yorke. The other two were Q magazine (UK) and Spin (US). Juice, an Australian magazine, has this on their site:

Radiohead`s eagerly awaited new album is on its way and JUICE magazine has just completed one of only three interviews with Thom Yorke worldwide — and it`s an Australian exclusive!

Last night, our roving journo in the mother country, Lauren Zoric, sat down with Thom Yorke for a DNM (deep and meaningful) chat at a Cardiff cafe. It was Yorke’s first interview to promote the album and one of only three worldwide he has agreed to. The others are for Q (UK) and Spin (US).

Zoric, still on cloud nine after her major score, described the interview — which lasted for more than an hour — as “revealing.” We’ll have more details to tantalise you with tomorrow, so watch this space.

Well, a new year! Just think, I can now say that the new album will be released this year! OK, enough!

The Grammy nominees were announced yesterday and Radiohead has been nominated for their tour documentary, Meeting People is Easy. The film is nominated for the Best Long Form Music Video award. Other nominees include:

Don’t Stop (Gloria Estefan), The Making of “Ride With Bob” (Asleep at the Wheel), Band of Gypsys – Live at the Fillmore East (Jimi Hendrix), and Popmart – Live From Mexico City (U2).

You can catch the Grammy Awards this February 23, 2000. The complete list of nominees is listed here.

And now for the polls…
Amazon.com recently featured their “Best of the Millennium” poll and Radiohead’s OK Computer came in at #20.
French monthly mag Rock & Folk has their “Ideal Record Collection of the Century.” OK Computer, along with other released albums, were chosen for the best of 1997. [thanks Xavier]
Canada’s music channel, MuchMusic, has Radiohead’s “Just” #12 in their top 100 videos of the century. [thanks Michael]

And finally, the Jubilee 2000 Coalition has recently put out the “People’s Millennium Write-down Book,” a book in which people can write down their feelings about debt in the third world. Thom, who supports Jubilee 2000, wrote this in the book:

ÏAAAAAAARGH Dinosaurs are roaming the earth. Stop them before they destroy us all !!!!! Please realise we the population of this planet are very concerned about the faceless unaccountable forces now ruling the planet like giant cranes roaming the earth kalasnikovs in hand killing indiscriminately. Please help us… thank you.”

You too can sign the book and show your support for this important organization. There are many locations throughout the UK in which you can sign it. Go here for the locations. You can also sign it online here.
