Radiohead were the musical guests for the season premiere of Saturday Night Live last Saturday. The band played two songs, “Lotus Flower” and “Staircase.” Both performances are below for you to watch.

As a reminder, the band will be guests on the Colbert Report tonight and play two NYC shows this week. It’s Radiohead week in New York!

And for giggles, here are some promos:

The Thom Yorke Dancing Meme

by Jonathan on February 22, 2011

We resisted as much as we could to post this, but it has to be done. With the release of the “Lotus Flower” video last Friday, the Internet has exploded with a new meme of people taking the video and having Thom dance to different music. Below is a sample of what is out there for your enjoyment. Let’s never speak of this again, okay?

‘The King of Limbs’ out now! New Video! Hurrah!

by Jonathan on February 18, 2011

This week has been full of surprises to say the least. We woke up this morning to find that the new Radiohead album, The King of Limbs, was available to download a day early. If you pre-ordered, head on over to www.thekingoflimbs.com to get your copy now. If you haven’t purchased the album yet, get over there now! What are you waiting for?

The King of Limbs by RadioheadHere’s the tracklist:

  1. Bloom
  2. Morning Mr Magpie
  3. Little By Little
  4. Feral
  5. Lotus Flower
  6. Codex
  7. Give Up The Ghost
  8. Separator

What does The King of Limbs mean, anyway? According to Wikipedia, the name of the album possibly refers to an oak tree in Wiltshire’s Savernake Forest, thought to be 1,000 years old. The tree is a pollarded oak, referring to an ancient technique for harvesting timber for fencing and firewood. Though it does not feature on maps, the tree is said to be 3 miles (4.8 km) from Tottenham Court House, where Radiohead recorded part of their previous album In Rainbows.

We were also thrilled to see that a video was posted for “Lotus Flower” this morning. It was produced and directed by Garth Jennings. Check it:

What do you think? Tell us your thoughts about the album in the comments. Enjoy!
