Scott Walker on Thom Yorke
As earlier reported, Radiohead will be part of this year’s Meltdown 2000 Festival, hosted by 60’s legend, Scott Walker. In the latest issue of Time Out, London’s Entertainment Guide, Mr. Walker commented on Radiohead and specifically Thom:

“I feel honoured that they are going to be here. They’re a perfect integral band. They also possess the great lyric singer of his time. The thing about lyric singing is not particularly the voice, its phrasing and you can’t teach that. Thom Yorke happens to have both.”

World renowned photographer, Rankin, will be staging his Celebration Exhibition — an alternative collection of his portraits which show celebrities relaxing instead of posing in front of the camera. This exhibit will take place at The Proud Galleries (UK) during the month of April and will include a photo taken of Shirley Manson. Other artists that Rankin will include in the exhibit — and a subsequent book — include Mel C, Thom Yorke, Tricky, REM, Daniem Hirst and Beck.
