solo

Philip SelwayAaaand we’re back from a short break…

While we were gone, it was announced that Philip Selway would be doing a couple of solo shows in Oxford this month. The Radiohead drummer writes on Dead Air Space:

Hello

Next month, on the 10th and 11th November, I will be doing a couple of shows of my solo material at The Pegasus Theatre in Oxford to mark the start of their 50th Anniversary. I’m a patron of the theatre and these shows are fundraisers to support the fantastic and really valuable work that Pegasus does in providing access to the creative arts for young people. It’s a wonderfully intimate place to see a show, so if you fancy coming along, I’d love to see you there. Tickets cost £25 and are available from my store here:

Philip Selway’s “Familial” Out Now

by Jonathan on August 31, 2010

Today marks the release of Phil’s solo album, Familial, in the United States. It was released yesterday in Europe. The Village Voice spoke with Selway about the shift from Radiohead drummer to solo singer-songwriter for Familial. The Voice‘s Vijith Assar says of the album : “Elliott Smith’s influence runs strong on these delicately strummed tracks, Selway’s quiet whisper cooing over songs steeped in striking sentimentality.” Selway talks about the new album, including his passing percussion duties along to Wilco’s Glenn Kotche, in an interview at villagevoice.com.

Here’s the tracklist:

  1. “By Some Miracle”
  2. “Beyond Reason”
  3. “A Simple Life”
  4. “All Eyes on You”
  5. “The Ties That Bind Us”
  6. “Patron Saint”
  7. “Falling”
  8. “Broken Promises”
  9. “Don’t Look Down”
  10. “The Witching Hour”

We suggest you go out and purchase it now. You can get it on iTunes, Amazon, or your local record shop.

Selway and his band make their way to Ireland this weekend for the Electric Picnic at Stradbally Hall, as part of their month-long tour.

Thom announced on a newly redesigned Dead Air Space that he will be performing at a Green Party benefit concert in support of Tony Juniper. Juniper is campaigning to become a member of parliament and also accompanied Yorke when he crashed the UN climate change conference in December.

Thom writes:

Hey-
I’m doing a low key solo thing at the Cambridge Corn Exchange on the 25th of Feb.

It’s because a friend of mine Tony Juniper (who used to be head of Friends of the Earth and who i went to the Copenhagen Summit with) is hoping to become one of the first Green Members of Parliament in the UK.
And i wanted to help him out somehow.

I think he’d be a great MP as he knows a lot about dealing with the murky brown waters of politics when it comes to the environment, but has a positive energy with a healthy contempt for the way they operate. And wouldn’t it be nice to have someone there who is actually doing more than paying lip service to climate change? And maybe rip shit up a little?

Now normally i wouldn’t get involved in politics like this… but lets face it.. it aint labour or the tories is it?!? so..
and anyway he bought me a pint and twisted my arm. it’s a slippery slope i know.

what else do i have to say? oh yes the proceeds from said event go to the Green Party of which Tony is a member.
and support will be offered by local person Pete Um.

tickets will go on sale from the waste shop tommoro at midday.

now remember it s a local gig for local people………….. err like me.

Ticket information can be found here.

Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses

by Jonathan on September 22, 2009

Lot’s of Thom news lately, huh?

In case you’re living under a rock, two new Thom Yorke tracks were released. The song “Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses” was released on limited edition 12″ vinyl last week. If you haven’t heard the song, which used to be called “Reckoner” before the new “Reckoner” was recorded, then take a listen below.

There is also a video for the flipside track, “The Hollow Earth”. It was created by Raymond Salvatore Harmon and uses imagery from Banksy. From what we understand, this is not an “official promo” for the song.
