Atoms for Peace Thom Yorke

Flying Lotus & Thom Yorke at Trader Joe’s

Well, not really. Flying Lotus, who has been getting a lot of press recently, told Rolling Stone that he had a dream about Thom Yorke right before he was asked to be the opening act for the Radiohead frontman on the Atoms for Peace US tour.

“It was weird,” Lotus tells RS as he does the dishes in his Los Angeles apartment, just back from the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, where he demolished a Wednesday 1 a.m. set to an adoring crowd of converts. “I had a dream I was an accomplice to some murder. I saw someone get killed and I didn’t say anything. I was walking the streets with it in the back of my mind and I wanted a beer so I go into Trader Joe’s and Thom Yorke’s in there, like, ‘Hey, let’s have a beer and a catch up.’

“I woke up from that to the e-mail saying he’d like me to join them on the tour,” Ellison says. “I wish I’d made it up,” he confesses. “I have weird stuff like that happen to me all the time.”

Thom and FlyLo also share the same birthday (October 7) and refers to Thom as his “astral” brother.
