I know we owe you an update on the current tour. Things have been quite crazy here so in the meantime, I would recommend you hanging out at our message board, Mortigi Tempo, for all the latest tour happenings.
For now, we would like to show you these images that Thom posted up at waste-central.com today. Could they be from the new “House of Cards” video that was described as having 3D lasers?
Running it as if it were a double-secret stealth operation, members of the hot rock band Radiohead filmed their new video on a closed sound stage at the media-oriented G-STAR School near West Palm last weekend.
Known for lacing their Brit brand of rock with electronic sounds and playing concerts against a backdrop of cutting-edge lighting, Radiohead shot the video with something other than a camera, maybe for the first time ever.
“They used 3-D lasers,” says the school’s production coordinator, Ashleigh Cromer. Actually, there were 64 of them, feeding data into a computer that reconstructs images.
For the House of Cards video, the boys starred in a party scene (with milk in glasses) that also featured Pirates of the Caribbean beauty Lauren Maher as frontman Thom Yorke’s love interest.
The band’s tour started Tuesday night at the Cruzan.

One of the biggest bands in the world, Radiohead, will make an exclusive appearance on NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” Wednesday April 23 (12:35-1:35am ET).
The band – who made their network television debut on “Late Night” and were O’Brien’s first-ever musical guest in 1993 – has recorded an exclusive live performance from their critically acclaimed and record-industry-paradigm-shifting release “In Rainbows” to air on O’Brien’s contribution to NBC’s “Green Week” of environmentally conscious programming.
Recorded live in London, Radiohead’s performance of “House of Cards,” represents an ongoing effort by the socially conscious band to act in the greenest manner possible. By opting to record this exclusive performance rather than fly over for a one-off appearance, the band – as frontman Thom Yorke notes in the introduction to their performance – avoided leaving a carbon footprint equivalent to driving one’s car for a solid year.
Other guests on “Late Night’s” “Green” show are a bit more literal – “Robot Chicken” creator and actor Seth GREEN and “Today” show travel editor Peter GREENberg.
At Ease has mp3s up of the two new songs performed by Thom Yorke last week at the Trade Justice vigil. There seems to be some confusion on the name of the second song, “Glass Flowers”. We are betting that this song is actually “Last Flowers“, which has been kicking around since the OK Computer sessions. It’s possible that the NME got the name wrong.
