Thom “Knifin’ Around” with Space Ghost

Did ya catch Thom and Bjork on last night’s Space Ghost Coast to Coast? We’re pretty certain that the footage of Thom (without scratchy beard) was actually recorded back in 1998 when he was first rumored to be doing the show.

Space Ghost

It appears that Thom Yorke will appear on the Cartoon Network show Space Ghost Coast to Coast on September 2, 2001 at 11:30pm ET. The episode is titled “Knives Out” and this is what Space Ghost is saying about it:

It is evident that the modern German literary tradition encompasses nature poetry and classic narratives of the metropolis more uneasily than any other in “Knifin’ Around.”

While the celebration of the pastoral is as old as literature itself, the troubled history of writing on Thom Yorke has become a peculiarly German preoccupation. Exploration of the city, meanwhile, especially the burgeoning Prussian and Austrian capitals, helped to define our understanding of the Bjork.

Yet today, the contemporary state of the Grofstadtroman, especially with respect to Berlin in the wake of reunification, and Vienna, which finds itself once more at Sunday, September 2, at 11:30 p.m. (e/p)

Speaking of the Bjork
What a nice girl! In her latest album, Verpertine, she thanks Thom in the CD booklet. {thanks to Greg}

OK Computer Radiohead Thom Yorke tour

News for April 29, 1998

Last Sunday’s 120 Minutes interview with Thom went extremely well. Thom looked tired and almost bored but smiled a lot. He looked relieved that they were now done with touring for a while. He mentioned that he took a vacation a while back to Venice but was followed everywhere which annoyed him. Matt Pinfield brought up the Avengers Soundtrack in which Radiohead were to include a track called Big Boots. Thom stated that they scratched the idea after not feeling comfortable with the recording session. “No we ditched it…because we were so messed up and we went in, tried to do the track, but we just couldn’t do it. It was actually a really difficult period of time. We had a five week break and all the shit was coming to the surface. It was all a bit weird..I mean we went in and tried to do this old track that we had… and it just wasn’t happening at all. It was a real low point after it.”

Hopefully we’ll get to hear that song soon. He also mentioned about the possible collaboration with Massive Attack later this year and the single that he and DJ Shadow did for the upcoming James Lavelle U.N.K.L.E. project due later this summer.

The upcoming film, Velvet Goldmine, in which Michael Stipe produced, will be released sometime this fall. The soundtrack includes 33 tracks, best of which a super-band by the name of The Venus in Furs have contributed. The lineup for this band includes Thom and Jonny from Radiohead, Bernard Butler, Andy Mackay from Roxy Music, and Grant Lee Buffalo’s Paul Kimble. The songs they put together are covers which include: 2HB, Ladytron, Baby’s on Fire, Gimme Danger, Tumbling Down, and Bittersweet.

This is from Spin Magazine Online:

Teenage Fanclub, Radiohead, Sonic Youth Do ’70s N.Y.
Details about the Michael Stipe-produced soundtrack to Todd Haynes’ upcoming glam rock biopic Velvet Goldmine are surfacing. Though the flick isn’t likely to be competing with the aliens and giant Japanese monsters for box office this summer, glam fans can look forward to a slew of classics from the era (from Roxy Music, T. Rex, Brian Eno, and Lou Reed), inspired covers, plus some new songs by the likes of Grant Lee Buffalo and Shudder to Think. Among the highlights: Teenage Fanclub and Elastica’s Donna Matthews (who has a role in the flick) cover The New York Dolls’ “Personality Crisis” and two supergroups doing two Stooges faves: The Venus in Furs (featuring Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead) take on “Gimme Danger” while The Wylde Rattz (featuring Mike Watt and members of Sonic Youth) revive “T.V. Eye.”

Okay. Sources close to Green Plastic Radiohead have said that the upcoming episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast featuring Thom as guest won’t be aired until this August. thanks to kathy hay

The show airs Saturday nights at midnight on the Cartoon Network.
Spin Online also has this to say:

Thom Yorke vs. Space Ghost
Sources at Capitol Records, have confirmed that Radiohead singer Thom Yorke will indeed appear as a guest on the popular Cartoon Network talkshow, Space Ghost, though the air date is still “months away.” Yorke recently shot his segment and now the animation wizards are building an episode around him. We wonder if he’ll use his appearance as a forum for further dissing Microsoft boss Bill Gates (whom Yorke has called “the most paranoid man on the planet”).

Radiohead banned in China!

Any of those performers who do will not be permitted entry to China, including Tibet, and their works will never be welcome in our country.”
