Yorke Forms New Band
Radiohead star Thom Yorke has announced plans to hit the road with a new band including Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea.
The rocker has recruited four other musicians to form the as-yet-unnamed group to back him up as he plays live music from his 2006 solo album The Eraser.
He writes on Radiohead's official website, "Hi. In the past couple of weeks I’ve been getting a band together for fun to play the Eraser stuff live and the new songs etc... to see if it could work! Here’s a photo... It's me, Joey Waronker, Mauro Refosco, Flea and Nigel Godrich.
"We don’t really have a name and the set will not be very long cuz (sic) well, we haven’t got that much material yet! But come and check it out if you are in the area. All the best."
Yorke's new band is scheduled to play at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles in October (09).
