Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has slammed the British music industry, calling them "a bunch of f**king retards". The CREEP hitmaker claims radio and record companies in the UK are stupid for not grasping the idea that the internet is now a major catalyst for boosting sales and artists' popularity. Using rock newcomers Arctic Monkeys, who built up their fan base on the web, as an example, Yorke says, "To me the whole Arctic Monkeys phenomenon was kind of funny because it was really just mainstream waking up to the fact that the internet exists."
