Radiohead fansite ateaseweb.com quotes Thom Yorke from a recent Q&A on BBC 6 Music.
“We did this festival called Bonnaroo. We did 2.5 hours. And there’s 80,000 people, admittedly they’ve been smoking the sticky green all day– probably wouldn’t go anywhere anyway. It was just amazing. We played loads of new stuff. We did whole sections of quiet piano songs and it sounds like the most grotesque, self-indulgent nonsense, but it probably is my favourite gig for years and years and years. It was a really mellow evening. Actually it’s all being filmed, but we’re sitting on it because there’s loads of new stuff on it. Because we’re mean like that. It will come out eventually.”
But get this: a month after the festival, someone mailed me my wallet! With everything in it (except the cash). There are good people in this world! And they like musical festivals in Tennessee.
