Noel likes to talk shit, it’s tired, we know. And when his target is Bono (aka the biggest bullseye in rock), it’s just predictable. But in lashing out at the U2 do-gooder’s global relief efforts, he roped in a Radiohead as well. Via NME:
Thom Yorke sat a piano singing, ‘This is fucked up’ for half-an-hour. We all know that Mr Yorke.
Who wants to sing the news? No matter how much you sit there twiddling, going, ‘We’re all doomed,’ at the end of the day people will always want to hear you play ‘Creep’. Get over it.
It’s a sad state of affairs when we’re more offended by Noel boiling Radiohead down to “Creep” than by his slam at the band’s consciousness raising — but dammit we’re livid.
