Radiohead Are Weirdo Rippers

Last night No Age’s drumming vocalist Dean Spunt emailed us, mentioning that to his surprise he caught Colin Greenwood sporting a No Age t-shirt during the radiohead.tv broadcast of their 93 Feet East gig. In his words, “IN RAINBOWS , NO AGE IN RAINBOWS.” He’s right (see below). And hell, the L.A. duo’s rainbow theme fits rather nicely with Radiohead’s current design theme — smart thinking Dean and Randy. Come to think of it, this could very well be our first BTW to end up on the body of a member of Radiohead. That came out all wrong. Anyhow, as if loving No Age wasn’t sign enough of good taste, during their recent BBC DJ sets, Jonny spun Grizzly Bear and Thom hooked it up with Burial and !!! for the second time. We have that entire set after the jump.
