Half Of Radiohead Make Live Return

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and guitarist Jonny Greenwood made an appearance Monday night at the KOKO club in London for the Friends Of The Earth charity’s climate campaign, The Big Ask. The show was hosted by Popworld presenter Simon Amstell.

Yorke and Greenwood performed semi-acoustic versions of many hits and also debuted three new songs off of their forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2003’s “Hail To The Thief.”

The three new songs performed included “Arpeggi,” a ballad with Yorke fingerpicking an acoustic guitar and Greenwood playing a quietly distorted electric, “Bodysnatchers,” a much more uptempo rock song, and a third, as-yet-untitled song that included a looped vocal beat and piano, which NME.com described as “the best of the bunch.”

Two other members of Radiohead, bassist Colin Greenwood and guitarist Ed O’Brien, watched the show from the balcony.

Yorke and Greenwood played a string of other hits, including “Karma Police,” “Fake Plastic Trees,” “No Surprises,” and closed with one of their biggest songs ever, “Paranoid Android.”

Other artists, including Super Furry Animals singer Gruff Rhys and UK folk singer Kate Rusby, also performed at the event. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
