Anybody heard Yorke and Greenwood's new project The Smile?
They've just dropped new song The Smoke on streaming platforms not half a hour ago - it's okay on first listen.
Their previous song You Will Never Work in Television Again is brilliant.
I'm kinda craving new Radiohead music at the moment, it's been almost 6 years from A Moon Shaped Pool, so if they released a record soon I'd be all over it! :)

I watched their Worthy Farm performance in the summer and thought that was really good so looking forward to the album whenever that may be.

Yeah, i got a bootleg of that Worthy Farm performance from last year and really loved it. The two singles released so far have sounded great.

Myself & popular forum member Karl 'deleted' Mahoney are seeing them at 11am on Sunday.

I wanted to let popular forum members Mahoney and KRBurg put a review of Sunday's gig in here and/or the gig review thread, but they clearly have more important things to do and i'm now too giddy having watched the stream of the gig.

It looked and sounded pretty special. The songs are all like Radiohead songs in all but name and feel like a bit of a career retrospective.

Different songs could fit on different albums and makes me wonder how many are old songs that have been dusted off and given an update.

But, and here's the best bit- as a set of songs they are as good, if not better than anything Radiohead have done for years. And don't get me wrong, I like pretty much everything Radiohead have done, but these are really really good songs.

Aaaaaand, they've announced a European tour and are coming to Luxembourg. Shenandoah, I think I might get tickets for Amsterdam too.

Thanks Fuzzers for the heads-up.
The band has pressed a run of 45s of their two singles, which will be available exclusively via a lottery.
You can get free tickets at the stores in this list: thesmiletheband.com/smoke7lottery/

I'm clearly not deep in the weeds of intra-band relations in radiohead, but....why is this not a radiohead album?

I have it on good authority one of the members, not featured in The Smile, is suffering from anal cancer.
