thom yorke as philosopher - from the NME... - and You Am I prep new album

Radiohead call music industry 'fucking retards'

Radiohead's Thom Yorke calls the music industry "a bunch of fucking retards" in this week's issue of NME.

The singer has launched a scathing attack on record companies and radio stations as he believes they are only just now looking at the internet for new talent.

Speaking about Arctic Monkey's rise to fame, Yorke said: "A good thing for new music would be more of the mainstream loosening up a bit and letting stuff through. Radio 1 won't play anything fucking decent. You need to sort the radio out."

He added: "The fact that poor Arctic Monkeys are getting so much attention is purely based on the fact that the mainstream music business is such a bunch of fucking retards as far as I'm concerned."


Hahahaha. Thom tells it like it is and maybe there is actually a reason to at least read NME this week (but I wouldn't waste my $$$ on it). Also of note in this week's nme is a bunch of info about their "terrifying" new album. Check out for more details about that!


Speaking of new albums You Am I are streaming their explosive new song online - It Ain't Funny How We Don't Talk Anymore - and preparing for a new album release - alright! They have been one of my faves for over a decade and each new album is something to treasure.

With a fresh deal from EMI Mr Tim Rogers & Co seem ready to rock all night long, and of course Gat Mediah will be bringing it to you like fed ex - always on time!

Love to your mama,
Timmy Dodgers
