From the official radiohead website via NME, comes this intriguing little nugget…

this’ll make you laugh.

i was told yesterday that one of the daughters of the president came to NY show 2. we were playing The Tourist at the end of the show.. and yes we did wander what the shuffling manhandling fighting was in the distance of the audience. turns out it was her 6 bodyguards clearing the way for the first daughters exit. and some pour soul objected at being manhandled by the secret service. i think i would have to.

infact if i had known all this my objections would have been more forthright and extensive…if you know what i mean. which is perhaps why our lot chose not to tell me who was in the building before we went on. probably a good idea.

hmm
i dont know if we should be

A. honoured
B. amused
C. bemused
D. ask if she had a valid ticket
E. object belatedly on moral grounds
F. ask again if she had a ticket and question whether this really what our gigs are about
G. dont blame the daughter for the father
H. shutup and smile

answers on a postcard

bonaroo today woo hoo

Now, as Radiohead fans will know, the Oxford boys are not the biggest fans of GWB. Thier last album was entitled ‘Hail To The Thief’, a none too subtle attack on the way that GWB won the Presidency in 2000 over Al Gore. Indeed, the track 2 + 2 = 5… well… it says it all really!

BRING DOWN THE GOVERNMENT,
THEY DON”T CARE FOR US…
