Thom Yorke Interview


Thom Yorke interviewed by Charlotte Roche of Viva (A German TV Network a la MTV)

Some or most of you couldn't care less about what Thom Yorke thinks. Whatever. I found it interesting, however that while Radiohead's publicity machine told American media that the CD title "Hail To The Thief" had nothing to do with the election of George W. Bush. In this interview he say the opposite -- that the title is definitely about Dubya.

In a sense then, Yorke is indulging of precisely the sort of doublespeak you'd expect of a politician -- tell one audience one thing, and another the opposite, and trust them to never cross-check.
