Thom Yorke and Flea form a band

yorke452Thom Yorke has posted on Radiohead’s website that he has started a new band to perform his solo material. The band (pictured over yonder) consists of himself, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Beck/R.E.M. drummer Joey Waronker, percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Mauro Refosco, and Flea on bass.

One of these things is not like the other. “In the past couple of weeks i’ve been getting a band together for fun to play the eraser stuff live and the new songs etc.. to see if it could work!,” Yorke writes.

Two shows have been scheduled: October 4 and 5 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.

One has to wonder if Flea will play these shows with nothing but a sock covering his genitals. Get the full info here. [via]
