News that would have excited the hell out of my younger self has come out of the Radiohead camp today. The band is set to perform their latest album in its entirety live at the BBC’s studios on July 1.
The show will come as a part of the From The Basement series, which was created by Nigel Godrich (the producer on every Radiohead record since The Bends). As the official release states, “the band are excited at the prospect of having their first live performance of ‘The King of Limbs’ broadcast around the world . The band will be filmed and recorded by the From The Basement team, which includes Nigel Godrich, their long time producer; Dilly Gent, who commissioned many of the memorable Radiohead videos; and Grant Gee, who filmed the Radiohead documentary ‘Meeting People is Easy’” [twentyfourbit via Antiquiet]
Congratulations to Radiohead for having the balls to perform what essentially will amount to the first ever recorded “worst hits” concert. They just keep on blazing those industry trails!
