Radiohead has had a semblance of activity without actually being active. Frontman Thom Yorke along with fellow Radiohead bandmate Jonny Greenwood has launched a new side project entitled The Smile. Their debut album was put out earlier this year to critical acclaim. However, it appears that more effort will be put forth on side projects than Radiohead itself as one reporter is indicating that Radiohead has allegedly broken up. Back in 2021, this nu-metal legend would give his thoughts on this iconic Radiohead album.
According to Drew Magary over at SFGate, Radiohead has not officially broken up via a written statement or message via the group but sees all the signs that the band has effectively dissolved. This includes the fact that Radiohead in a 2020 interview told NME that the band was going to take a ‘year off. Fast forward to 2022 and there has been no movement from the group. Of course, all of this should be taken with a grain of salt and nothing can be deemed as official until the band themselves says otherwise. Anything up to now is pure speculation.
In other news concerning Radiohead, during an interview with Rolling Stone, the legendary Roger Waters gave his honest review of Radiohead’s material. More specifically the iconic album ‘Amnesiac’. Credit to Far Out Magazine for the below.
“My son Harry gave me OK Computer. I really liked it. I thought it had two or three really great songs on it. Then a friend gave me a newish album with a red thing, I can’t even remember what it was called.”
Waters continued: “Amnesiac. That was beyond me, I have to say. I listened to it once in the car and went, ‘Well,
OK, guys. Good, but you’ve left me.’ You know, where’s my Neil Young? Where’s my John Lennon album?”
The legendary Pink Floyd star would conclude: “It’s very difficult to write ‘Breathe, breathe in the air, don’t be afraid to care,’ without people going, ‘F***ing wanker!’ [laughs]. And I think that’s what Radiohead and these other bands are attaching to. There is purity in those records. The records are bought by people when they hit puberty when it becomes important to us to attach to ideas.”
