Thom Yorke Launches Online Music Show
The Radiohead man will kick off a new pay-per-view music show taking to the net-waves this Christmas
A new music show that features no host and no audience will launch online on December 18 with Radiohead man Thom Yorke as its special guest.
The show, called From The Basement, is filmed in North London's Maida Vale, and will be broadcast through iTunes.
Without a host to guide them through, the producers are hoping the acts will enjoy the opportunity to take control.
The first show features Yorke, on piano, playing a live set from the new Radiohead album.
Despite Yorke enjoying his performance, he said his highlight was "listening to Kieran [Hebden] and Steve Reid jamming as the tape started rolling."
Hebden, fof Four Tet and drummer Steve Reid feature alongside The White Stripes in the next show.
But don't get too excited as it won't be ready until Feb next year
A spokesperson from the producers said: "I just want to see artist's doing what they do best ... perform. Not being an incidental feature in some magazine show and not being forced into embarrassed conversation."
So this is one for the musical aficionados amongst you, not the kind of people who take deep joy from watching the embarrassed conversation
