Radiohead

“A Moon Shaped Pool” is the break-up album only Radiohead could make

Radiohead has just cut its most wounded album to date. And that's coming from a band that once sang "I'll take a quiet life / A handshake of carbon monoxide / No alarms and no surprises." The thing about "A Moon Shaped Pool," the ninth album from the increasingly proggy five-piece from Oxfordshire, England, is that unlike the sunny strings of "No Surprises," there isn't so much as a polite smile here to distract from the band's crumbling state of mind.

Offline, on message: What Radiohead is (probably) up to

What's going on with Radiohead? This question will never not be relevant. Between excruciatingly long breaks between albums, highly questionable choreography and a general penchant for obtuse symbolism, Thom Yorke's merry band of art rock misfits are never happier than when their fans are quizzically twisting their beards.

Why is Thom Yorke on the cover of an Iranian relationship, sex help book?

"Couldn't look you in the eye ... you're so f****** special. But I'm a creep. I'm a weirdo," sings Radiohead frontman and relationship/sex help book coverboy Thom Yorke on the band's 1993 hit "Creep." Yorke, notable for his oft tortured and emotional lyricism and expert relationship advice, is pictured on the cover of "مشکلات جنسی و زناشویی در مردان", a recently-discovered Iranian self help book (whose title translates to "Marital And Sexual Problems In Men").
