...And you thought Thom Yorke was gone

... So, in 2006 Thom Yorke released his first solo album known as "The Eraser" and ended on my top 5 albums for the year!

And in a recent blogpost from the man himself he states that he's been working on forming a "band" to perform the material from the aformentioned album along with a few new tracks they've recently came up with...

The band (pictured above) consists of himself, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Beck/R.E.M. drummer Joey Waronker, percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Mauro Refosco, and... Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea."

In my opinion it sounds like a dream come true and to be working with a man of Mr. Yorke's stature is pretty amazing in itself.

Now, they were stingy enought to only have 2 shows in the LA area and you're in the area it's definetly something you should not miss!

Great bit of news if you ask me! We should all cross our fingers in hope that they'll come around and do a full-on tour!
