Thom Yorke, PJ Harvey Duet Confirmed
your prayers have been answered. PJ Harvey and Thom Yorke have indeed collaborated
on Harvey's upcoming album, out this October. Harvey recently told Spin.com
that she and Thom share vocal duties on the track, "This Mess We're In,"
which Harvey said she wrote with Yorke's sweet voice in mind. Thom also
sings back-up vocals for two other songs, "Beautiful Feeling" and "One
Line," on the as-yet untitled album. Also in the studio with Harvey were
long-time drummer Rob Ellis and the Bad Seeds' Mick Harvey. Last week,
Polly Jean revealed to Spin.com the names of a few other tracks on the
album: "66 Promises," "Big Exit," "Horses," "My Own Private Revolution,"
"Good Fortune," and "Kamikaze." She also said we can expect a tour to follow
the album release in September. In related news, Ms. Harvey recently turned

Bjork Chats About Thom Yorke Collaboration
In an online chat Thursday on ArtistDirect, Bjork spoke a bit about a much-anticipated
collaboration with Radiohead's Thom Yorke for a track on Selmasongs, the
soundtrack to Lars Von Trier's Dancer in the Dark (for which Bjork won
the best actress award at this year's Cannes Film Festival). "I sang a
duet with Thom Yorke of Radiohead. It's on the soundtrack album for the
film [Dancer in the Dark]. It was a gorgeous experience...we spent four
days in Spain, singing a few hours a day. It's been a dream of mine
for a long time to blend my voice with his. That was lovely!" The song
is titled "I've Seen It All," and you will be able to hear it when the
soundtrack is released, tentatively in September.(Spin)

Björk - Les Inrockuptibles n°242 - entretien
JD Beauvallet -
[...] Question : C'est pourtant bien Björk qui
chante en duo avec Thom Yorke, de Radiohead. . Björk
: Ca faisait
des années que je rêvais de travailler avec lui, c'était
une ambition que de mélanger nos voix. La difficulté, à
la fin, était de trouver la frontière entre le film et sa
BO : savoir si la musique tiendrait debout toute seule, sans les images.
Quand nous parlions de la musique avec Lars von Trier, nous étions
d'accord sur un point : la musique devait représenter l'imagination
de Selma, ses rêves et sa poésie. Toutes ces choses qu'elle
ne pouvait pas exprimer par les mots. Quand tout va mal pour elle dans
le film, quand elle se fait rattraper par la réalité, là,
ce sont les mots qui prennent le relais. Ce n'est donc pas un hasard si,
dans ses rêves, elle dialogue, par le chant, avec Thom Yorke. Ce
genre de choses n'arrive jamais dans la vraie vie. Mais dans un rêve
on peut chanter avec Thom Yorke. [...]
Le film est en compétition à Cannes,

Bjork and Yorke record duet
Icelandic singer Bjork and Radiohead singer Tom Yorke
are collaborating on a song for the soundtrack to Lars von Trier's new
film, "Dancer In The Dark," according to the British music publication
New Musical Express. Bjork stars in the film as Selma, a Czech single mother
working in a U.S. factory. While von Trier's Oscar-nominated "Breaking
The Waves" was a bleak cinema verite tragedy, NME reports the new film
has been described as sentimental and borrows from the style of Hollywood
musicals. Bjork has written 90% of the music for the film herself, with
von Trier also contributing to the soundtrack. The film is to premier at
Cannes and is scheduled to open in Britain in September. (Jam)

an upcoming album from Mo'Wax Records honcho
James Lavelle's project, U.N.K.L.E. The track,
entitled "A Rabbit In Your Headlights," features lyrics and vocals fromYorke

Q-Tip(A Tribe Called Quest)is
hoping to collaborate with the Beastie Boys, Radiohead and Eve from the

BBC drama series.

*JONNY BLOWS IT
*The new LP from
entitled 'Terror Twilight' will be out on
June 8th on Domino in the UK and Matador in the USA, featuring a contribution
from Jonny on the harmonica.
RADIOHEAD guitarist Jonny Greenwood has made a guest
appearance on the new Pavement album - playing harmonica. The collaboration
came about because the album, as-yet untitled and due out in June, is being
produced by Nigel Godrich, who produced Radiohead's 1997 album 'OK Computer',
as well as last year's 'Mutations' by Beck.
When Godrich decided he wanted some harmonica on
part of the Pavement album, he asked Greenwood to do it.
Pavement's spokesman said: "I'm sure they're fans
of each other's. Radiohead have pretty good taste!"
The spokesman added that Godrich's dad, a professional
violinist, had also contributed to the Pavement album.
The album, due out on Domino, was recorded in New
York and London and the final finishing touches are now being made to it.
The spokesman continued: "It's sounding really good,
very sophisticated and kind of romantic. It's still very Pavement though."
Titles include 'Bring On The Major', 'You Are
The Light', 'Spit On A Stranger', 'Billy The Saint', 'Jesus In Harlem'
and 'The Hex', a live favourite of Pavement fans. A single will precede
the album, the band's fifth and their follow-up to 1997's 'Brighten The
Corners', in May99.(NME)
* Jonny may be playing keyboards on Bernard
Butler's second solo LP.
THOM YORKE TOPS ANTI-HIT LIST (jam)
1. DRUGSTORE & THOM YORKE El President (279K)
Not quite a new Radiohead track, but the next best thing, this duet finds
Yorke in absolutely stunning voice on a sombre number that wouldn't have
sounded out of place on "OK Computer". High praise indeed. (From "El President
EP", Roadrunner U.K.)
Drugstore/Yorke. The President numero 20 UK Chart
It's taken 18 months but finally the time has come
for the Drugstore's collaboration with Thom Yorke to get a release date.
The four-piece comprising a Brazilian, an American and two Brits teamed
up with the Radiohead frontman in 1996 to record the track El Presidente.
However the project was put on hold when Drugstore's record label, Go Beat
was involved in a takeover. The band languished for a time but a fortnight
ago they completed a deal with Roadrunner records and now the single's
due out on April 20th. And they're out on tour but without Mr Yorke from

tasteful way....no, it's not. if you check the paper it was actually april
fools day. but we were sent that treatment by a video maker, and we thought
it was so preposterous, so ridiculous - the idea of me and thom naked in
mud. we showed it to thom and said 'thom, look!', and he said 'oh, let's
send that to the press as a press release'.

isabel: no! oh please!

RADIOHEAD, DE LA COMPUTADORA AL JAZZ
Uno de los temas incluidos en el álbum Ok
Computer (1997), de Radiohead, obra fundamental para la comprensión
del pop-rock electrónico, aspira a convertirse ahora en un clásico
del jazz más depurado. El responsable de la transformación
de Exit music (for a film) en una deliciosa pieza acústica es el
pianista Brad Mehldau
, que acaba de publicar su versión dentro del álbum Songs:
The art of trio, volume three. Mehldau sostiene que toda la música
"puede romper las líneas divisorias entre los géneros", y
parece haberlo conseguido. "Estrené mi versión de Exit
music en un concierto en Italia. Al final
de la actuación se me acercó un hombre a preguntarme si aquella
pieza era una sonata de Beethoven ", relata, divertido. No es la primera
vez que este joven virtuoso del piano encuentra inspiración en el
pop: el más reciente trabajo del saxofonista Joshua Redman , en
el que Meldhau interviene del primer al último tema, incluye versiones
jazzísticas de Bob Dylan. The times they are a-changing Prince.How
come U don't call me anymore Joni Mitchell , Stevie Wonder y hasta una
lectura del Eleanor Rigby de Lennon/McCartney en un enrevesado compás
de cinco por cuatro.- FERNANDO NEIRA, El Pais..(Gracias Carlos)
First one's from jazz artist Brad Mehldau who has
included a reading of 'Exit Music (for a film)' on his new CD 'The Art
of the Trio, Vol 3' out on Warner Brothers. Apparently just a straight
interpretation of the tune, but interesting nevertheless.

..."An acoustic version of Drugstore's first
album's "Accelerate" gave way to a heated discussion between Monteiro and
Robinson over whether the band should cover a Radiohead song or a Flaming
Lips tune for its encore. The compromise gave way to a drowsy duet on Radiohead's
"Black Star" -- and the Lips' "She Don't Use Jelly."(Sonicnet)

The 'Sweet Johnny' video depicts the band as 'Singing

Massive Attack remezclará OK Computer
The next Radiohead project looming on the horizon
is that Massive Attack will remix the entire OK
"It's like what they did with all those old dub records,"

ATTACK TO TEAM UP WITH RADIOHEAD?
MASSIVE ATTACK's DADDY G says the band's long-planned
collaboration with Radiohead should happen this summer. The bands have
been planning to work together since meeting at a Dublin festival last
year. Initially, Massive Attack were interested in remixing all or some
of Radiohead's 'OK Computer' album. However, time constraints scuppered
the idea. Daddy G says the two bands now plan to hook up in late summer
to "see what happens".
"We're going to go away to one of their houses, maybe
in the summer. Thom's got a house in Devon and we're just going to jam
there. Hopefully something's going to come out of it." Daddy G added that
the remix project would have taken too much time: "In a way Radiohead have
really influenced us. When 'OK Computer' came out they said they'd love
us to re-work it for them. If you do that you have to spend a lot of time
doing it, treat it with a lot of respect, it would have taken us months
to really work on it."...NME
Se ha rumoreado una colaboracion de Jonny con
A spokesperson for EMI Canada says the band is "in
the talking stages" about releasing a remixed version of their current
album, "OK Computer".
"It would be with different DJs mixing the songs,
in the same order as on the original album, and with similar packaging,"
the spokesperson said, emphasizing that such a project is still highly
"If it does come down, it'll be late spring before
it's released." (JAM)
