BBC 6 Music 'Tom Robinson', august 24th 2006
[Interview with Thom]
The interview with its two live performances was aired in the evening of august 24th, but since Radiohead were playing a gig in Dublin at that time, it must have been pre-recorded and was probably taped along with the other BBC 6 Music interview with Steve Lamacq on august 21st. The two live performances themselves were recorded shortly before Thom sat down for the interview. This is a transcript from the broadcast.
Thom: "We did this festival called Bonnaroo. We did 2,5 hours. And there’s 80,0000 people, admittedly they’ve been smoking the sticky green all day, probably wouldn’t go anywhere anyway. It was just amazing. We played loads of new stuff. We did whole sections of quiet piano songs and it sounds like the most grotesque self-indulgent nonsense but it probably is my favourite gig for years and years and years. It was a really mellow evening. Actually it’s all being filmed, but we’re sitting on it because there’s loads of new stuff on it. Because we’re mean like that. It will come out eventually."
