Thom Yorke Talks With "The Guardian" - Discusses...

Posted by - 01:01 PM on 03/03/13
Thom Yorke (Radiohead) recently sat down with The Guardian.
Having thought they were subverting the corporate music industry with In Rainbows, he now fears they were inadvertently playing into the hands of Apple and Google and the rest. "They have to keep commodifying things to keep the share price up, but in doing so they have made all content, including music and newspapers, worthless, in order to make their billions. And this is what we want? I still think it will be undermined in some way. It doesn’t make sense to me. Anyway, All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace. The commodification of human relationships through social networks. Amazing!"

He's right; music has been made ridiculously disposable.

Here's my plan for how Radiohead can once again revolutionize the process of releasing music with their next album:

First off, there will be no online downloads because obviously that method has become dated and stale and there is no money in it. What they will do is print off 500,000 copies of the album and load them onto a fleet of hot air balloons. The balloons will travel the world, landing in towns and countrysides selling the album to whoever shows up to buy it. Boom. Revolutionized.

Actually Jack White already stole your idea.

Been made?

Couldn't an argument be made it's always been disposable? Probably even more so in the past (when there was no method of recording).

I love how some of ya'll are calling him pretentious. Yet, I guarantee, if Jesse Lacey, Soupy, or any other musician that this website froths over said the exact same thing, everyone on here would instantly agree with them.

Might be somewhat pretentious (although I don't think so), but he does have a point.

Not entirely sure what else can be done though.
