Radiohead frontman to play benefit concert for Greens in Britain

From NME:

Thom Yorke has announced he will play a Green Party benefit gig later this month.

Taking place at Cambridge‘s Corn Exchange on February 25, the Radiohead frontman is performing in support of Tony Juniper, who as well as campaigning to become a member of parliament, also accompanied Yorke as he crashed the UN climate change conference in December.

“Now normally I wouldn’t get involved in politics like this,” Yorke wrote on Radiohead‘s Dead Air Space blog. “But lets face it, it aint labour or the tories is it?!?”

    That’s great he’s pulling for the Greens, but why not the Lib Dems?

    I remember Thom Yorke waving that Let Ralph Debate sign at the SNL credits. Respect.

    My brush with greatness:
    working the floor at the Nader Madison Square Garden rally in 2000, I was assigned to the VIP section where I recognized Jonny Greenwood and another guy from the band. At one point Greenwood turned around and asked me for my Let Ralph Debate sign.

    The next day I watched Radiohead on SNL and at the end of the song Thom Yorke opens up the sign and walks toward the camera.

    Yorke’s politics are right on.
