Thom Yorke + Flea= WTF

A couple of weeks back, I blogged about my wife running into Thom Yorke at an LA eatery. We both thought Thom would rather be sipping tea incognito and brooding at a nameless cafe down the street from his English manor than be anywhere near the fundamental fakery of LA...turns out he was working on doing some live shows based on his 2006 album The Eraser....with his longtime producer Nigel Godrich and Flea(everyone scratch their head in unison) on bass.

Here is a vid from the show they did at the Echoplex...Smoke Machines! Open Shirts! 80s dance moves! As far as I can tell, Thom is tapping into a new audience full of guys who collect beats for a living..those shiny people who wear sunglasses and glossy blazers at the uberclubs, and mumble in digital code...... I say as long as he keeps us guessing, he's A-OK with me.
