great clip of radiohead performing one of the only good moments of king of limbs on the best tv show out of austin. spoiler alert: it involves a lot of bass, maracas and thom yorke dancing like a mad man.
radiohead field tests their unreleased material like no other. last night, at the dallas stop of their king of limbs tour, they debuted a previously solo thom-song “skirting on the surface” as well as reaching back and pulling out “the amazing sounds of orgy,” the b-side to “pyramid song.” check out the fan-shot vids above for “skirting” and below for “orgy.”
radiohead had notoriously long performed many of the in rainbows tracks live before they were ever sat down and recorded proper with nigel godrich. in keeping with that artistic choice, thom yorke and co. unveiled two new songs at the miami kick-off date of their north american tour in support of king of limbs.
