Thom Yorke‘s a busy man these days. With Radiohead‘s surprise A Moon Shaped Pool LP out and about and a supporting tour wrapped up, it’s hard to imagine how Yorke has time for anything. But that didn’t stop him from joining Benji B on BBC Radio 1 last night to talk shop and spin records for over three hours.
The duo spent their time chopping it up over new music, with Benji showing Yorke selections from Frank Ocean’s new album (Endless features a grip of credits for Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood,) and Yorke returning the favor by spinning some of his favorite progressive hip-hop, proclaiming a deep love for Madlib in the process. He caps off the show by playing his new remix of MF DOOM‘s “Gazillion Ear,” which he had previously reworked back in 2009.
