Burn the Witch – Radiohead Vanishes from the Internet – @midnight with Chris Hardwick
The online music world
is going crazy because alt rock squint gods
Radiohead– one of my and Scott Aukerman’s
favorite bands, I might add. Scott and I have been to
Radiohead concerts together. -Yes, we’ve been to see them
together several times. -Yeah. They might release an album,
Scott! Everything went down,
and there’s… -I know. I almost called you!
-I almost… I didn’t know we were gonna talk
about it here on television. -HARRIS: Yeah.
-Okay, okay, okay. Okay, there’s a lot of clues.
There’s a lot of clues. First up– fans were mailed
postcards that read, “Burn the witch,” and then
Radiohead began deleting their entire social media
presence, uh, doing this. There it goes. (laughter) -(applause and cheering)
-Who knows? Who knows?
Why are they vanishing? Why are they vanishing? Either… Either there’s a new
Radiohead album, or Thom’s just
in one of his moods. -Uh…
-(laughter) Or maybe LP nine
is finally on the way. So, uh, comedians, since all
we can do is theorize right now, what do you think is going on? Rachael. I think they’re really upset that Miley stopped
following them on Twitter. Points. I think so. Yeah. (applause and cheering) Very upset. -(bell dings)
-Scott. I think
Radiohead is being erased like inBack to the Futurebecause Thom Yorke couldn’t
trick his parents into (bleep). -HARDWICK: Yeah, points. Right.
-(laughter) -Right. -HARRIS: Okay.
-(applause and cheering) (British accent): If they don’t
dance, they can’t fall in love. If they don’t fall in love,
they can’t kiss, -and then I’m history.
-(laughter) “Let’s play a Radio song
at the prom.” -Everyone scatters.
-(laughter) Hey, Thom Yorke, you know that new sound
you’ve been looking for? -Well, listen to this!
-(laughter) ♪ Karma police… -They’re really funny…
Keep going. Keep going. “Karma Police” at the Under
the Sea dance, and… Oh! Makes it a much different movie.
Weird Al. They’re forsaking the Internet
and releasing their next album exclusively on handmade
musical dream catchers. HARDWICK:
Yes. Points. Points. -(applause and cheering)
-That could be very true. (with English accent):
We’re releasing our next album on spider web. A spider will come
and spin a web in your home
and pluck the strings. (laughter) Uh, please release another
album, Radiohead, and then, -I… I want to meet you.
