The band —whose celebrity ranks include Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, producer Nigel Godrich, Bech drummer Joey Waronker, and percussionist — are now named after a song on Yorke's solo debut, The Eraser (which was named after a US program in the '50s promoting peace via, um, providing nuclear reactors to nations like Iran and Pakistan). Taking such a name was, according to Yorke's blog, "bleedin' obvious."
So, what are these mighty men of music to do with such a name? Tour through the United States, in April, on their way to Coachella, of course!
