Radiohead talk about butting heads over 'King of Limbs' on NPR
Radiohead week last week was capped off by the unfortunate hoax that the band would be playing during Occupy Wall Street protests, but the band kept the promotional train going this week regardless, with a stop-off on "Fallon" on Monday and also talking in-depth about their album "The King of Limbs" with NPR.
Frontman Thom Yorke told "All Things Considered" that recording "KoL" was a bit hectic, like "kids in kindergarten." From butting heads to coming out on the other side of the album, he said that it helped for the band to get over all bad feelings by taking the show on the road. “That’s one of the ways we move on musically, is having to force ourselves to learn this thing.”
Ed O'Brien said the group had to stand its ground and fight over the record's sound. "Part of what you do is rejection. I think everybody finds it hard, but I think part of creativity is bouncing back from that."
“I don’t think we really genuinely thought anything would come out of it,” Yorke said. “Certainly not an entire record.”
