Thom Yorke: Atoms no supergroup

Thom Yorke isn't a fan of the 'supergroup' label

Thom Yorke has insisted his new band Atoms For Peace is definitely not a supergroup, and woe betide anyone who dares to call them that.

The Radiohead frontman has teamed up with Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Brazilian percussionist Mauro Refosco and drummer Joey Waronker for his latest musical project, but Thom made it clear in Rolling Stone magazine that he is not a fan of the term supergroup.

"If anyone ever says it to my face I'm going to f****** knock their teeth out," he was quoted as saying.

And the musician feels equally strongly about the band's debut album Amok being kept off the number one spot in the album charts by American pop singer Bruno Mars.

During the interview alongside producer Nigel Godrich, Thom discussed the record being number two.

Nigel said: "Bruno Mars had a special on Amazon. That's why."

Thom responded: "Yeah, Bruno Mars. Who the f*** is Bruno Mars? Sorry. I'll get slandered now."

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
