Donwood said his first impression of Yorke was that he was "mouthy. Pissed off. Someone I could work with. Tchock" or similar abbreviations.

It's a competition to see who 'wins' the painting, which one of us takes possession of it in an artistic way.
A typical Radiohead song begins with a sketch from Yorke, which is harmonically developed by Jonny Greenwood before the other band members develop their parts. Unlike Greenwood, Yorke does not read sheet music,  feeling "you can't express the rhythms properly like that. It's a very ineffective way of doing it, so I've never really bothered picking it up.

Unfamiliar with Young, Yorke purchased his album After the Gold Rush : "I immediately fell in love with his music It was his attitude toward the way he laid songs down.
It's always about laying down whatever is in your head at the time and staying completely true to that, no matter what it is. Aphex opened up another world that didn't involve my fucking electric guitar I hated all the music that was around Radiohead at the time, it was completely fucking meaningless.
I hated the Britpop thing and what was happening in America, but Aphex was totally beautiful. Though Yorke's early lyrics were personal,  from Kid A he experimented with cutting up words and phrases and assembling them at random.

Yorke has been critical of the music industry and has pioneered alternative release platforms with Radiohead and his solo work. Following Radiohead's Pablo Honey tour of America, he became disenchanted with being "right at the sharp end of the sexy, sassy, MTV eye-candy lifestyle" he felt Thom Yorke - Harrowdown Hill (Vinyl) was helping sell.
I think anybody sticking two fingers up at the whole fucking thing is wonderful as far as I'm concerned. After Radiohead's record contract with EMI ended with the release of Hail to the ThiefYorke told Time : "I like the people at our record company, but the time is at hand when you have to ask why anyone needs one.
And, yes, it probably would give us some perverse pleasure to say 'Fuck you' to this decaying business model. And this is what we want? InYorke and Godrich made headlines for their criticism of the music streaming service Spotifyand removed Atoms for Peace and Yorke's solo music from the service.
Meanwhile shareholders will shortly be rolling in it New artists get paid fuck-all with this model. For Yorke's second solo album, Tomorrow's Modern Boxesreleased via BitTorrenthe and Godrich expressed their hope to "hand some control of internet back to people who are creating the work I wanted to show that, in theory, today one could follow the entire chain of record production, from start to finish, on his own.

We cannot be burdened with all of the responsibilities of the record label. Induring the recording of Kid AYorke became "obsessed" with the Worldwatch Institute website, "which was full of scary statistics about icecaps melting, and weather patterns changing". He and Jonny Greenwood headlined the Big Ask Live, a benefit concert to persuade the government to enact a new law on climate change.
At first I told Friends of the Earth that I was absolutely the wrong person to be associated with their campaign. I've based my life on touring, and the rock industry is a high energy-consuming industry. But they persuaded me that that was exactly why it was a good idea for me to be involved; that they didn't want to present a holier-than-thou message.
Initially, I attracted some criticism, but you just have to accept it, drink some cold water and get on with your life. InYorke refused an invitation from Friends of the Earth to meet prime minister Tony Blair to discuss climate change.
Yorke wrote on Radiohead's site that "I have no intention of being used by spider spin doctors to make it look like we make progress when it is just words", and told the NME that Blair had "no environmental credentials as far as I'm concerned". They wanted to know that I was on-side. Also, I was being manoeuvred into a position where if I said the wrong thing post-the meeting, Friends of the Earth would lose their access. Which normally would be called blackmail.

In Aprilmore than 50 prominent figures, including musicians Roger Waters and Thurston Mooresocial rights activist Desmond Tutuand filmmaker Ken Loachsigned a petition urging Radiohead to cancel an Israel performance as part of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctionsa cultural boycott of Israel.
They talk down to us and I just find it mind-boggling that they think they have the right to do that. Yorke claimed that the petitioners had not contacted him; this was rebuked by Waters, who said in an open letter in Rolling Stone that he had attempted several times to contact Yorke. Music, art and academia is about crossing borders not building them, about open minds not closed ones, about shared humanity, dialogue and freedom of expression.

Early on it was all, 'Come inside my head and look at me', but that sort of thing doesn't seem appropriate now. Tortured often seems the only way to do things early on, but that in itself becomes tired.
By the time we were doing Kid A I didn't feel I was writing about myself at all. I was chopping up lines and pulling them out of a hat. They were emotional but they weren't anything to do with me.
