The Yorke family finally settled in Oxfordshire; Yorke's father was a chemical equipment salesman, and had to travel around the country frequently.[3] Yorke received his first guitar when he was seven, inspired by a televised performance of Queen guitarist Brian May.[3] His first song, "Mushroom Cloud" described a nuclear explosion, and by age ten he had joined his first band. He attended the all boys Public school, Abingdon, where he met future bandmates Ed O'Brien, Phil Selway, Colin Greenwood and Colin's younger brother, Jonny.

The band was named On A Friday, as Friday was the only day on which the members were allowed to rehearse.[3] Yorke, in this early line up, played guitar and provided vocals, and was already developing his songwriting and lyrical skills. Yorke, speaking about music's influence on him as a schoolboy, said, "School was bearable for me because the music department was separate from the rest of the school. It had pianos in tiny booths, and I used to spend a lot of time hanging around there after school."[4] The band's mentor at the school was the music teacher, Terence Gilmore-James, who, according to band members, was the only one who encouraged them.[4] Said Colin Greenwood, "When we started, it was very important that we got support from him, because we weren't getting any from the headmaster. You know, the man once sent us a bill, charging us for the use of school property, because we practiced in one of the music rooms on a Sunday."[4] Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood Radiohead is a British rock band from Oxford. ...


While attending the University of Exeter, where he studied Fine Art and English, he worked as a DJ at Guild nights in the Lemon Grove and played briefly with the bands Headless Chickens and Flickernoise, the latter of which was a techno group. He also held a part time position as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital. In his second year, he was introduced to the university's newly acquired Macintoshes, with which he was fascinated. It was also around this time that he met Stanley Donwood, an artist who from 1994 on would become an important collaborator on single and album artwork for Radiohead. Yorke has often used an alias ('The White Chocolate Farm', 'Tchock') while working on projects with Donwood. Together, the duo later won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Recording Package.

In 1987, Yorke and his girlfriend were involved in a car crash. He was unharmed, but his girlfriend suffered from whiplash. This brought on Yorke's phobia of cars, which he later wrote about in Radiohead songs such as "Airbag", "Killer Cars", "Stupid Car" and "Drunkk Machine". On A Friday reformed in 1991 as the members were finishing their degree courses. Meanwhile, Yorke briefly had a job selling men's suits. Now relocated to Oxford, they signed to Parlophone and changed their name to Radiohead, the name taken from a song on the Talking Heads album True Stories.

Radiohead

Main article: Radiohead

Radiohead first gained notice with the worldwide hit single "Creep", which was allegedly written in the men's toilets of Exeter University's student club.[5] The song appeared on the band's 1993 debut album Pablo Honey, which received mixed reviews. Yorke, coming to resent the way "Creep" had overshadowed their career, described the band's feeling toward it in the lyrics of "My Iron Lung", which appeared on their second album, The Bends, in 1995. By this time the band, through frequent touring and greater attention to detail in the recording studio, had picked up a large cult fan base and had begun to receive wider critical acclaim.

The band's third effort, 1997's OK Computer, was heralded as a landmark album by nearly every publication that reviewed it, establishing Radiohead as one of the leading rock acts of the 1990s. However, new insecurities came along with the acclaim and stardom Yorke had found, contributing to the frontman's lapse into clinical depression during the mammoth Radiohead tour that followed the album. Some of these concerns were voiced in the documentary film Meeting People Is Easy, which focused on the period. Yorke has explained in various interviews that he dislikes the "mythology" within the rock genre, and hates the media's obsession with celebrities.[6] In the late 1990s, Yorke struggled with the idea of a follow-up to OK Computer.

Yorke and the band adopted a more radical approach on 2000's Kid A and 2001's Amnesiac, processing vocals, obscuring lyrics, and departing from rock for a more varied musical landscape including electronic, jazz and avant-garde classical influences. Expanding Radiohead's sales while earning acclaim for experimentation, the albums also divided fans and critics. To Yorke's dismay, many preferred that the band retain their earlier style, which had begun to exert great influence on the British pop music scene, with acts such as Coldplay, Travis and Muse replacing an earlier generation of Britpop bands. In 2003, Radiohead released their sixth album, Hail to the Thief, a blend of rock and electronica that Yorke described as a reaction to the events of the early 2000s and newfound fears for his children's future, though he denied a specific political intent.

Yorke released The Eraser, an album of solo material, on 10 July 2006 in the UK and July 11, 2006 in the U.S. [7] Produced by Nigel Godrich and featuring cover art by Stanley Donwood, it was released on the independent label XL Recordings. Yorke described the album as "more beats and electronics" and denied that it meant he was leaving Radiohead, saying, "I want no crap about me being a traitor or whatever splitting up blah blah... this was all done with their blessing."[8] The Eraser reached number 3 in the UK in its first week, number 2 in the United States, Canada and Australia, as well as number 9 on the Irish charts. The album was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize, losing to the Arctic Monkeys, and was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album.

Musical approach

Thom Yorke in 2006

As a singer, Yorke is known for his distinctive falsetto ("Fake Plastic Trees", "Reckoner", "Like Spinning Plates") and his ability to reach, and sustain, high notes ("You", "Creep", "Street Spirit (Fade Out)", "Exit Music (For a Film)", "Nude", and "Down is the New Up"). During the recording sessions for The Bends in 1994, the band watched Jeff Buckley in concert; Yorke later said the concert had a direct effect on his vocal delivery on "Fake Plastic Trees".[9] However, Yorke has said, "it annoys me how pretty my voice is... how polite it can sound when perhaps what I'm singing is deeply acidic." He has often adopted other styles of singing, such as an aggressive shouting style in the middle section of "Paranoid Android" and a semi-spoken, rap-like delivery for 2003's "Myxomatosis" and "A Wolf at the Door". Falsetto (Italian diminutive of falso, false) is a singing technique that produces sounds that are pitched higher than the singers normal range, in the treble range. ...

Aside from vocal duties and writing lyrics, Yorke's musical contributions to Radiohead include guitar, both acoustic and electric (usually rhythm parts, with band member Jonny Greenwood handling lead), and piano (including Rhodes piano, especially on Kid A). He also plays bass guitar on occasion (the bass line for "The National Anthem" was recorded by him) as well as drums; in 2006 he performed percussion on stage in tandem with drummer Phil Selway on the track 'Bangers & Mash'.

Yorke, like most members of Radiohead, has never learned how to read music. He said, "If someone lays the notes on a page in front of me, it's meaningless... because to me 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." In interviews Yorke has sometimes played down his skills on both guitar and piano; he rarely plays guitar solos, and joked about the simplicity of his part in "Bishop's Robes". Yorke explained how he had bought a "proper" baby grand piano after OK Computer and began writing songs on it, despite a lack of proficiency, constantly relying on pedal points and pivot tones. Yorke said, "I'm such a shit piano player. I remember this Tom Waits quote from years ago, that what keeps him going as a songwriter is his complete ignorance of the instruments he's using. So everything's a novelty. That's one of the reasons I wanted to get into computers and synths, because I didn't understand how the fuck they worked."

Since Kid A, Radiohead, and in particular Yorke, have incorporated many elements of electronic music into their work. As a result, Yorke has taken an increased role in programming beats and samples and has been credited with playing "laptop" on recent albums. On a radio show in 2003 to publicise the release of Hail to the Thief, Yorke remarked that he would rather make a record just with a computer than with only an acoustic guitar.[10] His solo effort The Eraser featured piano and guitar, but was built primarily around electronics.

In interviews Yorke has cited a variety of personal musical heroes and influences, ranging from jazz composer and bassist Charles Mingus to Neil Young, singer Scott Walker, electronic act Aphex Twin, Autechre and Krautrock band Can. Joy Division, Magazine, Elvis Costello, The Smiths and Sonic Youth were early influences on Radiohead and Yorke. In 2004, at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Yorke mentioned to the crowd, "When I was in college, the Pixies and R.E.M. changed my life",[11] and he has often mentioned both bands as examples.

Activism

Thom Yorke, drenched in chocolate for an Oxfam Make Trade Fair campaign, 2004

Yorke has been outspoken on various contemporary political and social issues. Radiohead had read No Logo by Naomi Klein during the Kid A sessions ("No Logo" was also briefly considered as the album title) and all the members were reportedly heavily influenced by it, though Yorke said it "didn't teach him anything he didn't already know".[12] Yorke's activism in support of fair trade practices, with an anti-WTO and anti-globalisation stance, garnered significant attention in the early 2000s.[13] Yorke had previously referenced maquiladoras in the title of a Radiohead B-side in 1995, and decried the IMF in 1997's "Electioneering".

Yorke is friends with the environmentalist writer, academic and journalist George Monbiot; he lent a quote to feature on Monbiot's book Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain. He is also notable as a political activist on behalf of other causes, including human rights and anti-war movements such as Jubilee 2000, Amnesty International and CND, and Friends of the Earth's Big Ask campaign. [16] Radiohead played at the Free Tibet concert in both 1998 and 1999, and at an Amnesty International concert in 1998. In 2005 Yorke performed at an all-night vigil for the Trade Justice Movement.[17] In 2006, Radiohead and Yorke performed a special benefit concert for Friends of the Earth, which was attended by representatives of British political parties including Tory leader David Cameron,[18] whom Yorke does not support[citation needed]. Yorke made headlines the same year for refusing Prime Minister Tony Blair's request to meet with him to discuss climate change, declaring Blair had "no environmental credentials".[19] Yorke has subsequently been critical of his own energy use. He has said the music industry's use of air transport is dangerous and unsustainable, and that he would consider not touring if new carbon emissions standards do not force the situation to improve.[20] The historic Blue Marble photograph, which helped bring environmentalism to the public eye. ...

UNKLE
Yorke and DJ Shadow got together during the OK Computer tour in San Francisco and recorded "Rabbit in Your Headlights" for the James Lavelle project going under the name UNKLE. The song is the closing track on UNKLE's first album Psyence Fiction (1998), which also features contributions by many other artists. He also is featured at the end of the track "Lonely Soul" on the same album.
The Venus in Furs
Yorke and Radiohead bandmate Jonny Greenwood got together with Bernard Butler, David Gray, Andy Mackay, and Paul Kimble to form the band, The Venus in Furs (named after the Velvet Underground song). They recorded five songs for the Todd Haynes film Velvet Goldmine (1998), which was produced by Yorke's friend Michael Stipe. Three of the tracks sung by Yorke are Roxy Music covers, originally sung by Bryan Ferry, whilst "Baby's on Fire" is a Brian Eno cover and "Tumbling Down" is a Cockney Rebel cover. The tracks are:
  • "2HB"
  • "Ladytron"
  • "Baby's on Fire" (Vocal: Jonathan Rhys Meyers)
  • "Bitter-Sweet"
  • "Tumbling Down" (Vocal: Jonathan Rhys Meyers)
Björk
Yorke and Björk sang a duet called "I've Seen It All" on Selmasongs (2000), the soundtrack album to Lars Von Trier's award winning film Dancer in the Dark. In the movie, a different recording is heard, with the song sung by actor Peter Stormare. The song was nominated for an Academy Award, and the two were to have performed it together at the 2001 Oscars, but it was cut to a Björk solo performance due to time requirements.
PJ Harvey
Yorke had a strong presence on PJ Harvey's 2000 release, Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea. He did a duet with Harvey on the song "This Mess We're In" and sang back-up on two other songs: "One Line" and "Beautiful Feeling". Harvey's album won the Mercury Music Prize in 2001 (over Radiohead's Amnesiac, among other nominees).
Band Aid 20
In December 2004, Yorke and Greenwood contributed to the Band Aid 20 "Do They Know It's Christmas?" charity single. While he does not sing, Yorke can be seen playing piano in the music video.
Modeselektor
Thom Yorke contributed vocals to the song "The White Flash" a song by Modeselektor in 2007.
Live collaborations
In 1998, Yorke performed with R.E.M. at the Tibetan Freedom Concert in Washington, D.C., singing "Be Mine" with the group and singing Patti Smith's part of "E-Bow the Letter", a duet with lead singer Michael Stipe (Stipe also joined Radiohead for a song, singing Yorke's part on "Lucky"). In spring 2002, Yorke and Beck made a surprise appearance at an Los Angeles benefit concert for fairer record label contracts, duetting on an acoustic cover of the Velvet Underground song "I'm Set Free".
