Watch out people, it’s hypocrisy time! At least that’s what my spider sense tells me. When I first read that Radiohead were going green, I thought it’s great stuff. When I read further what going green means for them… my jaw dropped like Britney Spears’ image.
They’ve decided not to travel to the US for a promotional performance because of concerns over global warming. Sure, that will really work for their blinded fans and screaming chicks but really… for the rest of us… you could have found a better excuse if you didn’t want to go on a tour.
So they voted to record a live version of House Of Cards in London rather than fly over to the US for the one-off performance. Frontman Thom Yorke said the band avoided leaving a carbon footprint equivalent to driving a car for a solid year by recording the track in London.
So Thom, since you’re so good with the math, think about this. If you donated all the money you would have raised for environmental purposes, how much of an impact would that have had? I betcha it’s more than driving a car for a year. Now go hide in your social media site or whatever, you lazy hypocrite.
