Thom Yorke isn't happy with the way things are going:

“This is such a dark period in our country's history. There are these huge elephants that we have in the room at the moment, in the West, and people are desperately trying to erase them from public consciousness.”

His new not-a-solo album features a track about the ""suicide"" of David Kelly:

“The government and the Ministry of Defence were implicated in his death.

"They were directly responsible for outing him and that put him in a position of unbearable pressure that he couldn't deal with, and they knew they were doing it and what it would do to him.

“I've been feeling really uncomfortable about that song lately, because it was a personal tragedy, and Dr. Kelly has a family who are still grieving. But I also felt that not to write it would perhaps have been worse.”

We wonder if Chris Moyles will play it.

Maybe not.

Still, at least the world has caught up with Thom's gloominess now.
