Bookmarks: Some stuff to read on the internet

The Word talks to Thom Yorke about Radiohead's departure from EMI:

How did Yorke feel about being briefed against as if he and his management were rival CEOs?

"It fucking pissed me off," he snaps. "We could have taken them to court. The idea that we were after so much money as stretching the truth to breaking point. That was his PR company briefing against us and I'll tell you what, it fucking ruined my Christmas. I was so angry, I decided I'd go for a walk, come home, write something on Dead Air Space [Radiohead's blog] and that would be it, it's over, the end. There was a certain satisfaction in knowing that I could redress it on our own website, but it was a clear indication that the relationship was over."
