Thom Yorke doesn’t mince words. When mama’s not happy, ain’t no one happy. And in this case, mama doesn’t appreciate rich people and politicians digging his music.
During an interview with Dazed and Confused magazine, the Radiohead frontman issued a warning to UK’s Prime Minster David Cameron (who is, apparently, a fan), stating: “Politics is not a fun thing to write about… I can’t say I love the idea of a banker liking our music, or David Cameron. I can’t believe he’d like The King Of Limbs much. But I also equally think, who cares?”
Of course, if the Prime Minister somehow misinterprets this statement as some kind of perfunctory approval, he’s sadly, sadly mistaken. The final nail in Cameron’s imaginary Radiohead-themed campaign coffin: “As long as he doesn’t use it for his election campaigns, I don’t care. I’d sue the living shit out of him if he did.”
