Thom Yorke’s brother Andy releasing solo album

    Being the brother of a rock and roll hero must not be easy—just ask Dave Davies—but Andy Yorke, who’s brother’s band you may have heard of, will be trying to fight the sibling rivalry. Andy Yorke, who disbanded his former band The Unbelievable Truth in 2000, has been living in Russia this decade. Andy’s solo debut, Simple, will be released on July 14, and at the very least, it has a chance of competing with his brother’s dissapointing solo debut The Eraser in 2006. In terms of bands from Oxford in the ’90s, however, The Unbelievable Truth’s got considerable ground to make up. I’m sure the York brothers’ mother must be proud.
