Thom Yorke and Flea - live review
The Guardian reviews the first live show where Thom Yorke and Flea (from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers) perform songs from Thom Yorke's solo album - The Eraser
Verdict - "Harrowdown Hill, a gut-wrenching work that queries whether the death of Ministry of Defence weapons expert Dr David Kelly was really suicide, has been described by Yorke as "the angriest song I have ever written". So who knew that what it really needed was a funky Chili Peppers bassline wriggling through it? Yet somehow Flea managed to take this most haunting and most English of songs and make it his own."
