Atoms for Peace’s Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich played a special DJ set at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge nightclub a few weeks ago, and now the band has released footage from the show. The Radiohead frontman and longtime producer took a page from Beck and billed the show as just “two turntables and a microphone,” though the gig itself featured an impressive visual and light setup, making it an exciting affair. Here, Yorke and Godrich spin through Atoms’ twitchy track “Default,” and Yorke gets rather into it.
“Originally, we were just going to DJ and not play any of our shit. . . Then we got carried away,” Yorke told Rolling Stone prior to the March 14th show. “We’ve basically just cut everything up into its constituent parts. We’ll try to re-cut the tunes live, mixing in loads of other bits and pieces and collaging stuff together.”
