Vam­pire in Thom Yorke’s fu­ture?

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The most sav­age war cur­rently be­ing fought on the in­ter­net is that be­tween Harry Pot­ter fa­nat­ics and Twi­light apol­o­gists. “Harry Pot­ter is so lame be­cause it’s about dumb ma­gi­cians! LOL!” “Twi­light like sucks and is for girls! Go Gryffindor!” You know the sort of thing.

Reel News tends to­wards the Twi­light camp, so we were happy to hear that Ra­dio­head – not the sort of band you’d as­so­ciate with ei­ther fran­chise – may be well dis­posed to their mu­sic ap­pear­ing in the next film based on Stephe­nie Meyer’s vam­pire se­ries.

“I am sur­prised at some of the bands that have said they’re in­ter­ested,” Chris Weitz, di­rec­tor of The Twi­light Saga: New Moon, pon­dered. “It’s kind of great. The cri­te­rion will still al­ways be what’s right for the movie at that given mo­ment. But Thom Yorke is in­ter­ested.”

Mr Yorke, lead singer of the band, has not ac­tu­ally com­mented, so the ru­mours may all be so much waf­fle.
