A little more on Thom Yorke and Radiohead

Since the surprise release of an amazing new album and debut of one of the most awesome music videos ever, online content about Radiohead has surged. This goes beyond the creation of spoof videos and dubs.

Yesterday, on GraphJam, I came across this graphic, created by Brain Magazine showing some of the moves Yorke pulled out in the video, complete with illustrations and names for each move. I think I'm going to bust out the "wall pocket" (num. 5).

Thom Yorke Dance Skills

In addition to this dance graphic, a Radiohead super-fan, Jamie Gurnell, mapped out every song on every Radiohead (studio) album based on genre. The axes were anchored by Indie, Ambient, Jazz, Alt-Rock, Psychedelic, Folk and Electronic. Apparently, he created the graph after a day of listening and debating on Radiohead records. It even includes their latest album. I respect this man, I don't think I would have the patience to do it for even the most straight-forward of bands.
