EXCITEMENT has been at fever pitch this week because of the news of that chart-topping Brighton rock duo Royal Blood will be playing Plymouth Pavilions 
This summer they played a bunch of festivals, including Leopallooza in North Cornwall, where they won over a new fan by the name of Thom Yorke.
Radiohead’s frontman has a house in the county and was attending the festival partly to see his 13-year-old son Noah play drums.
"This kid is so cool – even before you know who his dad is," says Jordan.
"Thom came up after we played and grabbed us to tell us how good we were and how much he’d enjoyed our set.
"And he hung around chatting for about an hour."

MBA candidates at the prestigious university worked with the Radiohead singer’s management team on the experimental set, titled Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, which was released Sept. 26 via peer-to-peer file-sharing service BitTorrent.”

Jonny’s Setup from Manchester with the LCO

thekingofgear:

image

(boilerroomtv)

Full List

  • Gibson Les Paul Standard
  • Fender Starcaster
  • Tanpura
  • Ondes Martenot
  • D1, D2, and D4 Palme
  • "Brownface" Fender Pro Amp
  • Sennheiser e906
  • Apple Macbook Pro
  • Focusrite 2i4
  • Boss TU3
  • Boss SD1?
  • Akai Headrush E2
  • Boss TU12

image

A photo showing Jonny’s Fender from the show in Manchester, mic’d with a Sennheiser e906 (joshsemans).

Jonny seems to have used a fairly rare circa-1960 “Brownface” Fender amp. Based on the mic position near the center of the amp, the most likely candidate is a 1960 or 1961 Fender Pro Amp, which has only one speaker.

image

An example of a 1960 “Brownface” Fender Pro (ronsvintage).

Jonny’s other gear was fairly standard for these shows. The Ondes Musicales Dierstein was used for Prospectors Arrive, from There Will Be Blood, and Messiaen’s Vocalise-Étude. As at other shows with the LCO, he used the D1 and D2 which came with the Musicales, but also used his Palme Diffuseur, which is only rarely used live. I suspect that he brought the Palme specifically for Prospectors Arrive, since he used it on the original recording and also for the shows in August, 2014. He used his Gibson Les Paul Standard for Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint and for his piece Loop as usual, but also for his new piece Microtonal Shaker (TBC). His Fender Starcaster was used for Self-Portrait with Seven Fingers. He played Tanpura, an Indian drone instrument, on Microtonal Sketches.

image

Jonny’s stage-right setup (boilerroomtv). Note that contrary to the BoilerRoom’s tweet, the Ondes in the picture was not used on any Radiohead albums so far as it was obtained in July 2011. However, the Palme diffuseur was used on every album since Kid A.

Jonny brought an Apple Macbook Pro, and ran audio through his computer via his Focusrite 2i4. The computer was used for Electric Counterpoint as previously, playing back the pre-recorded backing track, and also to run a new Max patch which was used for Microtonal Shaker (TBC). For Electric Counterpoint, a different audio interface may have been used to send audio from his computer to the PA, or it may have been repatched for TBC to output his processed live guitar to his amp.

Jonny brought his Boss TU3 and Akai Headrush E2 as usual, but also seems to have brought a Boss overdrive and a what looks like a Boss tuner, probably a Boss TU12. No middle knob is visible on the overdrive, so it may be a Boss OD1, but knowing Jonny it is more likely his old Boss SD1, and the knob simply isn’t visible from the angle of the photo.

Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood hires Supergrass to cover Inherent Vice track ↘

Greenwood composed the complete score for Inherent Vice, much as he did for Anderson’s two prior films, There Will Be Blood and The Master. He reportedly worked with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and the soundtrack also features music by Can, Sam Cooke, the Tornados and two songs by Neil Young.
