Thom Yorke Scores Documentary About Tax Avoidance With Massive Attack's Robert Del Naja and Elbow's Guy Garvey - Pithfork -
The next chapter in the politically active part of Thom Yorke’s career is a score for a documentary on tax avoidance, The Telegraph reports. The UK Gold, a feature-length film set to premiere in London on June 25, chronicles the history of tax avoidance in Britain. Yorke teamed up with Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja and Elbow’s Guy Garvey for the music for the film.
Written and directed by Mark Donne and narrated by Dominic West (who played McNulty on “The Wire”), the film focuses on the “dramatic battle of a vicar from a small parish in the London Borough of Hackney as goes head to head with an ancient and mighty heavyweight, revealing its central status as the tax-haven nerve centre of the world.”
According to The Telegraph, the June 25 screening will be followed by a musical performance by a “secret act.” My bet’s on Lauryn Hill.

Anonymous asked: So what did Thom tweet and then delete?
im afraid i dont want to share what he deleted.
..am i too unkind? alright, i give you a hint. it might be helpful if you’re an iPhone user. (sorry ive no idea about Android OS or others) it’s easy, access his twitter account on “twitter for iOS” and turn on notifications. now you can easily check his tweets when he posts something. and sometimes you might receive the notice before he deletes his tweet.
This summer, we’ll be exclusively selling Stanley Donwood’s latest print, based on the linocut he created for the Penguin paperback jacket of The Old Ways. Stanley has generously donated ten prints for our shortlisted Wayfarer candidates and we will be selling an additional ten prints only through our shop here. This autumn Stanley will make a further ten prints to sell through his own site, making this a very limited run of thirty.
Nigel’s face hahaha!
