Yorke and Atoms For Peace bandmate Nigel Godrich will do the same again tonight (June 29)
Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich played a secret DJ set at Glastonbury festival late last night (June 28).
The two-hour set kicked off at 1am at ‘Heaven’, a small area in Shangri-La which has waitresses dressed as angels, ceramic toilets and a no-shoe rule. Ed O’Brien of Radiohead and Carl Barât were also in the area.
Yorke and Godrich played a genre-bending collection of records, mostly in unison but occasionally one would take the reins. Tracks played included ‘Sexy MF’ by Prince, ‘Fuck Tha Police’ by NWA, ‘Once In A Lifetime’ by Talking Heads, ‘212’ by Azealia Banks and Desmond Dekker’s ‘007’. The eclectic mix also featured jungle, rave, dancehall and soul.
Yorke danced energetically throughout the set, wearing a waistcoat and his hair up in a ponytail. Looking relaxed and happy, he doffed his black hat to the applauding crowd.
After the set, Godrich tweeted: “Same time. Same place tomorrow”. Yorke has been spotted frequently around the Glastonbury site, and reportedly appeared onstage with Seasick Steve yesterday.
