Atoms For Peace played the first of three sold-out shows at The Roundhouse in London last night (July 24).

All five members involved in the project performed live, including Radiohead's Thom Yorke on vocals and guitar, producer Nigel Godrich on keys and synths, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Joey Waronker of Beck and REM on drums and Brazilian percussionist Mauro Refosco.

The band played a 90-minute set including two encores, made up from a mix of material from the group's debut album 'AMOK', Thom Yorke's 2006 solo album 'The Eraser' and solo material released by Yorke since, including the 2009 double A-side 'Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses' and 'The Hollow Earth'. 'Rabbit In Your Headlights', Yorke's 1998 collaboration with UNKLE, also featured, with Flea performing the spoken word interlude to the song. PJ Harvey and BBC 6Music presenter Gilles Peterson were in the audience at the show.

Yorke remained quiet through the show, but he did take a moment at the end to thank the crowd. "Well I don’t know about you guys, but we’ve had a wicked night so thanks very much for coming," he said.

Atoms For Peace play at the Roundhouse again tonight and Friday (July 25 and 26). An exhibition to accompany the shows created by the band’s collaborator, artist Stanley Donwood, is open from July 24-26 upstairs at The Enterprise, opposite the Roundhouse.

'Before Your Very Eyes'
