Video: Thom Yorke Covering Joy Division in Oakland Last Night with Atoms For Peace

Posted By on Fri, Apr 16, 2010 at 7:55 AM

The sound quality on this clip is that of a cassette tape left to melt in your car, but this is still a pretty great video, posted on Pitchfork this morning, from last night's Atoms For Peace show at the Fox in Oakland. Thom Yorke and co. covered the Joy Division classic "Love Will Tear Us Apart," and one fan got close enough to give us a good look at the visuals accompanying that cover.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
