How many members of Radiohead have to show up somewhere to form a critical mass equivalent to "Radiohead"? Yesterday marked the band's first appearance on on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but in truth it wasn't really "Radiohead," just Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood and enough looping pedals and other technical doo-dads to make their performance of The King of Limbs' "Give Up the Ghost" sound like it was being generated by a 10-piece outfit. All of the band's appearances in the states over the past week (at New York's Roseland, on The Colbert Report) have definitely helped ease audiences into TKOL's more difficult material -- so remind us again why the didn't the band do this sooner?
Also: Nice of R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe to pop by a week after Radiohead paid tribute to his now-defunct band onstage in NYC.Read More »from Watch 2/5 of Radiohead’s Gorgeous ‘Give Up the Ghost’ on ‘Fallon’
