Radiohead Accused Of Being Driven By Greed
Radiohead were accused of being motivated by greed when they featured on the "Colbert Report" last night. Colbert made the half-joke during a special episode featuring the band. As you can see in the clip below, Colbert asks the band whether they made more money per record with a major record label rather than self-releasing their music as they do today. Frontman Thom Yorke looked to his bandmates for an answer, asking "what's the official answer to this question?" with fellow guitarist Ed O'Brian adding: "We sell less records but make more money." Colbert replied saying "So people are hearing that you're making more money. That means your motivated by greed and that I can respect." His joke followed a discussion with the band over the fact that the episode was sponsored by Dr Pepper - something Yorke noted hadn't been discussed with them before taking part in the special episode. "It tastes like that stuff you'd get at the dentist which you swill around in your mouth," said Thom. Their anti-capitalist stance came across as hypocritical after revealing their motivation to make more money rather than distribute their music to more people. You can watch a clip of the capitalism clash below (via Gigwise).
