As previously reported, The Cribs are slated to return to the States in January-see dates below-where their American audiences are ever-growing and manic, demanding as much as the Jarman/Marr axis can dish out.
The sly fox that he is, Radiohead’s Thom York got him self some press credentials for the Climate Talks in Copenhagen and was given access to the event. Thom admits : “I’m here as a press person….You Imagine they’d let me in otherwise?” No Thom, slim chance.
Here are Thom’s unedited blog posts from the talks in Copenhagen:
Hello. I arrived at the copenhagen summit yesterday afternoon. I felt compelled to come to find some hope from these talks. for our kids and theirs. judge that as you will. i camewith a friend of mine Tony Juniper ( He was previously head of Friends of the Earth when i was involved with them to get the climate bill passed in the UK. a Framed copy of which i have on my wall at home. ) So is there any? well yesterday there seemed to be.
the first person i met was the famous john vidal from the guardian who said things were moving again. then we talked to others who said the same. got technical for a bit most of which i can follow but i get lost on the forest stuff and still can’t piece together how you can have a kyoto style agreement and another for america et all running at the same time. but then i sat in on a uk press briefing with Ed Miliband. and he made things clear in some ways.
