Radiohead paid tribute to R.E.M. in New York last night (28.09.11).
The 'Reckoner' group's frontman, Thom Yorke, played the first verse of 'The One I Love' by the US indie group - who announced their split last week - partway through their first set in the US for a number of years.
The show was also only the band's second full live show since releasing eighth album, 'The King of Limbs', in February, the other show being a secret performance at Glastonbury Festival in England in June.

Crusading Radiohead rocker Thom Yorke was speechless when he spotted one of US President George W Bush's daughters at his New York City gig on Thursday (15JUN06) - as the band are famed for their hatred of the American leader. The singer, who dedicated the title of the group's last album Hail To The Thief to Bush, first noticed the first daughter - he doesn't know if it was JENNA or BARBARA - when he saw a fracas in the audience as fans were pushed out of the way by burly bodyguards. And far from being honoured by his VIP admirer, Yorke admits he is glad he didn't discover her presence until she left. He writes on his website, "We did wonder what the shuffling, manhandling, fighting was in the distance of the audience. "Turns out it was her six bodyguards clearing the way for the daughter's exit. And some pour soul objected at being manhandled by the secret service. I think I would have to. "In fact, if I had known all this my objections would have been more forthright and extensive. Which is perhaps why our lot chose not to tell me who was in the building before we went on. Probably a good idea."
Radiohead are keeping record giant EMI sweating over their future, by refusing to sign a new contract until their next album is complete. After the release of their last LP, 2003 release Hail To The Thief, the British band ended their contractual obligation to EMI. Yorke has decided to release a solo album THE ERASER through the XL label - further increasing EMI's anxiety. And Yorke insists a decision won't be made anytime soon: "Will we re-sign to EMI? I don't know. I don't think we'd sign to anybody. Give someone a record when it's done if we feel that they can do it justice. That's it."
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is keen to take a long break from the music industry after being "cheesed off" by the reaction to his last release. The KARMA POLICE singer felt he and his bandmates did all they could to be a "normal" group when they released Hail To The Thief in 2003 - but they were still treated with disdain by executives at their former record label, Capitol. Appearing in Rosanna Arquette's new documentary ALL WE ARE SAYING, Yorke says, "It's just time to get away from it all for us because, what we tried to do, like, when we put out our last record, we really tried to play the game, as it was. "We tried desperately to be normal and fit in and win friends and influence people and all that sort of thing - not at all; they still thought we were weird. "I was really cheesed off that we were being confined to the weird uncle dustbin."
British rockers Radiohead are treating fans to a new DVD to be sold exclusively on their website.

Radiohead are set to shock fans by releasing a new album, just months after telling fans they were taking a break.

British rockers Radiohead have mixed feelings about the band's success in 2003 - because they feel they no longer "fit in" with the music industry.
The THERE THERE hitmakers' new album Hail To The Thief was acclaimed by fans and critics, but they insist they remain outsiders in the wider industry community.
Singer Thom Yorke laments, "Parts of the year were very tough. Psychologically it's been kind of difficult. The way the whole music scene is, it's getting more and more strange and we're finding it less easy to fit in.
