Bio: Few rock singers of the '90s were as original and instantly unforgettable as Thom Yorke, as his band, Radiohead, became one of the biggest bands of the 21st century after making a career out of specializing in challenging and unpredictable rock.
Born October 7, 1968, in Wellingborough, England, Yorke was born with a vision ailment: his left eye was paralyzed and shut and until the age of six.
Yorke has also appeared as part of the ad hoc alternative supergroup Venus in Furs for the soundtrack to the 1998 glam rock film Velvet Goldmine, lending his vocals to the tracks "2HB," "Ladytron," and "Bitter-Sweet." In May 2006, he unleashed a surprise by announcing an imminent solo album on Radiohead's weblog.

Yorke himself, being chief songwriter, lyricist and vocalist, is attributed many of the same personal qualities as exist in Radiohead's music from this period to the present day — themes of isolation, hope, resignation, and urban-existentialism to name several.
Yorke released The Eraser, an album of solo material, on July 10, 2006 in the UK and July 11, 2006 in the U.S. Produced and arranged by Nigel Godrich, featuring cover art by Stanley Donwood, it was released on the independent label XL Recordings.

Yorke was reluctantly convinced by the producer to leave his voice unprocessed, and the result is sublime angst ridden vocals that soar above this dense electronic soundscape.
This is what Thom hears while he walks down the road, hangs out at home, alone or in a crowd, sitting on the bog, basking in the afterglow, agonising when it occasionally goes wrong.
Yorke's voice is actually a musical instrument, in the truest sense, as his crooning perfectly complements the alienation & urgency expressed throughout the scope of this album.

 Tiny Mix Tapes Music Reviews: Thom Yorke Music Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Thom programmed all the beats on his laptop, and Nigel Godrich produced and arranged the album, providing a sort of controlled sonorical environment.
Although I prefer Thom's voice drenched in reverb a la OK Computer, it's at least interesting to hear his voice so dry and pushed to the forefront.
Admittedly, the vocal melodies can actually be pretty grating at times with their insistent presence, but the lyric sheet is where Thom can finally be more direct and personal without having to worry about falsely representing the other members of Radiohead.

Eraserhead: Thom Yorke would be a good subject for a 2006 Nagel print.
Those hoping for the acoustic guitar- and piano-playing Yorke heard at the Bridge School Benefit a few years back will be let down, because musically his new record may as well be named Kid B.
While still filled with images of corruption, modern decay and technologically induced detachment, Yorke's famously pessimistic lyrics lighten up just a bit here, especially on the subdued "Atoms for Peace." "I want you to get out and make it work," he sings gleefully amid a bouncy, synthesized bass melody as catchy as a children's song.

Sometimes it's hard to tell when Radiohead's opinionated frontman Thom Yorke is being serious and when he's — as the English say — taking the piss.
For Yorke, who has been known to change topics mid-conversation or even walk out of interviews when things aren't going well, being weird, contrary or aloof is a way to avoid having to be too analytical about his personal life and work.

 Denver - Music - Thom Yorke
Thom Yorke's first individual outing is about what you'd expect -- a glitchy, primarily electronic excursion that mirrors Radiohead's most recent work.
The Eraser's dour compositions conjure the icy, detached vibe of Kid A and Amnesiac, and were it not for Yorke's beguiling melodies and consistently compelling fey falsetto, it would be easy to peg Eraser as a regurgitation of the band's back catalogue.
Amid a backdrop of assorted arcade noises and claustrophobic frequencies, Yorke delivers dependably pithy, neurotic musings on such standout tracks as "Skip Divided," in which he croons in a noticeably deeper timbre, and "Black Swan" and "Harrowdown Hill," whose slinky bass lines and jazzy backbeats provide a welcome contrast to the album's overall mechanical tone.
