At last month’s Bonnaroo, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke said onstage that “this song is for Jack White. We’re not going to tell you why, but you’ll find out.” Speculation about possible RadioWhite collaborations have been circulating, and Jack White recently confirmed on BBC Radio that Radiohead did indeed record at his Third Man Studios.
“I don’t know how much to tell about it except that I didn’t play with them or produce it, but they came and recorded at Third Man.
I don’t know what else they want to be said about that, so that’s all I probably can say…”
That statement dispels the rumor that they did a collab, but there could be a Third Man release in the near future. Personally, I’d love to see Jack White tear it up with Radiohead. Maybe in somewhere down the road…
What’s goin’ on everyone? As you probably have seen/heard, The Tracks were on a bit of a hiatus after the summer months. No, nothing’s bad with Excelsior. As a matter of fact, things are going great for us in our personal lives! Unfortunately, the show/website took a bit of a backseat while we have been dominating, but we’re back.
We’d like to welcome all of the new listeners who have contacted us over the past year, and thank those who have stuck with the show since the beginning in 2005! (Damn.) Since I’m feeling a bit sentimental about where the show has successfully progressed to since its inception, we’re going to be highlighting some of our favorite past interviews as a Classic Interview Series.
To kick off the Classic Interview Series, we’re going to start with Gregg Gillis aka Girl Talk. As many of you may already know, today (December 7) was named “Gregg Gillis Day” in Gregg’s hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. The honoring city councilman said that “Gregg has become an international sensation selling out performances around the world. I am honored to recognize all of the accomplishments of one of our native sons.” We’ve always been a big fan of Gregg as a musician and a great guy, so check out our podcast feed to listen to our interview with him a few years ago during the Night Ripper era! Also, make sure you get a hold of Gregg’s latest offering, All Day, for free on IllegalArt.net!
Thanks again to the 135,000+ listeners worldwide, and we look forward to bringing you tons of great content in the future!
