Nigel Godrich Gets His Own Show, Will feature New Radiohead Songs, White Stripes, Kieran Hebden

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
Coming to you from Maida Vale Studios in London is the new show from producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead), titled From The Basement. In the age of Internet broadcast, this show will have no in-studio audience, and will be created for consumption via the web, to encourage repeated viewings. I guess that audience is too big to fit in the studio.

The show will feature live performances of artists performing in the Maida Vale studio. There's a concentrated effort here to focus on the performance... like the fact that there's no host. It's just the performance(s) on each episode. They're also scoring high on the production value scale with the use of high-definition film and ananlogue sound recording.

“I don’t think a music program has recorded a performance on analog reel to reel in thirty years. It was beautifully filmed, and the sound quality makes a performance on a regular TV talk show sound like a wax cylinder recording. No host. Thank God,” said Jack White after making an appearance in front of the From The Basement cameras.

Producer Nigel Godrich said “I’m a sad fan trying to bring the magic back to music TV.”

The show will kick off on December 18th, and will feature a stellar line-up of Thom Yorke previewing new Radiohead songs Videotape and Down Is The New Up on the piano, The White Stripes, and the Kieran Hebden/Steve Reid hybrid that's been touring around over the past year.

Each episode will be available via www.fromthebasement.tv or iTunes.
