Concert preview: Atoms for Peace 

Wednesday, Apr 14 2010

On his solo debut, The Eraser, Thom Yorke named a song "Atoms for Peace," after a 1953 speech by President Dwight D. Eisenhower promoting the peaceful applications of atomic energy. Yorke has since pulled together a band under the Atoms for Peace moniker — a group that includes Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, producer/multi-instrumentalist Nigel Godrich, Beck drummer Joey Waronker, and percussionist Mauro Refosco. Together they'll break apart Yorke's stark, laptop-synthesized material and transform it into chunky, funky bliss-outs.
