Radiohead call music industry ‘retards’

`Radiohead’s Thom Yorke calls the music industry “a bunch of fucking retards” in this week’s issue of NME.

The singer has launched a scathing attack on record companies and radio stations as he believes they are only just now looking at the internet for new talent.

Speaking about Arctic Monkeys’ rise to fame, Yorke said: “A good thing for new music would be more of the mainstream loosening up a bit and letting stuff through. Radio 1 won’t play anything fucking decent. You need to sort the radio out.”

He added: “The fact that poor Arctic Monkeys are getting so much attention is purely based on the fact that the mainstream music business is such a bunch of fucking retards as far as I’m concerned.”‘
