The Smile is a new project featuring Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead with drummer Tom Skinner of British Afro-jazz quartet Sons of Kemet. After performing a surprise event for last year’s Glastonbury Live at Worthy Farm livestream, the trio makes its first standalone public outing this weekend with three consecutive live shows performed over a single 24hour period. The concerts will be streamed from Magazine London on January 29 and 30. The event will also include a cinematic film. Showtimes in the Central Time zone will be 2PM Saturday, 7PM Saturday, and 5AM Sunday.Livestream ticket purchasers will be able to view all three broadcasts for 48 hours following the final set. In addition to the option to stream at home, fans can attend a broadcast event at City Winery (listed as a 1PM start) and a 7PM screening at the Regal City North IMAX & 4DX. Information and tickets are available here.

Earlier this month, The Smile released its debut single You Will Never Work in Television Again to digital outlets with a lyric video. The song features clattering and urgent guitar blending familiar Radiohead tones with spacious shoegaze, playing across Skinners frenetic punk rock percussion. Yorkes lyrics prove to be as misanthropic as ever, spitting venom against an abusive television producer who takes of advantage of inexperienced would-be stars and starlets. As heard in a series of live-in-the-studio clips posted to Instagram during December, Blue Eyed Fox is driven by Skinners skittering drumbeat while Greenwood plays a droning, bowed bass. Yorke plays disquieted guitar reminiscent of Radioheads Morning Mr. Magpie. With a keening melody, Free in the Knowledge is built atop meditative piano and Yorkes melancholy acoustic guitar. In December at the Royal Albert Hall, Yorke dedicated the song of solidarity to his fellow UK musicians who had been told to retrain into other trades when work dried up due to pandemic lockdown. (
