Hail To The Thieves
A line-up of top musicians forever influenced by the music of alternative/electronica/experimental/art rock band Radiohead, and who have found each other, possibly in a moon-shaped pool, and formed Hail To The Thieves, are about to return to Gisborne.
Made up of Ben Throp, Jeff Boyle, Jason Johnston, Willie Devine and Bysshe Blackburn, the tribute band derived their name from Radiohead's sixth album, Hail to the Thief which mixes rock and electronic music.
Described as one of the more complex, nuanced bands to have appeared in the past 20 years, Radiohead's experimental approach is credited with advancing the sound of alternative rock.
“They're a fascinating band to uncover. The more you uncover their music the more you're blown away,” Throp told The Guide last year.
