Band clarify comments made on their behalf

TAGS:

Radiohead have released a statement today, (April 15) regarding comments made by Brian Message about a new album.

During an interview at the ‘In Conversation’ event at London’s Wanstead Tap last night (April 14), Message said the album is “nothing like you’ve ever heard.” This was confirmed by the Wanstead Tap’s Twitter page, which has since been deleted.

The band have clarified their relationship with Message, stating that he is “not Radiohead’s manager – he is a partner in Courtyard Management but plays no operational role, and therefore quote’s from last night’s event, or any supposition arising from them, should not be attributed to Radiohead’s management or be seen as official quotes on behalf of the group.”

The full statement can be read here:

“At an industry event in London last night Brian Message was asked about new Radiohead music. Quotes attributed to him and taken from his talk have subsequently appeared, describing him as Radiohead’s manager. Brian Message is not Radiohead’s manager – he is a partner in Courtyard Management but plays no operational role, and therefore any quotes from last night’s event, or any supposition arising from them, should not be attributed to Radiohead’s management or be seen as official quotes on behalf of the group. Radiohead are managed by Chris Hufford and Bryce Edge at Courtyard Management.”
