Last night, concert-goers at Thom Yorke’s show at the Orpheum in Los Angeles got a special treat. Near the end of his set, Yorke brought out Flea, Nigel Godrich, and Joey Waronker to stage a mini Atoms For Peace reunion. Four of the five original members (Mauro Refosco was not in attendance) played “Atoms For Peace” from Yorke’s 2006 debut solo record The Eraser.
Yorke is currently on tour behind Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes with Godrich and audiovisual artist Tarik Barri. The setlist contained a mix of material from Yorke's solo albums, as well as Atoms for Peace’s 2013 record Amok. Yorke was recently nominated for a Grammy for “Suspirium” off his soundtrack for Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria.
