Nigel Goodrich TV Show!?!

Have you heard about this yet? Nigel's developing a TV show that's going to consist of him and his friends hanging out in his basement playing music. Huh? Completely random, but great news for Radiohead fans, because we all know who one of his best buddies is. And yes, he's appearing in the first episode! Best thing about this is that all of the episodes will apparently be available as podcasts. Via Rolling Stone via atease:

Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich has turned his attention to TV. He's shooting a new series for British television called 'From the Basement,' with Thom Yorke performing live in the first episode.

Rolling Stone writes it will feature performances from an incredible line-up of musicians (and with no studio audience, albeit with some undisclosed visual accompaniment).

The first episode, which has already been shot, features the White Stripes, Thom Yorke, and Four Tet. The second, currently in production, will feature Beck and British artist Jamie Lidell. "I'm interested in the visual arts side of things, and somehow integrating that into what records have become," Godrich tells us, adding that "From the Basement" will be available as a video podcast in the coming weeks. "People don't buy albums so much because, as a medium, it's changing, so I'm just trying to figure out what it's changing into, and chasing after that."
