âI have very mixed feelings about YouTube and streaming in general,â Godrich said. Fork about From the basement join the Coda Collection. âWhen we started talking about From the basement for good, there was this idea that it would be an internet-based thing, but that was in 2003, and it wasn’t technically possible.
âNow the Internet is completely inundated with video content because anyone can do it. So when you get an offer from a bigger entity with a suitable platform, it is very attractive.
Godrich has also confirmed that there are plans to film new episodes of From the basement, with the producer saying, âIt usually starts with friends and then you think of things that would work really well in the format.
âI’m not 100% sure what more to say. When I looked at all the pictures last year, I was reminded of how much fun it was. It really is the most fun you can have in a recording studio.
Godrich revealed last month that The Smile, side project of Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood and Sons Of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner, has completed their debut album.
