Following the release of their video for Happy Idiot, TV on The Radio have revealed details of an upcoming live date in the capital. The band has indeed announced that it would play Hackney’s Oslo next Tuesday 28th October.
“I had this idea for the video that I thought would never happen, of Paul Reubens as a race car driver who slowly loses his mind,” says singer Tunde Adebimpe. “ I took it to Funny or Die and they said, ‘That’s great, let’s go for that.’”
“I got to speak with him over the phone about doing it and, in between being blindingly nervous that I was actually talking to an actor who had shaped a LOT of my world view and trying not to freak him out by saying so, he mentioned that he’s been a fan of the band for awhile,” Adebimpe says. “He liked the idea, and, somehow, here we are with Paul as a race car driver losing his mind.”
Seeds will be out on 17th November.
