Thom Yorke threatens to sue Cameron
London - Radiohead's Thom Yorke has promised to "sue the living shit" out of David Cameron if he ever uses one of the band's songs during an election campaign.
The outspoken musician has warned the British Prime Minister not to use any of his tracks to promote himself or the Conservative party, but doesn't care if the politician is a fan.
He told Dazed & Confused magazine: "I can't say I love the idea of a banker liking our music, or David Cameron.
"I can't believe he'd like [Radiohead's last album] King of Limbs much. But I also equally think, who cares? As long as he doesn't use it for his election campaigns, I don't care. I'd sue the living shit out of him if he did."
Atoms For Peace
The Creep rocker may have made his feelings clear, but he insists he hates writing about politics in his music.
Thom said: "The 'David Kelly' thing [a 2006 song about the death of the titular weapons expert] was very much an exception.
"I thought it was just so horribly English, so fucked up. [But] politics is not a fun thing to write about."
Thom, 44, is currently working on Atoms For Peace, his new band alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea.
The quartet - completed by producer Nigel Godrich and percussionist Mauro Refosco - will release debut album AMOK next month, but Thom has ruled out a Glastonbury appearance in the summer.
He explained: "We won't have got our shit together by then."
