A Radiohead show in Kansas City, USA was picketed yesterday (March 11) by the Westboro Baptist Church.
The fundamentalist Christian group gathered outside the Sprint Centre in Missouri to protest the show from the Oxford rockers, with the band's long-time cohort Nigel Godrich posting a picture from the demonstration on his Twitter page and claiming it was the "highlight of the tour".
In a statement posted on their website, the controversial religious organization described Thom Yorke and co as "freak monkeys with mediocre tunes", going on to add: "You try to get the people to look at the nonsense and not the Wrath of God that abides upon them. 'Look at the circus monkey over there and the fluffy setting, blah blah…'. "
Meanwhile, God is undoing this nation and effecting all of your lives, with the moth that quietly eats the very fabric of your national garment. Radiohead is just such an event.
Last fall, WBC folks protested a Foo Fighters show. That band turned the tables, making the bigots the butt of the joke.
