‘Angry’ Yorke song on Kelly death

Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke has said a track on his solo album about the suicide of scientist Dr David Kelly is “the most angry song I’ve ever written”.

He said he was uncomfortable discussing Harrowdown Hill out of respect for the “grieving” family of Dr Kelly, whose death led to a government inquiry.

He told the Observer Music Monthly he recorded solo material because being with his group was “getting boring”. …

The song Harrowdown Hill was named after the location in Oxfordshire where Dr Kelly’s body was found in 2003.

He had been identified as the source of a controversial BBC story about a British dossier on whether Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.
