Radiohead Responds To Istanbul Attack | Music News

Radiohead

 

Radiohead held a worldwide listening event on 17 June in record stores, which turned nasty when the Velvet Indieground shop in Istanbul was attacked.

 

20 attackers seized the store and and displayed their anger over the customers drinking during Ramadan. The customers were listening to Radiohead’s latest album, when the protestors beat up both them and the staff, with one person getting injured.

 

Radiohead have spoken out about the incident, “Our hearts go out to those attacked tonight at Velvet IndieGround in Istanbul. We hope that someday we will be able to look back on such acts of violent intolerance as things of the ancient past. For now, we can only offer our fans in Istanbul our love and support“.

 

Peace.Love.Radiohead

Currently studying Journalism and Media at Coventry University, I one day want to work in broadcast journalism, possibly as a music reviewer. I listen to a wide variety of tunes, ranging from grime bars to rock riffs. If I had to pick a favourite band, it would be The Smiths, as Morrissey manages to capture my exact views on life. The music that I usually play in my car however, is Stormzy, as I know all the words and make sure everyone else driving or walking past knows that too. http://libbybeacham.wix.com/myportfolio

Have your say....
