A group of musicians, including Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and members of Massive Attack and UNKLE appeared at a ‘thank you’ gig this week to support the Occupy London movement. The show was performed in front of an audience of around 100 people.
The musicians took to the stage at the Bank of Ideas, a space created by a consortium of protesters who have taken over an empty UBS building in the city. The future of the Bank of Ideas remains unclear, as the Swiss bank is believed to be attempting to get them forced out.
Musicians have been performing with the Occupy Wall Street group in New York for some time now, but this is the first time that a show has been put on in London. A CD is expected to be launched in the next few weeks, with profits going towards continuing the protest movement.
