Andy Yorke


"The Unbelievable Truth" fue una excelente banda en la que quizás Andy Yorke pago el precio de la inevitable comparación constante con la formación de su hermano Tom. Ahora, con Radiohead ya situados en una liga diferente, Andy regresa con un disco en solitario en el que combina lo electrico con lo acustico.
