Radiohead's Thom Yorke has formed a new band.

The frontman has recruited Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, REM collaborator Joey Waronker, Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Mauro Refosco, and long-term producer Nigel Godrich to perform his solo material live.

Yorke's new outfit have announced they will play two Los Angeles shows at the Orpheum Theatre on October 4 and 5.

"In the past couple of weeks Iíve been getting a band together for fun to play 'The Eraser' stuff live and the new songs etc, to see if it could work!" the singer wrote on Radiohead's Dead Air Space blog.

He added: "We donít really have a name and the set will not be very long cuz... wellÖ we havenít got that much material yet! But come and check it out if you are in the area."

The Radiohead frontman has yet to reveal whether his new band will be playing further dates.

As previously reported, Yorke had been considering names for his solo career from comedian Adam Buxton, with Thombola, Thomosexual, The Duke Of Yorke and T.Homme all considered.
