Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters is not letting his spat with Radiohead's Thom Yorke fizzle out gently.
Radiohead have attracted a lot of controversy about their forthcoming gig in Tel Aviv, Israel this week, with many of their peers suggesting that they should adhere to the cultural boycott of the country and refuse to play there.
Indeed, Waters has been one of their most ardent critics, accusing Yorke of not responding to his email or engaging in discussion about why he thinks the band shouldn't play there.
Yorke, in turn, has responded to the criticism by the likes of Waters and Ken Loach by calling it 'extremely upsetting' and saying that he wouldn't dare try to tell someone else where they shouldn't work.
Now, Waters has addressed the situation yet again with comments made in a Facebook Live broadcast with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement over the weekend. “We should observe the picket line," he said. "Anybody who’s tempted to do that, like our friends in Radiohead, if only they would actually educate themselves.”
He added: “I know Thom Yorke’s been whining about how he feels insulted, people are suggesting he doesn’t know what’s going on. Well Thom, you shouldn’t feel insulted because if you did know what’s going on, you would have a conversation with Ken Loach, who’s been begging you to have a conversation, or with me, I begged you, Thom.
“I sent you a number of emails, begging you to have a conversation. As did Brian Eno; you ignored us all, you won’t speak to anyone about anything. So it’s that kind of isolationism that is extremely unhelpful to everybody.”
The gig is due to take place this Wednesday.
