Lex Records has now liberated what appears to be the preliminary fruits of DOOM & Yorke's labors. Diligently produced and melded along with the technical assistance of Radiohead guitarist-producer Jonny Greenwood, "Retarded Fren" was quietly released late last night (11/1-2). Serving as Track #1 from Lex Records' upcoming 10-year retrospective compilation "Complex," it draws sampled segments from Jonny Greenwood's There Will Be Blood film score (2007). Preceding "Complex"'s vinyl-based Jan. release, it's 10 tracks will slowly be revealed every Monday for the next month or so. DOOM & Thom Yorke are currently working on their respective solo ventures: "Swift & Changeable" [Ghostface Killah] and Atoms for Peace.
