Thom Yorke has threatened legal action if the Conservative Party use his music.

Chatting to Dazed and Confused magazine the Radiohead frontman says he doesn’t like to think too much about who might listen to what he creates.

“I can’t say I love the idea of a banker liking our music, or David Cameron. I can’t believe he’d like King of Limbs much. But I also equally think, who cares?”

He has serious concerns that the Prime Minister is thinking about using his material to boost his election campaigns – “I’d sue the living shit out of him if he did,” Thom Yorke admitted.

Atoms for Peace, his recently founded supergroup, recently revealed a new studio version of track ‘Judge Jury’ and ‘Executioner’.

The supergroup which features Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and producer Nigel Godrich – is releasing debut album Amok on February 25.

The song has been around online for a while after its live debut three years ago.
