Thom Yorke is reading Pynchon

From that Rolling Stone cover story, comes this feature about Radiohead's current inspirations.
"I just started Gravity's Rainbow. I tried reading it once before, but this time around it's much more fun. It's a really early one, isn't it? This one seems easier to get into than V." — Thom Yorke

Yeah, it's true that in some ways Gravity's Rainbow is easier to get into than V., but Rainbow was published in 1973, a dozen years after his first. Granted, that's now over forty years ago, but Pynchon's only published three novels and one short story collection since then...

More stuff later, I'm being lazy today.
