Beck Weighs Into Fiery Furnaces vs. Radiohead Feud

November 19, 2009
Beck Weighs Into Fiery Furnaces vs. Radiohead FeudBeck has seemingly weighed into The Fiery Furnaces vs. Radiohead feud by recording a song called 'Harry Partch'.

Earlier this month, The Fiery Furnaces' Matthew Freidberger lashed out at Radiohead for recording a song called 'Harry Patch' - a tongue lashing that brought about a huge backlash.

Despite Radiohead's charity song actually being about the last surviving British World War 1 veteran of the trenches, The Fiery Furnaces issued a statement saying that Friedberger aimed the vitriol towards American composer 'Harry Partch'.

The statement continued that Friedberger “would have much preferred to insult Beck but he is too afraid of Scientologists.”

In a posting on his website, Beck yesterday posted a new song 'Harry Partch' and commented: “It's a tribute to the composer and his desire to make the body and music unified into what he termed 'Corporeality.'

“The song employs Partch's 43 tone scale, which expands conventional tonality into a broader variation of frequencies and resonances.”
