Though if Radiohead are ever looking for a deal, I'd sign them any time," Wood hopes that this new project of his will attract a wide range of acts.

"There's a wealth of amazing bands out there who have nowhere to go. I want to have the chance to release things that might not necessarily get released otherwise," the actor commented. Yet, he tells British magazine Q, "I don't have a great love for bands with actors in them. Me prancing around onstage? That's not going to happen."
