by Jonathan on January 9, 1998

the thom/ DJ shadow collaboration on the U.N.K.L.E. project should be released soon. the title is “rabbit in your headlights.”

radiohead has been nominated for awards in the NME brat awards this year for best band, best album, best single (paranoid android), best video (paranoid android), and radio 1 evening session of the year. the winners will be announced on january 27.

from NME:
RADIOHEAD are releasing a fly-on-the wall documentary later this year charting their ‘OK Computer’ world tour. The documentary is being made by ‘No Surprises’ video-maker Grant Gee and will be premiered on UK television before hitting the stores on longform video.

Radiohead bassist Ed O’Brien explained: “We didn’t want a ‘rockumentary’, a warts’n’all type thing that Spinal Tap sends up completely and is brilliant for. Grant’s been shooting us since we started promotion on the album in Barcelona. He’s got some really good stuff.”

Gee continued: “The real challenge is to try and make a rockumentary about a rock band that doesn’t feel like it’s a ‘rockumentary’. Radiohead deserve more than that. I wanted to make a documentary that fits the imagery of ‘OK Computer’.”

Meanwhile, the band have announced that they will not be playing any festival gigs in the UK this year. O’Brien told London alternative radio station XFM during an interview on January 6 that the band still had to play Japan, New Zealand, Australia and the US, but then they would spend the rest of the year recording. A new Radiohead album is promised for 1999.
