A few weeks ago Yahoo! held a chat with R.E.M. Michael Stipe was asked about the R.E.M./Radiohead connection:
sadprofessor1460 asks: Michael, I read that you did some work with Thom Yorke recently. What did you work on and when will we be able to get a hold of hit?
rem_live: Stipe: We haven’t worked officially in the studio as musicians, we just talk a lot as friends.
rem_live: But REM and Radiohead actually talk a lot and kind of challenge each other musically as to what each of us are doing next.

The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet has got the “promo list” for MTV Europe’s top 100 Greatest Music Videos Ever Made. Radiohead came in at #9 for their awesome video for “Street Spirit (fade out).”
“9. Radiohead – “Street Spirit”
Direction: Jonathan Glazer (1996)
Wonderful slowmotion effects in black and white. It’s not often a video fits perfect with its song, but this time it did.”
