Radiohead Get Real With ‘Knives Out’ Video

by Jonathan on June 13, 2001

Radiohead are working on the video for their next single, “Knives Out,” and the clip will feature real human beings for a change.

Following the abstract cartoon “iBlips” from Kid A and the computer-animated video for the U.K. single “Pyramid Song,” the band decided to go live action on this outing. Directed by Michel Gondry who helped Bjork achieve her quirky vision in the videos for “Human Behaviour,” “Hyperballad” and “Bachelorette,” among others the video features an appearance by lead singer Thom Yorke himself.

U2 and RADIOHEAD join forces to raise the plight of AIDS holocaust in Africa.
This week fans are being invited to e-mail politicians and other leaders in the richest countries urging them to direct the IMF and World Bank to cancel the debts they are owed by the poorest countries.
This would free up hundreds of millions of dollars each year to help the fight against AIDS.
As well as lobbying politicians through the internet, supporters are also being invited to the STOP GLOBAL AIDS RALLY on June 23rd in New York.
Musicians, speakers and thousands of campaigners will be calling for urgent action to end the Global AIDS crisis. (Supporters assemble 11am at Washington Square Park (Manhattan) and march to Bryant Park for the rally.)
Campaigners are demanding urgent action ahead of the forthcoming UN summit on AIDS and are demanding a a New Deal on Debt to fight AIDS at the G7 meetings in Rome and Genoa in July.
Please cut, paste and send the e-letter below to the following email addresses of President Bush and other leaders of rich nations – known as the G7.

Dear G7 leaders
The AIDS holocaust in Africa requires urgent action. When 5,500 Africans die each day from AIDS it is strange that these poor countries still spend more repaying debts than on healthcare. This could be changed if you would agree to direct the IMF and World Bank to cancel the debts they are owed by the poorest countries. This would free up hundreds of millions of dollars each year to help the fight against AIDS.
Please consider this at the forthcoming UN summit on AIDS and agree a New Deal on Debt to fight AIDS at the G7 meetings in Rome and Genoa in July.
Future generations will judge ours by whether we saw the connection between the debt and AIDS crises, and acted to end both decisively.
Yours truly,
…………..
