Grant Gee

From Capitol Records: Yep, Radiohead, Sparklehorse and The Warhols are putting a whole new spin on the title “actor/musician/director.” The HIQI (that’s hick-ey,folks) Film series, starring all of the above, may be coming to a city near you. Check out the short films created (by Grant Gee, Guy Madden and more) to go hand in hand with Sparklehorse’s latest release “It’s A Wonderful Life.” Catch Radiohead turning the city of Dublin upside down plus watch their colourful vids for “Knives Out” and “Pyramid Song.” And last, but certainly not least, put on your philosophical thinking cap for Warhols’ frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor’s directorial debut, “The End Of The World As We Knew It.”

Here’s an idea that may please some people. The very nice chaps at the record company are letting people listen to KID A before it is released…..in fact on the 4th or 7th of sept, depending on where you live.

here’s how.

You will need to go to your local indie record shop (see list below) to queue for your
ticket early on 2 September (probably earlier than opening time, yikes!!) – there
should be posters up instore about the playbacks.
– Tickets will be handed out on a first come, first served basis – strictly
1 ticket per person.
– The playbacks on either 4th or 7th September (depending on city) will
start at 7pm and finishing around 9pm at each venue.
