Jonny Greenwood OK Computer Radiohead

News for February 10, 1999

not much new today. can’t wait for that r.e.m. tour! anyway, here’s an article from NME:


RADIOHEAD guitarist Jonny Greenwood has made a guest appearance on the new Pavement album – playing harmonica. The collaboration came about because the album, as-yet untitled and due out in June, is being produced by Nigel Godrich, who produced Radiohead’s 1997 album ‘OK Computer’, as well as last year’s ‘Mutations’ by Beck. When Godrich decided he wanted some harmonica on part of the Pavement album, he asked Greenwood to do it. Pavement’s spokesman said: “I’m sure they’re fans of each other’s. Radiohead have pretty good taste!”

for those of you in america who can’t possibly wait for the april release of ‘Meeting People is Easy’, visit where, for an extra $15, they’ll transfer the PAL VHS version available in europe to the american format.
