Not too bad, reminds me of Cruel as School Children-era Gym Class. I just miss the old stripped back, hip-hop/rock band hybrid GCH - that was something truly special IMO

Oh no - correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding of the SXSW festival is that it's basically a huge music industry showcase? I don't know how it started off though. I will say that it now has a...

It's really expensive + difficult to go to the US as a band. I really don't think it's a lack of effort on their part. I'm sure they, like any band would love to. It's a shame

I know, right?

ps. his "Chris Farren/Smiths Inception t-shirt" is absolutely hilarious. Maybe a bit too much of a in-joke for public consumption though..... :-d

Hahahahahaha.

I really don't know what to make of this. It's kind of cool when music inspires other creative areas. A gourmet tasting-menu doesn't really seem to be very Radiohead though.

Agreed..

I didn't really see this as a 'lyric video' as such. It's got a lot of stuff happening, the lyrics just give it flow. It's a proper production.
