Radiohead – Who’s Who?

is a list of people who worked with Radiohead on all of their

as those other five. The other five are Radiohead and not mentioned
on this list. If anyone has additional info for this page, please

carlsson, magnus: director ‘Paranoid
Android
‘ video (1997). Magnus Carlsson is the creator of
‘robin’ animation series. when radiohead made contact three
years ago, after they’ve seen Robin at a club in London, Magnus
told them to call him again when they had something concrete.
This they did a year ago and they really wanted him to make
a video. Magnus got free hands and he got to choose song from
the album. They suggested “Paranoid
Android
” but they were willing to change their first single
release if he rather would take another song. His first choice
was “No Surprises”, but after listening to “Paranoid
Android
” a couple of times he choose it instead. – That
song was actually my third choice, but it grew more and more.
Paranoid Android
has the style of a film and is based on three different elements
so it came out to be that song after all.

clark, dwight: director of the videos for ‘anyone can
play guitar’ and ‘pop is dead’.

clinch,
danny
: band photography, on my iron lung ep, the bends era
singles and various official photography. Danny Clinch on the
band: "Radiohead is one of my favorite bands to photograph.
They are just a great bunch of guys. They come across really
well in photographs. I enjoy photographing Thom, he’s a really
interesting looking guy who presents himself well to the camera.
We were photographing the whole band and we were in front of
this strip joint down on Church Street that has these big stars
painted on the wall.”

nigel on his first production (black star): “John Leckie
went off to a wedding or something, and we did a load of B-sides.
It was like the parents had gone away, and everybody had a really
good time. And one of them, ‘Black Star’, ended up on the album.”

When it comes to mixing, Godrich confesses that this is
not his favourite phase of a project. He said: “I feel like
I get too into it. I start fiddling with things and I fuck it
up. At the end of the day it’s okay, but I much prefer the recording.”

Lyttleton,
Humphrey:
Veteran jazz trumpeter Humphrey Lyttleton has
taken part in a seven-hour recording session with Radiohead
for the ‘Amnesiac’ album. The legendary musician, aged 79, was
approached to help out the band in the studio when they became
“a bit stuck” and he has described the session, for experimental
track ‘Living In A Glass House’, as exhausting. Lyttleton said:
“When we finally got a take that sounded good to me, they said:
‘Good, we’ll go and have some food, then we’ll come back and
do some more’. I said: ‘not me’. It was a very heavy day.” Guitarist
Johnny Greenwood had written to the trumpeter saying: “It’s
probably an awful cheek and we’re sure you’re very busy, but
we’re a bit stuck.” After listening to ‘ok
computer
‘, Lyttleton gathered a group of five musicians
to go into the studio with him. “People had said to me they
were all crazy”, he said. “But in face we had a good time. “[They]
went through a few nervous breakdowns during the course of it
all, just through trying to explain to us all what they wanted.”
