Radiohead TV, an idea almost too good to be true, has finally surfaced on DVD. The band has posted details of a brand new DVD, up for pre-sale on their official website. Titled The Most Gigantic Lying Mouth Of All Time, it is filled with over 110 minutes of Radiohead goodness. The main bulk of the disc features 24 short films, which were broadcast in the UK as part of Radiohead TV earlier this year.
Thom York had this to say on Radiohead’s website: “This was originally meant to be four episodes shown on our very own television channel. It was just before Hail To The Thief was released. Everyone was working themselves into a froth. They told us they could get us our own station. Somewhere here, somewhere there, you know. It was very exciting.”
"We were going to take over the airwaves. So we set about putting together some television. We got lots of tapes from a request we put on our website. Lots. Lots and lots. We also generated some television of our own to avoid going stir crazy in the studio."
BBC wouldn’t air the material, so this curious mind (and devoted fan) is anxious to see the DVD. To get a little taste, check out the trailer by clicking here.
