Capitol Makes Radiohead Film Debut DVD

     NEW YORK--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--March 8, 1999--

           U.S. Premiere at SXSW and In-Theater Screenings

                       Prep May 4th Home Release

     Already known as trail blazers for their influential albums and
music videos, Radiohead will break new ground on May 4th when their
behind-the-scenes film "Meeting People Is Easy" becomes Capitol
Records' first simultaneous DVD and home video release and
consequently, the first DVD title distributed by EMI Music
Distribution (EMD). Filmmaker Grant Gee, who also directed Radiohead's
"No Surprises" video, shadowed the band for almost an entire year,
chronicling the whirlwind of activity around the release of the band's
Grammy-winning album OK Computer. Gee captures the parade of
promotional appearances, interviews, live performances, travel and
occasional downtime that is life on the road. In addition to
previously unseen live footage, the film also previews the beginnings
of songs in progress.

     EMD President & CEO, Richard Cottrell, commented on the release,
"We are very excited by the opportunity that DVD offers and
particularly thrilled that our first DVD is with Radiohead, one of the
best and most innovative bands recording today. They have built a
reputation for integrating talent and technology in their music, which
is a wonderful combination for our initial DVD. We look forward to
many future releases in the format."

     Capitol Records Executive Vice President Liz Heller revealed that
the label has other DVDs in production: "We have a number of titles in
development and plan to release them by Fall. We are excited that we
were able to involve Radiohead and tie the release of our first DVD
into the campaign for the theatrical and home release of "Meeting
People Is Easy." OK Computer is a global success, both critically and
commercially, and this is another element of the project that we are
proud to present."

     The film premieres at the South by Southwest Music and Film
Festival on March 20th and then makes a four-city theater and college
campus tour to Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Chicago. The
opening night in each city will be followed by midnight screenings and
campus showings.

     Radiohead are currently working on the follow-up to OK Computer.
The recording was one of the most acclaimed releases of 1997, has sold
over 4 million copies worldwide and is platinum in the U.S. (1 million
copies sold). No release date for the new album has been set.
