While We're on Radiohead...

Graduating student James Houston put together a brilliant final project for his Visual Communication course at the Glasgow School of Art that just so happened to dovetail with Radiohead's "Nude" Remix contest:

(via James' Vimeo page) "Based on the lyric (and alternate title) "Big Ideas: Don't get any" I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they're trying their best to do something that they're not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.

It doesn't sound great, as it's not supposed to.

I missed the contest deadline, so I'm offering it here for you to enjoy.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Guitars (rhythm & lead)
Epson LX-81 Dot Matrix Printer - Drums
HP Scanjet 3c - Bass Guitar
Hard Drive array - Act as a collection of bad speakers - Vocals & FX
Listen to Holy Fuck!'s Radiohead Remix entry here.

James has also done some cool work for MTV:
