David Knight - 5th Dec 2008

Keane's new video is a polished, high tech affair by Grant Gee, in one of his infrequent, always notable forays into music videos.

Of course it's largely a sideline from Grant's main task of being the king of music docs. He's made two classics of the genre: Meeting People Is Easy (about Radiohead circa OK Computer), and Joy Division. The latter recently picked up the UK Film Council's best cinema documentary prize at the 2008 Grierson British Documentary Awards.

Of course Grant's made at least one classic video too: Radiohead's No Surprises - the making of which is chronicled in Meeting People Is Easy. And that's brilliantly homaged - video and making of - by Stuart Lanceley's entry in Adam & Joe's Video Wars (and featured by Adam at BUG 10): The Meatballs Song.
