FIFTY24SF

Radiohead's Cover Artist Stanley Donwood on Spam, 'In Rainbows,' Fire Breathing and His First U.S. Show Tomorrow Night at FIFTY24SF

For his first-ever U.S. show, Stanley Donwood, the man behind each of Radiohead's iconic album covers, chose to touch down at FIFTY24SF gallery in Lower Haight. The show, which opens tomorrow night, will feature Donwood's iconic art, as well as a crazy sound installation called the "Overnormalizer."

Over several cups of tea and cigarettes, I sat down to talk with Donwood and his collaborator John Matthias (a physicist and instrumental songwriter) about their obsession with spam emails, the "Overnormalizer" and of course, working with Radiohead.
