To mark the 30 year anniversary of Radiohead’s formation, a new pair of books, Kid A Mnesia and Fear Stalks the Land!, co-written by Donwood and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, explore the process, artwork and lyrics of the albums Kid A and Amnesiac.

Donwood discusses his work with Dan Richards, his co-author (alongside Robert Macfarlane) of Holloway.
