"This was around Christmas or New Years in 1996," Clinch says. "I was hanging out with Radiohead around New York. The band had come to town for something, but they weren't on tour. They were doing Christmas shopping and stuff with their girls. Raygun wanted them on the cover, but the band wasn't interested in doing much. Thom looked at me and said, 'What do you think Danny? Should we do it?' I encouraged them. Thom said, 'We'll do it, but Danny has to take the pictures.'
"We were hanging around 6th Avenue, downtown. I had them all on this bench and I really liked that wall. I had Thom standing on the bench and I was like, 'What if you put your arms off and started to fall and I get down really low?' He just jumped off the bench. I asked him to do it one more time. There's basically two frames, but in the other one Johnny's face is covered by Thom's foot. That was it. It was really a one-off."
