The reviews for “The King Of Limbs” weren’t exactly glowing, and for the first time in years Radiohead has a really hard album to market. The band’s latest promotional push involves the creation and delivery of a newspaper that can be had for free at selected locations the world over.
This newspaper features stories, poems and illustrations by worldwide artists, and digital copies have also begun surfacing at selected locations (see here).
It’s all very nice and novel, but it seems to me the most noteworthy ramification of the album so far is the clip featuring Thom Yorke’s hiccupped dancing from the “Lotus” video. In case you haven’t seen it…
I don’t know about you, but the more I listen to “The King Of Limbs” the more I feel like dusting my copy of “The Bends”. And no amount of paraphernalia is likely to make me change my mind, I’m afraid.
