Last night’s playback in NYC

The Kid A playback for media and fans went very well last night in the Sony IMAX theatre at Lincoln Center in New York City. The lucky people who were let in were treated to a multimedia display on the huge IMAX screen while they listened to Kid A. We have a couple of reviews for you, one from someone who attended the playback and the media cocktail party, and some from fans who were let in. Enjoy!

You can also read NME’s article about it here.

Now you can “see it all”

MTV has just introduced “webeos”, music videos on the web. On of their first ones is a webeo for Bjork’s “I’ve Seen It All” but unfortunately it is a version without Thom. Nevertheless, it’s pretty neat! Go here to view!

Thom recently did a duet with Bjork on the song for her soundtrack to her movie “Dancer in the Dark.” The soundtrack, with the Thom version, will be out on September 15th.

Just a reminder…

That Kid A will be played on Steve Lamaq’s show on the UK radio station, Radio 1, on Monday, September 18th. The album will also be aired on the Dutch radio station VPRO, on the same night. The airing will happen between 22:00 and 23:00.

If you can’t listen to it, there will be many airings of the album plus other goodies on a lot of the fan sites, including Green Plastic, courtesy of Capitol Record’s iBlip. If you have a Radiohead site and would like to host the iBlip, go here. The fun should start on September 11th.

Bjork on working with Thom

Bjork was recently interview by Time Out and said the following about working with Thom on “I’ve Seen It All”:

“It was my idea to work with Thom. We spent four days in Spain just singing as and when we felt like it. He doesn’t do things lightly.”

The latest from the NME

RADIOHEAD’s long-awaited new album ‘KID A’ will be unveiled on Friday morning (August 18) – and will be among the first people in the world to hear it.

Our reporter will be on hand to bring a track-by-track report as soon as the playback has taken place, at 10am in a secret location in north London.

In other Radiohead news, mystery surrounds a press release, supposedly from the US, which has been “leaked.” It claims that the release of ‘Kid A’ will be accompanied by, amongst other things, a direct link to ‘Lost Children’ – a hidden website containing constantly changing Radiohead rarities, a “four-hour webcast at the end of August from the band’s studio in Oxford” and a live performance at the Air studios in London on September 4-5 for 200-300 invited guests.

A UK spokesperson for the band has been unable to confirm or deny the authenticity of the “press release”.

She told that some of the information on the release was “definitely true”, such as the band producing a series of animated “video blips” which will be used for Internet and regional promotion, but questioned the other, more ambitious claims on the release.

There is currently no confirmation on the official Radiohead website,, and the more credible unofficial band sites, such have dismissed the release as a hoax.
