The Radiohead album ‘The King of Limbs’ will be available for purchase in all good record stores everywhere on Monday 28th March, except in the United States of America and in Canada, where for reasons beyond the purview of this writer it will be available from Tuesday 29th March. On VINYL! On COMPACT DISC! As a DOWNLOAD!

  1. I love this little thing they throw on the site as well....


    This newspaper IS NOT the newspaper that accompanies the Newspaper Album version of The King of Limbs.

    This event WILL NOT be repeated.

    This event IS NOT a live performance by Radiohead.

  2. The Washington DC locations are a mess. One of the two addresses given originally doesn't even exist (784 Jefferson NW). It's been changed and it's even more messed up than it was. No idea where to go. Is this part of some nefarious plan?

  3. I'm wondering where in or around Union Station The Universal Sigh will be distributed. It says "accredited vendors." There's a music store there. And either one or two Hudson News locations. And the bookstore on the main level. Unless it's just going to be AT Union Station in some random area. I'm really clueless about this. It kinda sucks too because I'll be working and I'm North Bethesda. I could get out as early 3 but I probably wouldn't even get there till almost 4. So I'm ALMOST not gonna go try to get a copy as three hours would of passed. But as fan, I'm so tempted!

  4. At least you guys are close to a major location. I would have to fly to one to have a chance to get a copy. It would have been pretty cool to meet Thom and get a personal copy from him.
