The CLUAS Archive: 1998 - 2011



Isn't it quite outstanding news? A new Radiohead album, called In Rainbows, due out in 10 days in digital format... and it's free! Or extremely expensive. It's up to you, faithful music lover.  If a digital download doesn't float your boat, you can fork out 40 quid for a hardbook package with 2 CDs and a Vinyl album too and wait until early December for delivery.

Just bizarre! The Guardian have, conveniently, listed the known tunes with some quite dubious YouTube links.

1. 15 Step

2. Bodysnatchers

3. Nude

4. Weird Fishes/Arpegii

5. All I Need

6. Faust Arp

7. Reckoner

8. House of Cards

9. Jigsaw Falling Into Place

10. Videotape

So how much will you lot all fork out for the digital release?

I won't pay full price on the general principle that MP3s are an inferior product. But for the sheer audacity of this idea (and the fact that it might influence some of the more far-sighted record companies), I'm willing to stump up a few euros. Check out the site - it's lovely.

Isn't it great to be just bloody excited about music again?!
