Les rumeurs qui ont précédées l'annonce officielle de
la sortie de l'album (voir ci-dessous) mentionnaient pureasfiction,
giant cogs turn voire Emperor New Clothes (ou ENC)
comme titres possibles.
For us to work on our own in these various locations
was like coming full circle, back to before we signed a deal and we were just
making demos. It would just be the five of us and a little recorder, and it
was a very unselfconscious way of working.
Stanley, why Kid A?
mmm. why OK Computer?
theyre all mad.

Who's responsible for the title?
ctually my sequencer is responsible. That's what
my sequencer called the opening melodies of that song. I have no recollection
of writing it at all. Then I found it, and it was called "Kiddae".
Can we talk about your artwork? Is it your friend Stanley,
or is it you?
Stanley really does most of it.
It's cute. He seems like a funny fellow. So, is it his visual
It's just basically happening all at the same time.
In our studio we have everything set up in different areas of the same space,
so when things are going on that I'm not interested in with the recording then
I go upstairs with him and do stuff. It normally ends up being something that
we've come up with together, because either one of us... If he goes off on his
own it doesn't really work and if I go off on my own it doesn't really work.
So I end up in our studio collaborating all the time, walking into a situation
cold and walking out again. That's my role, really. It makes me really happy
because I have such a short attention span, but one of the things I'm good at
is being able to spark people off.
It seems as though there's a lot of editing and refining going
Ha! Yeah, everything we ever fucking do is editing,
this whole album was written... I don't even think the songs were written, they
were edited! You know what I mean? It's really weird. It suddenly dawned on
me last night. I started thinking about it, the only writing involved was chucking
out the crap, and that went on for... It even went for how the music was put
together, which was really weird.
troisième promo, cartonné comme un livre d'enfant.
deuxième promo disponible (après la version confidentielle d'EMI,
un simple gravage artisanal)

dans la huitième (constituée de deux pages collées).

Les dessins sont des peintures de Stanley et Tchock (abréviation
de Chocolate Farm ?). Par exemple, le tableau de la page 5 est un
morceau inédit du long poster officiel de la tournée de
juin, avec un ours blanc énorme.
Un volet comporte la suite du texte sur la fonte des réserves
glacières de la planète, et une adresse
|Les tampons pour chaque disque varient en fonction des pays.
À propos de la pochette, on peut y observer trois visages semblables
tournées vers le ciel... Non ? Kid A, B, C ?
|Bien qu'interdit de séjour dans l'Empire du Milieu
pour participation trop active aux Tibetan
Freedom Concerts, Radiohead a sorti Kid A en Chine.

some of it in the bin. most of it unnamed. dont panic.
message board, 6 mars 2000
not sure at the moment. we have a lot of unfinished
stuff to finish. next year sometime. did you know we have to plan 5 months in
advance of anything happening. its completley daft.
fin 1999, à propos de la date de
sortie de Kid A
weeeell, we've finished seven songs, but aren't
sure how many of them are useable....but we're working on it. Remember that
there's a 3 month delay between us finishing and a record reaching gramophone
message board, 27 novembre 1999
so what i'm actually saying is that the recording
part of this record will be finished in a couple of days......but you know if
we're consistent in our behavioural patterns, then you might finally hear something
in the autumn of '01............after arguments over track-listing, running
orders, etc.........who'll be the first to suggest the quadruple album mixed
in surroud sound?
....................might throw it in there myself to stir things up a bit.....the
running order for an album is so important...... i don't think you have any
idea how vital it is until you actually fuck it up which we did big time on
the first record.....for 'OK Computer' it was a nightmare, agendas
had been set and at one time it was like bloody horse-trading............. "if
you want 'let down' on the record then it only makes sense if 'electioneering'
is on there too"......maybe it won't be such a torrid experience this time........somehow
i don't think so and that's probably right anyway.
[...] actually the truth is that at such
a crucial time of the album........tracklisting, rehearsals, titles, arguments
and full on fist fights......i probably haven't been at my most objective........there
is however one cert in my mind....i fucking love this record now........and
that's not me attempting to whip others into a kind of mass marketing aren't
we great type frenzy...........it's the god's honest truth, governor..........
