LATEST ENTRY IN 33 1/3 BOOK SERIES OUT IN DECEMBER
Ten years ago, Radiohead
released their fourth full-length album, Kid A. While the album received mixed reactions upon its initial
release, it is now being cited as one of the most influential albums of the last decade.
For the latest book in the acclaimed 33 1/3 series, author Marvin Lin attempts to unpack
Kid A by
examining closely its music, artwork, critical reception, promotion, and more. From discussions about Napster and
WTO protests to Marcel Duchamp and Marshall McLuhan, the book is as much about debunking myths as celebrating
the listening experience as a site of socio-political importance.
Marvin Lin's Kid A is now available for pre-order through Amazon and Continuum. It will be released
around December 2010.
