Radiohead have launched the Radiohead Public Library, a comprehensive archive of information and audio

Radiohead have launched the Radiohead Public Library, a comprehensive archive of information about the band.

"The internet as a whole has never been a reliable resource for detailed or even accurate information re: Radiohead," a press release explains. "Many sites that attempted to provide some measure of service have long since gone dark as well. The overall effect has been “Radiohead” search results that yield random and/or abbreviated shards: songs and album titles unaccompanied by detailed artwork or any additional context, low quality videos preceded by advertisements and shuffled via algorithms, and so on…

"That ends with the unveiling of the Radiohead Public Library. From today, visitors to Radiohead.com will be able to create their own library card and membership number, and access a highly curated and organised archive of the band’s catalogue and corresponding visuals and various artefacts associated with each album: Detailed artwork, official videos, and ad-free HD live and TV performances, B-Sides and compilation tracks, previously out-of-print merchandise to be custom made on demand, band members’ "office chart” playlists from around the time of In Rainbows, The King of Limbs and A Moon Shaped Pool recording sessions, and more."

To celebrate the launch, each band member - Colin and Jonny Greenwood, Ed O’Brien, Philip Selway and Thom Yorke - will serve as librarian for a day from 20th-24th January. Visit radiohead.com to check it out.
