Radiohead to enter newspaper business!

Hold on a minute!  Just when we’re told the newspaper industry is dying with dwindling sales and mass exodus online along come Radiohead to prove themselves contrary yet again.  One of the most pioneering bands of our generation, who have pushed the boundaries of music distribution and mainstream experimental acceptance are releasing a newspaper,  The Universal Sigh, to coincide with the hard copy release of the ‘King of Limbs’.   Isn’t this just plain old mass marketing, old style?  Will the newspaper really have anything to say?

For a band that are so vocal in their support for carbon reduction and driven by new technologies isn’t this a bit of a volte face?
