    First-generation reprint Radiohead poster for the Kid A album

    First-generation reprint of Radiohead's Amnesiac Poster professionally printed onto 250gsm silk art.

    Professionally scanned from an original in the private collection that belonged to the late great Carol Baxter. Carol was an executive from EMI/Parlophone who amongst other bands, was responsible for the launch of Radiohead. Carol collected anything and everything music related during her fantastic career.

    Kid A was the fourth studio album by Radiohead, released on 2 October 2000 by Parlophone. After the stress of promoting Radiohead's acclaimed 1997 album OK Computer, songwriter Thom Yorke envisioned a radical change in direction. The band incorporated synthesisers, drum machines, strings and brass, drawing influence from electronic music, ambient music, krautrock, jazz, and 20th-century classical music.
     
    They recorded Kid A with OK Computer producer Nigel Godrich in Paris, Copenhagen, Gloucestershire and their hometown Oxford, England. Another album recorded in the same sessions, Amnesiac, was released the following year.
    Radiohead released no singles or music videos to promote Kid A and conducted few interviews and photoshoots. Instead, they became one of the first major acts to use the internet as a promotional tool; the album was made available to stream and was promoted with short animated films featuring music and artwork. Bootlegs of early performances were shared on file-sharing services, and the album was leaked before release.
     
    Kid A debuted at the top of the charts in Britain, and became Radiohead's first number-one album in the United States; it has been certified platinum in Australia, Canada, France, Japan, the US and the UK.
     
    Like OK Computer, it won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Its departure from Radiohead's earlier sound divided fans and critics, and some dismissed it as pretentious, deliberately obscure, or derivative. However, Kid A later attracted wider acclaim; at the turn of the decade, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and the Times ranked Kid A the greatest album of the 2000s. In 2012, Rolling Stone ranked it number 67 on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

    Our posters are 100% original and exclusive to The Original Poster Shop.

    It’s true that there are many outlets that you can purchase posters from, so what makes us different? The answer is in the product itself. 

    The vast majority of poster suppliers in the world today sell reproduction posters. These are modern reprinted posters that are produced at a much later date than the originals. On the face of it, these copies may look virtually the same as the originals, but that is where the similarity ends. 

    When buying a reproduction poster, you are in essence buying a novelty item, an item that although may superficially look the part, has no real value, history and is certainly not an investment.

    We at The Original Poster Shop only ever provide our customers with original Record and Film Company licensed authentic posters. These posters are beautifully printed, using only the finest quality materials. 

    They were produced and the time that the event or product was being promoted, making them a true piece from the era. 

    Bearing in mind that the majority of the posters were manufactured to be displayed outside, in inclement weather, they are not only beautiful, but also incredibly durable collectors items.

    We only stock original posters and have very limited quantities of some posters, so once these are depleted, they will be removed from sale - remember, we do not sell reproduction posters!
