KID A and Amnesiac were released just a few months apart, in October 2000 and May 2001 respectively. They were recorded and produced in the same sessions, split into two separate LPs as the band decided against a double album. Both featured large amounts of sonic experimentation, pushing the band further away from the conventions of indie rock.
The full set of releases falling under the KID A MNESIA banner are as follows:
Kid Amnesiette, a two-cassette set collecting KID A, Amnesiac and KID AMNESIAE. Also features a 36-page booklet filled with “artwork of great strangeness and suffused with worrisome portents of the future – the future which we now inhabit.”
The Scarry Book, a hardback art book joined by 180g 12-inch half-speed cut vinyl pressings of KID A and Amnesiac, and a 12-inch LP of KID AMNESIAE. The art book is around vinyl record dimensions, featuring 36-pages of KID A and Amnesiac-related artwork.
KID A MNESIA hardback art catalogue, a 360-page book collating more than 300 colour artworks by Thom Yorke and Stanley Donwood. These include insomniac biro scrawls to six-foot painted canvases, from scissors-and-glue collages to immense digital landscapes, all created whilst the two albums were being created.
Fear Stalks The Land!, a paperback book gathering the writings of Thom Yorke and Stanley Donwood. The 176-page book features “faxes, notes, fledgling lyrics, sketches, lists of all kinds and scribblings.”
The three albums will also be being released on black vinyl, CD and digitally.
