A ZX Spectrum program for the OK Computer anniversary

Radiohead has never shied away from arty and elaborate “special edition” versions of its albums, which normally ship to fans with unique artwork and limited vinyl. But Tuesday’s collector’s item release of the OK Computer 20th anniversary edition, priced at a whopping $130/£100, shipped with that most hipster of audio formats included: a C90 audio cassette.

And if you’re wondering whether Radiohead’s bizarre, technology-theorizing landmark album would pack something computer-related into that cassette tape, you might want to dig up your old Sinclair ZX Spectrum cassette drive… More at ars technica.

I like this for 2 reasons- the album is one of the best of all time and I still have a ZX Spectrum in the garage. What a time to be alive!
