Radiohead offering test pressing of ‘Kid A’ in charity raffle

XL Recordings

A test pressing of Radiohead‘s Kid A is among the prizes for an upcoming charity raffle.

Proceeds will benefit the U.K. organization Gig Buddies, which aims to “enable and empower people with learning disabilities and/or autistic people to enjoy all the great events going on in [the U.K.] by pairing them up with new friends with similar interests to attend events with.”

Other artists donating prizes to the raffle include Florence + the Machine, The National and Melvins.

Kid A was released in 2000. The record found Radiohead experimenting more with electronic sounds, following the critical acclaim of 1997’s OK Computer.
