Bookending the 90s

The picture alone is worth the price of admission (it looks pretty cold there, eh?), but The Quietus has a nice feature on the two most recent 33 1/3s, Slint's Spiderland and Radiohead's Kid A.
"...from [Slint's] minimalist, obscure, dour, pre-internet, word of mouth start to leftfield indie rock in the 1990s, Continuum pull a blinder by choosing the altogether more world bestriding, maximalist, inextricably tied to the internet, fin de siecle summoning, not to mention multi-million selling Kid A - as the subject for volume 76."
