Radiohead: beyond the rainbow

So, the download version of In Rainbows has happened; what about the physical product? The New York Times is reporting that Coran Capshaw's Side One labelette (a side-business to his management of Dave Matthews and others) and XL will release the record in the US and UK respectively. But only for a time: the band are keeping hold of the rights, so the deal will only allow the labels a brief crack of the whip.

Which is only fair - after all, it's not like the labels had to pay for the record to get made, so why should they own the disc?
