Mobile version of Green Plastic now available

by Jonathan on January 21, 2010

If you view greenplastic.com on your mobile device, you’ll hopefully be happy to know that it’s a lot easier now. Users of the iPhone/iPod touch, Android, and various other mobile platforms should now see a mobile-formatted version of this site when they arrive. If for some reason you don’t like it, no worries! There’s a option at the bottom which will allow you to switch back to the normal site.

And now we are 12

by Jonathan on March 26, 2009

On March 26, 1997, “A Green Plastic Radiohead Page” was born. Let’s go back to this time, shall well?

OK Computer had yet to be released
– Bill Clinton was still president of the US
– I had to update the site a lot from a university computer lab
– There were a ton of RH fansites out there (Planet Telex, Lift, Tony’s RH Page, Polyethylene, etc…)
– The site originally was hosted on a free AOL homepage
– I really had no idea what I was doing
– People were really convinced that Thom and Stanley were the same person
– Animated gifs (’nuff said!)

12 years later and we are still around. While it’s become more and more difficult to give time to the site, it’s still a joy to run and I hope to be around for a long time. Many many thanks to everyone that has ever contributed to the site and of course, thanks to the band who have always had nothing but kind words to say about GP and allowed me and the other fansites the freedom to do what we wanted.

No alarms and no excuses

by Jonathan on January 24, 2007

Hello there… Remember this site?

First off, apologies for the lack of updates. There’s really no excuse other than personal and work lives became much more important over the last few months. 2007 should be better folks. It has to be better as this year marks 10 years of GP. Can you believe that? 10 years?! When I first started Green Plastic on my free AOL member page, I had no idea that it would of been a part of my life for this long. It’s gotten me jobs, it’s introduced me to new people, and it’s given me the opportunity to meet the band. For those that thought that I had given up on the site, fear not! While work and life have become more important to me, I will always have a place for this site. I mentioned in the last update that a redesign is in progress. That is still happening. I did tweak the older layout today as you may have noticed.

Okay, enough of that. Let me tell you what Radiohead has been doing since we last updated:

Most importantly, the band are back at work on the new album. Writing in the Dead Air Space blog last week, Thom mentioned that the band were “working on a version of 15step and rebuilding our studio in the wind.” He also suggests that if you live in the UK, that you visit http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/trident/.

Thom spoke in an interview recently saying that the new album is similar to OK Computer but “but much more terrifying.” The album should include songs like “Videotape” and “Bangers N Mash.” There’s still no date on the album release. Stay posted…

Thom Yorke’s Eraser is nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Alternative Music Album” category. He faces stiff competition from the Arctic Monkeys, The Flaming Lips, Gnarls Barkley, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The 49th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled for February 11, 2007 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Thom is also nominated for the “British Male Solo” award at this year’s Brit Awards. James Morrison, Jarvis Cocker, Lemar and Paolo Nutini are all nominated too. The awards take place at London’s Earls Court Arena on February 14th.

There is plenty of other news, which we’ll post up soon. In the meantime, check out this video of an interview with Thom back in October:

(thanks to everyone that wrote in concerned about the status of the site. all is well)

Interview with GP Webmaster

by Jonathan on May 17, 2001

There is an article at Digital Music Weekly which talks about the Online promotion for Amnesiac. The article also has a small interview piece with a certain Green Plastic Webmaster. *blushes* 🙂

You can read the full NME interview with Thom here.

Also from the NME:

Radiohead are to appear on ‘Top of the Pops’. The band will record a live version their forthcoming single ‘Pyramid Song’ at a filming in west London later today (May 17). In addition, they will also record a version of ‘Knives Out’, the track which is strongly rumoured to be the second single from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Amnesiac’, released on June 4 via Parlophone. It is expected that neither track will feature on this week’s edition of the popular BBC chart show, broadcast every Friday from 7.30pm – instead the songs will be used in a future broadcast.”

Read the article here.

There is a review of Amnesiac at stopsmiling.net

There are going to be some Amnesiac listening parties in Canada on May 24. Right now we only know of two so hopefully there will be more announced soon. One will be happening at the Coliseum Movie Theater in Ottawa. The other will at the Famous Players Paramount Theatre in Toronto where you need to bring in a non-perishable food item in order to get in. It starts at 11pm.

You can order the Japanese “Pyramid Song” maxi single at http://www.towerrecords.co.jp/int/index.html or http://www.hmv.co.jp/eng.asp.
