The following message was posted on the official RH message board:

Okay stand by your beds polish your medals and listen in.

I would be grateful if you could let anybody you have on your mailing list find out about the following. ”

here’s how it will work…………..

If you can be in London on the 17th August send one (and only one) e-mail with your name as the subject to correspondence@waste.uk.com

the first fifty w.a.s.t.e.r.s chosen at random will be notified (on tuesday 15th by return e-mail) of the details of the playback sessions .

Did You Get Your Tickets?

Don’t worry, you’re not alone if you didn’t. Radiohead’s only announced show this year at the Royal Festival Hall in London sold out in less than 30 minutes! A spokesman of the venue told NME: “This is totally unprecedented for us, although not unexpected. All of our 40 phone lines have been jammed all morning and we have one of the biggest box offices in London. There is still a huge amount of traffic on our website, but people are just getting turned away!”

The concert in set for July 1, 2000, and as reported earlier is part of Scott Walker’s Meltdown 2000 Festival.
