And now we are 12

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.

New Radiohead Remix Contest

w.a.s.t.e. sent out an email last week about a new remix contest that is going on:

To coincide with asking radio stations to think about playing Reckoner we are breaking up the tune into pieces for you to remix. After the insane response we got from the Nude remix stems and the site that was dedicated to your remixes…

Unique visitors: 6,193,776, Page Views: 29,090,134, Hits: 58,340,512, Bandwidth: 10.666 Terabytes, Number of mixes: 2,252, Number of votes: 461,090, Number of track listens: 1,745,304

…we thought it only fair to do the same with a tune that at least is in 4/4. You can get the stems (the different instruments/elements) from here
Sample, cut, take the sounds, whatever. Play it in a club. Or your room. Then if you want you can upload your finished mixes to and be judged by everyone else. You can create a widget allowing votes from your own site, Facebook or MySpace to be sent through too. To start things off we asked James Holden and Diplo to do their versions.

Oh, and by the way, if you weren’t lucky enough to get your hands on one of our recycled plastic bottle shirts at a show this summer, you’ll be glad to hear we’ve made some more and they are available at the w.a.s.t.e. shop here

GP In Rainbows Radiohead

Oh, and by the way, webcast tonight

A note was posted on Dead Air Space today hinting to a possible webcast coming soon. Our guess is that it will be tonight’s show in Santa Barbara.

Now wouldn’t that be amazing?

Stay tuned to DAS….

UPDATE: Yup, it’s official. Webcast tonight!

From Colin:
Hello! To celebrate the end of a brilliant tour, we’re going to webcast the last show here in America. We’ll be playing live in Santa Barbara, at the Bowl. It’s one of our favourite places to play; I think we’ve ended tours there before, once even playing a cover of ‘ cinnamon girl ‘. It’s not too big, in fact it’s very intimate, a small arena with a dirt floor, set in pretty countryside. It should be a special night, for lots of reasons, and we’re going to try and share as much of it as we can on the webcast. Nigel, our producer, will be helping out getting it to you, so if it goes wrong….It’s live!

Thank you so much to everyone who’s come and seen us this year; it has truly been the most special and exciting tour for all of us.

Webcast details to follow…
