Exclusive Radiohead Remix for Sale

Yahoo! Music News is reporting that an exclusive remix of Radiohead’s “Videotape” is to go on sale at an online charity auction. The four-hour (!!) remix video will raise funds for Missing People, the UK’s leading charity for missing and unidentified people.

It was recorded by James Rutledge, who has produced and remixed for Bloc Party and The Kills. He was recently included in the NME Future 50 list as one of the “bands, artists and innovators driving music forward”.

The remix will be released on a single VHS tape, signed by the band.

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

Radiohead Thom Yorke

Thom Yorke to get all Classical on us

From BBC Radio 1:

Thom Yorke has remixed a song for a classical album.
The Radiohead singer has teamed up with 11 other artists including members of Gorillaz and The Beta Band for the project, Cortical Songs.

The album, is the brainchild of John Matthias who played violin on Radiohead’s album The Bends, and composer Nick Ryan. It is set for release on 21 July.

Yorke’s classical contribution, which is his first, is an avant garde remix.

Musical score
Along with Yorke, former Verve guitarist Simon Tong and The Beta Band keyboardist John Maclean have worked on remixes for the record.

The Radiohead singer’s contribution follows guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s recent musical score to the Daniel Day-Lewis film There Will Be Blood.

In the past Greenwood has also worked with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and was hired as its composer in residence in 2004.

Radiohead recently completed their UK tour which included two dates at London’s Victoria Park.

Amazing fan video

This has been spread all over the internet over the last few days, including Dead Air Space. James Houston created a remix of “Nude” using a bunch of old computer hardware. He explains, “Based on the lyric (and alternate title) ‘Big Ideas: Don’t get any’ I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.”

Watch for yourself. Pretty amazing…
