A four-hour video remix of a Radiohead song is to be auctioned on eBay to raise money for charity.
Videotape is a song off the band’s In Rainbows album, and has been remixed for the extra long one-off release by James Rutledge (AKA Pedro). The VHS remix is signed by all of the members of the band, who gave their full support to Rutledge for the project.
Proceeds from the auction will go to Missing People, the UK’s leading charity for missing and unidentified people. The charity addresses an important cause for Rutledge, whose former bandmate Dave Tyack went missing in Corsica in 2002 and was found dead in 2004.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of signed Radiohead memorabilia, it’s the ultimate Christmas gift for any Radiohead fan,” said Paul Tuohy, CEO of Missing People. “All The money raised will help Missing People continue to provide support for families and missing people themselves.”
The auction ends on December 21, and can be accessed here.
