Radiohead launch social networking site

W.A.S.T.E. is up and running

Radiohead have launched an on-line social networking website along the lines of Facebook.

The band have created a web-based forum called W.A.S.T.E. where fans and friends can share photos, details, view tour dates, and watch videos by various artists such as Battles, Nick Cave, and of course Radiohead themselves.

In a message posted on the site yesterday (April 3), Radiohead wrote, “For those who are interested and want to stick around, we’ll be adding plenty more bits and pieces in the coming weeks and ironing out any wrinkles or annoyances the best we can. Hope you find something interesting to play with.”

Check out the site now at Waste-central.com.
