4 MINUTE WARNING
WASTE, we’re very impressed. Unless it’s a hoax. In which case, yeah we knew it all along.
Incidentally, inrainbows.com was registered June 15th. Administrative contact? Sandbag Ltd (W.A.S.T.E.’s sister company). Technical contact? Phil Allsopp (Radiohead.com programmer).
No label? Ten day marketing? Optional pricing? Scatter your brain on that, Rick Rubin.
So, who’s going for the deluxe?
UPDATE: For those nervous to take the e-com jump, we just got a valid e-mail confirmation from W.A.S.T.E.:
This transaction will appear on your credit card bill as WASTE PRODUCTS LTD. or a shortened version of this.
