Radiohead are flogging a one-off remix of their song Videotape, remixed by James Rutledge and recorded onto a four-hour VHS tape. It's being auctioned on eBay (opens in new tab) to raise money for the charity Missing People.

The tape's accompanying red, blue and green "disintegrating" visuals were designed by Philip M Lane while the matching artwork (fully signed by the band) was designed by Jacob Brandy.
