      They've been remixed in the past, though; LFO, Steve Osborne and
      UNKLE have all rerubbed "Planet Telex", for example, and Fila
      Brazillia and Zero 7 have done the same to "Climbing Up The
      Walls". Speaking of which...

      The Zero 7 mix of "Climbing Up The Walls" was uncommisioned; a
      studio engineer mate of theirs gave them the vocal track and they
      rejigged it without Radiohead's consent or knowledge. The band
      liked it so much, they gave it an official release, and so Zero 7's
      career got off to a flying start.

      On the other hand, there's a Perfecto mix of "Street Spirit (Fade
      Out)" which was never officially released; I'm not sure if it was
      originally a bootleg or not, but I'm pretty sure that if it was,
      Radiohead heard it and turned it down. Didn't stop it from turning up
      on white label, though; hopefully the same will happen with Hybrid's
      mix (or mixes -- as I've said before, they played a 4/4 mix at the
      Cavern and I can't remember whether the one they played in the
      Chamjam set was 4/4 or breaks) :)
