Yes, thats right we are getting information on an event for Indie stores celebrating the humble and much maligned Cassette. A recent resurgence in Analogue interest has undoubtedly been the catalyst for this. The International CASSETTE STORE DAY is planned for September 7th. Details are all abit sketchy at the moment but will keep you updated with details as we get them, for now here is some info...
The project's leaders are a trio of labels that are already in the habit
of releasing new music on cassette: Sexbeat, Kissability and Suplex
Cassettes. F**ked Up and Fair Ohs are among the bands who will issue
special Cassette Day recordings, and partners like 4AD, Bella Union,
Wichita, Kanine and Domino have vowed to reissue classic records that
never made it to magnetic tape. These will include LPs by the Flaming Lips, Deerhunter, At the Drive-In and the Pastels.
All sounds very interesting....
