The Original Cassette Collective Thread


Recommended Posts

Here's my tapes. I don't really buy new releases on tape anymore, especially if they're available on a different format, because that's fucking stupid. But I do still buy some demos/comps, as well as the occasional $.25 tape at the record store.

Edit - I'm sure nobody gives a shit, but the glared tapes in the middle column are parts 1 and 2 of Jello Biafra's "No More Cocoons", and the glared tapes in the third column are Overjoid "s/t", The Replacements' "Pleased To Meet Me", and Skankin Pickle's "The Green Album".

Edit 2 - I just realized I have another Faith No More tape and a Less Than Jake tape sitting right on top of my tape rack, but didn't catch them in the photo.

My cassette collection has crept over the 500 mark in last few months, our label also has half a dozen in production, I almost listen to tapes more at this point than vinyl.

I think I listen to cassettes just as much as I listen to vinyl (which is daily). I'm only at about 100+ cassettes right now, but I'm always looking for new additions to my collection!

Nearly all of my tapes were stolen from my car years ago. Most of what i have left are old blank tape rips of vinyl. However, i still have iron maiden's somewhere in time that i bought from sears (or Caldor, but i'm pretty certain it was sears) with birthday money in the 5th grade.

 

here's what's left - barring a positive effort tape comp and shabbagoy demo.

Same thing happened to me. All of my tapes were stolen out of the back  seat of my car. I would like to think some young kids took the tapes home and got into punk/hardcore but they prob. ended up in a dumpster. Huge bummer, I had alot of demos that are hard to find now.

 

I also want that Kid Dynamite demo,lets talk.

A friend of mine runs a pretty much all cassette label and when I was over at his house on Saturday to help him with getting some new releases together, I was really inspired by the set up of his office, so I took a few cues from him and moved an extra Technics deck I had laying around onto one of my work desks while also moving my cassette wall from the bedroom into my office.
