NO WRISTBAND NECESSARY, JUST COME DOWN ON THE DAY
"Music sounds great on cassette I have a big collection of original albums on cassette from artists like Dylan , The Rolling Stones, The Byrds, MC5 & Suicide. I also have great compilation tapes I made to play on Primal Scream tours. Cassette is a cool medium to listen to music on. Warm and fat. Good bottom end. Yeah! X" - Bobby Gillespie 2013
No longer the inadequate, younger sibling of Vinyl and CD, the humble Cassette has been making a resurgence of late. Proving that cassette tapes are not just for those of us who remember buying Nirvana's 'Nevermind' with birthday money, or making lovingly compiled mixtapes for the object of our teenage affections. International Cassette Store Day 2013 is a celebration of a physical product that is accessible, fun, cheap and still going strong in the turbulent current musical climate.
This event sees limited releases from it's organisers - SEXBEAT (Fucked Up), Kissability (Los Campesinos!) and Suplex Cassettes (Fair Ohs, The Proper Ornaments, Lets Wrestle); as well as Transgressive (At The Drive-In, Pulled Apart By Horses), Bella Union (The Flaming Lips), Domino (The Pastels)), 4AD (Deerhunter), Wichita Recordings (Hard Skin), Burger Records (Suicidal Tendancies, Twink), Jagjaguar (Vocano Choir), Fat Cat (Animal Collective), Fire (Guided by Voices), Lex (JJ Doom) and Blood And Biscuits (Efterklang, Mum) and many more. Other labels involved spreading the Cassette love with limited releases are Night School, Jade Tree, Mirror Universe, Reeks of Effort, Art is Hard, Faux Discx, Tye Die Tapes and more...
In addition to it's London launch (which features live performances and dj sets instore), there will also be similar events run in record stores in Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo; as well as recently confirmed events in Australia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, France, Italy, Spain and Germany.
