Of course, not all tapes are music. This is a favourite interview with Laurie Anderson, who remains as one of my favourite artists of all time.

I’ve listened to this often, and always find it insightful, although I think I just like to hear the sound of her voice.

Unknown Public is now long gone, but I was an early subscriber, and this is the first ever issue. I actually ordered it on CD I think but got the first one on cassette then had it changed. So this is the only cassette version I’ve got.

The whole package was beautifully made and it is a lovely object in its own right.

Cassette Store Day 2015: Favourite Cassettes – Jean the Birdman

It was a bit of a surprise collaboration in my opinion, but a good one, and this is one of the songs I liked the most from the album.

Cassette singles are such an anachronism but I love them, so I had to keep this one.
