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.

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.

I know I only posted this recently, but as it is Cassette Store day today I thought I would post it again. This is a beautifully made and packaged cassette. I also love the music too, which makes it even better.

I felt compelled to get this some time ago, and I have to say that I’ve barely used it. I does make me laugh that someone would produce such a thing though. It only cost a couple of quid on eBay though.
