Cassettes

October 29, 2010

In these days when the traditional mainstream music industry is in freefall and anyone can make and release tunes very easily, some people are messing about with older physical formats – I guess there’s a certain perception of ‘coolness’ about releasing your music on 7 inch vinyl for example. I’ve been aware that a few people have been releasing on the crappiest old format of all, the cassette. Here’s a picture of some I saw today. I have no particular ideological objection to cassettes (apart from thinking they’re shit) but to charge £12.99 for a cassette is nothing less than blatant thievery. Rough Trade should be ashamed of themselves.
