Cassette Culture

An ongoing series cross-posted from instagram.com/dsqt

Cleaned out the office a bit this weekend, and was reminded that when I interviewed Squarepusher back in 2001, I used an authentic, artisanal microcassette.

Being a cheapskate in the late 1990s when interviewing musicians meant not only using both sides of a cassette tape, but also unintentionally summoning up great hypothetical supergroups.

I’m apparently prepared for when the cassette tape revival levels up to the VHS revival, presuming these haven’t congealed in the interim.
