Excavation Series 7 – You/In/Be/Arc

Kev C. has sent us two tapes in the post. Both tapes got played and commented on our Tape Review Show. To be honest, the second tape didn’t get much airplay as such. It was used to add sounds in a spontaneous session with Jeff Surak and Adrian Shephard. (…) Back home, I played the tape in my kitchen. I liked it. It was the only tape I played for a couple of days. Kev had taken sound works from various places around the web, and had created a mixtape….

Don Campau – Tout S’en Va

Don Campau is our long time collaborator. He presents tracks from his vast collection of audio cassettes. He received these tapes since the 1970s. Listeners who tune in to his shows mor frequently slowly achieve knowledge about one of the biggest cultural movements that has existed, and in a newer version still exists: the cassette culture. Don is transferring now most of his tapes to Zeppelin City in the deep south of Germany, where they will become part of a cassette culture museum. As a result Don stumbles upon tapes…

Dai Coelacanth – Greek Seance / I’m your psychic

We don’t know anything about the person who calls himself Dai Coelacanth. The best thing you can do is to believe that this tape came to us as a message in a bottle, or rather as a tape in recycled and sealed wine box. Recorded in Greece, it said. On a Greek Island, observed by the Gods and the tourists visiting the home of those Gods. A tape almost ruined by the heat of the sun. And its content an onomatopoeic attempt to sound like the undertow that drags all the…

Ben Roberts, a Brit in Madrid has been collecting found tapes ever since his youngest youth. What started in thrift stores in his hometown has developed into a fascination that borders at science. Gifted with a hypered sense of being able to read and see into the world that unspools before his very ears, he detects the signs of the past times. In the Ben Roberts Show he…

Don Campau – No Pigeonholes (cassettes 1985 – 1997)

It is always a pleasure to listen to a new show by Don Campau. There’s always a hidden gem; in this show The Cheese and their cheap kisses. The tracks he chose are mostly from the 80s, and not few of them remind of the music styles that were dominant back then. Don’s choice for this show is, well, a bit on the weird side, and a very enjoyable weirdness it is. Hear him introduce the songs, talk about the makers in this new edition of the cassette culture encyclopaedia….
