Essays, stories, and manifestoes from the real musical underground. The cassette is an egalitarian communication tool that has given many the power to produce and distribute their own music and aural communiqus from the fringe. Intimate and impenetrable, always in their own style and for their own purposes, free of the mediated nets of cash and commerce. Works by Chadbourne, Gunderloy, Cutler, Margolis and others.
