A well-made mixed tape is often the most painful reminder of a break-up. One of the best mixed tapes ever was full of things like Sugar Magnolia, Brown-Eyed Girl and Phish songs (obviously it was the 90’s and the guy was a bit of a hippie).
For anyone that’s ever made or played a mixed tape. And then cursed or cried when it got eaten up by an old tape deck this soon to be released (10/09) anthology is for you. It’s the perfect complement to our book.
Advance Praise for CASSETTE FROM MY EX:
“Anyone who understands the obsessive attention to detail, the time it took to collate, select, and edit the content of a perfectly executed mix tape, or just someone who appreciated the rhythms and nuances of such extraordinary artifacts will treasure this collection of stories, comfortable and secure in the knowledge that such exquisite efforts were not made in vain and indeed there was a time when a humble cassette tape was perhaps the greatest gift of all.”
– Shirley Manson, lead singer of Garbage
