    what to do about cassettes?

    I'm moving again so once more I'm faced with the question of whether to keep or dispose of my large (and heavy) collection of cassettes. It's mostly hip hop, spanning the mid-80s to early-90s. I'm still attached to the music but it's been years since I've had the tape deck plugged in and...

    Music that's popular in the Middle East

    Here's an interesting one. I'm curious to know how the effects of evil American/English/European capitalism have infiltrated that outpost of civilisation that is the middle East. I'm curious to know how their social/physical environment affects the type of sounds they respond to. So far I can...

    Walkman chic

    My minidisc recently broke. Unable to afford a new one let alone a fancy ipod gizmo, I've dug out my battered but much-loved Walkman. Rediscovered loads of great tapes and two sides of an album. Seeing a much trendier friend he tells me Walkmans are the new cool. What with every tom dick and...
