Product Details

Limited edition of 150. The American Cassette Culture box set documents American pioneers and protagonists of late '70s/early '80s cassette culture. While rock music of the 1970s and '80s became a worldwide mainstream corporate business, the creation of the cassette format opened music production up to everyone, and a DIY network sprung up that enabled musicians to release recordings they had already produced during the '70s. This box of 12 LPs, two 7"s, and the accompanying 48-page LP-sized booklet tells the story behind some of the major influential artists and their earliest recordings produced during the '70s and early '80s, as well as the labels and relevant press covering those cassette recordings. This box is about those artists and people who planted the seed of an independent culture that would develop throughout the '80s and is still active today. It also tells the story of Archie Patterson's Eurock Magazine and Distribution, a highly influential US cassette distribution company, which distributed and/or released many of the early cassette works contained in this box. Includes Don Slepian: LP with tracks from Electronic Music from the Rainbow Isle (1978), Rhythm of Life (1982), and Uncontrolled Voltage (1982) by Synarios (Slepian and Lauri Paisley); Steve Roach: LP with tracks from Now (1982) and previously unreleased material; Marc Barreca: LP with tracks from Raw Fish and Green Tea (1979/'80), Currents (1979/'80), Music Works for Industry (1983), and In a Foreign Land (1977); Anode: double LP with tracks from Anode (1979), Trips North Trips South (1979), Kinetic Experiments (rec. 1974-'79, rel. 1981), Early Tapeworm (1975), Floyd Cramer's Hall of Gold (1975), and Year of The Taperecorder; K. Leimer: double LP with tracks from Translucent/Memory (1978), Natural History/The Mind and Its Likeness (1979), and Installation View (rec. 1977/'78/'80, rel. 1983); Young Scientist (James Husted, Marc Barreca, and Roland Barker): LP with tracks from Over Low Trees... (1979), Life Sciences, and Results Not Answers (1979); Ken Moore: double LP containing Electronic Music Series Vol. 1-5 (recorded 1976-'84): tracks from Tempus Fugit (1980), To Come Into Being (1981), Loubi Stem (1981), To No Avail (1980), and The Jupiter Effect (1984), and a 7" with tracks from Frame of Reference (written 1972, rec. 1977-'79, rel. 1980) and In a Pound of Logic (1983); and Galen: double LP with tracks from Xom (1979), Gulag (1979), and Limacon (1979) (all recorded 1979-'80) and a 7" of bonus material.
