Samuel Macklin of Blogglebumcage drops me a line to say, "I can GUARANTEE you that tapes have become a fetishitem. The old 'cassette underground' seems to be making a real resurgence. A lot of the free-folk/noise scene bands seem to be (re)turning to tapes in preference to CDRs--precisely, I suspect, because cassettes have basically disappeared from the mainstream. A lot of the labels specialising in limited run LPs and CDRs with hand-made artwork have started churning out tapes too.
