The Living Archive

Just letting you all know I have a small write-up on Don Campau's Living Archive of Underground Music, a really interesting website that presents Don's own personal history of cassette-culture and underground music along with a growing number of recollections from other tape networkers.

The history of cassette-culture and homemade/DIY music has been poorly documented up to now. The Living Archive is one very good step in the direction of addressing this problem and filling in the gaps in cassette-culture's written and pictorial history. The site also serves as a great resource for finding other sources of information and for exploring what is currently happening with many of the scene's practitioners. Well worth paying a visit!
