  Cassette culture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cassette culture was in part an offshoot of the mail art movement of the 1970s and1980s, and in both the United States and the United Kingdom it owed a lot to the DIY ethic of punk.
DIY cassette labels like Pass The Buck, Octopus Head, Mindkill, and others marked a new wave of rejecting mainstream production standards and capitalist values in the music business.
Cassette culture declined with the appearance of new technologies such as the Internet, MP3 files, file sharing, and CD recorders, which have led to new methods of distribution.

 Cassette culture: Definition and links.
Cassette Culture was a offshoot of the Mail Art movement of the 1970s and 1980s.
Anybody who had access to copying equipment could release a tape and publicise it in the network of fanzines and newsletters that existed around this scene, therefore cassette culture was an ideal and very democratic method for making available music that was never likely to have mainstream appeal.
Cassette culture received something of a mainstream boost when acknowledged for a short while by the early 1980s UK 'rock media'.

Many anarcho-punks are supporters of issues such as animal rights, feminism, the anti-war movement and are often pacifist (although some support organisations such as Class War) and tend to be in favour of direct action.
Many anarcho-punk bands, especially at the local level of unsigned groups, have taken on what is known as a "DIY" ethic: that is, Doing It Yourself, indeed a popular Anarcho-punk slogan reads "DIY not EMI", a reference to a conscious rejection of the major record company of that name.
The anarcho-punk movement also had its own network of fanzines (sometimes called punk-zines) which diseminated news, ideas and artwork from the scene.

Although one can argue that, ironically, New Age music is one of the more commercial by-products of the cassette culture, the cassette network has also been a breeding ground for experimental musicians and sound artists, and a hot bed for the industrial music community.
Like fanzine culture, the cassette underground is primarily an off-shoot of punk, because of the DIY (do-it-yourself) directive (many claim the fanzine Op was responsible for the real rise in cassette culture).
Cassette Mythos is a dense compilation of ideas and people who populate a relatively undocumented universe.

 Guardian Unlimited | Arts Friday Review | Last night a mix tape saved my life
Earlier this year, Cassette Stories, an exhibition at the Museum of Communication in Hamburg, threw a fond light on the home-mix tape as diary or love letter.
The picture that emerged was of the mix cassette as a way of re-sequencing music to make sense of our most stubbornly inexpressible feelings, a way of explaining ourselves to someone we love, or to ourselves.
More recently, record companies have started to issue promos in cassette form, not only because they stand out from the crowd but also - irony of ironies - because the original bootlegger's medium turns out to be so much harder to copy.

DIY cassette labels were fiercely independent recorded music labels that chiefly released music on cassettes as a cheap and easy way to distribute their product.
In the 1980s many labels started to collaborate with each other and a culture of swapping and assisting with each other`s distribution began.
This rapidly turned into a DIY cassette movement becoming widespread enough for the mainstream music papers and major labels to take notice.

Inspired by Zappa, Captain Beefheart [+], John Cage [+], the Residents [+], and free jazz, the LAFMS was an underground avant-rock movement and a record label that presaged everything from punk to plunderphonics, while their utterly unconventional approach denied them any chance of mainstream success.
This led to several Blorp Essette compilations set up along similar lines in 1978 and 1980, further widening the LAFMS web and their attitude that anyone should have the right to be on record.
It can't be denied that their influence has carried forward through punk in the late '70s to the cassette-tape trader movement of the '80s, while much of their own music is still as unsettlingly weird as it was in the mid-'70s.

However, its origins can be traced to America's mid- 60s garage bands, who made incompetent but enthusiastic stabs at post- stones R&B. The Seeds fuzzy classic 'Pushin' 'Too Hard' was the bench- mark until MC5, The Stooges and The New York Dolls added jaded lyrics to the agenda in the Early 70s.
From there it was a short step to the Sex Pistols seething malice and slashing guitar- a DIY destruction of traditional tunesmithery without which Rock would have sunk in musical virtuosity and lyrical vagueness.

Even so, they were at the forefront of a then-radical DIY movement of artists who distributed their music on cassette, free of charge.
While "Do It Yourself" was punk's liberating credo, the Instant Automatons pushed the DIY ethic further than many of their contemporaries, with regard to how they played their music, how they recorded it, and how they distributed it.
Although it doesn't include material from their earliest cassettes and focuses primarily on their vinyl appearances, this 73-minute/27-track release offers a more than generous sampling of the Instant Automatons' work.
