Yet another new cassette release from Eric

Thought I’d check out the Academia Bandcamp page yesterday and came across yet another new Eric cassette.  Its called Ghost of Christmas Future and appears to include some previously released tracks though I believe re-recorded.  You can buy it direct from Eric himself (Who is also selling Cdrs).       Advertisements

New Eric Gaffney Cassettes

Academia Tapes who previously released Eric’s Gracefully Aging Hippy Soloist cassette now have two new tapes available.  The first is Land of Make Believe which appears to be new tracks recorded in 2015. The second is Supernatural Force (III Originals) which features original versions of Eric’s III tracks. Both tapes can be purchased directly from Eric…

Back to the Egg, Asshole…Finally

So I’ve been after this cassette for ages and I finally snagged a copy off Discogs.  Now whilst there are still a few small holes in my collection…That charity edition of 1 I am not expecting to get my hands on anytime soon!  nevertheless this does feel like a milestone as it is probably the…

Eric Gaffney – A Cassetterospective

Every time I nearly give up my Joyful Noise VIP membership I’m given a reason to stick it out – Its almost as if they know what I’m thinking. Last week this happened again and against all expectation they announced that they are releasing Eric Gaffney’s Cassetterospective – A very fancy boxset featuring 10 cassettes of…

Academia Cassettes and Eric Gaffney

Something I thought I’d like to share for those who missed it and care. Eric has recently had a couple of releases on the Academia cassette label. Last year they released Eric and the late Charles Ondras’ release under the moniker the Gracefully Aging Hippy Soloists for Cassette Store Day which was released in a…

Joyful Noise Summer 2013 Sampler

So I finally got my Dumb Numbers LP through from Joyful Noise and I have to say what a great album (Although there was a pang of sadness that I had not managed to snag one of the copies with the David Lynch print).  For some reason I wasn’t expecting much from the album and…

The Folk Implosion – Dare to be Surprised Cassette

Update: Well either this is genuine and a promo or someone is going around making these tapes and selling them as legit.  I just found one on Ebay on a different colour card so the plot thickens… Check out Ebay link here. Now I’m not sure if this is genuine or just something someone knocked…

Losers?

Losers indeed. Well none of the tracks on any of Lou’s Losers named releases could ever realistically be called winners but then what does winning really mean? Would winning in the context of Rock and Roll be selling a millions copies? Winning an award? Success with the fairer sex? Perhaps all these things rolled into…

CAPGUN A Shrimper Compilation $2.00

Poppy, Punky, Industrial, Folk Neato Things…  Well that pretty much sums this up doesn’t it! This handmade compilation features Lou’s “Commercial Losers” Sensitive Dull thump, King of the dry hump.  Other bands are the usual mixture of Shrimper’s roster including WCKR SPGT, Franklin Bruno, Refrigerator and all your other Inland Empire faves!  Whatever that even…

Lou Barlow – Live at Missing Link Records

You may find this ridiculous but this post is for a cassette that I have not even listened to yet.  In fact I doubt I will ever listen to it.  What drove me to write this post was a response to my first ever comment on this site (Hey I think only 5 people have…

Walk through this world with the Folk Implosion

Walk thru this world with the Folk Implosion cassette A lovely little tape this one on Chocolate Monk cassettes out of Brighton who also released a tape by another of my favourite bands Melt Banana.  Quite a rare one this so thank goodness for Ebay or I doubt I’d ever have tracked it down…In fact…
