Crawling from beneath a mountainous heap of cassettes, home from an underground tour of the worlds basements,
wearing a crudely fashioned paper crown come America's lost poets of the home-made, atavistic avatars of 8-bit
eighties cheeze and the Ed Woods of the electronic music studio - THE BAD CASSETTES - HOMEPOP MASTERS!

Featuring beautifully contaminated cut and paste soundscapes, neolithic toy piano honky-tonks and tear soaked ballads
with tounge only loosely placed in the cheek. Not rock, not hip hop, not latin, not punk, not jazz, not pop, not dance,
not noise (well, maybe that) but all at once. Call it as you like. We call it...

Ladies and Gentlemen: THE BAD CASSETTES.



3 title 7", white vinyl, in Below standard sleeve
NO ONE TO HAVE SEX WITH
EVERY DAY I HEAR THE SOUND
THE DOGS LOVE TO BITE
