The Book

"Who's ever written a great work about the immense effort required in order not to create?"
Dostoyevsky Wannabe quoted in Slacker (1991)

"As a term, C86 quickly evolved into shorthand for a guitar-based musical genre characterized by jangling guitars and melodic power pop song structures"
C86 (wikipedia)

Cassettes. Cassette tapes, mixtapes. videotapes, magnetic tape, pre-recorded tape, pirated tape, blank tape, Krapp's Last Tape, this book is none of these. We wanted a title for a poetry sampler and the first thing we thought of was a free sampler of music. Anyway, it's not a tape, it's a book.

Press play.
