CASSETTE: A Documentary Needs Funding To Be Made

As regular readers of PeteHatesMusic should know, I am a terrible writer Kickstarter features some pretty cool products, even music related ones. Hypebot has pointed out that a cool sounding documentary about the revival of cassette tapes is nearing it’s campaign deadline, and doesn’t have the $25,000 it requires.

“Help us celebrate the A Side, the B Side, the mixtape, and the whole of cassette culture by supporting Cassette: A Documentary. We’ll look at all parts of popular culture influenced by the cassette, including hip-hop and B-Boy culture, indie rock, home recording, and beyond.”

“We’ve already conducted a number of interviews in the UK, and with your support we’ll be able to speak to manufacturers, musicians, and historians around the world. Along the way, we’ll stop in Zimbabwe to cover the recent boom in cassette culture there.”

So is the cassette tape making a revival, like the recent, surprising boom of vinyl records? Do music lovers hold onto nostalgia so dearly, that they can revive another “dead” form of music media, and one that has such poor audio quality? Well, if you want to see a documentary about this, donate to their campaign. Watch a trailer below to entice you.
