As part of the mass clearout I mentioned earlier, I found three boxes full of cassettes. They haven’t been played in five years so I made the (painful) decision to throw them away. I’m an incredible horder so this was immensely painful. I estimate there were about four hundred of them – prerecorded albums, compilation tapes I’d made for parties, things I’d recorded from the radio, all manner of things. If I remember rightly there would have been a lot of obscure compilations of obscure 80s indie bands.
There were only three things I insisted on holding on to. Bootlegs from two gigs I was at and Marillion’s demo tape from 1981.
But I feel I’m growing as a person :)
