Wired 13.04: PLAY

Thurston Moore on Cassette Culture:

Wired 13.04: PLAY:

"I suppose the record industry expected consumers to buy cassettes of the LPs, and some surely did, but hey - why not just buy blank cassettes and record tracks from LPs instead? Of course, this is what every Walkman user did, and before long there were warning stickers on records and cassettes, stating: home taping is killing music! It was a quaint forebear of today's industry paranoia over downloading and CD burning."

and it's going to be a book!
I'll rush out to my independent bookstore and grab a copy as soon as it's available...
or I'll order it from Powell's...
or something...
