You can't find tapes for most bands because they don't make them...

yeah, limited edition, not every single album in existence is going to be on tape, there is a reason the cd exists, it overcame the tape, and now downloads are taking over cds, its all just obselete, no point in it really, and its funny now that when we do find a tape, we're so stoked, i know i am, same with vinyl, but yeah, you get the point, most dont exists, lucky if you do find that rare copy, id love to have the used self titled on tape bad ass

Diggup Tapes is a label based in raleigh that releases everything on tapes. they don't really have a well-known roster; mostly up-and-coming stuff. my friend's band released a couple eps through them. if you're in to the idea of collecting tapes, though, diggup is a sweet label to get behind.

I hate to poop all over your interests, but I just don't see a single practical purpose behind releasing new cassette tapes.

Just seems like a silly gimmick to me. I feel like any case for tapes can be made better for vinyl, digital, or CDs. I mean, if it's just for collecting purposes, why not just sell limited edition t-shirts, posters, and bobble heads?

Don't let my disdain for your hobby bum you out, though! I just don't get it.

I've been kind of wanting to buy one or two cassettes just because my car only has a tape player. It's not really a big deal, since I have one of those new fangled tape to iPod connectors, but it would be kinda cool.

It makes more sense to record your own cassette tapes instead of buying new ones if you want them at all.

consider the only true rock band of modern times and one of the greatest bands ever, so unique and different then the rest of music...12 years of rocking and still riding strong...credited for creating a new genre of music and being the nirvana of the day...hands down the greatest thing to happen to humanity...thats how bad the used are.
