Perhaps the original democratic, barrier-breaking format in modern music, the cassette tape still refuses to die. Exploring the role of the cassette tape in the
proliferation of pop culture, the World Premiere of CASSETTE (dir: Zack Taylor, USA) features musical luminaries such as Henry Rollins, Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) and Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi), who appear alongside a legion of young bands still releasing music on tape. There’s also a whole segment shot at Rough Trade East on Brick Lane in east London.
The World Premiere of CASSETTE takes place at East End Film Festival on Monday 27 June.
