    The much anticipated reissue of 1987's classic R. Stevie Moore album 'Teenage Spectacular.

    When I started this little label, I had two firm ideas what I wanted to achieve with it. 1: Release bands that I love. 2: Release those bands on the format I love, tapes. As long as I stick to those rules I know magical things can happen, because when has blindly doing something for love without fear of consequence ever got anyone into trouble? Never right? So here I am, with my 50th release and its a goddamn monster. It's a re-release of what's considered one of the best albums by THE GODFATHER OF CASSETTES himself, R. STEVIE MOORE... 1987's 'TEENAGE SPECTACULAR'!


    RSM is a true inspiration and a stone cold legend in both music and cassette culture; releasing over 400 albums on myriad formats, since 1968, establishing the CASSETTE CLUB (a proto-POST/POP!) releasing his albums via mail order, directly to fans (which included massive RSM fan, Ariel Pink) and furthering the appeal of tapes to many.


    The intimacy of the artist, recording an album at home, duplicating it onto a tape, putting that into an envelope and sending it to a fan is as rare as a decent sounding mp3. That connection with the artist adds so many more layers to the music when you are holding a tangible rectangle of hard work and love in your adoring hands. The xmas-like act of opening the case, your first touch of the plastic as you turn the tape to side A, the placing of the tape into a Walkman, the sound of the closing of the door, the click when you press play, the slight hiss as you wait a second for the first song to start, the pulling out of the j-card and unfurling with both sweaty hands, your eyes darting for information across the j-card as you listen to the music, making connections between words and sounds and images and feelings... this is why tapes will never die. This is why bands and artists will always want to emulate something that RSM has been doing since the 60s. If you want to make your music mean something to fans - besides disposable chewing gum pop - you give them all those feelings above, with the knowledge that a true music fan will appreciate that you went to the effort.

    I am very happy that POST/POP has a little part to play in the epic saga that is the musical career of one of the most influential and important musicians in alt-music. All hail R. Stevie Moore!
