    Default Man with mortgage and kid unable to throw out rave tapes

    Man with mortgage and kid unable to throw out rave tapes
    14-04-15



    38-YEAR-OLD Tom Booker has decided at keep his rave ‘tape packs’ despite being an adult with responsibilities.



    Booker discovered the cachet of cheaply-manufactured 90s cassette tapes including ‘Top Buzz at Fantazia’ and ‘Ratty and Pilgrim at Universe ’91’ in a cardboard box while clearing out a spare bedroom.


    He said: “There are some classics in here. Great tunes and even the MCs aren’t that annoying.


    “However I no longer have a tape deck and am also under pressure from my wife to make space for a nursery.”


    Booker deliberated while pulling out more of the outsized plastic boxes containing up to 12 tapes each, with shitty cover graphics of things like a woman’s face floating in the sky.


    “I’ve just found ‘Dr S Gachet at Desire ’94’ and I am fucked if that is going to the charity shop.


    “My wife may feel differently but Gachet is a badman and that is 45 minutes of atmospheric drum and bass that needs to be preserved for future generations.


    “I have been focused on family and career but finding these tapes has made me realise that the important things in life are raving and getting off your head.”

    I just had a mental picture of someone in 100 years taking one of these packs into Antiques Roadshow, and listening to the presenter talk about the history, and discuss the quality of these particular sets/events/DJ's & MC's compared to their rivals at the time .

    reads almost exactly the same as when I was clearing out a few years ago, almost 400 CDs and a few hundred tapes to get rid of, or just throw away. The CDs sold well but I thought I'd get pennies for the tapes, nothing sucks more than selling something you regard as valuable for less than the price it costs to post it. out of the blue some guy on ebay offered me slightly more than rrp on the tapes so i shipped the lot to him in one box.
