MUSIC NEWS: Desire Records bring back the old school in cassette form!

Have you heard of Desire Records? Have you heard of cassettes? How old are you anyway? Yeah like I am just about old enough to remember them - ok, ok I am DEFINETELY old enough, I used them goddammit, for a long time during my childhood in the late 80's early 90's before switching to Minidisc (there's a thought when will they be making a comeback?). 

Anyway, I digress, I just though I'd let you know that Cassettes are still in use people, and there are even labels that are producing brand new music (great underground independent music!) that is available on cassette only.
