given that no one wants CDR, tapes are the easiest thing to do a short run on cheaply. If you sell a digital copy of something on Bandcamp to someone else in the EU for £5 on the page, bandcamp add VAT and take their cut, so the buyer pays £6 and you get £4.50 of it. if you sell it as merch the buyer gets a free copy of the digital album, the buyer pays £5 plus postage, doesn't get charged VAT and bandcamp don't take a cut on physical sales.
swerving getting inlays printed and doing something handmade (not a problem if you're only doing 20 or so copies) makes it even cheaper.
I have a really hard to try and listen to their new album. I suppose Dylan&Caitlin is pretty good, but there is something lost...they feel kind of bland and unexciting. I suppose it ain't a bad album but maybe Ill give it a proper try later.
I once buried the Morning Glory cassette and a Corinthian figurine of Eric Cantona in a time capsule we did at school. This was around 1997. One day I'll dig the fucker up because I want them both back.
