I've still got boxes of tapes from bands that I need to send somewhere. A musical library, any ideas?
Most of these demo tapes are priceless and no price would anyone offer either, but the Deadbeat tapes did try and give a flavour of what came through our post box and many of the bands I never even met. As time went by I would spend more time on the 'next tape' and DB4 was the only thing keeping the fanzine thought going in my head in 1986. DB2 came out in the summer of 1984 and DB3 spring of 1985. We never made DB4, funny how tinnitus got in the way!
