Due to the serious allegations surrounding Burger Records and the Covid-19 pandemic, Cassette Store Day (CSD) 2020, has been cancelled. You can see the official statement here from CSD UK https://cassettestoredayuk.com. We at Tapehead City have no affiliation with Burger Records and stand in unison with the survivors. Tapehead City will not carry releases from such bands nor restock releases from labels that promote them. Profits from our remaining Burger Record titles will be donated to RAINN.
but here is some good news.... we are here to "save the empire!".
Cassette Store Day was not started by Burger Records, They only helped organize the North American branch, and celebrating the format of cassettes has nothing to do with Burger Records.
Tapehead City wants to provide a way to connect record stores with labels that were planning CSD releases this year. We spoke with CSD UK, and they gave us their blessing to do so. They have only asked that the "Cassette Store Day" name and branding is not used this year. We want to respect their wishes. We will be promoting the releases under "#cassetteweek2020" [OCT 11th-17th] on our social media platforms.
We know how much this day means to many of you. 2020 has taken so much from us, but we can't let it take this. We need new music in our lives more than ever and we need to connect in fun and positive ways more than ever. And we need new tapes in our collection! Looking forward to seeing all the exciting releases come to fruition this year. Tapes Not Dead!
