Underground Music Museum is curated by Bryan Baker of GAJOOB Magazine, Cassette Culture Shock Radio, HomemadeMusic.com, Tapegerm and more. My goal is to document, catalog and present a large library of music and related material: thousands of cassette, CDR and other albums independently made and distributed around the world by artists with often singular visions and consuming passions, along with related correspondence and other material. And an exit through the gift shop, just for fun.

    Stephen was the first artist to respond to GAJOOB’s call for submissions to the Discussions CD project. I’m afraid this contirbution was the extent of Smith’s work appearing in GAJOOB. See Stephen George Smith on Apple Music

    Tom Furgas

    P00474 Tom Furgas’ 1986 Courtesy Patrol cassette with Bill Lehman called Razor Clocks was one of my earliest exposures to cassette culture and resonated with my own style of music most among the first tapes I ordered. Tom was the first cassette culture artist I interviewed.

  • Wendy S. Duke

    Wendy published Dumpster Times, an anarchist zine out of Akron, Ohio. She went on to teach drama and establish a theatre program for people on the autism spectrum, among many things.
