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.

Dumpster Times #7

GAJOOB Archive #4560

AudioAnarchy is the first cassette version of my print zine DumpsterTimes. I asked for contributions from some friends and this is what they tossed into the Dumpster. My own work on the tape reflects my love of improvisational theatre. Everything not attributed to a spe­cific text was improvised. This was my first time playing with a 4-track, and thanks to Dave Schall for production help!

Wendy S. Duke, submission notes

I’d like to hear more tapes like this one. Like Wendy Duke says this Is a cassette version of her anarchist ztne. The tape starts off with a couple people interviewing passersby at the Anti-Art Festival In Cleveland. Most people seemed to be looking for unique entertalnment and most disagreed with the principles of the Art Strike. The loose feel in these interviews is maintained throughout this tape with a few songs, some poetry and whatnot readings (most notably from Paul Weinman who gives his ever-present work a whole new feel) and audio “theater.” There’s a lot of humor here. One presents us a panel show discussion on the word, “Fuck,” and how to use it properly. Having done that, they give us the radio-playable version. Recommended.
