Best Source for a Cassette Tape of Your Favorite Band

GGNZLA Records

My car—a mid-'90s Camry with 197,000 miles on it (God love her)—was broken into recently. Every item of value was stolen: my leather jacket, my...OK, that was it. What was left not-so-neatly in place was my collection of cassette tapes, the crown jewel being an Elvis Costello compendium. I explained this recently to t.v. Coahran, owner of the underground label GGNZLA Records, which issues its own material on cassette, as well as select recordings from Sub Pop subsidiary Hardly Art, and who carries a box of them to shows. I asked Coahran, "What does this say about your product that people won't even steal them?" His response: "I guess the kind of people who break into cars don't listen to cassettes." If you're not the type to break into cars, and want to enjoy your music in a medium more portable than an LP and infinitely cooler than an mp3, Coahran is your guy with a box of what you need. —Chris Kornelis www.ggnzla.com
