Cassette-only UK label The Tapeworm has begun a new venture, and no, it’s not a non-cassette music media format addition. It’s books! Books are like cassettes in that they are being replaced by digital formats, but lo, Tapeworm is here to rescue yet another dated source from obsoletion!
The book imprint, henceforth to be known as The Bookworm, has released its first publication, titled The Art of Worms. The book features an essay by Ken Hollings (Destroy All Monsters, Welcome to Mars), “Parasitic Infestation” and illustrations from the first 25 Tapeworm tapes.
According to Bookworm, other future publications are currently being penned by writer/poet/ex-model/”Grandmother Of Trip-Hop” Leslie Winer and graphic designer Chris Bigg (4AD, David Sylvian).
