♫♪  Tabs Out: Laser Focus #1 - Headboggle

Tabs Out is an all-cassette podcast that’s been documenting the prolific tape underground with joyful obsession and humorous expertise since 2012. Tiny Mix Tapes has teamed with Tabs Out for a show called Laser Focus, in which tape aficionados/fetishists Mike Haley, Dave Doyen, and Joe B hone in on a specific label or artist. Check out the archive here.

On the inaugural episode of Laser Focus, Tabs Out talks with Headboggle about his Krautrock past, collaborating with his father, and setting up synthesizers on his bed. We also play a sampling of HB cassettes on Baked, Hyperdelic, Excitebike, A Soundesign Recording, and Tusco/Embassy.
