De La Soul - 3 Feet High and Rising (1989, Tommy Boy) 🌼🎂🌼 Wishing one hell of a game changer for music a very happy 30th birthday! 🌼🎂🌼 De La Soul’s debut album was released 30 years today; 3rd March 1989. One of my favourite albums of any genre, and one of the first rap tapes I bought. Absolute classic! ❤️ #delasoul #tommyboy #3feethighandrising #potholesinmylawn #themagicnumber #eyeknow #memyselfandi #80srap #80shiphop #hiphop #rap #album #tape #cassette #cassettetape #cassetteculture @wearedelasoul

Sleater-Kinney - The Hot Rock (1999, Kill Rock Stars) 🎂 A very happy 20th birthday today to Sleater-Kinney’s fourth album, The Hot Rock. Released on 23rd February 1999 by the great Kill Rock Stars. I remember getting this when it came out and remarking on the darker somewhat more sad tone than Dig Me Out, their previous album. I love this album, and is one of my favourite of theirs! ❤️ Happy birthday to The Hot Rock! 🎂 #sleaterkinney #thehotrock #killrockstars #riotgrrrl #punkrock #record #recordcollection #90s #90spunkrock #vinyl @sleater_kinney

Peter Hoggarth - Broken Hearts at the Bongo Breakers Yard (2018, Third Kind Records) ———— The perfect Sunday vibes courtesy of Brighton’s Peter Hoggarth! Folk music with a somewhat tragic twist to it. Absolutely beautiful music. #peterhoggarth #thirdkindrecords #folk #cassettetape #cassettetapes #tape #cassetteculture #folkmusic

The place which grounds me... South Downs. We wander into the mist!

A super nice treat turned up in the post from America today! From one of my favourite podcasts, named after one of my favourite albums: @digmeoutpodcast Thanks! You’re unbelievable!!! (Excuse the EMF pun!) #digmeout #digmeoutpodcast #podcast #emf

Sleater-Kinney - No Cities to Love (2015, Sub Pop Records). S-K released their eighth album on this day four years ago! 20th January 2015! 🎂 Happy fourth birthday to my daughters favourite album! 🎈She has loved this since she was three years old and would ask to play the album over and over again! Now she’s old enough to put the record on herself (though I frighten myself each time, scared of where the record needle will end up)! Thank you Sleater-Kinney. Can’t wait until the new album!!!!! #sleaterkinney @sleater_kinney #nocitiestolove #subpop #subpoprecords #riotgrrrl #punkrock #record #recordcollection #vinyl

One of my favourite mid 90’s hardcore punk 7”s was from this Swedish band. They also released a tape and had a few compilation appearances in the 90’s. A very short lived band. Members went on to play in Unison and Division of Laura Lee! #starttoday #straightedge #90shardcore #hardcorepunk #svenskhardcorekultur

2018. I barely post on Instagram any more, but here you go... thank you 2018! ....the top nine!!! 😉

A forgotten treasure.... Lack t-shirt circa 2003 (???)
Bought at one of the numerous times I saw them perform in Copenhagen. With Barra Head, at the Studenterhuset maybe, in the centre of town. Back when I’d buy size small t-shirts! Ha #lack #ktownhardcore #deadchildrenshouldhauntyoursleep

Clutch -
Transnational Speedway League: Anthems, Anecdotes and Undeniable Truths (1993, EastWest Records) —- An unbelievable twenty five years of this classic debut album from Maryland rock band Clutch. —- Released on 17th August 1993, this was when Clutch were still angry! I remember buying this shortly after it was released on Brighton’s Western Road, getting home and playing it far too loud, or that’s how it felt! It’s a shame that this never got the vinyl treatment it deserves. Jam packed with Clutch fan favourites and classics. #clutch #transnationalspeedwayleague #transnationalspeedwayleagueanthemsanecdotesandundeniabletruths #eastwestrecords #hardcorepunk #stoner #stonerrock #90smetal #ashogunnamedmarcus #eljefespeaks #bingeandpurge #12ounceepilogue #bacchanal #milkofhumankindness #rats #earthworm #heirloom13 #walkinginthegreatshiningpathofmonstertrucks #effigy #90srock #cd #cdcollection

EQ-Why - Life of the Why (The Mixtape Volume One) (2018, Third Kind Records). Brand new release from my favourite tape label; Brighton’s Third Kind Records. Their 35th release in fact. Something a little different this time - a C60 style mixtape cassette from Chicago’s EQ-Why. It’s full of 90’s hip-hop classics, wonderful 70’s soul, energetic jungle and much much more! Featuring reversible art, I love releases that feature that. One cover being a homage to 90’s rap tapes (I absolute love the green) and the other is a painting by artist Matt Lloyd. A definite treat for fans of the Chicago footwork genre! Thank you @nicholas_langley @eqwhy #eqwhy #footwork #chicagofootwork #rap #soul #hiphop #90srap #90shiphop #mixtape #cassette #cassettetapes #cassettetape #C60 #thirdkindrecords
