I Hear Strange Music

All you have ever wanted to know about the
Hometaping Movement

This is a fan tribute page to those great musicians, labels and artists who changed the world of music forever… An attempt to document the activities of all those small independent record labels who put out so many great tapes, vinyls and compact discs in the eighties and nineties. If you’re searching the web far and wide to get infos about shrimper, union pole, traumatone, bacchanalian revel or sonic enemy, this could be your website. Just click on the labels or artists links at your left to start your journey.

The website is growing in dimensions every day. Label’s discographies are constantly updated, as well as artists’ pages, but a lot of work has to be done yet. It’s fairly incomplete but I’m working on this almost daily…

Please contact me if you used to run one of these labels, if you played in one of these bands, if you had a fanzine, if you were lucky enough to listen to one of these gems, to say hello, to help me or if you’re looking for someone who can take care of your old tapes.

Some of these labels are artists involved are still making music, releasing great records, so please also have a look at the links and news sections.
