The OOMK ladies are looking for mixtapes for their upcoming fundraiser so get your stickers and sharpies and double tape deck out!
1. Make a mixtape. Cassette only please.
2. Clearly label it with a track listing.

Tape Party! Whoop Whoop!
Very good friend of Editions of You, Lady Neptune is launching her new tape alongside Joey Fourr on April 1st. Check out all the details HERE and see you there London peeps…
So how about this for a deal - with every purchase of an Eyeless Records release you get the album Crushertrank by David K Frampton free? Yes, we think it is a good idea too.
Ahoy! New mermaid anthology in sight!
From editorsLaura Seymour & Kirsten Tambling this full-colour, 52-page anthology is an absolutely gorgeous thing, and we loved how many different types of work and creators have been included. In their own words…
“LINES UNDERWATER is a mermaid anthology exploring mermaid myths in the modern world and creating new ones. Featuring artworks, writing and audio from over 40 contributors, here are tales of botched cosmetic surgery, 1950s glamour girls, mermaid chairs and singing sirens, postcards from Jenny Hanivers and memories of love affairs in the navy.” (2013)
New stock from Sebastian Melmoth!
So straight from one of the other artists I met at the OOMK fair, we have some new tapes and 7” vinyl from Sebastian Melmoth. They have a new cassette available via their bandcamp right now, and coming to Editions of You soon too.
I’m pleased to say OOMK organized Comic & Zine Fair was an amazing success! I had a great time eating lush cakes from their open kitchen all day, caught up with some old friends and made some new ones. And most exciting … I was not the only stallholder selling or specializing music there! Yay! I met some lovely folks and bought some amazing cassettes.
If you don’t know about them already then check out Extra Bones (SE London Collective who curate arts events, projects, workshops, live music, publishing and sell all sorts of zines, books, prints, tees and more - all made by independent artists) and Crumb Cabin (a place for cassettes and small press zines, some of which include a unique download code to access new music releases, they also periodically hold live nights in Dalston where they bring along their cassette/zine distro).

IN STOCK - NX Records Crossing Lines
Launched in the summer of 2013 NX Records, a collaborative independent label from Matthew Herbert’s Accidental and Goldsmiths, University of London, has already produced a flurry of creative activity to justify the media and industry buzz. Student run, this their first physical release is an eclectic selection showcasing a variety of alumni work. I’m particularly excited to see this wonderful release come to fruition - I have taught all the students at some point and John Oyster and I designed the packaging between us. John made the beautiful collaged alternative map of New Cross and I came up with the labour intensive wrap (of course!) Watch the video for a closer look…
