Teac 4 track Tascam 144 cassette recorder

I recorded ‘Like A Sickle Runs Through Corn’ on a 4 track Tascam 144 cassette recorder – I had bought this in Birmingham – the store fleeced me with excessive repayments – they were expensive bits of kit and a piece of cutting edge technology – in comparison with today’s digital audio world they were positively primitive. This was a massive investment for me and at the time – it was the best available home recording equipment on the market and Finish The Story had two of them.Remember the tascam 144 portastudio 4 track multi-track cassette recorder? http://tinyurl.com/23nlpjt Track released by Beggars Banquet, see Finish The Story track on this 1980’s vinyl release on Discogs.com

In 2007 Cherry Red released a retrospective of The Dancing Did which included some live tracks which I  recorded by chance at Cheltenham College, on one of our Teac 144’s. I was there to record ‘Blurt’ and had some tape over so this unique moment was recorded.

About peter

'Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish.
