Your Memory Tapes this week is a tale of boy meets girl, boy makes mix tape, gets girl interested in indie music; it's a well trodden path...


This particular story belongs to Carly Henry who writes....


"It was made for me by an ex boyfriend way back in 1990, when I was a mere 15 year old girl.


"I had just started getting into indie music, having been introduced to The Sugarcubes by my third cousin. And so when I started going out with David who was three years older than me, he made me a tape of the kind of stuff that he was listening to at the time.


"I still have the tape which is so geniusly named 'Various Artists' although side A is named 'Various Groove Mix' and side B is named 'Various Super Bonus Mix'"


Here's what the tape looks like:
