Back to the 1980s: IMIXID cassette tape player

C2
Last month we saw another Cassette Store Day, further proof that the format, while not what it was, is certainly not dead yet. Indeed, a number of hip indie labels are producing music both for this day and throughout the year. If you want some of that, or just fancy rediscovering your old ‘tapes’, you might be interested in the IMIXID cassette tape player.

Chh Beep Click Print by Charlotte Farmer from Found Bath

Farmer chh

This Chh Beep Click print isn't the first time Charlotte Farmer has teamed up with Found Bath – you may remember her festive Rock N Roll Christmas range. That collaboration – showing rock n roll stars alongside now redundant technology - was apparently the inspiration for this print. The redundant technology in this case is the Walkman, a desirable piece of kit in the 1980s. 

The image captures the chunky delights of the walkman, complete with the buttons that made the sounds that have given their title to the print. The print has been created using a mixture of screen-printing and embossing to create an unusual and tactile texture to the print. 

If you like the look of this, you're advised to snap it up now. It's part of a closed edition of just 10 prints. 

The print costs £95.

Lunch Man – vintage Walkman-shaped lunch box

Lunchman

I think, in this case, the image of the Lunch Man says it all.

Yes, it's a lunch box, shaped like a 1980s Walkman, so you get to keep your sandwiches in one piece whilst looking cool in an gadget geek kinda way.

It's made of plastic, it's sized at 18 x 14 x 5.5cm and the Lunch Man is available online for just £6.
