Forced Nostalgia

Another gorgeous day. Did the Houhai thing: boating on the Lake (girls steering, me & Dominic pedaling); lunch at Hutong Pizza; Bell Tower; tea ceremony... Touristy, but such a nice day that I didn't begrudge it at all.  
Email from Frank Maier who runs Vinyl On Demand, frothing at the bit re the forthcoming MFH compilation and waxing lyrical & nostalgically about YHR's contribution to cassette culture. And following on from that, an email from Maurizio Bianchi, 'noise musician' from Milan, whose very early tapes were released on YHR in 1980. It's the first time we've been in touch for over 30 years. Interesting times...
