During the first years of Staalplaat, Geert Jan Hobijn used the name Staaltape to make a clear distinction between the shop and the label. Many of the artists whose music got released on mc by Staaltape are still around. On the weblog nostalgie de la boue the titles (and download links) are listed. Boys and girls became men and women; staalplaat went on to become an established name within a non established genre. In the last century Staaltape disappeared together with the music cassette.
They are both back again.
The Staaltape releases are (mostly) curated and entirely produced at home by me, Rinus van Alebeek. I also write the entries on this blog.
