Cracker Jack Kid - Art Strike Mantra
Cracker Jack Kid ( Chuck Welch ) sent out these cassettes through the mail art network back in the late 80's as part of the infamous Mail Art Strike. The idea was that participants added their mantra or whatever they wanted basically to the end of the tape and sent it on to the next person until the tape was full and the last person sent it back to Chuck to copy and send copies to all participants - at least I think that was the idea. I made my own copy just in case this one got lost or for some reason I never got one. A compilation did eventually turn up along with documentation of the project. Hear part of it HERE.
