Vinyl reissue of DIY tape crusader Daniel Johnson's 1983 albums 'Hi How Are You', 'Yip' and 'Jump Music', recorded in his brother's garage, probably in the midst of a nervous breakdown and in and out of a psychiatric unit.
Johnson would hand-draw each cassette tape's covers and give them out to people.
You might have seen Kurt Cobain wearing a T-Shirt with the cover to 'Hi How Are You' on it, turns out British writer Everett True gave it to him and the rest is history, along with many other bands covering Jonhson's work and it popping up all over popular culture.
