Prices for all editions (e-book, paperback, hardback) of Mixtape: 1986 are specially discounted for this campaign; after this campaign ends, they will only be available at a higher retail price.

This campaign is to prevent our business folding.
It costs us £1000 per month to stay afloat (insurance, basic wages, website hosting, storage costs).
We broadcast fortnightly live broadcasts via our Facebook page, as part of our Sunday Down The Cellar season. These performances are free to view, but all donations are gratefully received.

Please spare whatever you can to help us to continue what we do, and to keep the arts alive in our own macabre way! Thank you.’ Click the image to go to the fund page.

Happy reading.
