STICK IT IN YOUR EAR! was originally a fanzine-based enterprise that developed organically to encompass a cassette-only label devoted to local Southampton music and a series of musical showcases. SIIYE TAPES' raison d'Ítre: Our aim was to reflect and support the City's diverse music genres, and encourage others to follow our example. Within seven busy years we released some 43 cassette items, but only had a limited success with our later objective.
