A cassette released by the Tokyo folk duo Tenniscoats on the Australian experimental label room2023 in September 9.

Recorded live in Tasmania, Australia in February 2009.

*If you would like a digital sound source, please feel free to contact us.

Below is an explanation by label owner Lawrence English.

In preparation for the 15th anniversary reissue of Totemo Aimasho, I spent several days digging deep into the room40 archives.I have a huge collection of material over the years, but I honestly don't remember much of it exactly.

Meanwhile, I came across this recording.

Tasmania Bootleg was recorded on Sunday 2009th February 2 at the Brisbane Hotel in Hobart.I visited Hobart quite some time ago, and my email chain at the time speaks for itself.

I invited Tenniscoats to Australia to celebrate the finale of Fabrik Shear, which I was curating at Brisbane Powerhouse.When other tour dates were announced, some people in Hobart contacted us and before we knew it we were on our way to Hobart.

As part of our visit to Hobart, we recorded a series of recordings in the same 'field recording' style as we had produced Temporacha in Tokyo the previous year.We also had the opportunity to record a show at the Brisbane Hotel.

This recording is 100% bootleg territory.To be honest, I'm a big fan of this recording style.I was a big cassette trader in my teens, and the quality of the duplicate bootlegs I was listening to at the time made me interested in texture and noise.

This recording, made in the audience by a friendly local, perfectly captures the atmosphere surrounding Tenniscoats during this period.You can literally see the audience completely mesmerized by Saya and Ueno's performance.It was an honor to play with them on this show.I haven't talked much about it, but I started my musical career as a drummer.

Also included in this edition is a digital phone book containing photographs taken in Tasmania. "

Text by Lawrence English from Room40:

"When I was preparing the 15th anniversary re-issue of Totemo Aimasho I spent a few days doing a deep dive through the room40 archive. There's a hell of a lot of material that has been collected over the years, and the truth be told I don 't exactly remember a lot of it.

About a day into this search, I came across this recording.

Tasmania Bootleg was recorded on Sunday the 15th of February 2009, at The Brisbane Hotel in Hobart. The visit to Hobart came about pretty last minute, so my email chain from the time seems to suggest.

I'd invited Tenniscoats down to Australia to help celebrate the finale of the Fabrique seres I was curating at Brisbane Powerhouse. Some folks from Hobart reached out once the other tour dates were announced and then before we knew it, we were headed there.

As part of the Hobart visit we recorded a suite of material using the same 'field recording' style we used to create Temporacha in Tokyo the previous year.

This recording is 100% bootleg territory. I must confess to being a huge fan of this style of recording. I was an enormous cassette trader back in my teen years and I put down a lot of my interests in texture and noise to the quality of duplicated bootlegs I listened to back then.

This recording was made in the audience by a friendly local and is an entirely faithful capture of the atmosphere that surrounded Tenniscoats during this time. You can literally hear the audience becoming completely entranced by Saya and Ueno's performance. I was honored to play alongside them for this show. It's not something I talk about much, but my first life in music was as a drummer and a flicker of that life is captured here.

The edition also comes with a digital phonebook, containing photos in 110 and other formats, that were captured in Tasmania during that time."
