The ‘Blank Tape Spillage Fete’ is a project set up by Matt Hunt and Mat Fowler.
The Mats have been friends since Art School, and after a long hiatus got together to start making and recording music in 2004. An evening a week in Mat Fowler’s damp North London cellar was made sacred and the four-track recording sessions began. After futile attempts at coming up with a name for themselves they finally agreed on the ‘Blank Tapes’ but google soon put paid to that by way of a band with the same name. But the damage was done and a song had already been recorded referencing the short lived ‘Blank Tapes’. So the band name was scrapped and instead the name became the inspiration for something else….
