Isle of Wight band uses wind power to make music

A band from the Isle of Wight has come up with a unique way to record and play music.

The Cassette Recorders set up a wind turbine to collect power for the barn in which they recorded their debut album Dance Music for Drunk People.

According to the Isle of Wight County Press, the island trio also have solar power panels fitted to their laptops so they can collect renewable energy while working on tracks outside.

Band member Adrian Coles, who goes by the stage name of Fast Forward, stated that the group is all for the use of clean power and spent just £400 on the wind turbine as Martin Naylor (Rewind) studies renewable energy at university.

"We are all different generations but we met through a love of electronic music," said Coles.

Visitors to the island can see the group's debut live show at The Studio in Newport, which recently reopened after a change of management, on November 20th 2010.
