Do they except demos?
They all accept demos. Whether they listen to them is another matter!
You can improve your chances by ensuring you design an attractive cassette inlay. Use colourful artwork, and make sure your track titles are clearly typed, not handwritten. If you must use handwritten titles, then ensure you use black ink. But if you don't use blank ink, blue will suffice.
Make sure your contact details are on the cassette as well as the inlay!! You'd be surprised how many busy music supervisors listen to a cassette on the car stereo and go, "wowza! that's some pretty hot music right there!" - only to remove the tape and find there are no contact details on it! A golden opportunity missed!
Some other tips: always ensure your jiffy packet is clearly addreesed, and make sure you address to a specific person, like "Head of A+R". Some witty cartoons or captions on the packet like "please like my music!" - or perhaps an enclosed chocolate bar (who doesn't like chocolate!??!) - will help put the recipient in a good mood.
Best of luck!
