Like modern day archeology, from the depths of our shared heritage some copies of various tape runs resurfaced, all untouched and still in their original package.
The tapes were dubbed and assembled at home, all are chrome quality.
The tapes are available at the Underbelly distro in Rotterdam, also on-line.

raw poetry, raw street recordings, raw cuts, lo-fi recorder, re-used commercial tape, sci-fi images, it all blends together in a 2×15 minutes mix. Beautiful? Let’s write that word on the mirror for other people to forget. This tape is not about beauty. This tape is full of scars. Let’s hope they don’t hurt anymore. But if they do, then please come in and listen. You might forget about the pain for a little while.
