The music styles on those compilations are very different!!!Patrick was accepting any kind of music!!!The most is experimental electronics but from time to time you`ll find also some weird folk or punk or art rock,there is really a bit of everything in those tapes.
They are crafted with colour paper covers and a copy insert with song-titles and addresses of the bands/artists.
Excellent tapes for people into very underground music from the past.
