ARZATHON-Bouncin` Off Reality-(graphix art work)+RODENT TAPES-(tape label-UK-90s to present)

After posting Gina Fear and Gypsy tape I got in touch with Gypsy aka Ralf 'gypsy' Bevis,the mind behind Rodent Tapes a very good  old label yet very active now days producing mainly his music and  all his collaborations.So This is an unreleased graphic work for one of his many albums and here I am attaching what he wrote on one of his many web-pages.

 An original and complex audio sculpted psychedelic project founded during the 80s by Ralf 'gypsy' Bevis. Some pieces are heavily influenced by early krautrock infectious grooves but the whole musical signature consists of audio sculpted psychedelic electronic epics covered by harmonized acid rockin dynamics. Largely improvised and dangerously lysergic sounding experience.
Born in Germany in the 4th month of the year 1959. Father R.A.F Have lived in England, Germany, Holland, Africa, France and Sweden. At the moment I reside in the united kingdom for my sins. British by passport, earthling by nature. Not a musician in the true sense of the word, concider myself an audio sculptor. Williams Burroughs cutup method of writing is something I've brought to my soundscapes, always in the search of expressing myself in different ways useing sound as a paintbox...It's said that my music has at times a mystical quality taking the listener on a journey to the centers of relaxation. I'm a strong believer that music/sound can have healing qualities. This belief that we in the west need to stop blindly following politicians/corporations, that the paths of wealth, power and greed do not end in a happy place is something I try to get across in my art. My solo albums are produced and engineered by myself..the covers are also designed by me...no corporation behind Rodent Tapes....sponsored by life...Collaborations are usually co-produced and engineered by the artist (s) I'm collaborating with..."
