Roel Smit part 2

Roel and I live on different planets; I haven’t played a punk record in years.
In the piles of artwork, I also found letters, original drawings and photocopies of illustrations that did not end up in the book. Here are some of the private cards that he made over the years:

Unfortunately the cassettes have died long time ago. But you reconstruct them if you like, because Roel always wrote all the info on the labels.
Here is the band Raped with a song that was not on one of the tape that i got from Roel:
