A little blurb about myself:
I discovered punk when I was 13, startet my own tape label (Graf Haufen Tapes) when I was 14, releasing music of my own and friends. In 1981 I started publishing "Die Katastrophe", the first tape-review fanzine of Germany. Later I also distributed other peoples tapes and expanded the label rooster internationally. In 1982 my musical tapes shifted more towards experimental music, noise and hardcore electronics. It all came to an end in 1985, when I stopped my label and turned more towards visual art, opening an apartment gallery and working with a professional gallery for two years.
In 1987 I turned towards electronic dance music, with Hip House and Acid developing. Techno, house and ambient became my main diet for the next 12 years. I co-owned a techno/electronic dance music store in Berlin for a few years until it went bankrupt, always providing me with the best the genre had to offer.
As I always listened to various other genre of music (apart from mainstream - that never interested me), I developed a fondness for bar jazz and exotica in the later 1990s. Singer-/Songwriter and intelligent indie pop and rock music are a huge part of my collection too.
After attending concerts by Earth and later Sunn O))) a new door was opened for me.
Doom, black metal, white metal, sludge, screamo and a lot of experimental music gave me new kicks.
Currently I'm very much again into weird stuff from the 1970s and 1980s, esp. released on tape...
Constant change... constant expansion...

Music will always be my first love.
I own and operate a video and dvd rental store for unusual and aquired taste for the last 30 years. Mostly I work the office, so I basically listen to music while I'm working for at least 12 hours a day.
I'm always hungry for more...
Will it ever stop?

This also sounds great played at 33rpm - I actually prefer it that way. Like a vocal-less version of Esplendor Geometrico in later years. Great industrial noise-techno...

I like the music, but it is just my pressing that crackles like crazy - SERIOUSLY deminishing the pleasure derived from the tunes? Or is that a general problem?

If you like the sonic harvoc of Black Pus or Lightning Bolt you will surely also love this release. Very energetic and free in its form - this is more about intensity then regular musical structures generally associated with "songs". There is ... See full review

Phantastic release, very driven and noisy post-/math-rock when the genres were not even invented, mixed with light free jazz elements by Jo Makino's saxophone - makes for a brilliant 60 minute ride. Why did Tibeta Ubik remain so unknown? They were way ... See full review

A great concert, but sadly this was only released in a CDr. That means it is bound to deteriorate over time (as are most if not all CDrs). Bought mine when it came out and have played is more or less regularily since. Tried again today to rip it for ... See full review

This is sad and very funny at the same time.
Sad because whoever did this is obviously a right wing nutter, but funny, because he has no talent at all when it comes to singing, which makes this even more pathetic and convoluted. Right wing techno is a ... See full review
