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...
And in contemporary avantgarde jazz and strange experimental sounds that probably most people wouldn't even consider to be "music".
In 2016 I re-ignited my cassette label Graf Haufen Tapes and occasionally re-release some of my old tapes (properly re-mastered and extended) and also stuff that was never released before. This is done in collaboration with Mauerstadtmusik. In December 2017 the first release on the new label Bandscheiben that I'm running with Thomas Pargmann (of Mauerstadtmusik) will be available on vinyl.

Constant change... constant expansion of the musical spectrum...

Music will always be my first love, but I love films and documentaries too.

I own and operate a video and dvd rental store for unusual and aquired taste for the last 34 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?
