I've been called CHAIRMANoftheBORED before, but closed the account by accident. I you have a question concerning my old submissions just drop me a line!

My Steckenpferd is Punk/Hardcore music, but I also like classic Country/Rockabilly, Surf, Garage, Psychedelic, 60s/70s Soul, Funk/Breaks and some Metal as well and sometimes the more laid back electronic stuff.

Music in english and german language is what I prefer to listen to as I understand both quite well.

I collect vinyl only. Usually the true and original very first retail pressing is what I need. Get lost with your with your overpriced bootlegs and cheap looking reissues that I would even prefer an mp3 to. I want a record the artist could have been given by his record company at the day of its release.

In the 1990s I would never have thought that I will gain interest in cd pressings, but the invention of serato brought a whole new aspect to it. And it seems like this has been remastered. The sound comes with a lot more punch than earlier perssing. ... See full review

This record has been bootlegged! There is a similar looking bootleg which lacks in sound quality.

What exactly is the idea behind a 5x7" set?
- It does not sound better
- You have to flip the vinyl after every song
- you can't cut/scratch/mix a 7" especially a 45rpm record properly
- it's expensive

In early 2000 many reissues of the 12"es from the first LP have appeared. Check your 12": It's an original pressing if it has the SRC stamp pressed in the runout grooves and has been distributed by Elektra Entertainment.
