'addicted to music' vinyl collector & dealer in moabeat, berlin, germany.

my vinyls / cds / tapes are described in a "conservative grading" way to avoid disappointment. mostly items are in a little better condition. if i see scratches, i put the record / cd on and listen to it. so if i say 'unhearable', it should be correct.
i don't sell any record / cd with hearable damage like cd-jumping or ugly loud vinyl cracks (except when explicitly indicated and described and located). there is a limit to 'lagerfeuer' (campfire-crackling, vinyl wax nostalgia). no CPR (cracks per round). i don't sell crap - i put it in the garbage (so the record / cd gets rare :-)
please feel free to ask any question.

Basically drums and accordion. Strange polkas mostly. Hard to follow their hardcore austrian language, even for me as a german. The tracks with more production/sound are my favourites. Duamasche + Mief are funky powerful hiphop tracks, full of bass, ... See full review

Still a masterpiece in 2017! And i.m.o. the best record Max Goldt ever made. 20 pearls, 5 instrumentals and 15 songs, in german language, spoken or sang over Residents-like sounds and rhythms. The full pleasure of the stories moving from absurd humour to ... See full review

On the labels I read 'Propaganda Vinyl Series 1 Of 4'. Does somebody know what the other three vinyls are? And how to get a chance to listen to them? The label Amontillado seems to have published just this one here.

In the profile they are called a 'Slovenian free punk/funk/jazz band'. That's correct for the first two releases which contain great punky funk-jazz, comparable to Barry Adamson or Pop Group. Later they got more and more into some boring overproduced ... See full review

The early classic of this underrated east german experimental band. Songs with poetic lyrics (in german) and rather weird sound collages dealing with life in the GDR at that time. A well made copy is available through www.majorlabel.de mail order.

ALL instrumentals are wonderful. Cleverly composed minimal electro. B3/B4 is a fine trip. ALL tracks with singing are nonsense. I think 4/10 are using curvy voices. I don't understand.

Great 12" - 4-track!! Future Jazz at it's best! True headz. Very dark sounds, reminding of film scores. Mostly dry beats, deep grooves. Fine sample of 23 Skidoo. B-side is still (9/2017) killing me! Play loud! And at +1-2%.

My favourite solo LP from Mr. Newman. Fantastic songs, great sounds. Newmans exaggerated singing meets the limits.
Like many other remastered records nowadays (2017) the general level is lowered, you have to turn up your volume to get the full sound. ... See full review

Rolling Stones coverversions by more or less alternativ rock bands. Half of the tracks add a fine noisy rocking drive to the songs (Phibes, 3 Imaginary Boys, Family Cat...). The other half are rather free interpretations in a guitar-dominated indie rock ... See full review

Wonderful 12"! All tracks extremely funky and groovy. No 4-to-the-floor stomping. Very percussive and tribal. Jazz samples hearable. Synthesizers sound a bit oldschool in 2017, but that's charming.

Surely one of the fastest guitar players ever. His flowing melodies and chords are faster than light.

Great funky record!
A Getting Up a bit monotone, long and boring.
B1+B2 are wonderful funky grooves, more or less played live.
All tracks should be pitched medium to extremely.
