It is a long time since I last updated my blog. As you may have read in my last posts, I have a new job now. After a lot of moving several times, I finally have an appartment since December. By the end of January I finally had access to the internet again. Unfortunately, I do not have much time left for the blog as the new job is rather time consuming. Nevertheless I prefer it this way than not having a job and too much time.
While I was already at my new place some ruthless bastards broke into my old flat and besides other valuable things as my Teddy bear, they stole most of my CDs, many originals from the 80s. Impossible to get them back (and my Teddy). More than 1000 are misssing, only about 200 are left, some were in the top shelves they could not reach, some newer ones in drawers (from my trip to USA + Canada in 2004) and the ones I had next to my computer like thankfully the Indie Scene compilations are still in my possession. The record collection was left untouched (almost) completely. Probably they did not know what to do with them. Nevertheless they took some box sets (the Palatine 4 CD box!). Very lazy and stupid thieves! Therfore the reference to 'To catch a thief' with the divine Grace Kelly and Cary Grant. I think I know who did it but unfortunately I have no proof. Therefore the Police will not search their premises.
I am still in the process of setting up my new home. Some moving boxes are still untouched. At least I have the PC working and since last weekend the Stereo is set up finally. These bastards also stole my Audioplay Charly speakers I bought in 83. They were unique as they were round cardboard tubes with a 12" woofer on top. See left.
I will try to get my stuff sorted so I can post more music in future. With regard to the current situation it may take a while till you find new posts here. I will try to get hold of old records to post here again! Possibly the Sarah project might be the next step. The singles were not stolen thankfully.
I do hope you will still be satisfied with my blog!
Thieves of different kinds (several songs with thieves, any more suggestions are welcome!)
