STILL ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everybody!

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!
Here are some songs with a reference to thieves! Unfortunately The Thief of Baghdad is not included yet.

Thieves of different kinds (several songs with thieves, any more suggestions are welcome!)

Hi, hab mich grade quer durch Deinen Blog gelesen, viel Interessantes, eine Menge Erinnerungen an meine spätes Sounds/frühe Spex-Phase.

Danke für die guten und persönlichen Anmerkungen zur Musik. Mach weiter so, ich schau immer mal wieder rein.

Back online!

Schön, dass du wieder da bist! Wenn ich Dir irgendwie helfen kann, deine musikalischen Verluste in digitaler Form wieder zu beschaffen, lass es mich wissen.
Bei mir wären die CDs weniger das Problem, weil nicht ganz so viele Raritäten dabei sind, aber die LPs - o Graus. Aber die sind Dir ja glücklicherweise auch geblieben!

Meld Dich also, wenn Du irgendwas suchst, ich helfe suchen!

Hallo Likedeeler!

Danke für das Angebot! Die meisten der CDs werde ich aber wohl selbst digital nicht wiedersehen. Ich hatte über die Jahre eine Sammlung von CDs aufgebaut, die zum Einen aus unhörbaren Raritäten bestand, aber auch aus CDs, mit denen jede Party zu rocken war (ohne Rock!)

Vieles original aus den 80ern + 90ern. Warp - Pioneers of the hypnotic Groove fällt mir gerade ein und die ganzen anderen Warp CDs. Thirteen Moons natürlich, die hab ich aber zumindest noch auf HD. Marc Almond, Marc & the Mambas,80er HipHop Schooly D, Bambaata, etliche Material/Bill Laswell/Axiom CDs, jede Menge Sampler mit 12" Versionen. Ich könnte stundenlang weitermachen.

Digital ist zwar ok, aber nicht besser. Beim Sammeln geht's eben auch um das Haben. Auch bei den LPs ist viel, was ich nur einmal angehört habe, aber trotzdem nicht weggeben würde.
