On a day on which summer came back to the city for one last time what better way to spend the evening than with a small open air show at Cologne’s squat area Bauwagenplatz. Cobretti called and all of their friends followed. Cobretti have been around for a long time now hailing from the “other” side of the river locals use to call “Schäl Sick”, which can hardly be translated but means something like “weird”. (more…)

I usually buy records because of one or two tracks on it I really like. Sometimes it’s a song I heard the band play live, sometimes it’s something I listened to on our local college radio station. But very seldomly a record stuns me for the full time it’s playing on my turntable. Now I don’t own a vast amount of records, but still I think it can be considered enough to call it a “collection”. And all those “pretentious assholes” like me know that you can’t listen to your entire collection all the time, so you pick out certain songs from certain records. So it’s pretty unusual that I listen to a record constantly for a long period of time. But that’s exactly what happened with this gem.

This show flew a little bit under the radar as I only learned about it a few weeks ago. It has been quite some time since Neurosis went on some sort of a tour in Europe so the expectations were quite enormous. Previously the only chance to catch a glimpse of their live shows was at festivals or exclusive shows in the U.K. and I know quite a few people who especially went to those shows. (more…)

So this is it, this year’s tournament is finally over and the end of it wasn’t the high class game one would expect for a final of a competition. Well, at least the neutral spectator would expect a slightly closer competiton. But this is high school baseball, things like this happen. I wonder if this was the highest scoring win in the final in Koushien history. (more…)

So there we have it: the final of this year’s Summer Koushien tournament is just around the corner. And both semifinal games seemed to have been not as close as some other games this year. In fact the turnout was the same on both occasions. Identical results, although the runs were scored in different inning (duh!). Goro Shigeno of the 高校野球 Blog spoils us with the stats of the Best of 4 teams and it’s interesting to see that the teams who reached the final used their pitchers very differently. (more…)
