The last time I posted an article in this section … heck, that was almost 2 years ago. Lots has changed since then. One thing that’s very important is that I moved into a new flat and now I finally have space for new records again! Which is why I went on a shopping spree the other day and this is what I found: (more…)

This was something I wanted to do in a long time but never quite had the right chance to set into action. Ever since I heard that there was a new squat I was pretty excited, because things like that don’t happen around here that often anymore. So when at the beginning of this year there was a huge stand-off between the cops and the squatters, which I only followed through Twitter (boy, at times like those these new things really come in handy, don’t they?) I figured that I had to hurry to catch at least a glimpse of that venue. It turned out that squatters were able to reach some form of agreement with the company who owns the building complex and so, if I remember it correctly they will be allowed to stay in the building at least until October. What got me to move my ass over the Rhine was the release show of Cologne’s part-time alcoholics punk/hardcore kings Cobretti, who I hand’t seen in quite some time. (more…)

It felt it had been quite some time since I last had the chance to get out of my everyday grind and just attend a show somewhere. But now that I flip through the entries of this page I am suddenly aware that it hasn’t been as long as I had expected. Only three months? It felt like forever. There are just so many, what I would call, missed chances. Concerts I couldn’t go to, because they took place during the week and my work wouldn’t allow me to be out late. This one however had two reasons why I had to be there. No actually three. First, it was on a Friday evening. Second, my work schedule for the week allowed me to get enough sleep to reallz enjoy this. And third, since my ex-band was playing a hometown show I figured I just had to go. (more…)

Sometimes it’s kind of astonishing how I end up finding out about records. In this case I read about this band in a german newspaper, but what kept me reading wasn’t the review of their records but the fact that they have links to a restaurant in Munich which serves a mixture of japanese and bavarian food.

Sometimes life can play the cruelest tricks on you and in the end you still get away with something you like to remember. In my case I was supposed to fly to Japan on March 14th and we all know why that didn’t materialize as planned. As painful and heartwrenching as it is, I still got some sort of a consolation prize with a ticket for the Mogwai show which was set to take place in Cologne on the exact same date. (more…)

To be honest, I only went to this one because there was nothing else to do on a Friday evening and I really wanted to see a show. The concept was interesting as well because Club Scheisse/Aetherblissement and the Sonic Ballroom teamed up for this concert with the first to bands playing at the Club Scheisse and the main act finishing thjings of right next door at the Ballroom.

It’s been quite a while since I had some time to go out to a show and I figure I only got my ass off the couch this evening because I had two weeks of holiday and that’s always a good sign that I had a lot of time to relax and recharge my batteries. Also I wanted to at least show up at the “Club Scheisse/Aetherblissement”, a very nice and cool venue, one of the last in Cologne which still have this semi-legal/squat feel to it. (more…)
