Epitaph - Debut Album - Cover Art - 1971

25/7/17 – Epitaph – 1st Album – 1971 / Early Morning – 1972

The other day in Frankfurt at Mythos Records, Thomas made me buy the first Epitaph album. I found myself agreeing without thinking too hard about it. It wasn’t that cheap, wasn’t in the greatest condition and I didn’t know the album. Of course later I discovered that even a bit scratchy this was a bargain […]

Guru Guru - Hinten - Cover Art - 1971

24/7/17 – Guru Guru – Hinten / Electric Junk – 1971

This is my last week in Germany where in my mind it’s 1971 and Guru Guru have just released their second album, Hinten. Then I realize that time somehow made it to 2017 and some of us are still enthusiastically listening to these mad, brilliant German freak out albums of the early seventies.  Electric Junk […]

YES CTTE 72

13/7/17 – Yes – And You And I – 1972 / Close To The Edge – 1972 / Fragile – 1971 / The Yes Album – 1971

Tomorrow, Olivia and I will head off to the Night Of The Prog festival at Loreley in Germany, a festival that she hosts and will include Prog Rock giants Yes. It took me years to see Yes even though I had their records in the seventies. I eventually saw them at Sydney Entertainment centre sometime […]

Beethoven Conducting

11/7/17 – Natalie Schwamova – Beethoven – Rondo e capriccio op.129 – Rage Over The Lost Penny / Morrissey – Jack The Ripper From Beethoven Was Deaf – 1993

From Berlin to Frankfurt and today venturing into Bonn to pick up Olivia’s violin from the repair shop. It rained (again) and driving and then walking through the streets of this city, I notice a rather large leaning towards Classical Music. It is of course the birthplace of Beethoven and the deathplace of Robert Schumann […]

CD Mountain

9/8/17 – The Indestructible CD – 1981 / David Bowie – The Man Who Sold The World – Saturday Night Live – 1979 / Lulu – The Man Who Sold The World – 1974 / Abba Interview On The Visitors – 1982

Somehow lost in the 1500 word epic Frankfurt trip post, floundering at the bottom of the page, stuck in the honey, drowned in the coffee, scratched by the stone, the alien metallic disc, indestructible, stretches out beyond immortality, surviving the human race, rising from the ashes long, long, long after you are gone. If you […]
