Urban soundsoulsearcher and pop thinker from Cologne

Three questions ...

Favourite quote:

“We learned more from a three-minute record, baby
Than we ever learned in school”

This is how I spend my time:

Memorizing song lyrics, doing radio, rummaging through my vinyl collection and searching for a band as impressive as Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

urbanana is for me...

Nationally under- and internationally highly regarded home of music innovators (Stockhausen, Can, Kraftwerk, NEU!, Conny Plank and many more), secret heart of Neue Deutsche Welle (German new wave), stronghold of indie music, place of inspiration for individualists (Roosevelt, Wahnschaffe, Grandbrothers) and subcultural urban jungle full of pop stories, sound experiments and wall-running dissenters.
