Welcome to my blog

If you are interested in rediscovered books and literary gems, all things connected to the eighties (politics, art, music), art (and collecting), and music (noise, electronic, ambient and classical), please join the conversation.

I will write (never more often than three times a week, never less than once a month) about all of the above and about stuff grouped as ‘other’, whatever that means.

If you are into Banksy, Arvo Pärt, Bertien van Manen, Stoner, Jan Cremer, Ibiza, Shellac, Rammstein, Kraftwerk, Aphex Twin, Cornelis Vaandrager, Peter Schuyff, Brian Eno and Peteris Vasks, then you will not be disappointed.

Unless you are easily disappointed, then this blog will be yet another disappointment.

Enjoy the ride!
