Post-Punk, No Wave, Indus & Noise

Thanks to Key Ransone, who sent me a text message the other day, saying that Sudden Infant is mentioned in a french book about Post-Punk, I bought this chronology of some of my favourite records of all time. And yes, holy moly, Sudden Infant is a part of it, alongside with PIL, Swans, The Haters, Whitehouse, John Wiese, The New Blockaders, Butthole Surfers, Godflesh, Merzbow, 23 Skidoo, Coil, Lasse Marhaug and tons of others!
It's all written in french by Philippe Robert, but for those who can slightly understand and read this language, this book is definitely a nice addition for all Industrial-Noise-Punk lovers.

Charles Moneypenny is back!

Charles Moneypenny appeared unexpectedly last Saturday at the Staalplaat Shop in Neuk├Âlln. Some of you saw him already not so long ago, when he first came to Berlin. Now, on his second visit, he told us that he might move to Berlin and buy a flat or a house. Obviously Berlin hast left a strong impression to Mr. Moneypenny especially the lovely people of this city.
His speech covered all breaking news from the London riots to the Royal Wedding to sexuality in music.
We can only be curious when he'll be back with more of his exciting talks!
