Rückblick 2017

Posted in Musik Department Berlin, Musik für alle with tags , , , , , , , on 31. Dezember 2017 by Musik Department

2017, a fast and perceptively year. The ongoing medial coverage, about an assumed renaissance of vinyl culture is the big misunderstanding between apparenty interest and the daily hard life of a store owner. The growth rate concerns online sales, less the analog existence without web store, discogs business, …

The new enthusiasm about vinyl or vinyl culture is simply an appearance and less a reliable movement. A simple example on not reliable rapture showed the Berlin based RadioEins on a video, produced for the “vinyl day“ on their channel. Be stunned here

Therefore, here a few notes about our daily business, light spots and alienations.

main challenge of the year:
the new quality on perception that means the dislike to spot something. Curiosity is slowly dying, spontaneity already disappered. In other words decorators versus music lovers.

realization of the year:

tons of releases. Mean is the new spearhead

positive surprise of the year:

King Krule, The Ooz


reissue label of the year: Habibi Funk



wrong stock of the year:
customer: do you have bird sounds on vinyl?
we: yes, have a look ( 9 records with 324 bird samples from three continents).
after 8 minutes – no business. He missed the bird, he was looking for.

maybe you missed or looked for list variable here

anticipation of the year, means release january 2018:


Berlin classic of the year:

ambition of the year:

2018 we start our 7Inch Label. Right of ownership already save.

question of the year: …. do you have normal records?

poem of the year = Peace, wherever !

the earth is my altar,

the sky is my dome

the mind is my garden

the heart is my home

and i’m always at home

Record Store Day 2017

Posted in Musik Department Berlin, Musik für alle with tags , , , on 3. April 2017 by Musik Department

Record Store Day 2017, the 10th anniversary

potentially products you can find –  here


consequently no champagne, no schnittchen – but extremely positive vibes and an excellent atmosphere



Smile – see you later

– Smile, 1979 from the album


inherently we are friendly persons. These times are straining. Being critical doesn’t mean being negativ. The original liner notes from this album are!

Actually it was my wife’s idea to give the new LP the title Smile. Go on, laugh a bit from time to time, she said, because I was always looking so cross

Why this album. A so-called Disco Diggler told us, there would be surprising disco tunes on this not so well known Kaempfert vinyl. Mmmh? make your own impression

– Keep On Dancing


for quality listening we prefer ambiente elegante



– Ambiente Elegante, 1975/2016 from the CD compilation


okay – something you can use on the next musical quiz round with your friends. Which, of these following musicians, was a guest in an Oprah Winfrey show

John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten/ Jello Biafra / Joey Ramone

on the recent germany tour Jello Biafra with a clear t-shirt statement


we say


see you later

– See You Later, 1976 from the album



The Right Thing To Do

Posted in Musik Department Berlin, Musik für alle with tags , , , , , on 15. April 2016 by Musik Department

– The right thing to do,  1973 from the album


RSD 2016, everything is prepared. We have, better say got, 50 different articles. The right thing to do ? visit a vinyl store near by. Have a talk, have a look and maybe you go home with a smile. Mystery to me ?

– Mystery to me, 1978 from the album


mystery to me, not really, the spread between the distributions and their delivery quote. Sadly we got no Fela Kuti 10Inch, by an order of laughable three. Our quote all together flabby 40%. 2nd mystery, not really, meanwhile on the day before! impertinent pre-order offers on, with double price as necessary ( like that asshole from Columbus, Ohio named tunasaurus). Examples ? The Bowie 7Inch, pre-order price 49,99.


back to business. Mmmhh, nice release

– NG Theme, 2016 from

Nu GuineaThe Tony Allen Experiments


for those, who are not into vinyls. For sure one of the most impressing music documentaries of the last years. This man is…….der pure Wahnsinn

1972 from the album


by the way – after two business months in 2016 we simply conclude, that the major industry forces the disinterest on classic retail sale. Why ? wholesale prices for new releases again up and away. THIS MAKES NO SENSE for all participants ! we called major label Sony/BMG in munich to asked for a customer ID for simply business and the upcomin‘ Record Store Day. Verbally they told us – this makes no sense for them, because of the expectedly sales with us. We know their program, but do they know us? No – so simply fuck u !!

meanwhile we enjoy our daily job, because we love to discover



2016 release, Recorded in South London between 1975-1982 from the album

when you missed the reissue a few years ago – freshly repressed


Jay Richford & Gary Steyan ( aka Brugnolini and Torossi ), 1974/2016

– Feeling Tense
