When I stayed my friend's place, she was two blocks from the old Berlin Wall (as you know, they still mark a line w/ bronze of where the wall used to stand).

Asheville Jon, I can't think of any music that isn't good with good sweet potato pie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Franco Twinkie:

Hi Gary. I'm mesmerized by this picture of the kids playing by the wall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Gary:

Franco T!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Franco Twinkie:

..and I love the music too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Franco Twinkie:

All these primitive electro sounds are so quaint and wonderful. They don't exactly create a sense of menace at this remove. If that was even the point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Gary:

Yeah, I think these guys in particular are having a lot of fun; spiritual cousins w/Messer fur Frau Muller, kind of
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Franco Twinkie:

I can help imagine what kind of gear they had at their disposal. Kind of like some of the earliest Devo.
Avatar 🥁 8:15pm WR:

This aggregation, AG Geige, is quite theatrical.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:16pm chresti:

I was just thinking that, WR.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Gary:

Residents Commercial Album-sounding here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Franco Twinkie:

Mid-range clatter. No bass I can discern. Plus all the tinker-toy ratcheting is very amusing.
Avatar 🥁 8:21pm WR:

And i too have looked repeatedly at the kids by the wall photo. Looking for any clues as to circumstances. Being not so tall, don't think it is The wall, but still something serious with the barbed wire topping.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm chresti:

I like the Messer fur Alle or something..Schlager
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Franco Twinkie:

WR, you just know that kids been kids, they were always flinging all sorts of crap over to the other side.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:27pm chresti:

Would they get electrocuted if they touched the wire?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Franco Twinkie:

I have two friends who were there when the wall came down. They both said the people crossing over were giddy and disoriented.
Avatar 🥁 8:29pm WR:

Yes, my brothers would be throwing all kinds of things over, the photo appears to be by Henri Cartier-Bresson, made soon after the Berlin Wall was erected.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:34pm chresti:

Where are those kids now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Franco Twinkie:

Chresti loves noise music, me not so much, but this is oddly compelling to me. I guess it's lack of sonic abrasion is what I like.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:35pm chresti:

Some not all noise.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm chresti:

I guess the kids grew up and started bands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Ike:

Mmmm, torta!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Gary:

Ike!
Avatar 🥁 8:57pm WR:

Your question about the kids in the photo (who would be about my age) reminds me of article in NYT in 2019 for the 30th anniversary of the wall coming down that in part was an interview with a man who was in an iconic photo of East Germans celebrating the wall coming down. People had focused on the photo as being similar to the end of WWII Times Square photo of a sailor kissing a nurse.
Avatar 🥁 9:00pm WR:

While the sailor and nurse didn't know each other, the young East Germans were friends. The man said he had lost track of his woman friend within a year or so after the wall came down. His life had turned out pretty grim.
Avatar 🥁 9:25pm WR:

This band, Wartburgs für Walter, definitely inspired by Brit. punk bands.
Avatar 🥁 9:27pm WR:

Would assume most of these were originally distributed on cassettes.
Avatar 🥁 9:30pm tim abdellah:

The last Wartburgs track sounds like a tape loop manipulation of "When The Whip Comes Down" by the Rolling Stones
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Gary:

Oh, yes, it did, Tim
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Gary:

A portion of tonight's music came from the terrific blog Tape Attack: tapeattack.blogspot.com

Avatar 🥁 9:41pm WR:

I like this tune but the band name Karl Marx Stadt Studio Big Band makes me love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm coelacanth∅:

regarding questions about the wall earlier -
the wall started out smaller, less treacherous and gradually got added to over time, so this picture is probably c.1961-62?
and the electricity wasn't added yet, but when it was it wasn't to the wires immediately accessible to the people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm coelacanth∅:

...i saw a diagram once but i can't find it now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Gary:

Jeez, stop escapees, coel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm coelacanth∅:

i don't know why this link is called "4laffs" but it's a diagram of the wall, in places where there was enough space for this.
(in some places the wall was just the side of a building with the windows bricked-over)
