The scratched vinyl show by Adrian Shephard

Adrian Shephard returned to Berlin after a visit to his family in England. He didn’t bring back the Sunday edition of The Panama Daily. In his suitcase was a collection of old longplayers. Then one day in the studio, a short time after it had been hit by the Gysin comet, overlooking the ravage, he found out that the old record player was still intact. “IDEA!” He connected, put on the first record, and The Scratched Vinyl Show was born. Then the record stoped. Now what to do if you…

The Wirebender presents Ghetto Priest special by David Asher, part two

Part two of a masterly mixed show by David Asher.

Says Simon Wade The Wirebender hosted by guest Detroit’s David Asher Presents Part two of a three part special featuring the music of Ghetto Priest.

brainhall art productions presents H.P. Zinker, bootleg from 1992

Brainhall’s offering of a bootleg recording made in Lucerne in 1992 is a fine documental piece of music. You can hear the audience from very near, because the microphone of the recorder was among them. It also shows the energy of a small venue. And it takes the listener back to the early nineties, when after the waves of post-punk band ecclecticism became a part of the independent scene. H.P. Zinker (guitar, bass, drums) reminds of Hüsker Dü, but also of early 70s West Coast music (like the live album…

Interview with Mim King by Shephard/Van Alebeek

One of the many interviews we did in the Oranien Studio in Berlin. And one fine day, while on visit in Berlin, Adrian Shephard’s friend Mim King walked into the studio. Here’s a short portrait of her in Adrian’s words “Mim King is the mermaid who fell to earth and whose home is a homage to her lifetime of seminal bodywork and performance. As a teenager she would wear a rubber diving costume under her clothes and have an obsession with gelatin (jelly babies). One of her jobs was airbrushing…

The Secrets of Alice Berg -FranceCulture by Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek

Back in the year 2009 the Neukölln area of Berlin was still a dirty neighbourhood. Hardly anyone wanted to live there. Apartments were cheap; the bars were the same as ever, for the locals, the typical eckkneipe. This zone of Berlin was not hip at all, and the word hipster, the attitude and fashion style had still to be discovered and introduced. Basement concerts had a strong sense of prohibition. Adrian Shephard and I (=Rinus Van Alebeek) had been doing radio since the year 2006. We had no connection to…
