Black Friday? Cyber Monday? Oh Fuck. Blatant consumerism of course. But I wouldn’t mind getting rid of stuff on my shelves, so here’s a deal: order up until december 2nd 0:00 CET anything from my Discogs list and get 15% discount. Only when ordered outside Discogs and the discount doesn’t apply to anything in this list. That easy. I was trying to think of nice name like Korm’s X-mass deal, but that’s just lame, isn’t it?
Discogs catalogue here:

I am confident that my pal Alfred could extent you the same sort of discount; we love shipping our stuff together. Lovers of weird music should check out this account of his:
feel free to order from Alfred directly if you don't need anything from me:

0. Fees.
Right! Nobody likes fees of any kind, certainly not when it ends up in the coffers of some financial institution. So if you trust me enough not to rip you off, especially all my long serving customers, I'd like to ask you to choose 'send money to friend' option in paypal. I don't pay anything to paypal, which is nice. It no longer shows your address, so make sure to send me an e-mail with your most current address.
And of course Discogs; now if you see something over there that you’d like to order, you could order through Discogs. Better is to send me an e-mail and order it from me. I like Discogs, I understand they need to earn a buck too, but I’d like an extra buck too.

1. forthcoming concerts:

2. The latest releases...:

Last month there were two new Modelbau releases..

Modelbau - Offen
this is a c30 cassette for Barreuh Records and it comes with a t-shirt. In fact, the T-shirt is the cover, as there is no paper or anything. Its an edition of 27 copies and it looks great. I have no copies to sell. The label has very few label left and you can order the size of the t-shirt YOU want. Contact without any hesitation the label:

and there was this
Modelbau - A Hundred Yards
was released in an edition of 21 copies, got a few, sold them all and it’s sold out from the label. hopefully there will be a ‘repress’

‘Onder/stroom’, the LP I did with Peter Johan Nijland and Richard Youngs, should be out soon, like in the first week of December. Who knows? (the label I guess)

5. A message from your sponsors

This going to Germany is made possible by two nice gentleman, who drive over with my goodself and your orders. It’s time to support them!

One is Phil from The Legendary Pink Dots I guess no introduction is needed.

The other is Alfred Boland, who has three different Discogs accounts, where you can shop!
for some wave, punk, 70’s, 80’s, dub, pop, rock

for your ambient, experiment, weirdo, postpunk and such
for your classic rock, prog rock, symphonic rock

Both Alfred and me love to sell outside Discogs simply because we earn a bit more, so feel free to ask Alfred and me to bundle stuff together from all our accounts (in combination with my monthly list as well) and pay one shipping price on the lot! Contact me or Alfred (
