All right, there is much to do online about wether or not German postal rates go up at January 1st. They will go up, but seeing so much is unclear, the nice lady of the post office I visit says it’s not happening on January 1st, simply because she doesn’t know how & why. It may be so that it goes up for private customers and not businesses, so obviously we (me, Alfred and Phil) are trying to enlist as businesses.
However, Germany being Germany, it could very well be that on Wednesday the rates are sky high and we’re fucked. I will always figure out the best rate for you! However, not wanting to risk that I send this out, and Alfred and me go the post office on Monday morning and enjoy those lovely postal rates, while they last…

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.

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 ( )
