What are baby dugongs called quartet




The fact that Spex is moving to Berlin and has lost the entire editorial team has been through for weeks. The excitement was great, everyone felt the need to say more or less relevant about it, but after a few days the fire ran out of straw - but despite subscription and a complete collection of magazines since 1980, the matter has touched me less, yes there was even a time when reading the magazine was a real overcoming. The Rolling Stone was worked through after 2 weeks at the latest and next to it 1 year of unread Spex issues was piled up. Which may also be due to the fact that old sacks are more - and more interesting! - have to talk about as young snot spoons who are still green behind their ears. Since local music hardly ever appeared at Spex, it doesn't matter where the editorial team is located. It can only get better for the cultural part, because it never got out of Cologne's gallery clique. And if the best issue last year was the special issue for the 25th anniversary, because with almost only interviews instead of confused student writing, then things can only be good with the new editor-in-chief Max Dax, although he should already keep Wynton Marsalis and Branford Marsalis apart can. But I was aiming at something completely different: Many articles on the subject of "Spex goes to Berlin" have clearly shown the crisis in German journalism: A lot of opinion without research (that's why I always find it a little difficult to blog regularly, because just like others just a rapidshare link with a picture, possibly with a text copied elsewhere, I find it rather poor). 2 articles on the other hand stood out: once "Spex, die Flakhelfer-Söhne und die Popmusik" by Berthold Seliger and on the other hand Klaus Walter "Ohne Zentralorgan" (disappeared in the depths of the FR online archive) - 2 texts with their own thoughts instead of ( wrong) to ruminate what has been written off. Okay, there is no doubt that Spex's move is a turning point that is cause for review. An idea came to me a few days ago: to create a blog together with others, where all Spex records of the month since 1980 have been posted. Below is the full list. But what kept me from taking the initiative was the discovery that, contrary to my previous memory, "A Tasty Heidfu" from the Nyah Feartiesnie was record of the month. That would actually have been my motivation, but well, then not. If someone else wants to take care of it, I might add a few discs. Note on the list: you can really only speak of a record of the month from around the 150th edition. (Unless there is an explicit LP / CD of the month, the highlighted first review will be listed.)
