Welcome to my blog. In 2016 I wrote my first stories on my favorite albums. Due to the many, nice and positive feedback and comments I started this blog, A Pop Life subtitled My life with music.
What can you expect? Stories about music which I think is nice, beautiful of moving, reviews, concert reports and much more. I get very happy whenever I receive comments, whether through one of the social media channels or by using the comment form on this site. I love to hear from my readers!
For now, have very much (reading) fun!
Mazarati, the story about the band, the debut album, 100 MPH, Prince's Kiss and more. thye rise and fall of an R&B group!
In 1976 the first part of Lee "Scratch" Perry's "holy trinity" was released: Max Romeo's great War Ina Babylon!
In 1981 Crass released their third album, the anarcho punk feminist Penis Envy. A look back at a brilliant album!
Three days before his untimely death, J Dilla released the influential Donuts. A look back at an important hip-hop album!
In 1986 Public Image Limited (PIL), consisting of the most unlikely line-up ever, released their fifth studio album. The story of Album!
The long expected re-release of Prince's great 1987 album Sign O' The Times. A review of an impressive release. In one word? Crucial!
Another great release in Neil Young's ongoing Archives series, the previously unreleased 1975 album Homegrown. An impressive piece of music history.
The release of RTJ4 came earlier than planned. A great move, because this album is very much needed. The shocking events in the US need perspective. Run The Jewels provide that in an impressive way!
In 1999 BowieNet members received the first Bowie internet CD, in part compiled by members themselves. In 2020 it was made available for everybody to enjoy and listen to!
2½/5: The cooperation with the Metropole Orkest and the special ambiance couldn't inspire the band. Too bad.
3½/5: Very entertaining show by U.K. Subs, who raced through their set within an hour. Great evening!
4/5: A great closer of the concert year 2019. A beautiful story by Fırat Tanış accompanied by beautiful songs performed at a very high level.
