Cold war and the wall. Decadence, uniforms and squatters. Glacial electronica and twilight post-punk. Mark Reeder woz there and sipped on the mysterious essence of Berlin 1979-89: free, strange, intense and brimming with dark characters from the nocturnal underworld, like Nick Cave, Christine F. and Blixa Bargeld of Einstürzende Neubaten.

 

The Cold War and the Wall. Decadence and uniforms. Glacial electronica and the post-punk twilight. Mark Reeder woz there and sipped on the mysterious essence of Berlin 1979-89. Catapulted from a vibrant Manchester to a nocturnal, underground, yet frenetic and revolutionary Berlin, the emigrating musician melds with this new continent: free, strange, lively and plagued by dark characters from the underworld. A tireless explorer, Reeder visits his idols (Tangerine Dream); becomes a sound engineer for Die Toten Hosen and manager of Malaria!; admires the anti-cop battle, huddles up with fellow ex-pat Nick Cave (who's about to start the Bad Seeds); bumps into Christine F. in a club. Explains whom the strange being named Blixa Bargeld from Einstürzende Neubauten is  – to the English-speaking world ("an unorthodox guy, even by Berlin standards). And let's not forget, the fall of the Wall, the founding of Love Parade, "99 Red Balloons" and a visit from New Order. A marvellous history lesson.
