Adding two of Suleman’s beautiful drawings from his sketchbook here. They’re not part of the exhibition – not yet -, but if you ask him, I’m sure he’ll be showing you his little studio at IVS, with all the research that went into his show.
“Run her, my towhead grandchillen, and let this geezer dandle you upon his knee. Now let me set my old brain a-ruminatin’, ah, what upbuilding tale from days of yore shall I relate to today?” (Lester Bangs)
Wolfgang Burat sent me these photos yesterday, I had no idea that they existed: me at a concert of Palais Schaumburg, my first job for Spex magazine – standing next to Germany’s punk representative no. 1, Campino, singer of Die Toten Hosen (The Dead Trousers). Had no idea that he was there, too. As one can see, I was more a ‘new romantic’ than a punk back then. Right next to me Boris Löhe, who later became managing director of Mercury and then Columbia.
