  • Berlin

    I'm off to Berlin for a weekend next month - any recommendations for interesting sights (museums/galleries/architecture), adidas vendors and record shops?

    Cheers!

    it's ace. loads to see and do. best flea market for records is right next to tiergarten metro station - loads of stalls with very cheap vinyl. there's a small one right by the old East Station too.

    there's a single long street in the old east german part with about 3 good record shops, a lovely park, and a load of really good local bars and restaurants. will find out the name and post again.

    there's a brilliant mexican restaurant in the posh part of town that's both pretty cheap and very authentic. it's right off the big designer street not too far from tiergarten.

      A friend of mine was working in Berlin for a week last year. She loved it. It sounds like a really great place to go actually. She was raving about some record shop too. New vinyl rather than old I think. Or maybe both. I'll try and find out what it's called or where it is but her memory is appalling so don't hold your breath.

            & more to listen to ? then you must see Frank (Soulpusher) at his club which I think is fortnightly...

            There's a full Adidas shop there - unfortunately I don't know where, as I was being shown around when I was there - rather than finding my own way around...so I'm not sure where everything is - if you get my drift ?.

            Basically though it's a great city - nice atmosphere - good prices - great drinks and food - everywhere!

            and sausages for breakfast ? I'm not kidding!

                Ta! Unfortunately I won't be there when Soul Explosion is on (50/50 and, as usual, I lose   ). But the fleamarket sounds great - I must make a note of what German breakbeatcommonnotsoraer I need to keep an eye out for. I'm really looking forward to it, it's beginning to sound like one weekend won't be enough...

                    Thanks - if I remember, you played that at &#39;Brillo&#39; too? Anyway, what&#39;s up with your charts Serms?&#33;?

                        it&#39;s a bloody nice record. 2 good tracks. &#39;derby&#39; is a cover of &#39;memphis soul stew&#39; and doesn&#39;t mess about like the original - straight into the super-heavy beats&#33;

                        i&#39;m still trying to find out the name of that street for you rich...

                            Cheers for all the tips people&#33; Got back last night after an ace weekend. Spent lots of time just walking around admiring the architecture, ate in a restaurant fusing Japanese and German cuisine on Saturday (waaay better than you&#39;d expect) and had a lazy brunch on Sunday. The food is really good and really cheap, and I&#39;d heartily recommend a visit to those who haven&#39;t been before...

                            Hit a few shops but the best finds were at the Tiergarten flea (still, no &#39;Soul Condor&#39;, &#39;Sunshine Starshine&#39; or Theo Shumann). Wot I got...

                            Triumvirat - &#39;Illusions On A Double Dimple&#39; LP
                            Jeff Cooper And The Stoned Wings - &#39;Tribute To Jimi Hendrix&#39; LP
                            The Animated Egg S/T LP
                            Barrabas &#39;Hijack&#39; 45
                            Titanic &#39;Macumba&#39; 45

                            Volker Kriegel - &#39;Spectrum&#39; LP
                            Volker Kriegel - Lift&#33;&#39; LP
                            Bloomfield, Kooper And Still - &#39;Super Session&#39; LP
