DOTNF in october 2019

There's no music to do right now, but I feel ashamed for not writing a single line here since february. All the Harburg Boys are alive making music or writing about art and things. Good to know.
Hope I'll be back to the circus in a few month, when whatever I am doing now becomes boring and my Tele smiles to me again.

with the kindest regards to you HB's

DOTNF in febuary 2019

Hello world,

the crazy world of association: After watching the music video "Quiet" by Get The Blessing, a memory of an episode of 1982 came into my mind. I lived with a drummer in a kind of stockroom at the Nöldekestrasse in Hamburg-Harburg. It was f***ing cold in there and we didn't have neither a fridge nor a coffee machine. So, on sundays we had to walk to an arcade to enjoy a warm room and a nice Donkey Kong-coffee-wine gum-breakfast. - Later on I recorded a sound collage called "Street-Arcade-Sleep", which now has got some pictures:

with kind regards,

DOTNF in january 2019

Hello World,
you might have guessed: DOTNF is a netlabel driven by Rolf Menk. Rolf Menk is a netperson driven by Pierre Godot. Pierre Godot is a netartistname driven by Rolf Menk. So this is a very private show. Does someone care? I don't know. Nobody has ever written something and this thing would be complete stupid if I would care about that myself. Thanks to Gadji Beri Bimba I don't care at all... This is not sex, this is diet. Of course, it's nice if someone likes my food and you're welcome to eat and drink with me. I have tons of selfmade junk food for you :-)
Anyway, I am 59 years old, which for nostalgic reasons reminds me of that:

In 1980 I owned this vinyl and loved "59 to 1". It gave me this avantpunk idea of making music. It directly leads to my first Band "Was keiner wusste" ("What nobody knew" - Find the album here).
In 2019 I also discovered the Minutemen and their phantastic "Double nickels on the dime", which in a way also represents a musically attitude I had in 1980 (but I'd been alone, working rather tuxedomoonish with a drum box and recorders).
The DIY scene. The cassette delinquents (in german "Kassettentäter" or "Geniale Dilettanten"). THIS is my scene! I sometimes forget that and think "There is just jazz and nothing else!". I like jazz, but I am not a musician. Maybe a musicaster. I never studied composition at university and spent years learning an instrument. I always bashed on pieces of wood. Sometimes with strings on it. Thats all.
The worlds greatest DIY tapers:
Martin Newell (very early Cleaners from venus)
Tim Smith (very early Cardiacs)
Daniel Johnston (very early himself)
I now have to change the DOTNF youtube stuff. And upload my new version of "Turkrut" by Was keiner wusste.

DOTNF in december 2018

Listening to my good old Minutemen and fIREHOSE stuff makes me think that music is a good thing to do. - Oh! I found out, that fIREHOSE's "Walking the cow" is just a cover. And now listen to Daniel Johnstons original recording. What a masterpiece! And Daniel has been a tape recording guy!! Welcome to the club, brother. - Oh! Oh! And Roxy Music! The 1974 "Musikladen" video of "Mother of pearl" at youtube! Look and listen to what Manzanera is doing!

I hate all those red crosses here on my publications list. I have to change that! ASAP.

I want cassettes. ASAP,

So sorry again... Nothing changed since october. Music isn't my thing right at the moment, but I'm shure this won't last long ;-)

DOTNF in october 2018

Sorry, there is lots of other work to do these months and moreover I am uninspired. At least there are some pictures by the Menks (H. and R. Menk), which isn't that bad...

Hi there,

a few minutes ago I saw this side...


If you don't know the cardiacs you should look for all their great stuff at youtube. - Some of you may have had the idea that "Progressive-Punk" is a possible thing and not contradictory since they heard newcastles Punishment Of Luxury.

Now listen to the cardiacs. It's an overwhelming experience! I overlooked them in the early eighies... Shame on me... What a lapse...

And please don't forget to visit the link above and spend some money, as Tim Smith is still suffering and needs our help.

All the best for you, Tim

DOTNF in august 2018

Hi there,

All the guitars turned to wood thousands of seconds ago.
All the keyboards are covered with millimeters of dust.
All the Godots are folded in their wrinkles.
All their singing became a squawk.
All the lyrics are a bunch of letters.
Now that I've found you.
My father's, grandfather's and uncle's archive of mounted slides.
Diving into an ocean of pictures.
Not drowning.
But away for months.

DOTNF in july 2018

There's a moon in the sky... It's called the moon

Oh la la... tomorrow is august and there are no july news.
In fact, there are no news...
We had a pink moon on 07/27/18. Remember Nick Drake.
I don't know if there is anyone out there listening to...
...if there is anyone out there at all. And I'm no longer interested in finding out.
It's f*****g hot here these days. Can't really think because of living in an attic.
Oh là là, tu t'es trompé! Music is a splendid dead-end.
Better write a book or paint some pictures about your subjects.
Go to bed, Pierre Godot! Come again in 35 years and let's hear the forgotten tracks of 1980-1990!
Have to find something new for DOTNF...

DOTNF in june 2018

Galerie Lochte published a Summer Soccer Smash hit called "You are the champions". Look for it at iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Deezer, Tidal, Spotify, Apple Music...

(Just for information. - This is not a DOTNF publication.)


I'm on holiday. That's the most interesting information I've got at the moment.
You should be on holiday too.
It's nice.
Give it a try.

Aperol sprizzed,

DOTNF in may 2018

"Nacktschneckendisco" isn't available here any longer. The Godots gave up cassetting and published their album(s) at bandcamp. You can buy it from there for 7 Euros and get two albums (Nacktschneckendisco and Miniaturen) with full artwork (CD Inlet format).
So now here we have lots of these ugly red crosses.

Sorry for that...
