it is sunday and i am working like everyday since the last – i don’t know – weeks. but i had to do a break this afternoon. two weeks ago i got a new delivery from my favorite vineyard TESCH: some boxes RIESLING UNPLUGGED and WEISSES RAUSCHEN. this wine once was created by MARTIN TESCH as the tour wine of the DIE TOTEN HOSEN. both RIESLINGs i love so much because of their extremely pure, straight and fresh taste – even in winter! okay, i did a break and went to my wine cellar to put out the bottles of the boxes and sort them into my wine rack. this sort of work i love! nice detail: the box with WEISSES RAUSCHEN was closed with a KAUF MICH tape, the title of a vintage DIE TOTEN HOSEN album – very nice. and: CONGRATULATIONS TO TESCH because of decorated as WINEMAKER OF THE YEAR 2012/2013 by FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE. absolutely deserved! break is over now. and for this evening i took a bootle of UNPLUGGED 2011 with me. pics | LTG 


today is the day: HERTHA BSC BERLIN vs. FORTUNA DUESSELDORF. first play off of two matches in berlin: who will play german 1. BUNDESLIGA 2012/13? next tuesday there will be the second play off in DUESSELDORF at the rhein river. why this post? nor i am a FORTUNA fan neither i am a TOTEN HOSEN fan. my football heart belongs to FC KAISERSLAUTERN – forever and ever – and the time i went to TOTEN HOSEN concerts is long ago. about 30 years ago i joined the first gig when they published OPEL GANG. at this time they drove with their old OPEL BLITZ tourbus to their concerts … long time ago – time is running. damn, this music was new for me as a 15 years young boy in the early 80ies: german punk – fast, dirty, uncomplicated, fun, singing, drinking. and i always loved the affinity of the band to soccer and their view about f***ing BAYERN MUENCHEN. about 20 years ago i bought the last album of the band but one week ago i took a peak at last friday published “BALLAST DER REPUBLIK”. 30 years DIE TOTEN HOSEN – unbelievable. there are a lot of songs full of nostalgia that reminds me my youth. greatest song: ALTES FIEBER. perfect text – i often feel the same – listen below. but for this evening: FORTUNA GO! show the HAUPTSTADT how soccer works! you’ll never walk alone. pics & vids | Die Toten Hosen, LTG

DTH 1987 in Fulda at the “KREUZ”. the first time i saw them live. 12,– DM. they came with their rugged OPEL BLITZ.

this OPEL GANG video could not be from 1980. the earliest time could be 1982.
