I saw this Ibanez and instantly fell in love with it

There was a small music shop near my school, and when I saw this Ibanez one day in the early 90s I instantly fell in love with it. 
I dreamed about it for weeks, but really could not afford it with my after-school job salary. Somehow I managed to take out a line of credit for a couple of hundred Deutschmarks. Don’t ask me how that worked with barely an income, I think I was talking to the bank branch manager several times and really convinced him that that my life depended on it.

On a recent attempt to clean the cellar I came across the silver record award for Kernkraft 400. It reads: “to recognize sales in the United Kingdom of more than 200,000 copies of the Single Kernkraft 400” The song made it to #2 in the UK charts which is amazing in many ways, especially because it’s an instrumental track. This UK release also contained a banging remix by Dave Clarke. DJ Hell proposed him to Data Records as a remixer. I liked the idea because Dave’s ‘Red 2 -Wisdom to the Wise’ was the first Techno track I fell in love with at 9am at an after hour. That lead to me making wanting to buy records and play them, which lead to making music, which lead to this release
