That´s how it started...way back in 1987

started writing that column for an finish, but europ-wide distributed, independant Magazine called many other similar projects RATBEAT did not survived long...actually I do not know whether the 3rd BOPPIN THE BLUES article I provided to them has ever been published or not.....


  1. Tucked away in a crate I have those old Ratbeat mags with yoiur columns. They made it all the way to the world's most isolated city, Perth in Western Australia.

  2. Hi Ralph!
    Dein Name klingt bekannt, aber woher kann ich im Augenblick nicht sagen. Ich hab früher Fanzines in Deutschland rausgebracht, Satanic Hillbilly und Something Wild. Vielleicht waren wir dadurch in Kontakt?! Wie auch immer, ich bin gespannt was Du hier in Zukunft veröffentlichst! Rockin' Regards aus Finnland!

  3. Congratulations on your initiative and her beautiful site! Thanks also for helping to publicize the
    Mundodastrocas 50's songs:

    Hugs man.

  4. Congratulations for the blog, it´s fantastic.
