After reading Simon Reynolds’ post punk bible “Rip it Up and Start Again” Philipp wanted to stay a little longer in the field between Wave, Early Electronics, Dub and Avantgarde. Great idea for a new UV radio broadcast. In order not to play the eternal classics again, he looked around for unknown bands, that do not come from UK, USA or Germany. The rule was: One artist per country. Great music has been found.
