Bass Player of Einstuerzende Nuebaulten Mark Chung Head Sony independent European distribution, Bootlegs Einstuerzende Nuebaulten in Germany was making claims, which amount to economic terrorist threats claiming all sorts of untruths about Some Bizzare. The allegations are vicious lies. The attacks if they were credible in the least would have been addressed by an attorney and a competent court of law. They have not. They will not be. In truth they have yet to be reduced to a legal writing. Just in case your reader are thinking why are so many Some Bizzare records are being re-issued.
You seemed happy to let Mute's Daniel Miller have Depeche Mode – why's that? Great events transforms lives, plentiful, fulfil not rushing in, as to confuse, person confused will not clap, this was the approach "Conforming to deform" Zga" is a very obscure, obsolete, and peculiar Russian word.
