Interview on my modelling art

Several times, I published Dieselpunk-related pictures of my special kind of modelling art. Under the German title 'Virtuelle Eisenbahnwelten' (virtual railway worlds), the online campus magazine of TU Braunschweig, which is the University of Technology at Braunschweig, Germany, published an interview on my art activities. The text is in German but can be easily translated online using the Google translation tool:…

American swing records made in the Soviet Union

In the 1980s, I bought several records with American swing music of the 1930s/1940s in Moscow. At the time, it was almost impossible to buy Western rock music in the Soviet Union. However, American big band jazz from the 1930s/1940s was not only tolerated by the government but actively promoted. This might be because that this music comes from the era before the Cold War, when the USA and the USSR still were comrades in arms in WWII. The Soviet label Melodia…
