This time I´m concentrating on one of my old-time favorites: EN. Reason for this is that I´m still quite excited that I got to see them play live two days in a row just recently. They have been around for three decades and I still remember the time when I bought my first EN record (Strategies Against Architecture Vol. I) sometime in 1985-1986 as a teenager from the most unusual place for such action: the small Greek holiday resort island Kos! I wasn´t quite sure then if I really liked it or not but it sure sounded exciting. Years passed and I fell victim for temporary speed/death metal disease. I traded most of my good records for Venom, Metallica, Mercyful Fate etc. which I truly regretted later. Lucky me, I saw reason some years later and found EN again.
