Once in a while strange old Facebook-updates resurface, this time a more than four year old one from the great DJ Walker aka. DJursland.

I didn’t even know Mr. Walker in 2010…

So here’s a list compiled in 5 minuttes.

Nina Hagen Band: Nina Hagen Band

The first record I bought. It introduced me to rock and my life was changed
