I grew up where I disliked almost any kind of music my friends like to listen to until I got to university. There I meet people with the same music taste. I couldn't stand the usual chart stuff and I'm proud not to know anything of that "I-make-music-for-money" style nowadays. :-)
I am managing the website www.rostock-schwarz.de where we try to keep the small community connected in one or the other way.
