On 13 August 1961, the Berlin Wall was erected in the middle of Berlin - on the night of 12 to 13 August 1961 to be exact. That makes 60 years this year.
This commemoration made me want to offer LDBK on the one hand a musical selection focusing on East and West German music from 1961 - 1989, and on the other hand to combine this selection with an interview with Joe Dilworth. The former Melody Maker photographer moved to Berlin in 2007 where, in addition to his work as a photographer, he co-founded the independent bookshop and photography gallery Bildband Berlin in 2015.
