Anyway... we split up, three of us went to a large multistorey indoor shopping center. The top three floors were devoted to technology, music, etc. We got computer kit there. I picked up a nifty 256MB USB drive for €15 (£10), which I think I've lost. I also found a large corner devoted to music, including lots of alternative stuff.
Sisters of Mercy - Vision Thing. The only Sisters CD that I didn't have but have been meaning to buy forever. With this one, I can now (FINALLY!) give away the "Best of" CD to someone unsuspecting as I don't need it anymore.
Tristania's new album, Ashes, which rocks in choral, dramatic, gothic metal glory. My second Tristania CD.
VNV Nation's new CD, Matter & Form.
Dead Can Dance - Into the Labyrinth
E Nomine - Die Prophezeiung
Delerium - Karma
Delerium - Semantic Spaces
Haven't listened to most of them... I have a year's backlog of partially looked at emails, and a million other things to do.
Duseldorf is a good city, polite, clean, simple, etc... in short, it's not British! Nothing beats London, my beloved spiritual home, but London is not polite, clean or simple.
