FIGHT TO SAVE THE WORLD’S OLDEST TATTOO SHOP

Nyhavn 17 in Copenhagen is the Worlds oldest tattoo studio. This piece of history is to be closed down! The owners of the building have ended the lease as they want to use the premises as a kitchen for their outdoor restaurant. It is utterly disgraceful to destroy this cultural and important place of tattoo history!
The owner of the building also tried to throw out both legendary artist Ole Hansen in the eighties and later on Tattoo Bimbo / Jørgen Thorstein, and now it’s the owner Majbritt Petersens turn to “fight” them.
The case is going to court on the 14th September. Please help support the fight by signing this petition which is gonna be used in court as defend of our trade and history to join here. Thanks! Frank Rosenkilde and Majbritt Petersen.

MUSIC: For Your Box EP by Cage

In 1999 Cage recorded & handmade 100 cassette tapes to promote his debut album: “Movies For The Blind.” They were only recorded on TDK/Sony 60 minute cassettes and he wrote a different message on all the covers and entitled it “For Your Box.”

I have known about this tape for years but never had been able to listen to it, being as there were only 100 available copies and I had been unable to find this tape anywhere.. until tonight while scouring the pages of underground hip-hop bloggers, I found a link to the album I had been dying to hear for years. My holy grail of underground hip-hop, as it might be.

And so kiddies, words can not express the complete joy and fulfillment I am experiencing right now as the twisted words of Cage pour from my speakers, knowing that I have been dying to hear these words for longer than I can remember, and it is everything I had hoped it would be.
