Rusty Egan didn´t find much in the way fof Weimer-era cabaret when he took his trip to Berlin between the closure of Bowie Night at Billys and the early 1979 opening at Blitz.  But he did find an underground nightlife wholly different from London´s and brought back records by Cluster & Eno, Nina Hagen and Gina  X.  Following his interest in Krautrock and German eletronica,  he then travelled back by way of Dusseldorf, home of bands such as ´´Neu! La Dusseldorf´´  and , of course,  Kraftwerk, whom he met ´at this amazing club`.  Impressed and inspired,  Egan returned to London thinking : ´´ This is what I´ve got to do´´
