Heino Announces Retirement

WFMU, who introduced us to Heino through Fabio's THAT'S IRRITAINMENT videos, has received word that Heino is retiring after a final tour in Germany this October. So, if you wanna catch our favorite deep voiced folk singer in concert this is your last chance!

Thanks for the memories, Heino!

I can think of only one suitable way to celebrate the end of an era. Career retrospective DVD music video collections! Make it happen, Heino! Give your public what they demand!

I second that! Maybe we need to start a write in campagn or maybe a Heino Retrospective DVD petition?

I really didn't know anything about Heino until I went to a page not too long ago (actually a few minutes back) and listened to a few songs, now I'm hooked! Sad to hear he's now retiring. Should've really gotten into those obscure foriegn tunes much earlier in my life!

Heino is part of our international music appriciation outreach program. We also make fun of Bollywood and Japanese muscial preformances, music videos, etc...

That's cool! I think the only Bollywood tune that I couldn't get out of my head after hearing it was the oen used in the Ghost World feature (didn't see the film, but it had to play over the credits, so I have the MP3 anyway).

Not to jump off topic on this post, but want to warn those a new tune was added to my blog this week, and it's a treat that I just couldn't give up on!
