    And I thought I found the holy grail when I got myself Eve of Destiny's "Nervous and Innocence".
    Finding that was easy compared to E-Typ or Velvet Eden demotapes. Damn.

    I'm looking for the two E-TYP and late VELVET EDEN demo tapes for a long time too. No luck yet. Maybe 100 or less copies made of E-TYP.

    I wonder if anyone has tried emailing the musicians themselves. They must have some extra copies lying around... Probably not.

    I once emailed a small Japanese record label and asked them if they had any leftover copies of one out of print album. I got a reply pretty fast and written in surprisingly good English that they do in fact have a copy and they can send it to me if I pay them with paypal. However, that album was still relatively new and not some 25 year old rare demo tape that's been hidden inside some Egyptian crypt and guarded by a secret brotherhood so that no gaijins can get a hold of it.

    Another time I sent an email to a band's official email address and asked them if they could sell me an album of theirs I was missing. I was surprised when the band's singer himself sent me a reply saying "yeah, I know. I don't have that album myself. I just borrow it from someone when I need to remember how to play those songs before gigs." What the hell!?

    Lmao. Did Isola release anything else other than the Egoiste Butterfly single? That's the only one I own/ am aware of.

    I get the feeling Kaya doesn't like to talk about his older bands, because when I asked him if he's ever going to bring back his older projects, he simply said; "there's no older bands than Schwarz Stein." Okay, if you say so, bro.
    I'm pretty sure that the Meties re-release happened soon after, so whatever.

    I don't know how I would feel if I had a small band 10- 20 years ago and then I got an email from an overseas fan. Happy? Flattered? Maybe a bit bitter if I'd already killed my dreams, cried, sold my record collection, smashed my guitar, cried some more and was currently working as a salaryman.

    There was also a one-track demo tape with the song "OVER..." but nobody's ever seen it. The MP3 of it out there on the internet just came from a file-sharing service back in the day.
