Idi­ots Re­cords

Nobody's fool

The Idi­ots, with front­man Sir Hannes Schmidt, is one of the old­est and long-last­ing punk form­a­tions in the coun­try. The band was formed in 1978, and in 1984 re­leased its ex­cel­lent début al­bum, ?They call us: The Idi­ots?. Sir Hannes Schmidt also played in the bands Phantoms of the Fu­ture and Ho­nig­dieb, some­times very suc­cess­fully. In the Rhein­is­che Strasse, where you?ll find Dortmund?s re­cord para­dise, he has also been run­ning the Idi­ots Re­cords store for over 30 years now. Met­al, in­die, and of course above all punk, dom­in­ate the range on sale. The shop is stuffed full of re­cords from floor to ceil­ing, as well as ac­cessor­ies in­clud­ing T-shirts, posters, badges, pins and much more. Here, any­one ask­ing for Justin Bieber should be pre­pared to take the con­sequences. However, cus­tom­ers look­ing for any­thing bey­ond the main­stream will feel at home here.
