when i can’t get kendrak as my handle on a website, i often use halbstark. i picked it up from reading about german youth movements in class. here’s a clip of the yankees playing their hit, “halbstark” on beat club. who knew it was on youtube?
years ago i tried to adopt halbstark as my dj name on kalx. nobody liked it. everybody thought i meant “half shark”, and they’d call in and tell me i should stick with kendra k. ugh. they won.
