Melina Pieters’ Mina’s Vinyl Paradise Instagram account is a haven for Pink Floyd, Marillion and David Bowie albums, but there’s a special place for German punks Die Ärzte, too

WThat was the first record you bought?

“I was about 12 years old when I started to collect records. At That time, I regularly visited my friend in Stuttgart. She had just discovered her passion for vinyl and pulled me into a shop in downtown Stuttgart. There, I bought my first LP, Toto IV, as well as some other Toto records, because I was a huge fan at That time. My parents were convinced it was only a phase and my 13th birthday gift was a very cheap and simple record player. They were wrong, because I’ve been a passionate collector from then until today!”
