On some Alphaville fan websites you sometimes will still see the refference to the "old Moonbase website" : http://alphaville.netcns.com

Unfortunately this website has been unavailable for years, since it does not exist anymore.

This is for everyone who discovered Alphaville on the net after the old website disappeared. A chance to see what things looked like back then. [wink]

I stumbled across a website that keeps several copies of various versions of this particular website. http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://alphaville.netcns.com
Make sure you copy and paste this complete link into your webbrowser. Clicking wont work. Sorry.

Besides that it also has copies of older versions of existing ones like http://www.alphaville.de ,

Enjoy !

I loved looking through this - and pics too! Thanks so much Lassie! Such a shame I didn't have an internet connection then so it's nice to see what went on before I was around [smile]

<s>Old Alphaville Moonbase</s>

My apologies, I was wrong in assuming that this website was the predecessor of Moonbase.
I had always thought so, since there was a page on that site on which the band's management could put concerts dates themselves.

The (well made) website was made however not by Alphaville but by a fan Dan Tulovsky.

Glad I found it out before anybody else sw it. [wink]

Oh, I didnīt want to correct you Lassie, that site was among the first I saw back in 1996.

Actually I suspected as much but didn't want to say since I wasn't around at that time and don't know how it was all organised then. Never mind - it's still a good site [smile]

What I really liked about the old Moonbase versions was "AlphaXpress", that was like a magazine online, I have all the copies printed out, and they were interesting because they offered much more detailed look into Alphaville.

I used to watch the site a lot back then. I already had a copy of the site on my computer but it's nice to see it like this!
On the Music page (RealAudio) there is a version of Forever Young from my videotape recording! [wink]

Haha, old memories. I discovered AV online late 1998 and the rest is history.

Where would we be today if it hadn't been for the internet? :)

Oh, thatīs an entire other discussion - I donīt think many of us have met without the internet. It was hard back in the Moonpaper days, people posted their address, so people could trade and stuff, but the internet has changed all that.

I started with AV by only downloading (sorry) BIJ but then i discovered a whole new world....
and bought all their CD's of course !!! [laugh]
and of course this forum, keeping us united so we dont meet only during the summers but we're together all the time !

Dear Lassie,

may seems weird but i totally ignored that such a storage system was existing !!! This opens some other perspectives. Thank you for that !

Dear Jetset,

That is not weird at all, I suspected that there were websites like that, but i didnt think further than that and certainly did not go looking for it. Funny how we all accidentally surf to spots we did not even know existed.

Have a wonderful day !
