Helmut Salzinger began his career as a journalist and music critic and authored one of the first major German-language books on pop culture. From 1973 to the early 1980's, he wrote columns for the Hamburg music magazine "Sounds" under the pseudonym Jonas Überohr. In the early 80's, however, he withdrew from the cultural scene and retreated to a homestead in Odisheim called HEAD FARM, together with his wife, the artist MO Salzinger. They hosted literary figures, philosophers, and underground artists, and Helmut founded an independent publishing house, Head Farm Odisheim, to print FALK and some volumes of his own poetry.
