[uzine] has been in existence since 1999, evolving out of ultra www magazine – first as an e-zine, later as a blog on Posterous – and presently we’re here, over at https://uzine.wordpress.com/ …
For our early work, see:
Hey and do join the fan fun via http://www.facebook.com/pages/uzine-blog/216710133861won’t you?
Maybe not for the full 100% – but it looks better than I’d expected. Perhaps not all of the images and files have been exported from Posterous, or uploaded importing the previous blog into WordPress. We’ll see …
Important for yoù: if you see a link with uzine.posterous, replace those words by uzine.wordpress … Likewise change snaporaz.posterous into zaropans.wordpress where needed … And if that does not work, use the tags or use search on this page … The post is there, it just wasn’t possible to update all of the old or dead links – sorry! Likewise, there hasn’t been time yet to put all the images back into image galleries, like they were on Posterous.
This too shall pass. The previous blog on Posterous will end there on 2013-04-30, as indeed Posterous will cease to exist from that date onwards. And it’s been “an incredible journey” indeed. Because after the total breakdown in service and communication of recent years the demise of Posterous came as no surprise (see earlier posts as imported here too) …
Inbetween blogs, there were a number of short posts exclusive to the Fb page of the [uzine] blog … and more music bla bla on the Reissue & Reprint Request Page (RRR).
Social media branding blabla my a***! Since Twitter has taken over Posterous, it’s one problem after the other and NO communication at all on the under or non performance!!
… what with the A-Musik tag and all, I was very curious for these, but of course, this general overview does not cover the NDW era as extensively as, say, the “Berlin Super 80” v/a 2lp / cd+dvd+book; on the other hand, it does offer more historic background
Incidentally, referring to the same NDW period but also including the rest of Germany, do check the v/a “New Deutsch” cd / 2lp, “Teutonik Disaster” cd + cd and “Verschwende Deine Jugend” 2cd compilations as well … click the links word per word & see my earlier reviews of those records via the archive below > U0307 + U0312 + U0319 + U0502.
Nota bene: the playlists are merely intended as an illustration (not a compilation), as the whole Berlin Sampler site is only an extension of the book, not really a site in its own right … Mes excuses for any initial misgivings about that and hats off to editor Guillaume for pointing it out. (I’ve edited this blogpost since his comments below.) Guess I’ll have to find that ISBN 9782918002062 by Théo Lessour now … or just start by this excerpt: http://berlin-sampler.fr/avantproposetpremierepartie.pdf (- kinda reminded me of http://www.therestisnoise.com/ -); there’s also a link to the back cover via http://gazette.lecomptoirdiff.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=968&Itemid=28
& as I’m just starting this blog … do note that maybe I’ll be relocating this post elsewhere later on … I’m still experimenting with the format(s) … I’ve started out looking for the ideal place to post playlists, audio interviews, pdf’s of old e-zines … maybe on Posterous, maybe in WordPress, probably not via Blogger, certainly not via MySpace … and haven’t made up my mind about tweetin’ either! Did go for the autopost to Facebook option, though: http://www.facebook.com/pages/uzine-blog/216710133861 … until the autopost feature got too much bugs, that is.
+ will often do linkdumps without too much explanation – up to you to jump to associations similarly :-)
[Incidentally: in my convention for the e-zine that was and for this blog as it’s developing, in album titles, each word gets a capital, whereas in song titles only the first word and proper names ; band names are something inbetween, e.g. Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, hence e.g. the JB’s.]
