rip posterous as of 2013-04-30

Ripps

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).

RIP Reg Presley of the Troggs – as famous for his hits as for his temper – cf. 1972’s “The Troggs Tapes”.

im mr skin


RIP Ed Cassidy (1923-05-04 > 2012-12-06), drummer of Spirit … and IM Randy California (1951-02-20 > 1997-01-02) and John Locke (1943-09-25 > 2006-08-04). Cassidy was instantly recognizable by his shaven head (hence his nicknameMr Skin“) and his fondness for wearing black. He was around twenty years older than the rest of the group (born in 1923). His earlier career was primarily in jazz and included stints with Cannonball Adderley, Gerry Mulligan, Roland Kirk, Thelonious Monk and Lee Konitz. He was a founding member of Rising Sons with Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder.” Quoted from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirit_%28band%29


bill dylan vs bob wilson

Amidst the Dylanmania: “Indiana’s Bill Wilson drove to Nashville and knocked on producer Bob Johnston’s kitchen door in 1973. Bob let him in to play a few songs, liked it, and rounded up his crew that played on Dylan’s “Blonde on Blonde”. They recorded “Ever Changing Minstrel” that night, and it was released on Columbia [CBS] in 1973. The album is now reissued with rare photographs, notes by reissue producer and Tompkins Square label owner Josh Rosenthal, and remastered from the original tapes.” Dixit Rosenthal: “I bought Bill Wilson’s “Ever Changing Minstrel” lp for a quarter in January. Never saw it before. Tracked down Bob Johnston (Dylan, Cohen, Cash) who produced it. He said Bill just showed up at his house one day. They made the record that night, with some of the guys who played on “Blonde On Blonde”. Bill and Bob never saw each other again.” Wilson would die of a heart attack at the age of 46, in 1993. Reissue label: Tompkins Square, cat. no. TSQ2684, rel. 2012-09-18. And do check that Sonobeat / Sonosong story for Wilson’s 1969 demo lp!

jon lord & ride & portishead in 1994

All these tracks are by Ride (1994) and feature Jon Lord on Hammond organ. (RIP Jon Lord 1941-06-09 > 2012-07-16.) The first track is a Portishead remix of “Moonlight Medicine”. The second is the original version of that track, off Carnival Of Light– imho one of the best pop albums of the nineties. And the third track – “At the end of the universe” – is off the “How Does It Feel To Feel?” single, which sees Ride covering the Creation … on the Creation label. I could have included A journey to the end of the universe (version)as well, but I haven’t. Track sources:
