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).

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
