rip posterous as of 2013-04-30


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).

all about money and personal space

Hey! how about a reprint of Spontaneous Overthrow’s “All About Money” album (New-Ark 1984)? Urgently!?! Its hazy title track alone is utterly brilliant – and you can hear both Mr Burns and Dr Dylan in it if you listen closely to the outro. Discovered it via Chocolate Industries’ mighty “Personal Space – Electronic Soul 1974-1984” v/a cd / clear vinyl 2lp (2012) – another winner, not just for fans of Sly, Timmy or Shuggie but also for fans of James & Paradinas! Just listen to Starship Commander Woo Woo’s “Master ship (excerpt)” below.

the long goodbye


The soundtrack of The Long Goodbyefeatures two songs, Hooray for Hollywoodand the eponymous The long goodbye“, composed by John Williams and Johnny Mercer. It was Altman’s idea to have every occurrence of that song arranged differently, from hippie chant, to supermarket muzak, to radio music, effectively achieving the correct mood for the hero’s encounters with eccentric Californians, while pursuing his case.

Quote source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Long_Goodbye_(film)#Soundtrack … Do hope someone will finally release or reissue the soundtrack to Robert Altman’s “The Long Goodbye” (1973) properly, in full, with all versions. Haven’t ever seen it on lp or cd, and haven’t met or read anyone who has … though Varèse Sarabande apparently featured a number of tracks at the end of their limited edition cd reissue of Fitzwilly in 2004. Full info on the film – ànd Raymond Chandler’s 1953 book – via http://snaporaz.posterous.com/the-long-goodbye + more on that soundtrack here: http://www.jw-collection.de/songs/longgoodbye.htm + http://www.jw-collection.de/scores/longgoodbyex.htm
