best of 2009 / decade

Eh sorry. (Check the Pitchfork link below for more on that Dark Meat sleeve.) Anyhoo, here’s sum WORST / BEST OF 2009 / OF DECADE IN MUSIC LISTS … As a matter of principle, I’m not in favour of lists or giving star quotings, but somehow, those end-of-year lists addictive … even though the not so funky yankee indie crowd seems to specialise in them. Anuthà largehearted boy has listed most … I’m just including the ones he hasn’t listed yet … and on those sites, do check the individual sites for other lists or more recent updates too, won’t you, as I’m just listing one list per site, even if they have many (song / album / reissue / sleeve / …).

#1: the back catalogue (aka ISSN 13773828)

[uzine] used to be a music e-zine between 1999 and 2006, run by a threesome and then some (from the mid to end nineties, it was a webzine called ultra – hence the u -, run by (kf) & (hs) a.o. ). The e-zine (now defunct, don’t dream of sending stuff for review) had about 3000 subscribers and even more dedicated readers. We did interviews and reviews and provided the playlists of our radio shows (expect those here later on as well) plus a lot of links, favelists, best of the year overviews, etc. … annexed is the the whole shebang in a 2,6 MB zip featuring txt files and a contents pdf …

Incidentally, everything here is “for demonstration & (internet) conversation purposes”. This here blog will not be making any media files downloadable; such are our settings on this here Posterous platform. If they are presented here, the purpose is to promote artists by providing tangible examples of their art & craft, and to have you, o dear readership, become equally enthusiastic about the art on display, perhaps even tempting you to purchase it legally. As the financial crisis of 2008 has shown, we’re living in a consumer society (and a services economy, and an attention economy, and a spectacle society), so everyone has to be aware of and do what it takes to keep the wheels going (without harming the planet). Also, it is our intent to always provide direct links to artist or label sites, and to the sources we got our information or data from … as well as other relevant and informative links, cf. this site’s subtitle. Conversely (vice versa, mutatis mutandis), we hope to be quoted whenever material of ours is used, including all stuff from the issues of [uzine] contained in this here zip containing our own writings. Do contact us if you have issues or questions …

& feel free to become a fan of this Fb page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/uzine-blog/216710133861

Update: since the switch from Posterous to WordPress, it’s no longer possible to offer a zip. Here’s the contents table instead, and an example issue. When there’s time, we’ll make a separate blogpost of each e-zine.
