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


baby please don’t jam

Isn’t that Beacon Street Union version too much? And isn’t that AC/DC version just wonderful? For other versions of Baby please don’t go(originally recorded by Big Joe Williams in 1935, popularised by Them in 1964), see http://uzine.posterous.com/tag/babypleasedontgo … and also:

power to the golden dawn plant


George Kinney’s eco psych punk … When I saw Charly’s 2010 budget reissue of Power Plantby the Golden Dawn (SNAM950, International Artists 1967), I was immediately reminded of Eva‘s awful remastering (massacre more likely) of CA Quintet’s Trip Thru Hellalbum. And so I was curious: would there be another night vs day difference in this album‘s sound? Luckily, there wasn’t. It’s still as powerful

men are building sand


A skyscraper symphony … yet delicate … (The Left Banke’s original version is not on either of the Sundazed reissues, incidentally. Try to find 1992’s “There’s Gonna Be A Storm – The Complete Recordings 1966-1969” cd on Mercury / PolyGram for that. And for a review of Sundazed’s currently out of print 2001 cd only reissue of “[Montage]”, see [uzine 01.23] here.)

there’s (gonna be) a storm


… for those Left Banke reprints by those who don’t own the Smash originals, those seminal Bam-Caruso albums or that seminal 1992 Mercury comp yet?

#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 …

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.
