jd covers & a well known dying star sleeve

Silly … but since we’d already posted this one … here goes! Hey and while you listen to that brand new Love will tear us apartcover version by June Tabor & Oysterband (off Ragged Kingdom“, Topic 2011), or Bis’s interpretation (2002), or to two more Curtis & co covers by My Robot Friend (2006) & Tortoise (1995) … well, do check Kapetank‘s two other nods to to Joy Division, Peter Saville and Chris Mathan’s CP1919 pulsar sleeve for Unknown Pleasureswon’t you?

riow revisited

“Flatter” (2003) is under license from Japan’s cult-ish Soup label, see also U0313. Bumps are (were?) three of Tortoise’ finest drumming up a zillion breaks (back in 2007).

#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.
