mighty!! where have YOU been so long, zipangu?!? ;) and back with a big bang... ruins + umezu, i never would've thought their path ever crossed each other. i used to love the ruins a lot, and still love umezu, so i'm curious what this will sound like.

lucky :)

Hello Lucky !!! YES, many months have passed... In fact, it's more difficult to find other new and OOP records in that area. I should find new partners for example ! Anyway, I know you continue to "feed" your own blog and it's always a GREAT pleasure to discover many other music universes !

All the best,

about this music - it's great to hear this music in such an odd combination of ruins + umezu, they don't really are one of kind, i think, but it's great fun to hear "b.u.g.", "burning stone" or "big head" with sax - zorn would've probably done a similar job... ;)

are limiting your rips to 160kb/s with purpose?!? i'm just wondering. 320 would bring the music to more deep ends...

i understand, limiting yourself makes it quite difficult, which is half the fun. but you always can change gear (=genre), like you did with the downtown blog. i had limiting blogs myself, the first one i dedicated to artists beginning with an "m" in their (family) name, and i soon ran out of interesting stuff to post, so i changed to a cross-genre blog like psychic hut, only to try out a blog for accordion music, film music, one narrowed to releases from zorn's avant label.

you know - if you ever feel interested in participating in a blog like the psychic hut, just say a word and i'd be very glad to hand you the key!! and YOU decide what kind of out of print material you post - i know you enough to trust you a 100%.

since then - au revoir!! :=)

The low kbps is my fault, not Zipangu's. My hosting site will not allow files larger than 20MB, so 160kbps was the highest bitrate I was able to use when I uploaded the files for him, since some of the pieces are so long.

Hi: could you repost all the Umezu posts in another place than Megaupload or filesonic or fileserve?.They were closed...:-(

yes, I'll try to find an another place ! But I don't know when I could do that because I'll have to convert ALL records (again) !!?
