Thread: Featured Album: Univers Zero - UZED

    Great record!
    One of my strangest UZ memories is during a breakfast at the RIO festival in Carmaux / France (2009 ?) when Daniel Denis suddenly started yelling at (mystery member) which was rather unusual for the normally more relaxed breakfast athmo during the RIO festivals. I learned a bit later the background for his emotional outburst.
    Btw the opposite : a nice improvised morning outdoor mini acoustic coffee concert by Bob Drake during the last Carmaux RIO.

    But - thanks to your memory jog - I now distinctly remember that this (or another) performance DVD was supposed to be the second disc with Clivages, for which DD asked for (and received) an advance based on this project having two discs and then, ultimately, only approved one disc. And - will you be shocked to learn - didn't return the extra advance.

    FUN TIMES!

    It was 2013 and what you witnessed was the end of the end, which had already taken place in the previous few years. By 2013 Phosphorescent Dreams had already come out on another label, they were performing it at that show and I had no involvement with it.

    The relationship had already all gone to shit before the outburst. I just wasn't rising to being baited at breakfast, which led to the outburst.

    "Baited At Breakfast" - great name for the followup to "Phosphorescent Dreams"

    Jeez Luiz. Well now I clearly know what you meant by "UZ kiss-off" and how clueless my response was. Sorry 'bout that!

    That was a lot of fun! I felt Bob was happier with that performance than the official one.

    Well, hopefully, in an attempt to bring this thread back into a happy direction, I spent sometime with Crawling Wind and Heatwave this morning. I imagine Crawling Wind is regarded as a "minor" release, given that it was originally just an EP, but somehow that ended up being what I listened to first this morning, and then on my Walkman, Heatwave was the next, alphabetically, so I just let it go, and listened to the whole of that album as well.

    I have to admit, I'm not as familiar with this music as I probably should be. I got 1313 like a million years ago, back in the 90's, and that was the only Univers Zero I really heard until they played NEARfest. Then I got to see the Sonic Circuits performance. Then I guess i twas 2015, Steve put up low stock warnings for the UZ catalog, and I said, "If I'm gonna get the rest of the albums I better get 'em now, huh?", so I sort of grabbed the rest of the classic era stuff, up through Heatwave in the same of a month or so. And I just haven't spent much time with them, but definitely had fun listening to those two this morning.

    This was the first Univers Zero album I heard, having ordered it from Wayside Music in 1995. After I listened to it, I immediately placed an order with Wayside for all of the other UZ albums.
