    I've been a Univers Zero fanatic since 79'. Their music was often played on an after hours Progressive Rock radio show on WXPN in Philadelphia. I can't recall the name of the show , but I do recall the theme of the show was an excerpt from Mort Garson's Black Mass/Lucifer. I have always been amazed by the composition of Daniel Denis and several other members throughout the band's career. Electric lead guitar was not a main feature in their music. Heatwave displayed a kind of schizoid electric lead guitar which produced a harsh , but interesting tone. There may have been some guitar work on Implosion, but it's rather difficult for me to recall. Phosphorescent Dreams features for the very first time ...a single note electrified sounding guitar that plays signature lines. Nicolas Dechene has a very fine tone and on Phosphorescent Dreams...the guitar takes on a different role unlike other Univers Zero releases of the past that only briefly featured guitar. On this most recent release...the guitar parts are written to play a melody line as other instruments play around it , adding additional harmonies which color the music. The guitar takes on the role of guiding the other instruments..unlike other releases. It's all based on how the music was written, but nevertheless it's a different approach for Univers Zero and I'm loving it. Rhythmix contains 2 of my most favorite pieces....Terres Noires(Blacklands), and Reve Cyclique. For me personally....nothing compares to Ceux Du Dehors. I will always be fanatic over Univers Zero.

    In approximately one week, all rights to all of our Univers Zero titles will revert to the band.

    At that time, we will immediately take them down from our bandcamp page, so if you want them, you should get them right now:
    https://cuneiformrecords.bandcamp.com/

    At that time, we will instruct all 3rd party digital providers (e-music, Amazon digital, iTunes, etc) to take them down, so, once again, if you want them, you should act soon.

    We will still have the rights to sell what we have in stock in physical form until they are gone. In some cases we don't have very many, and, in yet one more final 'again', you should not wait too long if you are interested in these.

    Knowing you a bit, I take it that's about as far as you'll tell us, but....

    It's sad to see this (about) 30 yo partnership end.

    Just thought I'd say that.

    Thank you. That's nice to say and I appreciate it.

    And to anyone looking for drama, I suggest "Coronation Street".

    I was later to the party fining out about Univers Zero in 1998.
    Since that time, I have bought all the new albums on cd and the remix versions. I would be excited and immediately get the new release asap when it showed up in a Wayside email.
    I still have yet to buy the newest UZ album.
    I was hoping it was going to be a one off thing and they would be back to Cuneiform for the next.

    It was a good relationship while it lasted. Let's hope Daniel finds a distributor who does as well as Steve.

    I found it at a huge shopping mall ('Oslo City') just two hours ago - and I'm not even kidding! Beyond far out for real...

    Didn't buy it, though - I've got that material on CD already.

    Oslo is musically superior !
    I dont think I have ever encountered a Univers Zero album in Copenhagen. CD or LP.
    Magma have not played here since 1984, Mats/Morgan have never played here.
    But American jazz...

    This has actually gotten really far-reaching distribution. I've seen it in a few stores that don't necessarily cater to avant stuff, and you can find it on ebay from some of the big bargain retailers. Similar to the Art Zoyd albums Subrosa put out a few years ago. Very nice to see.

    At 9:25 one of UZ's most spectacular tunes starts, but played by Bluecoats and in their own arrangement.
    I wonder how that came about.
    Lets call it a tribute untill further info is available.

  24. #149
    Yeah, I think my jaw would've been on the ground had I heard that live. And, from a technical standpoint, those musicians gotta be in pretty good shape - they were hauling ass all over that field.

    Mmmhhh!!!... Ok, but it takes a while to hit me.

    I was expecting someone like Dave Kerman to cross the image or something of the ilk.
