Link: UGS

I was an early member of UGS, having user number 37 until a database cockup a while back (Thanks KJ!).

It originally started as a board about hip hop, then a well timed explosion of the Dundee music scene a number of years ago co-ordinated with the death of the Kerosene board due to Colin deciding he was too old to be a DJ meant it had a period of rapid growth and then a decline when social network sites started taking off and filled the space sites like UGS were taking advantage of.

It now seems to be diversifying a lot after being narrowly focussed on the Dundee rock scene for a while.

I can heartily recommend it for random stuff, happenings in Dundee, crap films, good films and loads of bitter late 20 and early something ranters about the state of the world.

Linking

I am trying to write a short piece about why I am linking to a particular site and what it means to me rather than adding a plethora of random links from the blog. This means I have to actually think about my association with them and if I can’t write a short paragraph about why I am linking to them then I can’t really expect any readers to be interested in them.

    Oi! I think you’ll find the Kerosene Board died because I felt everyone else was getting younger :p

    That and the Kerosene Community Forums were just becoming a comedy goldmine rather than a proper music forum.

    Wish I’d kept it going now just for the comedy value, but now I really am too old! 😀

    admit it, the real reason was the bandwidth bill for the thread about the holy citadel of Abergatvanistan
