      In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever
      <http://www.perfectsoundforever.com>, you'll find (among other things):

      Indie gadfly interrogated
      "Interviewing Jon Langford is no piece of cake. It's not the Welsh
      accent. Trying to listen to what he said on the tape recorder and
      hear under your own cackle of laughter can take many listens. You
      know that he started the literate punk band The Mekons in the late
      70's. Who doesn't? But then there's all those other bands. The Waco
      Brothers. The Pine Valley Cosmonauts. And that's just this week!"

      John Fahey's legacy - Dean Blackwood interview
      "In ten years of the label's existence, Revenant has successfully
      played by its own idiosyncratic rules, choosing to focus on just a
      few releases a year (sometimes less). In carefully picking where to
      concentrate their energies, Revenant's Dean Blackwood has managed to
      appeal to the most obsessive music fans, through expressing both a
      reverence for the music in the research and design of their reissue
      packages, as well as a certain irreverence in presentation..."

      His strange, sad story- an extensive biography including interviews
      with the man himself
      "Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men? Link Wray knew. Wray
      had been on both sides of the switchblade and knew neither end was
      very pretty. If you have any violence in you, any frustrated desires
      or uncontrollable urges, Link's your man. His instrumentals can
      unleash the bats in your belfry. Listen and you feel like you can hit
      the gas and outrun any cop, any creditor, any bad memory."

      We're always looking for good writers and/or ideas so let us know if
      you have anything to share.
