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

      His theater of melancholy
      "Part of Ackles' ability to look at middle
      America with a detached, analytical, critical,
      but admiringly respectful, tone is that he can
      adopt the insider/outsider status so well... as
      with Lana Turner, Ackles was taken to Hollywood
      in search of celluloid prosperity. He knew at an
      early age the trappings of fame, the surreal
      nonsense offered up on screens, a sort of
      utilitarian Illinois logic coupled with the
      aerial architecture symbolism of Los Angeles."

      Dirty south interview
      "Someday when students and scholars look back to
      study Southern culture in the late 20th and early
      21st century, they're going to dig through
      periodicals, essays and books for information but
      they'll also need to go through the back catalog
      of a Athens, Georgia band if they want a more
      complete picture. Now celebrating their 10th
      anniversary, Drive-By Truckers have just
      unleashed their seventh album. Through it all,
      they've dissected their roots but done so in a
      way that would make their heroes Lynyrd Skynyrd
      (or at least Ronnie Van Zant) proud."

      CBGB reminiscing
      Author Neil Levine: "I had visited with him while
      researching a book on Hilly Kristal and CBGB, and
      sought him out for his insight, recollections,
      and general sense of what fits where, in the big
      scheme of things. What follows is a small snippet
      of what transpired. His appreciation for what
      happened at CBGB, both for the Patti Smith Group
      and for all the other bands involved with that
      club, as well as his great feeling for the
      potential and promise of live performance ran
      very deep and was as heartfelt as anything I’ve ever experienced in rock."

      Philly boys make good
      "2006 - Dave and Serge agree to be interviewed
      for Perfect Sound Forever. There are questions
      they haven't been asked before. About being
      brothers. About what success means for them. And
      what being from Philadelphia really means. Not
      just what the streets look like, smell like,
      sound like – or the pigeons and the donut shops.
      But what it means to have Philly in your heart.
      How it can trip you up, but lift you up again."

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