> From: Perfect Sound Forever
> Subject: Perfect Sound Forever- January/February
> 2003 edition
> Hi all,
> Another year has passed us by and another two months
> have just gone by
> since the last time we said howdy so...
> In the latest edition of Perfect Sound Forever
> online music magazine
> <http://www.perfectsoundforever.com>, you'll find:
> JOHN CALE/LOU REED
> Set free to find new illusions: after the break-up
> of the Velvet
> Underground, how did two of its principles face down
> the '70's? Each took
> a long strange trip. Plus as an added attraction,
> an overall look at
> Cale's solo career.
> Sensitive feminist rock- part of the emerging
> 'Brighton scene'? Steve
> Albini recorded? Le Tigre tourmates? Surely that's
> enough to pique your
> interest, right?
> FARGO ROCK CITY
> Hair Metal today and always: after living in shame
> for years as a fan, Marc
> Horton finds that he can finally admit his love for
> '80's metal thanks to a
> new book (no therapy required).
> HOT HOT HEAT
> Victoria's best kept secret: hopefully no longer.
> Their yelping vocals,
> cheesy keyboards and pushy tempos recall the best
> new wave band you
> couldn't get out of your head. Now, instead of
> wasting your time
> worshipping oldsters who play far-flung bars in the
> middle of nowhere, you
> can worship these up-and-comers playing the same
> music better.
> ANDY KAUFMAN/BILL HICKS/ELVIS PRESLEY
> Elvis' true progeny? What's the connection between
> these two late,
> cutting-edge comedians and the King? Jesse Jarnow
> JAZZ-ROCK ASSASSINATED
> Another victim of the me-decade: Don't blame Miles
> for giving fusion a bad
> name. Some of his own crew did the job themselves
> but before it was
> synonymous with 'crap,' there was actually such a
> thing as GOOD and even
> great jazz-rock.
> JESUS LIZARD
> A look back through their urine: "The Pixies, Husker
> Du, and Smashing
> Pumpkins were significant bands, but only in the
> context of being
> tremendously creative and original pop music. The
> Lizard is interesting
> because all these bands spent the late eighties and
> or early nineties
> receiving critical praise but JL was not interested
> in making pop or rock
> music in any recognizable form."
> LARGE ENSEMBLE FREE JAZZ
> Not oxymoronic at all- really. Why should swing
> bands have all the fun and
> all the personnel? Michael Mantler, Manfred Schoof
> and William Parker
> assemble big ensembles against the odds.
> News and reviews: Suicide, jump blues, Nick Cave,
> Humphrey Bogart, Peter
> Gabriel, Amon Tobin, DOA, Arto Lindsay, The
> Residents, Marky Ramone and more...
> MADELEINE PEYROUX
> What happened to the chanteuse? Is there no place
> in the hearts and minds
> of a pop audience today for a singer whose idea of
> pop is George Gershwin
> and Cole Porter? Even with boosters like Marc Ribot
> and Vernon Reid and
> James Carter?
> SHIRLEY TEMPLE OF DOOM
> Name that (non-metal) tune: proving again that a
> punny name with loads of
> connotations usually gets attached to a
> trash-metal/art-rock band.
> JOE STRUMMER, R.I.P.
> With the passing of the Clash shouter, we present an
> interview from 1999
> where he shares his thoughts on Tony Bennett, South
> Park, his mountain goat
> hammock, his life as a walnut, how to properly
> threaten record companies,
> good punk manners and dollar-bill politics. He even
> picks some of his
> favorite music.
> VINYL ANACHRONIST
> 2002: Year of Triumph! Fifth Annual Vinyl
> Anachronist Awards and why the
> CD format may be doomed.
> VICTORIA WILLIAMS
> She loves you: the inspirational tale of quirky,
> moving singer who's
> overcome MS and general apathy of a sadly ignorant
> mass audience. She gets
> by with a little of help from her many (famous)
> HAWKSLEY WORKMAN
> His delicious world: Toronto boy makes good with his
> weird love songs and
> fictions, helping to actually give
> 'singer/songwriter' a good name.
> We also have the staff picks for the best music of
> 2002, including a
> ridiculously exhaustive list from yours truly.
> Also, if you have time, you
> might want to see my favorite
> articles/scribings/eulogies of 2002 at the
> exemplary rockcritics.com site:
> Slappy holidays to you. I'll probably be offline
> for the rest of the month
> so I'll see you online after the New Year...
