      Greetings,

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

      AMY ALLISON
      Country-folk-pop-rock sensation: following along in fine family
      lineage where her father Mose also confused and confounded anyone
      trying to pigeonhole him into a particular style, this NYC singer-
      songwriter might use titles like "no frills" and "sad girl" for album
      titles but she never skimps on songs.

      JON BRION
      Famed producer flexes songs: while known for making records with
      everyone from Fionna Apple to Aimee Mann to David Byrne to Jimmie
      Dale Gilmore, this producer's producer also decided to try his own
      hand as an artist, releasing his own solo album and holding court at
      the fashionable Hollywood club Largo with a seemingly endless supply
      of guest starring artists (Ian Hunter, Neil Finn, Elvis Costello,
      Michael Stipe).

      SHIRLEY COLLINS
      Mistress of English Folk: not just in her classic solo albums and
      collaborations with Davy Graham but also her archival music project
      work with Alan Lomax has Collins made her mark in music. In an
      exhaustive and extensive interview with Johan Kugelberg (of stalwart
      publication Ugly Things), she reviews her life and career.

      SHOES INTERVIEW
      Mid-west power pop: after starting their own label to document their
      mid-70's beginnings, this small-town Illinois band worked hard to
      make the Chicago music circuit with their then-no-so-fashionable
      music, attracting the attention of major labels and Kiss's Gene
      Simmons (no fooling). Returning to indie-land, they've persevered
      through down's and up's of their career to continue to make music.
      Lengthy interview with head Shoe Jeff Murphy.

      MATT SHARP
      Return of the former Weezer: The former Weezer bassist and Rentals
      frontman sheds light on his new album, his past, his friendships and
      more.

      Plus our Digitaljukejointbox (featuring chanteuses, bluegrass,
      Brazilian dance music and more) and our continuing Robert Quine
      tribute with thoughts/memories from Brian Eno, Fred Frith, Mike Watt,
      Arto Lindsay, Robert Christgau, Lou Reed/Jethro Tull drummer Doane
      Perry, composer Corin Curschellas, Subterranean Records' Michael
      Carlucci as well as Quine's childhood friends and college buddies.

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

      Oh and a special thanks again to the FNW people here who helped with
      information in the Collins article!

      See you online,
      Jason

        Is Brion's album actually coming out at last?
