Greetings,

In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever <http://furious.com/perfect/index0220.html>, you'll find (among other things):


KILLED BY DEATH
Punk series revisted by Scott Bass
"Unlike most compilations that concentrated on a particular sound, scene, location or label, this one defined its focus upon how arcane the vinyl tracks were, how maddeningly difficult they proved to obtain. The concept was inevitable; but it was "Redrum Records" from somewhere in Scandinavia who officially got the ball rolling."

GEOFF LEIGH
Interview- UK jazz, Henry Cow by Dr. Gary Gomes
"Geoff Leigh is one of the more interesting improvising musicians performing today. He is perhaps best known to the fan community for his tenure on Henry Cow's first album Leg End but his mu-sical career extended well before this and after. A unique improvisor- at times, he reminds me a little of the late John Gilmour from Sun Ra's Arkestra."

SHOES
Part 1 of their power pop history by Ed Turner
"Gary Klebe and John Murph graduated high school in 1971. While John remained in Zion, attending a local junior college, Gary left for the University of Illinois in Urbana. Distance however did nothing to dampen their aspirations to rock stardom. In letters to each other, they began channeling their creative energies into an ongoing two-man cartoon series featuring their million-selling "supergroup," a band they called Shoes."
