Excerpts from internet.listserv.postcard2: 21-Mar-99 Re: Clip: rock critic weird.. by "Dave Purcell"@one.net > I'd rather read something > by Neal or Jon or Roy or many of the other writers in our circle Speaking of which, I just got the new ND, and its got a reprint of Gracey's tribute to Jimmy Day (which I still maint ain is p2 Post of the Year) and a fine discussion of music and coming-of-age by David Cantell under the guise of a review of the new Wilco and Joe Henry records. The rest of the magazine looks pretty solid as well, with a cover article on Earle & McCoury that actually talks about the band, a John Welsey Harding/Nic Jones article, a Clodhopper review, and a good interview with Kelly Willis. Haven't read them yet, but there are also pieces on Westerberg, Kristin Hersh and Terry Allen. Just the kind of thing to proscrastinate with while I try to make some deadlines this week. Carl Z.
