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

   Her feminist catalog
"It doesn't exactly require a feminism as
uncompromising as Andrea Dworkin to observe any
demands for female liberation issued from Yoko
Ono carry with them a problematic premise. Who
better than Ono illustrates the unhappy fact that
"[w]omen have needed what can be gotten [only]
through intercourse: [...] access to male power
through access to the male who has it"? Let us
remember, Ono made her mainstream debut (on the
1968 album Two Virgins) unclothed, a sexual conquest..."

   Her post-Helium life
"The Shapes We Make is the title of Mary Timony's
newest record, and it's a fitting title for a
musician whose oeuvre is ever changing. Since her
first album with her band Helium, she's created a
sound that draws equally on harsh, serrated
musical textures and the lyrical, otherworldly
aspects of-surprise!-art rock. Without, of
course, songs about elves or side-long album suites."

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