In our latest installment of Artist on Artist, avant-garde cellist Helen Money chats up legendary Velvet Underground veteran and accomplished solo artist John Cale, who is hands-down one of the top five baddest Welsh violists in rock history. Gossip Wolf bears news of a new label affiliated with Saki Records, as well as Yakuza's upcoming LP and the brief return to Chicago of noted Misfits fan Dave Pajo (in his solo guise as Papa M). In the Secret History of Chicago Music, Plastic Crimewave profiles "proper gospel group" the Gay Sisters. And on Soundboard we have a bunch of show recommendations, including Rodriguez, Patterson Hood, and Bobby Womack, who's appearing alongside Cale at this weekend's Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements festival.
