Apparently Suede and Cat Power are on. That's no bad.
The Strypes are also on... that is bad.
the best song on her new album. Great video too.
next week. I'll be staying in Manhattan. I'm looking forward to listening to the song as I walk along the streets.
going in July with my friend after having been to the Pitchfork festival, gonna make a playlist of NY songs to try and amplify the atmosphere
but she is so damn beautiful it hardly matters - when she smiles in the shop with the records ......
This is everyone who's playing tonight and I think suede are opening and closing the show
Charles Bradley's on...he'd the man.
My god they are awful.
Clearly they have dads in the industry, because otherwise I would seriously think music is dead if that was what is considered new and exciting in 2013.
It's like some fucking nightmarish conglomerate of all the worst bits of Viva Brother and Mr. Bugg.
They look like tossers from The Bullingdon Club. I'll have a listen to them on Jools Holland. I'm guessing for not the whole song somehow.
They look like someone put a rubbish grown up band in a washing machine on hot wash.
I had to look it up, apparently a discarded song for the new album
Good song but I was expecting something from the new album proper than a discarded song.
lovely guitar lick underpinning a James Brown tribute.
so out of key. Guitar solo was decent though.
does she always do that?
(I've never seen her live)
think it's a combo of nervousness and not having an instrument to play
I've seen her many times over the years, perhaps as many as ten times. I remember a dull gig from her in the late 90s maybe at The Union Chapel. I saw her at Reading 2001 on a smaller stage. She sang so softly and sparsely that she was drowned out by the main stage on the other side of the site and also by people in the crowd politely whispering something along the lines of "What the fuck is this? This is shit." After getting back from Reading 2001 on the Bank Holiday Monday I had a Cat Power gig (where the very brilliant Lift To Experience supported) where she pulled the same stunt. I also saw her at a seated Shepherds Bush Empire gig in the early 00s where there was an exodus as it was an absolute car crash of a performance. There were quite a few of us at the rubbish O'Neils pub moaning about the gig but happy that we left as it was just such a shit gig. Oh, the first gig I saw at the all new reopened Roundhouse was Cat Power too. Yeah, you've guessed it; it was bad. The obvious question is why I see her again and again. The answer (if anyone cares) is that I really love her on record. I'd love to see her prove me wrong and deliver a good live gig. Perhaps she's matured and sobered up (a bit) and will produce a good gig at The Roundhouse in a few months. Just once!
I recall a story of her starting a gig, stopping, and just saying 'no no no' over and over again. I don't think I'd ever watch her life as it'd shatter the illusion though I've heard she's a little bit better now.
in keeping of what I've seen from her. She's obviously a talented but very troubled artist.
I've heard those stories too, by friends of mine who saw her in the early 00s.
But when I saw her in 06, with her Memphis Rhythm Band, she was very professional and played a nice gig.
It is said she used to drink a lot, which caused her to perfrom badly, but since her "The Greatest" album she sobered up completely.
this will keep me busy until 5pm.
or should I wait for someone else to do it. Cos I can see where this is heading...
then post it on Twitter. Hilarity will ensue.
it needs to happen
