Radiohead, Cat Power, Feist, Robyn Hitchcock Help Jools Holland Celebrate 200

We tip our caps to Jools Holland regularly around here, for his musicianship whenever we blow the dust off our Squeeze records, but more frequently when he hosts musicians we love on that BBC show of his. A show which turned 200 episodes old Friday night with a very special lineup of musical well wishers. The Times Online captures the scene:The cake has been sitting all day in the middle of Studio 1 at BBC Television Centre. But only ten minutes before the 200th episode of Later with Jools Holland is due to be recorded does someone realise that lighting 200 candles - and keeping them lit while the studio audience sings Happy Birthday - is easier said than done. The urbane ringmaster of terrestrial music television doesn't fancy his chances of blowing them out either, at least not without singeing his trademark dapper suit.


Cat Power - You Are Free

"Just because they knew your name,
Doesn't mean they know from where you came."
- I Don't Blame You

Chan Marshall has always had a raw and emotional voice that leaves her a glow in a wash of power. 'You Are Free' is her first new material in almost four years, and she's more confident and calculated than with her 1998 release 'Moon Pix'. Beauty in haunted melody and frantic strings; Alluring ballads as addiction itself.
