Cat Power - The Greatest



Cat Power (stage name for singer Charlyn "Chan" Marshall) is a strange little lady. I saw her recently live in NYC and she seems really shy and to have her own world (which is a good thing) but she's a real artist with a warm, original and evocative voice. She just released a new album (The Greatest).

Isn't she? though I don't know if she's played a lot on french radio/tv so far

I discovered her when she released "What the community would think".
My attention was grabbed because the drummer on this LP is Steve Shelley from "Sonic Youth".
Anyway two days after I first heard about her ,she was on NPA singing "Nude as the news".
(so first appearance on french tv must have been 1996)

Been hooked ever since ...

If that's of any interest (hope it is) there is the appearance I was talking about

Hey Bandini!
welcome here and thanks a lot for the video link, she seems a bit younger indeed (10 years exactly) cool song
And... ah! the good ol' times of NPA hosted by Gildas...
