Cat Power

There is a great quote in a Dylan Thomas story where a young man says "I still loved her, although he didn't like anything she said or did." I always though this was a bit harsh.

In a similar vein, I obviously love Cat Power, but if I was in her presence, I would be unable to speak, just gurgle a bit and probably faint. Looking at the article in the guardian about Cat Power, I am not sure I would be able to keep up with her and I doubt that she would be happy drinking beer while watching Dr Who episodes.

I first heard of her work when I was living in the US. Shew has a new record out soon. From the free track made available she sounds in good form. I am not sure I like her new hair cut.

Here is some classic Cat Power.
