Well Johnny, I hope Chan makes it through the snow to Detroit. I'll be very interested to hear your report. Didja see the NY Times magazine's feature on her? The media really are all over her.

Cat Power on David Letterman

I was ready to go to sleep when Paul Shaeffer, guest-hosting for Dave, announced Cat Power as the Late Night musical guest. I stuck it out, Johnny Loftus style, ruggedly enduring endless egregious banality (Bob Dole was on for the zillionth time) for a few minutes of music. Well, I don’t know why I ...

Hi Phil

Hi, I'm Kristy, a Glorious Noise team member. I don't remember how to "Log in" -- argh. Anyway, I grew up listening to my sister's Bob Dylan and the Band and David Bowie ... also Delta blues.

Derek, just to wrap up: The idea that women play more chords than men while developing as songwriters is actually extremely interesting and worthy of post-grad...

Way off-topic argument

But don't forget you made your comments on the heels of your "key of girl" statement. Perhaps an aura of condescension floated over your remarks after that? Anyway, I did say 'gal' w...

Troof: Huh? Derek: I'm glad Chan Marshall is a "gal" who meets with your approval. "Gal" is very condescending though, as you must know. Like the next thing you'll say is how purty she is or something. These are real ARTISTS. Liz Phair may not be quite as original as Marshall, but she's been daring ...
