Apparently, a number of people have been covering the Rolling Stones' 35-year-old song "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" lately. Including Britney Spears (god she's mentioned way too much on this page, sorry about that), Fatboy Slim, and of course, our Chan. Music News of The World did a piece on the 'phenomenon'. I didn't bother to read the whole thing but here's Chan's quote: "All Mick Jagger wanted was some pu---. I'm turning it around, I'm a girl. Someone's telling me what I'm supposed to swallow, what I'm supposed to think and stuff. There's a little bit of a rebellious thing, because I'm saying I wanna meet a boy ... like a little bit of 'I can do it, too.' "
|Cat Power has been receiving shout-outs from diverse places lately. According to Matador: "Watching NHL Tonight on ESPN after the Flyers easy win over the lowly Penguins about 2.30 last night proved entertaining. Keith Primeau scored the game winner and the NHL Tonight host said: What Chan Marshall is to Cat Power, Keith Primeau is to the Flyers. True story, and the pronounciation of her first name was correct too."
|Also, in the May 25 issue of Rolling Stone (Britney Spears cover), Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters said that he's been listening to Moon Pix lately saying that .."its like a fuckin lullaby...The best thing to come out of a woman's mouth since Phoebe Snow...and its beautiful."
Meanwhile, Courtney Love recently spoke at a digital conference and in her speech she blasted the music industry, accusing it of drowning out her favorite acts -- who she said include rockers Sleater-Kinney and singer/songwriter Cat Power -- in favor of "crap."
cat power performed at the knitting factory in new york, and it was broadcast live on the internet through the knitting factory website. i love cat power but i ended up enjoying michael hurley's performance more than her's. but i think that may be because the quiet power of cat does not transmit well through a two inch, fuzzy quicktime screen.
