Two American Greats

Huw Stephens Huw Stephens | 18:45 UK time, Tuesday, 7 November 2006

Got to see two American geniuses in Belgium over the weekend - Cat Power in
Brussels and Sufjan Stevens in Ghent. Not together you understand, thatd be too
much to take in at one gig. Chan Marshall who is Cat Power was on top form, her
voice just immaculate. She has such a presence, on record and onstage. And her
band were incredible. Sufjan was onstage wearing wings. Big, wavy, bird wings.
His songs are ridiculously explosive, again with a brilliant band behind him and
simply gorgeous songs.
Special my friends, special:)
