Cat Power dances her way through sole UK gig

Primal Scream and My Bloody Valentine watch Chan Marshall's return

Cat Power dances her way through sole UK gig
Cat Power played her sole UK date of her current whistlestop tour to mark the launch of new covers album 'Jukebox' in London last night (January 27).

Peforming at the Shepherds Bush Empire, Chan Marshall - backed by band the Dirty Delta Blues - performed a set that mixed her own compositions with the covers that feature on the new release.

Watched by the likes of Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie and My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields, Marshall kicked off the show declaring "I love my band, have you met them?" before adding, "Thank, you London I love you too, thank you for coming back!"

Dancing expressively throughout the show, Marshall kicked off with Billie Holiday's 'Don’t Explain', the set included 'Rambling (Wo)Man', George Jackson’s ’Play One For Me Aretha’ and her long time cover favourite, Moby Grape's ’Naked If I Want’, which has featured on both her covers releases.

During a rocked-up version of Smokey Robinson's 'Tracks Of My Tears', Marshall briefly risked incurring the wrath of the smoking ban, taking a few puffs of a cigarette, before wrapping up the show by screwing up copies of her band’s setlist and throwing them into the audience.

"Have a good night, blah, blah, blah," she cheerfully told the crowd, before departing the stage.
