Hey it’s Chan from Cat Power and this is Amoeba.com. I have a couple of my favorite records of all time. I have a lot of favorite records of all time, but my first two… Is this… sorry, it wasn’t funny. Ok, ok? Just kidding. And I have another record that’s really good. This is called ‘Crescent.’ My favorite song on this album is called ‘Lonnie’s Lament.’ And for some reason everything that I really love, that y’know, whatever, sneakers or cheap socks or whatever they always stop making it. So I’d recommend this one, because it’s got ‘Lonnie’s Lament’ on it. It’s one of the most beautiful songs of John Coltrane. I believe he’s from North Carolina. I heard on the radio somewhere, an interview with him and oh, he’s a gentleman, such a gentleman. And they were asking him these very academic questions And he was just so southern, and just hearing him be southern and relaxed. It was amazing. Do you remember who first introduced you to Coltrane? I was in Cape Town when I was 24 and I went to this… I was like where is a fucking… sorry, where’s a late night music place? And walking around. This is back when you had a phone book. You had to find it. Anyway, so I walked in this place, me and my friend Appaloosa, Anne-Laure. We walked into this jazz club. We were the only women in the club and we were the only… there was one more white dude on stage playing alto sax. He’s really good, the young guy’s really good. He’s from Sweden. Go talking with him after the thing, the guy comes and sits with us the guy next door comes and sits with us, we’re having a nice time. Start hanging out with him and he turned me on to this record. And it’s awesome. So I had Billy Idol sit in today because Chan’s still putting her makeup on. Trying to look 39. And this is record number two. ‘Ascenseur pour l’échafaud’ starring Jeanne Moreau. It’s a soundtrack recorded and composed by Miles Davis in 1955. I’ve never seen the movie, but in America they printed it and they called it ‘jazz track’ on side A, and it has the whole record on one side. And side B is something else. But they’ve been reprinting these. I have the original of this and that, and I’m just trying to ship it to Jay-Z as a gift. Maybe there’s a picture of him Have you ever read his autobiography? No. Whew. Thank you so much for talking with us today. Thank you, that was fun. I love Amoeba. Lucia turned me onto Amoeba. At the barbecue last night, Sasha was playing your music. Bullshit. Yeah, and I was like, this is Chan’s song. No way. She was like, yeah I love it. No way. It was so awesome.
