Cat Power's MFA meltdown: now in Mp3!

Bradley's Almanac was nice enough to wait a couple months before posting it, but now you can hear for yourself exactly what happened the night Chan Marshall played her solo gig at the MFA. After the unexpected triumph of her Memphis band tour, she gave a series of interviews declaring her infamous self-destructing-on-stage years were behind her. Then she played the MFA show, which nearly ended halfway through with her walking offstage in the midst of a crazy rant about the soundsystem and the nature of her sincerity. Download the entire show over at Bradley's Place to see what we're talking about.

When Elvis was in his really bad period, the Colonel issued an LP called Having Fun With Elvis on Stage that contained no music and simply edited together about a half hour's worth of the King's increasingly strange between-songs banter. If Matador ever compiles Having No Fun with Chan on Stage this would probably be the single:
