The Razz: Pop: Cat Power can give you pause for thought; Cat Power Liquid Room, Edinburgh, Thursday 1st April.

Byline: David Pollock

EVERYONE who knows American singer/songwriter Chan Marshall knows that she's an erratic performer in her Cat Power persona, given to being absolutely dreadful the first time you see her and then brilliant the next. This gig, however, was truly something more than special a mixture of the hapless and the heroic, and anyone who has a heart can do nothing but love her for it.

For starters, she's very drunk. Not that that's the sort of thing to do before going to your work, but Marshall seems mostly happy enough and it's loosened her tongue a bit. A lot, in fact, because she rambles incessantly about anything and nothing and it takes her an age to properly get started. When she sings, though backed only by her own piano or guitar it's with a chiming, crystalline voice that puts even greats like Beth Orton or Emmylou Harris to shame.
