  1. Joolsy says: It sucks ivory keys. But I'd probably have him on the show for ratings. Woo!
  2. Jools  Holland


    Knows it baby. Yeah.
  3. Yeah! But! Arcade Fire! Look, they've Napolean Dynamiteeeeheeee in the band and everything:
  4. Hey you pasty faced kids! Long time no plug from me. Did you miss my buns of steel? Marvellous! Here's on tonights show, woohoo! The Arcade Fire Win Butler and Regine Chassagne formed The Arcade Fire in Montreal, Canada, but originally hail from Texas and Haiti. The pair married in 2003 and released their debut album, 'Funeral', earlier this year. Comparisons with Flaming Lips and Talking Heads ensured rave reviews. Foo Fighters Foo Fighters are led by happy go lucky ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. He switched to guitar and vocals when he formed the band in 1994. When 'One By One' came out in 2002 many hailed it as the album of the year. A new double album is due in June. Black Eyed Peas The LA rap crew have been together since the late 90s but they didn't reach star status until 2003 when "Where Is The Love" and then "Shut Up" hit the charts. A brand new album 'Monkey Business' comes out in late May. Black Eyed Peas profile and pics. Mariza Officially the saviour of 'Fado' (Portugal's answer to the Blues), Mariza returns to Later... bringing with her more songs highlighting how she's brought this traditional form of music into the 21st century. Hard Fi West London's Hard Fi are the product of their suburban environment; the sound of four twenty-somethings on the minimum wage in love and in debt. Their next single "Hard To Beat" is expected to chart in the top 20. So basically, just pop in and out so you don't miss any of Arcade Fire but you get to see most of the Buffy film on BBC One. Woo! Hugs x, Joolsy

  7. Toots and the Maytals Toots Hibbert is one of the great voices of Jamaica and Toots and the Maytals are the true architects of reggae music.

Jet Melbourne four piece Jet describe themselves as "everything that is raw, primitive, direct and loose about rock music". They'll be performing songs from their debut album "Get Born".

Graham Coxon Blur's ex-guitarist has just released his fifth and possibly his best solo album; 'Happiness In Magazines' which confirms his status as one of the UK's finest singer songwriters. Bobby Womack The Atlantic Soul legend started off playing guitar with Sam Cooke & Wilson Pickett, played on Sly Stone's 'There's A Riot Going On' and is best mates with the Rolling Stones. But he was never in Womack & Womack... The Bad Plus This pop and rock-influenced jazz trio from the Midwest have been making music for many years but didn't get around to releasing their debut album until 2001. The Killers The Killers, who hail from Las Vegas, are to set to unleash their debut album, 'Hot Fuss', in June. The lucky few who've already heard it say they'll never think about music in the same way again! Ojos de Brujo Ojos de Brujo are a Barcelona based musical collective. Their name means "Eyes of the Wizard" and their sound has been described as 'Flamenco hip-hop' - incorporating Catalan rumba, reggae, rock & dance music. So kids, things are certainly heating up in this series...I hope you can all get down and boogie on BBc2 tonight.
  9. Ash It might be ten years since Ash first started making waves but in 2004 they've returned looking more youthful and energised than ever. They've just releasd a fantastic new record, called Meltdown.

    I do have the main maestro Morrissey on my show tonight! Marvellous it will indeed be.
  12. Morrissey 2004 looks set to be a triumphant year for Morrissey. The former Smiths front man has just released his first album in seven years to rave reviews and in June he's curating the prestigious Meltdown festival. Beta Band The Beta Band make extroadinary music that combines everything from lo-fi dubs, bizarre samples to staightforward rock sounds. Their superb new album 'Heroes To Zeros' is out now. The Ordinary Boys Hailing from Worthing on the South coast The Ordinary Boys have clearly been listening to the likes of The Smiths & The Jam in their youth. One of 2004's hottest tips, they release their debut album later this summer. Junior Murvin Jamaican Junior Murvin has been making music since the early 70s but it was his "Police And Thieves" '76 hit that shot him to fame and inspired Lee "Scratch" Perry amongst many others. Glenn Tilbrook Glenn Tilbrook was one of the founder members of Squeeze (along with Jools!). Together with Chris Difford, Tilbrook earned a reputation as one of the UK's finest songwriters and had several top 10 hits. He releases his second solo album next month. Pietra Montecorvino Pietra Montecorvino was born in Naples, Italy in 1962 but she didn't release her first album until she was nearly 30. A remarkable singer and performer; she's won awards and staged her own show 'A Neapolitan Tango'. Johnny Clarke Johnny Clarke was born in Jamaica in 1955. After winning a talent contest he released several records and by the mid 70s he was the most exciting singer in Jamaica. He's made consistently good records ever since. That's the line up tonight kids, and it's easily the best yet! Ignore that twat Ross and his Franz Ferdinand. We had them on months ago! Remember: 11.35pm, BBC 2 TONIGHT! Check check check it out babaaay, Joolsy
  13. Alanis Morissette 'Jagged Little Pill' made Alanis Morissette a household name throughout the world. Nine years and 40 million albums later Alanis is about to release her fourth album, 'So-Called Chaos'. Alicia Keys Alicia Keys has been hailed as one of the world's most innovative soul stars. Her second album, 'The Diary Of Alicia Keys', released last year, confirmed her status as a wonderful singer and songwriter. Snow Patrol Thanks to the smash hit "Run" Snow Patrol have at last got the recognition they deserve. The band, who come from from Belfast but were formed in Dundee, have been touted as this year's Coldplay. Robert Randolph & The Family Band 24 year old Robert Randolph started performing for church services before forming The Family Band. They perform a powerful mix of blues and rock which impressed Eric Clapton so much that he asked them to support him on his recent UK tour. Rufus Wainwright Rufus Wainwright is the son of singer-songwriters Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle. He's a remarkable lyricist and innovative musician who releases his fourth album, 'Want One', later this month. Devendra Banhart Born in Texas and raised in Venezuela & California, 21 year old Devendra Banhart has already led a colourful life. His debut album is a wonderul mixture of blues and acoustic folk and has drawn comparisons to Syd Barrett & Nick Drake. 11:35pm, BBC2 Don't forget about old Mozza on that twat Ross' show!
