Rockets red glare

Most of Chan Marshall's early songs were angry, alienated, sad, and/or disturbing. This is one of the few that is actually somewhat wistful.

Cat Power, "Rockets", off her first two albums Myra Lee and Dear Sir (which were recorded in the same two-day recording session). Tim Foljahn is the second guitar (Chan's guitar is the jangly one, a characteristic sound of her old Silvertone), Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley is the drummer.
