Trivia / Cat Power

  • Creator Backlash: Marshall hates the version of "He War" that appeared on You Are Free. The version she wanted was Stones-y and recorded with a live band.
  • Creator Breakdown: Moon Pix.
  • Doing It for the Art: Subverted. Marshall was initially making music because her friends were musicians. Also, playing shows would let her and her friends get wasted.
  • Name's The Same: Cat Power shares her name with a wrestler.
  • Throw It In!: According to Moon Pix's engineer Matt Voigt (again), the echo added to the drums on "Cross Bones Style" was meant to cover up egregious timing mistakes - Marshall recorded the guitars first without a click-track, requiring the drummer to play along as best as he could.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Marshall auditioned to be in the cast for Saturday Night Live!
    • Sun originally consisted of songs that were similar to her old sound. When a friend pointed it out, Marshall scrapped the recordings because she didn't want to sound like "sad Cat Power".
