I’ve not left myself much to say after such a comprehensive headline. Still, for you dear reader, I’ll try my best. Jose Gonzalez, who of course shot into our consciousnesses via a TV ad, is a rare thing. A popular, but still very very good, folkie singer-songwriter. His new tune, ‘Killing For Love‘, continues where the Veneer LP left off. Performing the lead single on Jay Leno, it’s clear that Jose is still a cool cat to keep an eye on.

Think about it. Who in the world has got a better seat in pop than Letterman? For years, he’s sat at his desk watching the best (and invariably the worst) that music has to offer. Of the former, Letterman had Bj

It's Good To Talkshow: Liam Finn croons all over Letterman

The editor pointed me in the direction of Liam Finn, who according to his esteemed whip crackery, “is the quite talented son of Crowded House’s Neil.” Well, if you don’t think he’s matched the talents of his paw yet, you have to say he trounces him in the beard stakes. That is one fabulous chin appendage. Anyway, have a listen to his rendition of ‘Second Chance‘ and see what you think. One to keep an eye on?

It's Good To Talkshow: At The Drive In go wild on Letterman

At The Drive are/were clearly bonkers. They play music that sounds like it could break yer bones. Sadly, because I’m really ill, I don’t have the gumption to find out what the song is called, but suffice to say, it’s hard-hitting, aggressive and strangely funky. I bet Letterman was just a little scared when these chaps rolled in.

It's Good To Talkshow: Duffy belts out "Mercy" on Jonathan Ross

Bandwagon-jumper? Me? OK, maybe a little, but it gives me great pleasure to see a singer like Duffy – someone who clearly has personality by the bucketload, judging by her voice and fistful of killer tunes – doing so well in the charts. Are we turning a corner away from reed-thin electro-pop and into sixtie- inspired lung-busters? I do hope so. Here’s Duffy getting her rocks off in ‘Mercy’ on the Jonathan Ross Show.

Kenna has been tipped as a star in the making in certain quarters for a few years now, but it’s never really happened for him. Now he’s got The Neptunes on his side he might have more of a chance. Here he is performing the rather funky “Say Goodbye To Love” with Chad and Pharrell (amongst others) on Letterman the other week.

Now, there’s a lot of fuss over Vampire Weekend at the moment. In fact, my esteemed editor is a big fan. Personally, I don’t get it at all (is it just me or is it all a little… balls-less?), but that shouldn’t stop me letting you enjoy the fruits of their labour. Here are Vampire Weekend on the Letterman show, performing ‘A-Punk’. Enjoy.

It's Good To Talkshow: Yeah Yeah Yeahs order Letterman to get 'Down Boy'

Why should I put the Yeah Yeah Yeahs up on My Chemical Toilet? Well, really, there’s no good reason not to. Karen O & Co are one of the few bands you can really put your trust in and this track, ‘Down Boy’, performed on The Late Show with Dave Letterman is as good a performance as you could hope for. If you haven’t already, go and buy all of their LPs and the fantastic EP ‘Is Is’.

It's Good To Talkshow: Foo Fighters belt out "Everlong" on Letterman

I was going to write “you’re nobody unless you’ve been on Letterman playing your newest hit single”, but in fairness, a cursory glance over the bands that have played on the show over the years shows that there have been loads of ‘nobodies’ on the show. Thankfully, the Foo Fighters aren’t a buncha nobodies, and here they are with a song that I feel I should hate… but can’t. It’s “Everlong”!

It's good to talk awards show: Kanye West & Daft Punk at The Grammys

I REALLY want a pair of those lighty-uppy glasses Kanye wears in this performance of “Stronger” with Daft Punk from the Grammy Awards. Sure, I’d need to be in the dark to make sporting them worth it, but that would mean I could legitimately become one of those tools who wears shades in nightclubs.
Check them out for yourself below. Oh, and there’s music to listen to as well. All in all it’s a bit like Tron: The Musical.
