I don't know if any of you have ever heard of this because it's aired in England and I don't know if they play it here in the states, but it is probably one of the best shows on television today, even if it's not aired here.
It's kind of like a David Letterman/Jay Leno type show, except 100 times better. The show is focused entirely on musicians and they have about 5 or 6 bands in this one huge room who play a couple songs each, then Jools interviews them.
If you named a band, any band, they've probably performed on Jools Holland. I want so badly to find a way to watch it here in America! Have any of you heard of it and know of a way to get it on cable or satellite? The only means that I have of seeing performances on the show is through youtube, which I don't mind, but I would like to see it on television.
Here are some killer performances from the show too....
Your welcome ;D
Rodrigo y Gabriela Damien Rice Sonic Youth Thom Yorke Radiohead Radiohead...again
Ya, I've seen it ON DEMAND. I don't know if you know what ON DEMAND is, but it's a list of show's, movies, events, you can order with your TV remote. Anyway, it's pretty neat. Kinda leaves you wanting to hear a lot more from the bands though.

Haha, you know what's funny? Now that you mention it, I do have on demand and I can remember times in the past when I would go to the freezone and in the music category, they had those...so yeah...thanks for reminding me.
But either way, they have some amazing performances on there!
there was a good episode with the flaming lips and paul mcartney.
In this episode when they go around introing the bands, Wayne is rocking the therimine and David Gilmore is playing guitar for McCartney. Now keep in mind Gilmore is playing with McCartney. Yes, that Gilmore with that McCartney. After the brief intros, Jools says something about this being the first time a therimine has been on the show. Dude is completely unflappable.
