Later Live Jools Holland 7 April 2009

Glasgow's art school rockers Franz Ferdinand played songs from their most recent album Tonight - got this!

British ska legends The Specials had seven consecutive top 10 singles in the late 70s and early 80s. They recently announced they were reforming to celebrate their 30th anniversary and perform a selection of their classic songs. They had greyer hairs than this but the music was as vital.

American singer-songwriter Carole King makes her first UK TV performance since 1971, the same year as her landmark album Tapestry was released. You've Got a Friend. Superb to see her live again - this was the first CD I ever bought.

Karen O, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase, aka Yeah Yeah Yeahs, debut tracks from their new album It's Blitz!

Making their TV debut are The Mummers, a big band from Brighton who feature the quirky and quixotic vocals of Raissa Khan-Panni

Plus Blackpool-born singer-songwriter Karima Francis.
