Top talent from the last twenty years singing their hearts out in Maida Vale – with Fearne Cotton refreshingly out of shot. After generating a quiet storm of interweb hype, Nigel Godrich's From The Basement series of hi-def, lo-tech net TV got its first showing on telly proper over the weekend – Sky Arts broadcast the superlative first show, with performances from The Shins, Neil Hammond and The White Stripes. It's a lovely combination boxfresh stars and legendary artists – forthcoming shows include performances from Beck and Envelopes, Free Blood and Sonic Youth, with Thom Yorke (in rainbows, above) heading up this Saturday's edition.
