Later… with Jools Holland: St Vincent, Johnny Flynn, Squid, Laura Mvula

Jools chats to US musician and BBC 6 Music’s Artist in Residence, Annie Clark aka St Vincent, from her home studio in Los Angeles. They discuss her early life growing up in Texas and the musical influences that shaped her, such as Lou Reed, Al Green and British icon PJ Harvey, who all feature in her top favourite Later… performances. They also explore some of the themes and inspirations behind her recently released fifth studio album, Daddy’s Home, which sees her take on a new persona inspired by the music and culture of the early 1970s.

Multi-talented actor and musician Johnny Flynn makes his debut on the show with a performance filmed at Jools’ studio of the track Ten Degrees of Strange, taken from his latest album, Lost in the Cedar Wood, which was co-written with nature writer Robert MacFarlane and features fellow musicians Cosmo and Merlin Sheldrake as well as Johnny’s nine-year-old son Gabriel. Flynn has recently appeared in hit films such as Emma, The Dig and the David Bowie biopic Stardust, and over the years has written and released four studio albums as well as the soundtrack to hit BBC sitcom The Detectorists.

Also making their Later… debut are Bristol-based five-piece Squid, who will treat viewers to a performance of their single Paddling, which sees the band sharing vocal duties and explores the ‘dichotomy between simple pleasures and decadent consumerism’. Squid first met at Brighton University in 2015, having connected over a love of ambient, jazz, and the propulsive sounds of 1970s Germany. They quickly became one of Britain’s most-lauded new bands and have recently released their debut album, Bright Green Field, which is produced by Dan Carey, the man behind many of the most vital debut records in recent years.

Returning to the show for a performance filmed at West London’s Bush Hall is Birmingham-born multi-instrumentalist and vocal powerhouse Laura Mvula. Armed with her keytar, Laura will perform a number from her forthcoming third LP Pink Noise, an album that she describes as having an ‘obvious 80s palette’ that inspired her to find the ‘delight in dance again’.

Jools Holland presents BBC Two’s flagship music show, with legendary musicians and brand new acts from around the world, all performing live.

EastEnders: 02/08/2021

Kat has a plan to throw Billy a lifeline, Nancy and Frankie land themselves in trouble, and Rocky turns on the charm to help out Harvey.

Set in the East End of London, the show focuses on the tensions between love and family with stories ranging from hard-hitting social issues, to personal, human tragedies. And there’s plenty of funny moments too. 

Classic characters old and new across thousands of episodes have shared a drink in The Queen Vic, shed tears of despair or joy, sat on Arthur’s bench in the Square… and at some point or other they probably crossed paths with Ian Beale.

Season 37 Episode 122

Big Zuu’s Big Eats: Rob Delaney

Big Zuu meets American actor and comedian Rob Delaney and agrees to cook him a bespoke meal that combines all his favourite foods.

Grime artist Big Zuu has a hidden talent – he’s also a great cook. His only professional experience may have been six months working the grill at Nando’s, but now, this self-taught chef is hitting the road with his old school mates Tubsey and Hyder, looking to cook up amazing dishes in the back of his very own food truck for a selection of the UK’s favourite comedians.

As a musician, Zuu knows all about the difficulties of finding good food on tour – but how does the comedy circuit compare? In this series he’s meeting top comics – including Jimmy Carr, Josh Widdicombe, Jamali Maddix and London Hughes – to cook them the perfect post-gig rider, ready for when they come off stage.

And for each meal he adds his own signature twist – from using Doritos as a topping on fried chicken, to cramming an entire roast dinner into a Yorkshire pudding sandwich – this is cooking like you’ve never seen it before, but will it be enough for some of the biggest names in British comedy?
