For fans of classic Brit-pop we’re glad to offer two tracks by Kula Shaker, who set the UK on fire when their 1996 debut, K, became the biggest-selling album there since Oasis’ Definitely Maybe. "Hey Dude" and “Knight on the Town” were in fact the first two songs on that debut; both find the band linking classic pop melody with Indian influences, just like a little band from Liverpool once did. And of course, we can’t resist pointing out Kula Shaker’s nifty Beatles connection: Lead singer Crispian Mills’ mom, actress Hayley Mills, was the star of The Family Way, the first non-Beatles film to be scored by Paul McCartney.
So who exactly is Just Kait who has this insanely catchy “U Suck” song? Well, she’s just Kait - or to be exact, she’s Kaitlyn Debenedetto, a 17-year-old high school senior from New Jersey who writes her own stuff and plays every instrument there is. Last year she won an MTV contest to write a new song for the program "Parental Control." Since then her songs have been featured on MTV’s “Discover & Download,” and as E! Entertainment Television’s theme song for its summer 2009 branding campaign. Kait says that when she feels like screaming or punching a wall, she writes a song instead.
