Kate Nash & Her Ilk

Recommended Posts

This is the first I've heard of this girl, I'm sure she's the next best thing with the ironic NME crowd. What is the point in "music" like this? She's got absolutely nothing to say, a completely uninspired and basic tune backed by a 12 year old drummer tapping out something I could do and I'm the shittest, most unco-ordinated person to ever touch a drum stick. The worst part of it all is her fucking voice. Sure it was alright when Lily Allen did it, I'm not her biggest fan, but I could appreciate what she was doing but now everyone's "singing" in this disaffected, mockney, whining way. Get to fuck, come back with some original ideas

I like some of her stuff, but thats irrelevant.

She's been gigging at least a year and a half but quite likely longer.

So its a bit unfair to accuse her of just ripping off Allen, its the fact that Lily Allen got a massive hype of publicity via NME e.t.c that pushed her forward, whereas its been somewhat slower with Nash.

I want to agree with you Larry, but I checked her myspace and I think it's alright. The bit about the accent doesn't even bother me that much here. Lilly Allen does though. So I will partially unite with you in your annoyance and disaproval.

EDIT: Oops. I listened to a second song. High five. Also the NME is a shit magazine for shit people.

That, in a nutshell, describes Joanna Newsome for me. And I've only ever heard one of her tunes...unless she's also on an advert at the moment, I'm sure there's something floating around now on the telly with a similarly awful female screech over the top of it.

Sounds like she's been locked in her bedroom for the last 5 years (being oh sooooo bittaaaaaaah) with the Babes in Toyland back catalogue.

I'd heard that she'd gone on a Bikini Kill kick but I am not sure about this AT ALL. I really dug her Topshop pop stuff though.

Oh, right. If that bothers you I guess so? I'll agree with you that Jessie J is a bit wank though.

Ha! That video is funny as fuck. It was only a matter of time before some opportunist went down the riot grrrl karaoke route.

Some contrarian popist is bound to write an impassioned defence in The Guardian or some shit, but the song stinks.
