1) Lost a stone
2) Started getting her hair done in Hoxton
3) Discovered Sleater-Kinney
she's been going on about riot grrl stuff since she first put shitty demos on myspace in about 2006
I like this:
I don't care how 'raw' her vocals sound, it's still shit because the vocals are shit
Proper parody innit
Do you not think she looks less attractive after losing a bit of weight? I do.
Makes me sad. Really really sad.
Then turns hilariously shit.
it's pretty solid, so this could have worked so much better
when they do the piss-take songs at the end of the episode...
You don't wanna know what happens just after the one-minute mark.
but i must say, i think she was a LOT fitter before.
sounds like shes hurting herself, and not in a good way
for losing a stone
for a bunch of politically correct brigade no marks getting upset at someone joking when a stage collapses, you're all pretty eager to spend a whole thread discussing whether Kate Nash is much fittah when she is one weight or the other FWIW
but what can you expect from us VIRGINS
bit different joking about a bloke dying to posting mildly sexist stuff in a thread about an attractive woman.
but yeah, both are shit threads.
wasn't joking about a man dying
they say they're not looking to take on any new recruits just at the moment but if you keep on being a massive nonce they might reconsider in a few weeks.
least a 8/10.
Musically, who cares?
(This is a joke)
I was just waiting to be served at a kebab shop in Chalk farm, when I looked over and saw Kate Nash (it was before she was really well known). She saw that I recognised her. When she walked past, I said: Excuse me....are you Kate Nash?
She looked really pleased with herself (not annoyingly) and said: Yeah.
Thank you ladies and gentlemen, you've been a wonderful audience.
she's always said she's into punk music etc and i think maybe she's just experienced enough at music to make it now. the earlier type of music is easier to make
after hearing the whole song she obviously still needs to work at it but it's good shes progressed
of her rock n roll girls school video i think i'd fit right in. she's very giggly and misguided
cos it's sloppier and less concerned with melody.
whilst lyrically 'mouthwash' might have been pretty simplistic, there's some fairly clever instrumental stuff going on.
I always though the piano\vocal melodies were the strongest aspect of her music so it's pretty brave to more or less abandon them altogether.
Has just shat the bed over her wearing a bindie.
Now i'm been rude, sorry
And the vocals in the beginning. It sounds quite a bit like a rougher Warpaint at that point, with the creepy close harmonies and dark bass. The vocals after that though ... why? It so clearly sounds bad, who would you put that to tape?
Pretty disappointed too given that i really do like her earlier attempts at punky stuff

better if you're not watching the video at the same time maybe
her new look is fine but it is a bit try-hard in that video
Vocally, truly awfully terrible. Just terrible. And it's not much of a song.
you'd have to be under the impression she was making decent music in the first place? Maybe, possibly, a slight improvement over the sucking lemons cos you're fittah song.
"My fingertips are holding onto the cracks in our foundations,
And I know that I should let go, but I can't"
Which is pretty devastating really
fucking hell there is some thick people on the music board
don't know why anyone cares about music that is clearly aimed at children. no artistic merit.
there's lots of good music for children

It's not any less terrible than Slint or Sonic Youth or any of that shite, but still terrible. Maybe she's, y'know, finally making the music she wants to and not worrying about chart positions and upsetting the label etc. etc. but it makes my ears a bit sad listening to this and then Foundations back to back.
On a side note I used to fancy Kate Nash more than just about anyone in the world, ever since I saw her at Dot To Dot in Bristol about a month before Foundations came out. She's looking a bit worse for wear these days but that's probably part and parcel of not being part of a radio-friendly unit-shifting corporate mechanism anymore and so forth.
her last album got to number 8 in the charts (despite total disappearance of this kind of 'indie' in the mainstream), she's still signed to a major label who are still going to utilise her strong visual image in the marketing for her already recorded new album which will no doubt feature many songs designed for radio play (just like Doo-Wah-Doo off the last album was clearly chopped down to having one verse, presumably entirely for commercial reasons).
This recording a song in 24 hours thing will have happened with the blessing of Fiction at the very LEAST, and has most probably been planned out for ages.
I think I might be a terrible person
sorry! I understood that you were taking the piss with the first line, but I didn't get the subtle irony in the other two paragraphs! hahah oh well...
delayed, delayed, delayed and then put out like a damp squid. then dropped.
also fappable on the music board wtf?!
You can hear snare and hi-hats over everything.
She also looks like she's been on a coke bender for a few days.
I liked her better when she was meatier.?

Definitely her best song by miles.
And yes. She was fitter fatter.
'Foundations' is a really good pop song
I thought it was fine. But then I didn't mind Foundations either.
STOP TALKING ABOUT HER, EVERYONE.
Female musician launches admirable and pro-active campaign to encourage more women to play music and give them practical advice on how to do it. Internet message board users ignore it and make catty comments about her looks.
I'd say she's won pretty easily.
All I've seen is an embarrassing music video.
I like leg as an insult though. Kudos for that.
around the turn of the century. Glad that this is unlikely to cause a comeback.
but then I'm a sucker for feedback-laden shaggy-dog romps
Did anyone else think her last album was amazing though? So underrated.
but the stick she's getting for this is mad. She's been 'trending' on Twitter all day, not just on DiS. It's a pretty fair artistic change - she's been chatting about Riot Grrl for years, good on her for pursuing it when she could've just spunked out another pop record and sold plenty of records. I can't remember, for example, Plan B getting this much flak for what has to be the biggest, most cynical change of direction of recent history. At least Kate Nash is giving up chart baiting to do something she prefers, rather than the other way around.
it's really the video that is the problem - all that looking in the camera and giving hand gestures was part of the music she USED to make so to drag those moves into the riot grrl/grungey thing she's doing now doesn't work AT ALL
it's embarrassing but easily fixed
I'm sure I'm not the first person to have pointed this out
world keeps turning
I have to say... stay classy, DiSsers.
The vocals though... I'm sure, somewhere, Carrie Brownstein is absolutely pissing herself.
There's some pretty weird shit on there, fair play. Reading this it's like all she's ever done is Foundations followed by this.
It was better than this but still not very good, dreadful lyrics and clunky music. iirc it was very well received on here and got nominated for that alternative Mercury Prize thing Sean runs.
but yeah, I thought the second album was great. Her first felt a bit rushed and scrappy and over-Paul Epworth'ed.
The first one was a bit too new-Lily-Allen for me and never really sat right, as much as I love the twee pop singles there's not much more to it than that. The second album sounded like she was actually enjoying herself more, playing music she gave a shit about. It was just a stronger, more fully formed album
'Birds' is decent enough I guess. She really can't write, though.
plus Don't You Want To Share The Guilt is just a great song, with a brill outro
Going to listen to it again tonight though I think
Here's a great live studio version of it
I think it's good. I listened to the second album again. It's great.
but I really like it.
She does look like a total trustafarian though, but I guess she's a "star" so she can dress how she likes and get away with it.
Also, it's terrible. But mainly the first thing.
couldn't stand it so turned it off half way.
But, if anything, this song has reminded me that I actually really liked her second record. So I've just relistened and yes, I still think it's a good confident record where she is obviously enjoying herself, and it shows. Not the sort of thing I'd normally like either.
but yeah, the new song, just gash.
