It's Lily Allen's left tit.

What, when she was 11? Jesus.

The NME tears Kate Nash's single apart in the newest issue, but I haven't heard a note of her yet. I'll take Lily Allen bandwaggoners over, I don't know, Bloc Party ones, I think.

I have tried, but alas I don't see any merit in her music at all.

it is a bit lily.

who are the bloc party bandwaggoners tiki? no sarkiness i just wonder who you mean if anyone specific.

She's the 'Caroline's a Victim' one, isn't she? She's all over MTV2 at 1 in the morning. I don't like the song, but I can't deny it's not an earworm.

However I wouldn't compare her to Lily Allen at all on the basis of that single (it's all I've heard of her). Then again, she is one of those stage-schooly types; her artiness is contrived.

MacDara Conroy (MacDara), Wednesday, 31 January 2007 19:16 (twelve years ago) link

She drowns in the own vacancy of her message. She brings nothing new in her music and nothing new in lyrical content. Frankly I don't want to hear about guys who thought her bum was cute and what happened thereafter I want to hear something thats maybe useful or applies to me somehow. And if you can't provide that then a musical fun romp is ok from time to time but not in a serious tone such as her music is. I prefer something of a parody or revival in genre et. al. The Pippetes.

wesley useche (electronicmaji), Wednesday, 31 January 2007 20:30 (twelve years ago) link

You know you hit on one thing that bothered me... I don't care what a female looks like as long as her music is good, but writing a song about people liking your bum plays right in to the sexist industry paradigm that her pal Lily Allen has tried to rail against, insert every conceivable caveat/qualifier here. It's the musical equivalent of showing lots of cleavage. You are asking people to look and evaluate what they see.

And I don't want to be mean because she will probably google herself someday and actually read this but I think that unfortunately she is just not a very attractive girl.

I try not to be sexist, but that song MIGHT actually work if she were HOT. (Actually, it is just bad, nm).

Otherwise, it is without flair (which Lily Allen does indeed possess, whatever you might think of her) and devoid of everything in precisely the manner you describe. Perhaps the 2600 spins a day she gets in myspace are all just people playing it again and again trying to figure out why the stuff is getting so many spins.

Or maybe it is just third-tier "anti-folk" (whatever that is) and the only reason anyone cares about it is because she knows Lily, and trades off of that only too readily I might add.

Have you watched the video? I really like it. I think its good. What Le Tigre were described to me as but weren't. Of course they were better, but that isn't my point. Is it? I like it.

I heard that song and had my guard all up ready for 80,000,000 reviews saying how she sounded like Catherine Tate's 40-year-old schoolgirl Lauren, but none are forthcoming.

Is she actually gonna be popular then?

DJ Mencap, Tuesday, 27 February 2007 20:08 (twelve years ago) link

The level of vitriol on this thread is perplexing. "Merry Happy" is pretty damn good, though "Caroline's a Victim" sounds like straight crap to me.

Don't see how singing about liking (and losing) a guy who once liked yer bum plays into any kind of "industry paradigm". It just plays into life. And the fact that Kate's singing this while not being another grotesque cyborg simulacrum of perfect hotness makes it a hell of a lot more charming than it would be otherwise.

Nothing in "Merry Happy" reads as "serious" to me, but rather (at best) poignant in an offhand, everyday sort of way. Hence, the charming. The lyric writing isn't totally "vacant", either, though that's the tone the voice intentionally adopts. Nothing splashy, but well-observed and even well-turned throughout.

Jeezis. Such wit. Yeah, I get the Lily ripoff thing going on, and I can see that what Kate's offering kinda pales in comparison, but it just ain't that bad. You don't like it? Fine. Go with that.

she makes allen sound great: i don't like allen's songs but at least they are songs; allen can at least sing, after a fashion. nash can't even speak.

No vitriol here, I was actually just grasping for some reason why someone might think she is anything other than a friend of Lily Allen's who has for some unfortunate reason picked up a guitar. She's just not good and I'm not going to stand idly by while she is made into the next big thing without expressing that opinion, multiple times if necessary. There are just way too many people that aren't friends with anyone important or influential that are making good music for a thread like this to have any legs here, in my opinion. And I only checked out her stuff because I actually LIKE Lily Allen and I had the highest possible hopes that here was yet another interesting artist. Sadly, that is not what I found. DUD. Sucks sores.

ok i've read a few weekend on sunday pieces on this broad, but none of them even tried to describe her music. perhaps i will visit "my space" and figure it out for myself, but nothing her boosters or she herself have said recommend her. i'm guessing that her backstory will be revealed sandie thom-style pretty soon. she's a young'un so it's not her fault entirely, but the journalists who promote her are running-dogs.

'Kate Nash has revealed that she is currently writing a series of short stories, and plans to release a book in the future...Nash explained that she is working on a story for children based around a seven-foot transvestite named Roy, and that author Roald Dahl is an influence on her work. "I'd like to release a collection of short stories," she explained. "I'm writing one a bout a 12 year-old boy called George, who meets a seven-foot cross-dresser called Roy. It's a concept about imagination and being whatever your dream is. There's a lot of things I want to achieve creatively," Nash went on to say. "I just like chucking things out and thinking, 'Whatever'"' -
