Kate Nash On Her L.A.-Based Girl Gang | West Coast Sound | LA Weekly

87-etxl1Now a fixture on the L.A. punk scene with her all-girl band, Kate Nash is a London born and bred singer.

She was just 20 when she released her platinum-selling debut album Made of Bricks in 2007, shortly after being discovered on Myspace and championed by Lily Allen. Then chubby-cheeked with shaggy ginger-colored hair, Nash at the time was best known for her catchy break-up song “Foundations.”

But, having moved to L.A. in January, Nash nowadays rocks fishnet stockings and a black-and-blonde pin-up ‘do. She’s stopped crooning about pasty-faced boys and started shrieking about the girls who “make shit happen.” Her bass-heavy female anthem “She Rules” sounds like something Bikini Kill might have recorded in the early ‘90s.

Last year she covered the Fidlar song “Cocaine,” changing the lyrics and calling it “Girl Gang.” It’s an extension of her growing interest in feminism, punk rock and activism. In fact Girl Gang is also an actual, real-life crew, and their first event will be this Sunday at The Smell, with performances by bands including Colleen Green, Death Valley Girls, Cherry Glazerr’s Hannah Uribe (a DJ set), and Nash herself.

“Desde el momento que escuché por primera vez a las Vivian Girls en 2008, Cassie Ramone se convirtió en mi intérprete favorita de esta época. Me gustan las letras que escribe, cómo toca la guitarra y, además, me parece un personaje muy guay aunque está muy loca y vive en un mundo de fantasía, chicos guapos, tarot y Jameson.

En febrero de este año, Vivian Girls anunciaron que se separaban. Esto me dejó muy mal. Pensaba que no iba a poder salir nunca del agujero de tristeza en el que caí de cabeza al enterarme, pero en abril pasé un par de semanas en Nueva York con Cassie y recuperé la felicidad de nuevo: me dijo que acababa de terminar su primer disco en solitario. Lo escuché, me flipó y por fin la semana pasada me llegó la versión física de The Time Has Come, editado en LogLady Records. (…)”

“Last Saturday night, the Lower East Side of Manhattan was lulled into a state of enchantment as New Zealand-bred band Tiny Ruins and ex-Vivian Girls and Babies leader Cassie Ramone plucked and cooed their way into the hearts of the crowd. Ramone set the evening in motion, absorbing the attention of the show-goers with her intense, brooding melodies. Seeing a performance by Ramone is akin to opening one’s third eye, her poignant riffs capable of reminding all that there is much more swimming beneath the social facade. Ramone will release her debut album, The Time Has Come, on August 26 via Loglady. (…)”
