Kate Nash Covers Arctic Monkeys
Despite the occasional imagined Lily diss, that other middle-class English MySpace phenom Kate Nash seems well on her way to fulfilling next-bigger-thing status. Especially if she keeps logging covers as excellent as her take on Favourite Worst Nightmare favorite “Fluorescent Adolescent,” which she performed live on Jo Whiley?s Live Lounge. You can hear her hyper-ballad take at Hypeful. Middle-age character studies have never sounded so much fun. It’s as hooky as the Monkeys’ version of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good.” An idea: Maybe the Brits should keep on keeping it this incestuous.
