Shoine ya shoes, guvna?

C’mere, a quick question. I was listening to the radio there at lunch time and in between concerted attempts to be hilarious, the DJ played a song by someone called Kate Nash.
Kate Nash, it seems, is another in this new wave of artistes who half-talk their way through their songs, in a cockney accent. The Streets do it as well.
See what I mean? (If YouTube is being a bitch, just keep refreshing, it'll get pissed off complaining and give in eventually).
I think it’s supposed to be like blues for a new generation, what with the songs telling stories and stuff. But really, they just blather on about everyday mundane events, being in nightclubs, ordering chips, breaking up, fighting with their better half, all in their Landan accent. There’d be a cutesy chorus in there somewhere in most of them. It’s like episodes of Eastenders with a backing track or something.

Anyway, I don’t much like it any more, it was alright the first time but now it's getting very old. I’m a curmudgeon about these things. Well, most things. By which I mean, everything.

Like, Chaz and Dave* got there first back in the eighties, and it was shite back then and all.

Pah!
*Not the official video. Or at least, if there was an official video, this isn't it. There's no jellied eels for a start.

19 moos and woofs:

I wouldn't be into that aul modern shite now at all. Give me a fusion of Dickie Rock and John McCormack any day.

Baino said...

Yeh,know what you mean . . Lilly Allen is another annoying little cockney. What's worse is Australian rappers talksinging with thick Aussie accents, there's hope for Alf yet!

kiki said...

mike skinner is from birmingham

and it's not blues, it's garage

kerryview said...

I think it goes back to London 'rock' music of the 60s & 70s - look at theKinks. Even Herman's Hermits sond like like some of these 'new' bands. And don't forget Tommy Steele and his little white bull.
Anyway I agree with you. It goes around

Terence McDanger said...

Now now Kiki, let's not split hairs here. Birmingham shares one letter with London so that's close enough.
And I know it's not blues, but it just shares a characteristic, lyrically. I think. Or something.
Thank God he doesn't use his Brummie accent anyway.

Radge: Spit on me Dickie. Ah go on. Then I'll throw my knickers at you.

Baino: I'd forgotten Lily Allen. She's anavva wan.

Kerryview! New reader! Welcome! Woohoo! (says he, not wanting to reply properly and further reveal lack of muscial knowledge)

English Mum said...

Grrr. I agree. Bloody Lily (My Dad's Famous so I can say f*ck without getting told olff) Allen really pulls my plonker (metaphorically, natch). Go and get a proper job, silly moo.

English Mum said...

Ooops, I mean 'off'. Trying to eat Weetabix and type with one hand. Sorry

Adullamite said...

Any song with La'andan accent is garbage! I hear that sort of fing all day don' I innit? Ah mean know wot ah mean like, yeah?

Frightfully upsetting to those of us who can speak proper like.

K8 the Gr8 said...

I always love those songs the first few times, I even bought Lily allen and the Street's albums but only listened to them once since.

They should have a warning sign on the album covers: 'Warning - this CD will bore the shite out of you in 5 minutes.'

Thriftcriminal said...

Hmm, I'd give Kate Nash one though, she looked "well 'ot" on Buzzcocks. How about surreal blues:

Woke up this morning, ma woman was dead.
In came a reindeer, and stepped on her head.
Ooooh I got those reindeer steppin on ma dead woman's head blues.....

Terence McDanger said...

Yes the fact that she's - to quote Rosie - "a bit ridey", certainly helps her case somewhat but I just can't be doing with the whole Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins accent.
