True’s Thin Kids Land Kate Nash Supports

As if you needed more proof that joke bands have legs in this country (other than The Galvatrons, of course), The Thin Kids have been picked as main supports for Kate Nash’s upcoming Splendour In The Grass sideshows.

The new “vanity project” for music critic Everett True (“Hasn’t his whole career been a vanity project?” the cynic in you may ask) and Brisbane musicians Edward Guglielmino and Scotty Regan, The Thin Kids will play three shows with the flame-haired UK singer next month. They will perform at Melbourne’s East Brunswick Club on August 3; a sold-out show at The Corner Hotel, also in Melbourne, on August 4; and at Sydney’s Metro Theatre on August 5.

The band played their first gig at Brisbane’s The Troubadour in February; a performance we described as “in-joke that's so bad, it's good”. Here’s some footage of them playing to a bunch of disinterested skaters (courtesy Eternal Soundcheck):

Who is Kate Nash, and is she just trying to butter Ev Trueckeray up for a positive review?

Now Sydney and Melbourne get to share Brisbane's pain.

Kate Nash is the singer of pretty bland and inoffensive pop/indie-pop songs. Boring as hell but very good looking.

She sold out her corner show and another is on sale at The East.

The Cribs lurve Everett True. She is dating one of them.


black wasp!  said about 4 years ago:

Now you have introduced yet another mystery element here. Who are The Cribs? And why does their lurving Everett True have anything to do with Kate Nash (or is The Cribs a lady?) dating one of 'them' (who is 'them'? The Cribs? Everett True?)?


black wasp!  said about 4 years ago:

Wait - I get it! Kate Nash is dating The Cribs!


FrankieTeardrop  said about 4 years ago:

Sounds like The Cannanes.


mud  said about 4 years ago:

I could have stated that better. The Cribs are buddies with True, he supported them in Brisbane earlier this year, I forget the exact wording but they called his band either the best in Brisbane or Australia or something like that. Nash is dating of The Cribs, so would stand to reason she's a fan too.

Actually, from a Cribs interview in NME -

Right now I love…
The Thin Kids
“They’re from Brisbane, Australia. It’s [music journo] Everett True’s new band. It’s very
freeform and loose, and being Everett, the lyrics are amazing. It’s very uncompromising > and unforgiving. It’s much noisier, much more dissonant and unapologetic.”

Are The Cribs famous like Kate Nash?


unvisible  said about 4 years ago:

Sounds like The Cannanes.

As in- people are only interested due to some tenuous link to Kurt Cobain?


FrankieTeardrop  said about 4 years ago:

The Cannanes have a link to Kurt Cobain?

Oh wait... K Records, of course.

This is around the level of support I'd expect to see for a Brisbane band from a Melbourne-based website.

Are you trying to say that you luv Kate Nash?

I like being from Adelaide. It makes people feel uncomfortable for some reason.

terribly important, relevant band right there.

This thread does not have everything as there is no slap bass.


phallic baldwin  said about 4 years ago:

Oh no, I think Sarah McLeod defined the spirit of a generation of disaffected South Australians.

Their regional tour with Eskimo Joe was one of the most disturbing shows of my life; mainly because I could see horrible premonitions of scenes from The Accused.


angelicIV  said about 4 years ago:

so who won? the guys in the internet or the guys outside the internet?


Jerry Thackray  said about 4 years ago:

Melbourne vs other state that isn't Melbourne, artist and friends logging in to defend themselves, editor vs artist argument, Striborg, Striborg breakdancing, Striborg's real name being 'revealed' repeatedly, people wanting to interview Block because he's Striborg, debates about authenticity and ambition, debates about sexism, Zaphod, Andrew McMillen, other blogs asking to be credited in news stories, people bitching about news stories, Ashton Kutcher's greatest feat (banging what's her face), Franz Ferdinand, someone from Adelaide, Angelic being mental, the Cannanes, tandoori boners, Andrew Harper, sampling wristies, ZOND, grim malice, internet etiquette, BAM, Duchamp, the Cookie Monster, Eldritch, Kate Nash, Snug, Collinsvale, Ross Arden and Everett True asking for work.

If Mess And Noise don't start using me after this, I'm giving up and going home. Oh no, wait... that's what you all want to hear.

MissAustralia2003  said about 4 years ago:

so many things in that article are so wrong, i've corrected some quotes:

''This represents the development of what people want from live music these days - they're used to festivals that offer bam! for their buck.

we trust people can dress themselves, we want to offer a bar that provides music and we aren't going to charge for drinks, only charge for the music,''

''These are the rooms that musicians procreate in,''

''But if we've got nowhere to pop up, we're going to leave and great music may well leave with us,'' he sooked.

''Council has a vision for Brisbane as Australia's new world city that supports creative ideas and industries such as live music,'' she says. (But) any future live music venues in the suburbs would find cheap spaces, and tolerant residential communities.


MissAustralia2003  said about 4 years ago:

like bam, the mindset of eldon raises red flags in that he says

''people want multi-dimensional bars and clubs ''where you can see a great band, have a drink and stay for the DJ afterwards.''''

as bam did by putting the idea of a festival greater priority than the idea of musicians performing, eldon gives the bar and club higher priority to musician performance (which he says is free). i think i'll give my wallet higher priority in venues/events where the music is highest priority. but that's just me


MissAustralia2003  said about 4 years ago:

i do agree with trevaskis that brisbane needs to amend it's licensing so that more than just one acoustic guitarist can play in venues in the suburbs. if that is the case it sounds horrifically archaic, and discriminates against the suburbs

when i see this thread on the front page of discussions i get this sinking feeling in my guts and then i spew all over the desk

Kate Nash interview:

[Everett True, the lead singer of band The Thin Kids who are supporting you during your Australia tour, is quite a controversial figure in the Australian music industry. What led to you choosing his band as your support?

I met him before, we did an interview together in Brighton like a few years ago and he’s obviously quite a well-known character because of Nirvana. My boyfriend [ The Cribs’ Ryan Jarman ] knows him and he’s had him as a support band and he was really nice about some of my music and the new record and stuff so I just thought might as well get him to play because he played with The Cribs a few months back and I just thought it might be fun.](http://www.fasterlouder.com.au/features/24835/Kate-Nash.htm)
