An excellent part of their 6music show is Song Wars, where both chaps write and record a humourous song on the same topic and listeners vote on the best effort.
The subject last weekend was a Kate Nash-style song and they really outdid themselves! Not only did they accurately mimic Nash's sound, they also managed to make their songs very funny. Plus I've not been able to get those catchy tunes out of my head since first hearing them.
Kate Nash really seems to get on a lot of people's nerves. Having only heard about two of her songs I must confess I'm not that bothered either way - I've somehow managed to avoid her without having to try too hard. Apparently Adam and Joe were similarly unfamiliar with Nash and so took her album away to listen to. Hearing the common aspects that they both picked out (affected accent, obsession with bums and complaints about a rubbish boyfriend), such irritation seems understandable!
