Kate Nash Goes Punk

Following her debut album, “Made of Bricks,” the Ireland born songstress, Kate Nash is preppin’ for her second album. Only there won’t be no preppy in this album. Apparently she wants to fuse some punk into her new sound. So is she jumping on an already worn down bandwagon, or has she always liked punk […]
