This year, our FAULT Favourite Festival ‘Secret Garden Party’ is back with a clear message to the fame worshipping and excluding masses, “bore off, we all run this town!” This summer the Secret Garden Party invites all into the most inclusive VIP-LOL-OFF for their 15th SGP ever themed – “Sweet Dreams. Are made of these? And who are we to disagree…” It’s no surprise that we LOVE attending SGP each year and would likely still attend even if the lineup wasn’t to our taste but time and time again they have filled their lineup with FAULT Favourite bands and this year is no exception.

FAULT attends – Kate Nash x The Rodnik Band for Girl Gang TV

wenn22071884

Last Thursday saw the London launch of Girl Gang TV, a brand new online channel dedicated to spreading positive vibes of love, truth, self-empowerment and feminism. Its creator – none other than platinum-selling singer/songwriter (and FAULT Issue 14 star) Kate Nash – teamed up with FAULT Featured cult fashion label The Rodnik Band for the invite-only event, which was hosted at the private East London home and design studio of the brand’s creator, Philip Colbert, and wife Charlotte. Intrigued by Girl Gang TV’s novel fusion of aesthetics and activism, FAULT headed to Shoreditch to find out more.

Hurrying in from the chilly winter night, guests soon filled the intimate space, where names like actor Sophie Kennedy Clark, celebrity stylist Rebekah Roy, style journalist Stefanie Jones and all-girl punk act The Tuts mixed with some of Nash’s most ardent fans. Popcorn, sweets and beer soon made the rounds, while many a talking point was had with The Rodnik Band’s colourful pop art-themed designs, which were dotted around the room (we especially liked the embellished sofa can dress and primary block backpack).

wenn22071882

Kate, blonde-haired, red-lipsticked and wearing a graphic grid dress, then plopped down on a large octopus print beanbag – with everything designed by The Rodnik Band, natch. Once everyone had taken their seat on the floor around her (oh god, my joints), she then gave a quick talk on the Girl Gang TV project, presenting it as a new platform to share ideas across music, style, politics, art, science, business, the environment and beyond. Using a combination of art and humour, we are told how the project is all about spreading messages, championing worthy causes like equal rights and animal protection – or, in other words, ‘doing cool shit to change the world.’

wenn22071887

“I want to learn from other people and gain new perspectives on what’s happening in the world. I want to give a voice to those that haven’t yet been given a microphone,” as Kate puts it.

Us attendees are then treated to a screening of the introductory episode of Girl Gang TV, before Kate brings out her guitar to perform two acoustic songs chosen specially for the launch (‘Free My Pussy’ and ‘You’re So Cool, I’m So Freaky’, in case you were wondering). Finally, inspired and several bottles of Peroni in, it was time to hit the afterparty at The Waiting Room, where Echo Boom Generation, Bones and Swampmother joined Kate on the decks to round off a fun evening of creativity and girl power.

Exclusive Kate Nash Interview for FAULT Issue 14

You can spend your life biting down on one thing. You can waste all of your time on one idea. You can get your little brain into one big mess.” Kate Nash’s third album, Girl Talk, unravels with these words, and in so many ways, it’s telling as to why she chose to transform herself so much, so fast.

FAULT: Does it worry you that existing fans might fade away while you’re accumulating new ones with this big change?

Kate: For me, the previous albums were time capsules.  Even with the new album, that’s what it is.  It’s not like I can’t relate to it after it’s in the past, because I do, and I can enjoy [fans] looking at them in that way.

Your music videos have been at the forefront along with your music since the very beginning. We all perked up when we saw your collaborations with Kinga Burza, who directed many of your earlier videos. How did that come about?

Back at the time, Kinga was very influential, but right now I’m working with Lee Jones.  I feel like I’ve made the best videos that I’ve ever done with him.  I feel like we’ve connected very easily, and you find people where you don’t have to talk about all the details because you just make that connection.  I just shot the video for “3AM”, and I think it’s the best one that we’ve done.

Why the powerful anthems for women now with Girl Talk?
I think it has always been there.  I have always wanted to empower women.  I think it has a lot to do with ageing, too.  I’m older now, and I feel more in control of what I’m doing.  I have my own label now, too.  It takes time to figure out who you are and who you want to work with.
