Rough Trade

Posted by monkeon on November 10, 2010

Rough Trade fulfil most of the critera for a place on this website.
1) It was around in 1996, so it had no chance of looking nice
2) It’s clearly down to one person learning while they go along
3) It features a really shit animated .gif drawn in MS Paint.

“I was gonna do a big happy xmas kind of thing but just before xmas i was really sick (yes – really sick as in vomiting through my nose………) so i didn’t quite get round to it……but lets see if i can do a happy new year thing instead..if not…happy new year starting now!!!!” is actually the sort of thing Kate Nash would sing about. I wonder if visiting this website is where she got all her ideas? (even though she’d have been 9 at the time)

Certainly, this animated gif has the Nash hair…

If this theory is true, then hopefully Kate might soon be planning on sporting this exciting new look…

“New Rave”
