Party EP Tackles Important Life-Questions whilst retaining that Festive Boost

 

Festive season records are tricky beasts. Do you go all in on true spiritual stuff or go on a hedonistic kick? Well we've just passed the masters for three new songs to the distributors and sent out our press release for Party, our sixth and final EP in 2021 with the aim of bridging that gap.

For anyone that has been paying attention, the first song choice will be no surprise. Yes, we will be answering that eternal question of whether Santa Claus is real or not. What Time Is Santa?  injects a slap happy drumloop and poptastic call and response party vocal and not only answers the great question, but also tells you the time of his arrival.

Play this to children who are at that awkward age where they don't really know for sure, but they have suspicions and that will be one less awkward conversation you'll have to have,

Any conversation in December should at some point touch upon the real meaning of Christmas. No, not that one, The other one. We've written a song that explores organised religion and sets out the arguments. Please don't confuse organised religion and faith. We don't. Preach Me Down is a slab of a song and you will love. It wears its Chunk extremely well, and is probably our favourite video for any song we've ever done. Before you ask, yes that is Cyril Smith, legendary bon-viveur dressed in ecumenical robes and standing behind a wall of human skulls. You're welcome.


Finally we have a dose of light and airy pop. But is it? As the Ship Goes Down may come across as lightweight. It was written and recorded in a single moment - we shit you not, the recording was intended as a rough demo after a bottle of fizz too many, and we just ended up weaving a few bits of pixie dust into the recording because it captured a moment. It might be frippery. It might be a haunting tale of lifeboat necrophilia. It might be a warning about getting a haircut right before you go to a party. In trurth it is about all that and none of it. Yes, there is a Chris Morris reference in there.

PARTY will stagger into the crisp. bright watery sunlight in the first few days of December and will be our signal to relax a little at Koala Studios. That said, we've got some true monsters of rock in store for you next year, all recorded and mixed, so do not expect to get off lightly in January.

The Other Side Upgrades Us From Tequila Punch to Vodka Punch

 

Ted takes research very very seriously. When Other Side Reviews described us back in September as being like a punch in the face after several Tequila shots he first beat the shit out of the studio teddy bear after drowning it in tequila and later drank the rest of the bottle and had Sydd and Pete smack him across the chops repeatedly. As Sydd and Pete had been waiting for a chance to repay him for the whole angle grinder incident they did not demur and Ted spent a week with black eyes and a good idea what OSR meant.

Pete is now very excited because they have now described us as like being punched after vodka shots. He has bought a 1L bottle of poundshop vodka and is flexing his punching-muscle.

The teddy bear is in hiding.

The new review for Cut is awesome. Please give it a read, we're only going to mention some tidbits here.

Never ones to shy away from controversial topics in their music, UK-based 9 o’clock Nasty bring serious messages to the fore in smile-inducing music.

Contaversial? Hmm well I suppose we chose the end of the world (literal or metaphorical), the nepotism of modern ultra-liberalism and jack-booted dance moves so there might be some edge. Mind you the next EP tackles whether Santa is real, the entire basis for organised religion and necrophilia on a liferaft so that might be even edgier.

We try to look side on and avoid preachery-nonsense. Try.

From the first second I heard 9 o’clock Nasty, I knew I was in for something special and Cut got my heart pumping in a wonderfully ear-bleeding way. Is ear-bleeding in a metaphorical sense wonderful? In this case, you’ll love it!

This whole being in a band is never about money and always about art, engagement and craving attention. To read something like this about our little garageband is the affirmation we need to keep on kicking out bundles of beats. Thank you Nicole, we salute you!

Sign up for the 9 o'clock Nasty Newsletter

 Friends! We're doing a snap promotion to encourage you to sign up for our newsletter. Get a free song every month & also FREE (yes for £0 with postage included to anywhere on Earth) a badge and pair of doll shoes. Sign up here & feel the Nasty Love 

You sign up, we send you a newsletter by email. Never more than one a month, we are not Spam Assassins. You give us your address and pick pink or black and we send you the relevant badge and doll's shoes.

But that's Crazy you may say. Why give free stuff and pay for postage to encourage people to sign up and what is the free song you may also enquire?

In reverse order. The free song this month is a remix of Monstruosa by Brynn Chipps. It's quite a major reworking of the song and we adore it.

Why?

Well: Facebook.

We've had a couple of "scares" this month where music we wrote and published and can prove we own the rights to was taken down with no right of appeal. We know of a band that we love, that had their account closed (and we know they hadn't done anything suspect to deserve it). Things like this make you want to be able to talk to your audience directly.

We've partially protected ourselves by diversifying over Instagram (yes we know...), YouTube, TikTok and Amazing Radio. Indeed we will have a go at making connections on as many routes as we have time for. Across all of them we are getting a lot of connections and daily plays. But there is always that slight sense of discomfort.

So help us feel good. Help us feel confident and connect direct with us. We will not take the piss, use your email for advertising or any other nonsense. We will give you exclusive early access to songs and try and make the email entertaining. We'll pop a badge in the post for you. They're nice badges. Sign Up.

Akbekent Spew the Same Dumb Error Strewn Crap

 

So, Akbekent literally copied and pasted Motion New's crappy and stupid review word for word. So we have copied and pasted our point by point response in the same spirit.

We love attention and we love good reviews, but by "good" we mean they make sense and are fun, rather than universally positive about the band. A salute to the talented ppl who have written about us.

This piece from Motion News has picqued us. If being picqued could be a thing. Ow! There, it did it again. Fucker.

Factual stuff:

  • delivering a number one hit single, FALSE
  • GRAMMY® nominated multiplatinum FALSE FALSE (we did once pretend to win a Leicester Tourism Award when in fact we didn't enter)
  • powerhouse trio 9 o’clock TRUE
  • Nasty have released their highly anticipated single, Sexy Back, on 5 November TRUE
  • via Records DK London, the country’s leading music company. FALSE
Oh dear.
  • single features the band’s history-making comeback single, “Sexy Back” HALF TRUE. Ted actually has a bit of sick in his mouth after reading that. If we ever go away. believe us there will never be a comeback. The single does feature Sexy Back.
  • Upon release, “Sexy Back” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, marking the first #1 for the band and the first #1 debut from a group this century. Recently ranked #1 on Billboard’s critic’s picks list of the “50 Best Songs of 2019,” it has become a song of the summer anthem, rapidly ascending to #1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart for the last 1 week – the most for any song this year TRUE but of course they are talking about..... the original/ Hang on do they think we ARE Justin Timberlake?

What could possibly have given them that idea?

  • with the band’s follow up single “Terror Couple Kill Colonel” climbing closely behind. FALSE Oh my giddy twice deceased Uncle from Margate, where is this spewing from? Terror Couple follows very close behind. So close that it is in fact what is technically known as the OTHER SIDE of the SAME SINGLE. Also that is a Bauhaus song and we love it.
  • Danzig is incorrect. EH? This is literally copied and pasted from our own website.  Danzig is always right, go read his reviews. But he was wrong when reviewing our song.
  • Sexy Back was begging to be reimagined for the new era of garage rock sensibilities. TRUE TRUE TRUE. To use the colloquial expression "it was fucking gagging for it."
  • 9 o’clock Nasty take it to a new level of darkness, where the ugliness of perverted lyricism takes on a whole new meaning. THANK YOU. We hope that is true. It is an ugly song as we just shone a spotlight on its dark, sexually twisted soul.
  • With this glitterball disco deconstruction, there can be no compromises. TRUE
  • “What the fuck?” says Justin Timberlake. TRUE. Well no actually but we so fucking wish it was.

MangoWave: Let's Get Nasty Like It's 9 o'clock!

 

We have a huge soft spot for MangoWave because we've read around their site a bit and they are the real deal - not just genuine music fans but people that care. So a good review from them is special.

Please see the original and give them the clicks.

Catch Nasty seems so long ago now, which is stupid as it's only been about for about 6 weeks, but the music on it is from the summer and we've written new stuff that we're excited about. The decision to make it two honking long mp3 files or a physical product probably wasn't commercial genius but we love it and we're super-proud of it. We still have copies for sale if you want one.

We do like a label, and MangoWave give the best ones out like medals that we shall wear with pride.
Avantgardist, nihilist, and artistic Punk, Post-Punk, Art Rock, Garage Rock, Funk, Wave

Wave is a new one and we thank them for it.

As they say, let's party like it's 9 o'clock.
