Kate Tempest's 2014 album 'Everybody Down' earned her a Mercury nomination, and that is just one accomplishment notched up by this serial high-achiever. Performing live at the age of 16 saw her securing gigs opening for John Cooper Clarke and Billy Bragg among others. Add a Ted Hughes award for her writing and a nod from the Poetry Society, and it all becomes pretty impressive. 'Let them Eat Chaos' is a long poem, written for performance. The vinyl includes download code.
6/10 Mex Mexico Customer review, 20th October 2016
4:18 in the morning. Without warning. Esther thinks ‘this music is appalling. Wrote some poems, thought I’d have a go. Got some chancer with a Kaossilator pro. Last record was a hit. Not shit. Got my name out there a little bit. Got so many words. Got people to fool. Hope no-one learns I was a product of the Brit School. See I got roots. I keep it real. Not interested in selling out. Not interested in mass appeal. Esther’s from the streets she started low. Now she’s selling vinyl for £30 a go. She supports the poor. She sees their plight. She wonders why she now can’t sleep at night. She’s got to get ready. Gotta find sik beats. Talk over them in Shoreditch to the cultural elite. But she’s gotta speak out. Gotta represent. Then she’s off down Camden to get some money spent. She thinks about her book. She's told its really good. Turned Harry into a girl, just because she could. Doesn't worry about her fans. They saw him as a man. Just like in her last vinyl. You know the one. Reasonably priced and vital. Everybody Down. So new and real. But hey got more money with her new record deal. So she looks at the clock. Thinks about the troubles she has seen. She prays for her lost country. She sees it’s 4.19….
