Naima's band Chewing Pics

Naima from cycle 4 has a new band called Chewing Pics, and they just released their first EP last month, called Tarantula. She does vocals, and oddly enough, her style reminds me a lot of Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill/Le Tigre fame. Whether that's a good or bad thing is up to you, I guess ;)

Check out their myspace page and have a listen. There's also some new-ish pictures of her on the Pics page.

I can definitely hear the Kathleen Hanna in there (more Le Tigre era, though!) Overall, Naima sounds more like Miho Hatori.

I stopped listening 57 secs into it. The background wallpaper needs to be changed ASAP. It makes my eyes bleed.

Not really my style of music, but I definitely hear the Kathleen Hanna.

The music isn't bad in small doses; hard to listen to an entire song all the way through though.

Good for her, I say.


They all turned out entertainingly weird.

Naima - weird
Kahlen - tragically weird :(
Keenya - ..still Keenya.
Michelle - married Johnny Fairplay.
Tatianna - drew a fetus on her pregnant belly.

Cycle 4, I love you. It must be a result of Tyra's histrionic fit. All that yelling scarred the girls.

I am now more curious than ever to know what Brittany's up to.

I agree on all counts - what happened to Kahlen that was tragically weird?

I guess Kahlen got a whole mess of tattoos, ran up against a whole bunch of serious emotional issues, couldn't get any modeling work, and has since given up. (Although perhaps not in that order).

She kinda looks like a ho on her myspace.

Is there a link to her MySpace in the FAQ of this community? (I'm kind of scared to look at her page, heh).

Brittany was my fav. She should have won.

I loved Brittany too. She was wild and fun, but she was also good-hearted.

Agreed. The "your flame is fading" (or whatever) was utterly pointless.

Anyone could have been the singer for this band with how much they distorted it.

Ewww, in all their pictures, the subtitles are all like one word and lower-case. I hate that, it just feels so pretentious. It's like when people title blog or journal posts with one word, I just wanna vomit everywhere. Like "Hope" or something. Ewww.

Oh yeah, the bands sucks, and no offense but Kathleen Hanna is miles better than them.

Do I sound like a jerk? Sorry if I do, I'm just cranky.

I can't deal with Naima. She's not cute, she's a wannabe Gwen Stefani (the No Doubt, not solo Gwen), and she looks like she would smell bad.

Just so... high pitched. I don't like it.
