EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW:

his is London. For all the bizarre nightlife

sights it may endure it’s not particularly known

as as a place you’d see grown men dancing like

idi idiots to music that’s not totally danceable. Nor

is is it the environment in which they’ll normally

drape their arms around each other and sway.

Yet that’s precisely what’s happening as Shotgun

Romance take to the stage.

It’s quite inspiring to see an all girl band turn an

audience filled with otherwise stoic men into squealing

teens. And they do it without effort. There’s no fancy

decorations, no glitter on the walls or expensive

lighting, the music these girls make, creates an entirely

unique atmosphere, that’s purely their own.

Shotgun Romance’s This is the Modern Waste has held

onto it’s Number One status in the Who charts again this

“WE’RE JUST THREE KIDS WHO PLAY MUSIC. I DONT GET WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT.” Lucy Culshaw

week (12 March 2011). The girls were ecstatic when we

revealed to them that their record was the longest

Number One in the past decade, having stayed at the

top for the past nine weeks. And, after a lot of nagging,

we managed to score our very own exclusive interview

behind the scenes at the current hottest band’s latest

gig in London to find out what these Oxford born girls

are really about...

“We had to move out of Lotte’s because the neighbours

kept complaining” Shotgun’s drummer, Alice Jackson

says dejectedly of the production of the Oxford born

trio’s latest album, which mostly took place in the home

of Lotte Dobeni’s folks. She’s apparently unaware how

Ginger and Keith Moon inspired drum solos blasting

from the small, three bedroom cottage isn’t going to go

down well in the small family village of Ardington,

Oxfordshire.

When asked about their ultimate stardom, it seems it’s

Lotte Dobeni, the guitarist’s, turn to speak. “Well, yeah,

it’s cool and everything but we try not to let it bother

us... Don’t want it to affect the music, you know?

Because that why we’re all here. That’s how we got this

far... Because of the music, she expresses before Lucy

Culshaw puts her mark on the conversation.

“Yeah, Lotte’s totally right, we’re just three kids who

play music. If I’m honest, I don’t get what all the fuss is

about. We’re not perfect– far from it! How are we

different to any other band out there? What makes us

so special..?”
